Abhinav Bindra's Road to Beijing

The day after!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday, August 11, 2008 – 7:42 PM

They have all been telling me what a huge achievement winning Gold is. I realise that but frankly the enormity of the goodwill generated has caught me by surprise. Honestly enough it really has not changed me, I am still the same Abhinav who just a day ago was hanging around alone in my room in the Olympic village. Frankly, all the attention is a bit overwhelming. I am not much good at making loud public pronouncements. That in no way means that this is not the most intense experience of my life.
For more than a decade now my life has been all about my sport. In fact, I do not have a life beyond the confines of the 10m range. I have had a range built in my own home to cut down any possibility of distraction and to be able to practise my sport whenever the fancy strikes me. It all did pay off, didn't it?
It has all still not sunk in. I will post more once the feeling settles.
I ran away from all the media and official attention yesterday after I had done the bit I had do in keeping with my new-found status. Instead I chose to go to a quiet dinner with some friends.
I would like to reiterate that everyone who represents India at the Olympic Games has put in years of toil and sweat. I ask the Indian people to support our athletes more. It is fine to celebrate our achievements but it is just as important to keep up the backing when we are not on top of our game.
It is important for India to do better at Olympic sport as these are the true measure of a nation's sporting depth. I wish more private initiatives come up with corporate support apart from the backing of the government. The joy that the nation feels at my win is humbling. I just wish that this is repeated more and more often.
With our depth of talent and expanse of people I firmly believe India can be a world-class sporting power. What we need are precise systems. I will try to do my bit at grooming the next generation. I would like to appeal to each Indian to also do their bit in prodding us out of sporting complacency.

Congratulations Abhinav,

It was indeed your day, our day, India's day. Can't really express my feelings in words. Can't wait to give you a hero's welcome. I was at my office when the news came on the radio and everyone jumped tpo their feet. We immediately rushed to the Cafe' to catch the glimpses of the golden moment. Can't feel more proud when the anthem was being played and the Tiranga was at the top. I a sure this is just a start there are many to come. The floodgates had already opened. Now it is time since you have taken the lead in going all the way. Enjoy the rest of the days at Beijing. God bless you!

Congrats again...

Hi Abhi,

You have opened the door for the Indian youth and made them believe that "Yes, Indians also can win Gold in Olympics"

I think this is as important as your own Gold Medal, I hope you'll agree with me.

Heartiest Congratulations

Hi Abhinav,

Many congratulations.
I was one of the first to blog about your proud moment.
It took an olympic gold to break my laziness and silence for more than 2 months to blog again.

http://aneeshkdeepak.blogspot.com/2008/08/gold-for-india.html

All the best to you!

Aneesh.

Natasha said...

I was one of those millions of Indians who thought it a matter of pride to decry the achievements of Indian athletes at the Olympics - one of those "oh yes, every time we go, we talk of dozens of medals, but we never come back with any" kinds.

THANK YOU for letting your deeds tell me and people like me that EVERYONE does their best, and the difference between winning and not winning is not significant.

I salute your achievement, but even more, I salute you for remembering all those other Indian athletes in your moment of triumph.

And, I never dreamt I would live to see the day when an Indian stood tall on the victory podium - thank you for making that happen.

aativas said...

Congratulations Abhinav! We are proud of you. Your humility touched me a lot. What you write is correct, we need to support our sportspersons more - because wining is not as easy as it sounds. It is hard work, determination, capacity and a bit of luck. I am sure your win will make Indians aware about the importance of non-cricketing sports. You gave us joy and pride. I prey almighty that you and many more sportspersons would bring this happiness and glory again and again.

proudlyindian said...

Thanks! Rarely do I get an opportunity to display my real name, which in common parlance is known as Screen Name-- Proudly Indian.

Congratz Abhinav, You are the most polite sports person I have ever seen. Wish you even more success in future.

You set a really good example for all the sports men. Your hard work gave you the desired one. Congratulations. All indians are proud of you.

DON said...

Abhinav,
While one does congratulate you on your achievement, it only serves to highlight the need for world class facilities to achieve world class results! You were lucky that it these were provided to you in-house. How many other Abhinavs in other disciplines we can produce only if the Powers-That-Be get off their backsides and look to the greater good of the nation instead of their own!

c aptitude said...

