the end to my Olympics....

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 – 9:20 AM
So it is now over and the time for me to return home has arrived. I know my life is not goign to be even close to the same upon return but it is something i am going to have to embrace and actually enjoy which i am at this moment finding way more daunting than shooting...
The truth is i am scared because it is not somethign i am familiar it but i would like to take this opportunity to thank all my fans and all my well wishers who have rooted for me and all those who have left such kind comments on the blog page as well.
i have finished reading all the comments but i am hoping to catch up once i am home and the media hype dies down.
I also want to wish the other participating the best of luck...although i am not going to be around seeing them at the village i will be definitely rooting for them from back home. I am hoping we cna come back with some more medals because we have all worked so hard and really deserve some more.

Abhinav,
Obviously the public attention will be on you but i think the person like you will remain rooted to the ground.
Moreover you have given each Indian to feel such proud and i do think that this will start a golden era for India to start into Olympics.

We like to see u soon in India

Abhinav,

Your composure at the time of triumph reminds me of my idol Pete Sampras :). Continue to work hard and inspire your colleagues and country...

Your new fan,
Aravind

Giridhar said...

India will embrace you with open arms abhinav !!. You held up it's pride at that much coveted arena.

I'd like to see more posts from you through the coming days.

I'd like to see more such scintillating performances from you in the coming years.

I'd like my Indian flag flutter high up between the clouds.

This is only the beginning.

cheers!!

अमित said...

'The End to my Olympics' We want you to win again in the next edition. So I believe its not end to your Olympics. May be for this edition. Nice to see you updating blog regularly. All the best for future competitions.

Adios!

Harith said...

well done bindra...

thank you..

i dont know much about shooting .

but i know that people like you can win them.

keep it up.

good luck.

Padmini said...

Hi Abhinav!

Congrats and all that... After all the hype has died down, I hope you will get to have a meaningful role in the future Olympics policies of the country and you will make the dream of hosting the 2020 Olympics at India come true! Your voice is going to be heard attentively from now on and you can make a real change to the way sports is run in this country. I hope you will study the ground realities and come up with concrete ideas to promote sports. The Australian model is something you can look at replicating in India. You can start an Olympian sports school with state of the art infrastructure by roping in corporate sponsors and aim for some medals for the 2020 Olympics. Thanks and regards.

Padmini

jina said...

Abhinav,

Joe Cheri Ross said...

Kudos.
You did a great job. Thank you.

For the people of India,
Joe Cheri Ross.

ROHIT said...

mixedblessings89 said...

For whenever you return: welcome back!

You know, it's funny now when I read the reactions of the global media to our reactions to your medal... They don't understand how much it means to this country. An Olympic medal has probably never meant more to so many people at once. Good luck to you, you have made us so proud.

Oh, and I wonder if you noticed, but Google has put your blog up as one of their 'blogs of note', so you'll be getting even more traffic here.

As a blogger, I hope you continue to blog.

Once again, congrats and thanks :)

talkaboutanalog said...

You made India Proud. Congrats on your achievement. Thanks a lot for making india proud.

I really admire you. Your win will be a moral boost to many youngsters across india.

Ananthasubramanian said...

You have been quite an inspirational figure for all Indians. The way you carried yourself after the victory have come as a sweet surprise for all of us.

May be, one day you would break Phelps' record of most number of gold medals in Olympics!!!

Keep it going Abhinav :):):)

BARREL-OBSERVER said...

I just hope that one day, we Indians with One Fifth the population of the world will one fifth of the medals in the Olympics. You have simply done a massive service to Indian Sports. Won't it be nice if someday the world woud refer to us as a nation of shooters, so beware.

Parasu said...

hi Abhinav,

Thanks at last my prayers were answered ( an sure prayers of millions of our fellow country men too ) .. I have been thinking for a while why cant a country with 1 billion population cant have atleast 1 gold medallist in olympics ..... Thanks and now my prayers will be changed and it would read as

How our country is going to get atleast 10 olympic gold medals in year 2020.. and am sure that you will play a huge part in it as well.

According to me, best thing that you can do is to give your video and of course with a message for all our school goin children... as to how to fight and win .. and how we can bring this country a the best in what ever field .. I wish the felicitation for you would take place in JN stadium where atleast 20000 school childrens should be there to see u and hear to your victory speech..

Jai Hind and Keep the country flag flying high...