Hearty congratulations from the soul of all Indians.
At this moment I feel very much proud that I am lucky to be an Indian.

I expect that you do not require much suggestions from my side as your mental diet is very strong than mine.

But I would like to suggest you that please do not try to behave like cricketers.

Be a “SILENT KILLER WITH GOOD ATTITUDE” and expect much more good news from you

vishvesh said...

U have done every indian proud by getting the Gold medal.Its Unbelievable.Continue this way.u deserve it the most.GOD BLESS YOU....

Bharat Jhurani said...

Sport is given an almost step motherly treatment in India.

Written by Avnish Anand

Friday, 11 January 2008

Sport is given an almost step motherly treatment in India. While the academic and professional achievements get highlighted, besides a cricketer no other sportsperson is even given an opportunity to attain glory. Avnish Anand suggests a way out.
Brazil is the largest exporter of footballers in the world. India takes the cake when it comes to IT professionals. Economically, the two countries are clubbed together – developing nations on the cusp of global superstardom – two of the countries featured in the now famous BRIC report. But, whereas a Brazilian dreams of sending his kids to the football academies run by Flamengo or Sao Paulo; an Indian only thinks of the IITs and IIMs.

There is no denying however, that, these educational dreams have made India what it is today – a nation teeming with English-speaking, mathematically proficient, technologically and managerially capable individuals, out to capture the world. Jawaharlal Nehru might have established the 'Gandhi Dynasty' in New Delhi – a lineage which could break the Mughals' record of ruling this country, but he more than made up for it by spawning an educational revolution, which has had as much national participation as any other in the history of this country.

The fervent drive to get your child into a top educational institution has also resulted in an overall apathy towards sports. And this is not even a point of debate. By apathy, I mean that Indian parents never dream of making a sportsperson out of children. Not that they'd stop their kids from going out and winning a medal or two at an inter-school event. But their hearts will swell with greater pride if their offspring secures admission into a top-tier b-school. They'll pawn their ancestral land to send you to IIT coaching in Kota but there are few Vece Paes' around who'd send their kids to the Nick Bollettieri Academy for tennis lessons.

Hmmm, but, what about the cricket and tennis academies which have mushroomed all over the country? Well, I suggest you go visit one and check out the ages of the children attending coaching. Not many there would be taking an important public examination in near future. These academies are mostly a replacement for the colony playgrounds, which are fast disappearing. Kids need some physical recreation after all.

So, what is that I am driving at? All of this is well chronicled already. Am I abhorring the parents and calling them educational zealots? Absolutely not. After all, I am a proud product of this educational drive and a grateful one at that. And, I am sure most of you fall into the same category. The idea is to think of newer ways of channeling this drive; the single-minded doggedness which has become the cornerstone of all the economic glory. What if they were equally determined to make sporting heroes out of their kids, a la Brazil?

First, let's make a few things clear. We are largely talking of the Indian middle-class. The upper echelon of society is more assured of securing their kids' future and doesn't necessarily take the education route. And even if they do, their options extend beyond Indian shores. The middle class masses are very limited in their means and subsequently in their dreams as well. They are not bothered about the quality of higher education but about basic education. Various communities like the Chotanagpur tribals actually dream of sporting success – something which might land them a class IV government job. Though given a chance the middle-class has the wherewithal to dream big and stands to gain a lot as well. So we in effect do have all the right ingredients to kick-start a revolution.

Secondly, rather than questioning the premise, please think of ways of making the options workable. Don't write in, that this kind of channeling cannot happen or will not work in the manner envisaged. Think of ways of tinkering with the models to make it a win-win for all involved.

So, here's the proposition. The Indian middle class will do anything to get their kids into an IIT or IIM or even one of the lesser institutions. What if sporting excellence, and excellence here is not just representing your district, could open new doors of admission into one of these hallowed portals. Wouldn't it motivate parents of physically gifted but academically mediocre children to try the alternative route? Could this lead to a paradigm shift in the aspirations of the modern, Indian middle-class parent; producing a new breed of outstanding sportspersons.

Step one is to open new doors of admission. This can be done in two ways. But first a statutory warning- 'Please read through the entire article and do think about it. Don't just jump out of your seat'.

One way of doing it is by having a sports quota in all the top academic institutions, all of them. Make it mandatory like the SC/ST reservation. And simultaneously encourage all kinds of inter-college competitions. In India, we live with admissions (a large number at that) based on class and community. I guess not many would mind having a few based on athletic ability and that too of the highest order. At least, these guys will bring in the sporting laurels. Some will win international honours. And all of us would certainly take enough pride in that. For those of you, who still need convincing, go check out the frenzied atmosphere during inter-hostel clashes in the nearest IIT. Delhi cricket benefited from the sports quotas in Delhi University and the Hindu- Stephens rivalry has churned out India regulars, frequently. And this was before the IT revolution when school goers nursed ambitions of making it to a top DU college. Also, there will be enough old boys contributing to the development of new infrastructure. In the US or the UK, where college sports are huge, alumni make all kinds of contributions to make their alma mater an athletic powerhouse. If Vinod Gupta can set up VG SOM, there will be others to fund stadiums and equipment with so much pride at stake.

The challenge will be to define the level of sporting achievement to be eligible; the number of seats to be made available through this route and setting a minimum academic benchmark.

In India, people fabricate fake caste certificates to take advantage of reservation system. The sporting qualification should not be based on some worthless piece of paper but achievements which were media-worthy – a national-level performance at the very least. As for the number of seats, it should not be too few - so that it doesn't motivate or too many - so that the run of the mill guys stand a chance to make it. We need to encourage people with real potential. The academic benchmark is imperative to ensure that the incoming athletes don't make for miserable academic misfits. There are enough sportspersons who are blessed with scholastic aptitude. Rahul Dravid's brother is an IIM graduate and his parents had ensured that had he himself not made it as a cricketer, he would still have had a successful alternate career. Having the comfort of a sports quota for their son would have given them greater confidence to encourage young Rahul's cricketing dreams. There are others as well – the likes of Kumble and Srinath who have strong academic backgrounds.

The other model could be an extension of the sports hostels system which has borne great fruit for UP cricket and Orissa hockey. Have sports colleges which offer top-notch sports training as well as high-quality professional education to student athletes. A precedent for a college with 100% reservation was set with the establishment of the Army Institute of Technology in Pune. This was done to benefit the defense children who suffer from the nature of their father's job. Why not give a similar cushion to aspiring champions who have to make a few academic sacrifices. The education imparted in this model might be a little inferior to the IITs and IIMs but the standard of sports infrastructure will be top-notch. Rather than distributing the meager sports budget over a numerous colleges, the authorities can limit it to these specialized institutions.

That takes care of step one. Step two is to examine whether these new opportunities can harness the obsession of the Indian middle-class. The idea is to change the mindset. Most Indian parents live by the dictum – 'Padhoge Likhoge To Banoge Nawab, Kheloge Kudoge To Banoge Kharab'. They know that very few make it to the top of the sporting pyramid and the gulf between the haves and the have-nots in terms of financial rewards is humongous. And if you leave a few sports like cricket and football, the haves also have difficult lives. Stories of Asian champs working as ticket collectors are abound. For most Indians a career in sports is too risky a proposition. Now the risk of failure is minimized. Their children have two routes to a great education and the sporting route has the upside of sporting glory as well. In some cases the sporting route could be the easier one. It's like two jobs, where one pays a little less but gives you ESOPS also. And thanks to the new professional leagues lots of second-rung talent can also earn a decent living from the sport. Please be aware of the fact that a national champion in any sport in any age category stands a very good chance of winning a sports scholarship to a US university as well. Could a combination of these factors herald a sporting revolution?

India is not exactly a country full of physically gifted young people. But with our kind of population, a small percentage also could be a lot. And the idea is to give this lot their best chance, with the full backing of their parents and the back-up of a college degree. Will Mr Arjun Singh please stand up?

Its great to see indian flag unfurling and flying high at the beijing olympics. You have inspired lot of indians especially our youth to come out of mediocrity sense of belief and truly strive for perfection. Indians practise mediocrity every day in their life whether it is laying out new roads or building bridges. You have shown what is perfection and this has crossed all borders. Your achievement has made its presence felt even in the corporate world and people like me have once again starting believing in India which has been hit by the corrupt policies prevalent everywhere. May god bless you and may this victory be "the first of many"...keep it up boy!!

Sumedha said...

Abhinav, Congratulations! Your achievement is stupendous and your wish for sports in India just what is needed. You have come across as the 'stithpragya' man extolled in the Bhagwat Geeta.

Dear Abhinav, Can you really realize what you have done? I still cant realize it having the past records(??) of India in Olympic. You are one of the real heroes. I admire you! Please keep up the same spirit. We Indians are ready to support you if you can continue participate/achieve like this. We wish you should start a training institute and do the moral/actual coaching which people will definitely appreciate. All the Best for your future endeavors.

With Wishes,

You are a role model for millions now. Heartiest congratulations to you and salute on your great achievement. Your modest amazes me.

However, seems the real challenge for you starts now.

They say that "Apne Parakram se Indra ka sinhasan paana to aasan hain par Indra banane ke baad Mad (ahankaar/ego) bhulana hi kaThin hain".

Hope to see the attitue and patriotism higher than that of Pullela Gopichand in you and may God give you strength that you dont fall in performance and patriotism to the corporate sponsors and media attention like that to almost all our cricketers.

Vande Mataram!

preetikasachar said...

Congrats Abhinav!!!I guess the sheer intensity of the best moments in our lives, leaves us numb with happiness...so yes the feeling will take time to sink in:)Am sure all the youngsters in C'garh wud be thrilled to bits too...:)

Manish said...

Dear Abhinav, First of all Congratulations on your excellent achievement.

And you have iterated that we should be backing all the athletes / sport persons that are participating in the Beijing Olympics irrespective of their winning/ losing games. This is a very good point, which we need to implement in our future.

With Best Wishes

Manish

MirageE said...

Congratz Abhinav...and thanks for making all indians proud. I appreciate your humble and modest nature..Keep it up...

Tejo said...

Abhi...after all this...Indian youth looks as a role model.
Pls emulate some standards so that Indian youth will not be misled.

Also one point, I want to add is when we watch basket ball, volleyball it seems they are all games for tall people.What India can do there when the average height is 5.7".It is not fair on Indian talents and skills.
May be that is the reason we can do good in Shooting, chess etc.

-Tejo from Seattle

Michael said...

First of all many congratulations Abhinav. You achieved something extraordinary and showed to Indians that Olympic Gold is not a fancy item but can be achievable if one has the skills and discipline. I appreciate you for showing all of us how to keep cool and calm after mining the Gold ! Many youths will learn a lesson from you. All the best for your future. Good Luck.

Dear Abhivav,

You have made all of us so very proud! I am sure this great achievement is the result of hours and hours of hard work, tremendous sacrifices and an abiding faith in yourself and of course the constant support, love and affection of your parents, family members, friends and well-wishers, not to forget your coach and mentors.

Whatever you have written after winning the Gold Medal, I could see it on your face yesterday itself. You are the material winners are made of!

You will be glad to know that your domain names are now active :
www.abhinavbindra.co.in
www.abhinavbindra.info
www.abhinavbindra.org

It has been a honour to book the above domains and hosting for you. I am sorry I could not book the dotcom because I was a few seconds late.

Do claim them from me once you get some time, which I am sure will not be easy with various programmes that will be held in your honour back home.

I had never heared indian national anthem in olympics, however you gave me such a wonderful opportunity to hear it.
I consider your achievement above all the achievements in Indian sports history till now.
You are the true son of India. Hats off to you.
This is just The Begining Abhinav.
This achievement should drive all of us to next level.
Whenever I read about you and your achievement, woh kehte hai na..
Bijli poore badan mein daudna... I am experiencing the same.

I wish that you get enough support from every part of the systems so that you get others to the same.
This is the opportunity where you can hit hard and get the sponsers and all media attention.

As a true Indian, I am proud of you!!!!!

Srinivasan said...

Dear Abhinav,

Great Work and I wish our Nation follows your Golden example in every aspect of our development.

Congrats to you for not only the Gold Medal but your balanced personality.May GOD bless You!

Just a thought for you if I may take the liberty,

You have achieved your success inspite of inadequate official support because your magnanimous parents could afford to support you.Please do something to support many Indian talents who may have the talent and potential to do well in sports but can't afford to.That will make you even more proud your Golden achievement!

What A GREAT FEAT!MAY GOD BLESS YOU ABHINAV! You are a Great SON of INDIA!Remember that as the nation sheds tears of Joy and Salutes you!

All the Best!

Seeing the national anthem play on TV after you won the gold was something really really special. Hope your feat spurs the coming generations to go for more gold at the olympics.

remya said...

Hai Abhinav,

All Indians r really proud of you.I really liked your statment that we should support our sports men with or without medal.That's true.

Manish Chhetri said...

HI Abhi,

Hope this spurs Indian sports to even greater heights, but i pray that we all do not forget our roots when we reach them.

The sight of watching the Indian flag being raised bought tears to my eyes. This is one of the proudest moment for every Indian.

Vik said...

I agree with you Abhinav.We've to support the athletes for the efforts they put in for years even if they aren't peaking at the Olympics.I was a trifle disappointed this morning after learning that both Samresh and Rathore didn't fair well in their respective events,followed by the news about the archers ,but then I read your blog post and realized that they'd still need us to support them.Perhaps, your achievement will help us do just that...Believe...and hopefully this will be a great step towards building the Olympics Culture.It's true that corporates will see the potential here ,but yes, we will try and do our part as citizens of this country in creating that Olympics culture.There's absolutely no feeling like excelling at the Olympics and the tearful joy that you gifted to your countrymen actually came as a surprise to many because many would have been shocked at the kind of emotions they experienced yesterday!!!But no ones complaining about the tears and silently even praying for more as those medals from Beijing find our countrymen standing on the podium with their held high to our national anthem. Rock on Bro!! Wish you More Medals!!Not just for your sake, but ours.

jinendra said...

India is changing ! trust me, it is evident when 90% of people writting and wishing you and caring to facilitate Goldindian belong to youth India... I wish we, the newbee, brighten up the olympic by supporting heros like you..

Bravo.. Show has just begun.. May it prolongs brightly...

Diptesh said...

Abhinav, first of all - heartiest congratulations to you. It is a wonderful feeling to be recognised in history as the "first" ! On the other hand, it is indeed sad that this wonderful country cannot produce more sportsperson like you. Never mind the official apathy, sincerely request keep your head on, do not be swayed by the photo ops & sound bites which sundry politicians will vie for. In fact, if you do stay away from them, will respect you more ! You have achieved DESPITE them.

No one can take away your hard work leading to the crowning glory.

Raveendra said...

Thank you.
Really, I have no other words except those.
Well, there's 'congratulations', as well, but I think the overwhelming emotion is more of gratitude, than anything else. So thanks- again and again.
I was at college when my mother SMSed me your result, and as soon as I read it I started screaming and hopping on the spot. Within 5 minutes my entire college knew of what you had achieved.

You've made us so very proud.
Thank you.

Vani said...

Congratulations Abhinav! I hope with your win, corporate houses, and the government realise that talent needs to be nurtured and proper facilities provided! May we get more sports persons like yourself who get the right encouragement not only from their families, but also from the system!

Parag Diwan said...

abhinav,

Heartiest Congratulations!!! .wining a gold indicates that you are no.1 shooter in 10-meter event in the world.
And the whole India is proud of it.

i am sure, when you will come back , there will be huge gesture.

i liked your attitude after the event , you were calm, was happy but not over-reacting with the situation , that shows mental toughness of yours.

I request you behalf of every indian , ( Yes i can make a request to you because you are the ONE who has enough power to change anyone decision by advising authority ) that you make forward step to bring every sport-person of India at the international level.

Basically, our politics is so bad that its hard for common man to reach out there. I have seen , ppls with enough sport talent in India but due to xxx politics they remains at the same position where they came from.

I will not ruin your Happiest moment of your life though, Best luck & am dam sure you will continue the same , again ..again & again.

Abinav, today there is no need to say ' You are Great' or 'Great Job' etc. etc...

If we can do it then we can help other nations and people across the world to dream, feel and do the best -- for a better world. Thanks for showing the Way.. " A Abhinav Path ".