Hi Abhinav,
Congrats on making all of us so proud of you. Indians all the world over are thrilled by your performance. N the fact that you overcame a back problem to come this far is awesome. I know the media frenzy is hitting you...trust me its gonna get worse as I am also in the media:). One advice: Just take things as it comes and one day at a time. Rest will fall in place.

Abhinav,

First of all I want congratulate you for your historic achievement@ Olympics. You made every Indian proud. Thanks for giving us this moment in our life.

I want to share with you the amagazing moment. I was reading an article about you and other Indian contingent published in India Today...and suddenly i realised that today is the event of 10m air rifle..as our TV wasn't giving telecast of olympic...i thought to check the results on Beijing olympic offical website...when i logged on site...they were giving live scores and that time qualification round was already over and 4 shots of the final round were taken...and u were on second position only 0.9 down to the leader...so pulse inside me started raising...i thought this is our best chance of winning Gold@Beijing...with 5th shot you closed the gap to 0.6...confidence inside me built up...we r geting the gold...with 6th shot you closed the gap to 0.4 and again i felt he is a champion..he ll do it for us...with 7th shot u were on the lead with + 0.2 and i said god its happening...next two shots i felt like is it slipng away...but your last shot of 10.8 and othe fellow got something 9.7...and i screamed with joy
"India gets the Gold..India gets the Gold... Bindra gets the Gold"...it was an amagazing amagazing moment..it was even better than what i felt when India won T20 world cup...immediately i gave this news to my father and other family members..they were also happy...later on entire day we were watching different news channel...all the news about u...Interview of you Father, Mother, Sister and brother in law..it was an amagazing day...and all Indian sports fanatic hope that these kind of days will happen for India often...Thanks a lot Abhinav for giving us an amagazing moment of Proud...

Aryan said...

Abhinav,

I just wanted to wish you the best in your all future endeavours.You have amazing sense of composure,simplicity and truthfulness about the way you carry yourself.I think Abhinav you should write a book about your journey to triumph.We all of us look at you as a source of inspiration not just in sports but in any field where we can make India proud.I also came to know that you are a successful enterpreneur.I am not sure if you read books but I would love to know if you have read and re-read any book which has inspired you.I also feel you must be a student of yoga.Hats of to your parents who have inculcated the culture and teachings which enable you to be grounded.Be this way always.

I am from Mumbai.If you come to Mumbai you have a new friend.

Enjoy each and every moment.I firmly believe your success will act as a spark which will ignite and inspire and encourage many people from various fields not just sports men but in every domain.

Thank you Abhinav.
Ashish

Gurvinder Pal said...

Memorise you, I cherish you soon
As if, the sun surmises and covets for moon

Love loving lovely lives
It is you who make us feel rise

So many passions, so many dreams
Without you, they cannot be seen

You let us take to the skies
You let us show the bright

Though, mist nestles on the way
Have an utter look, we know, you would shed them away

Rather, there be some frightening moment
Better shroud eyes and unfastening in affluent

Moving ahead and crossing sorrow and pain
Unveiling eyes see season of heavenly rain!!!

cheers Abhi...

Perhaps one of the most poignant moments when I watched your victory on TV was when the national anthem was played during the medal ceremony. Ah.. That was the sweetest music I have ever heard in my life. Thank you so much.

Abhinav,

Congratulations! You have made every single Indian proud! Me and my friends felt immense joy when we read about you on the web.

The moment is for you to celebrate and enjoy. The hardwork has paid off. I read Padmini'c omments and I think you are at a position where your voice will be heard.

With great powers come great responisibility - Spidey says...So we all hope you will be able to propose or help in creating some good infrastructure for all future Olympians!

Congratulations once again!

CONGRATS..........
u r the real Indian hero.we all r very grateful to make us feel proud.....

thanks alot......

SANJAY said...

Congratulations Abhinav,
It's an expensive hobby to pursue & hence an expensive sport too. For an ordinary individual to be able to practice that many shots to perfection is not easy.. more so with the likes of Suresh Kalmadi hogging Olympic lights for years & putting up in the best of hotels. These expenses are also met from the same kitty that are supposed to fund the bullets & shooting ranges. Do you know the athletes to officials ratio that have gone to Beijing at the exchequer's expense??? In such a loose & heartless system, only the rich & lucky ones are able to pursue their goal at their own expense coupled with a single minded zeal to beat the system at it's own game. It's only when one wins inspite of a faulty system that someone can proudly announce how it was all achieved... Just like you did. Congratulations Abhinav & your family... you all truly deserve the glory you are basking in & remember.. for every one of you in the family, there will be 200 more longing for some reflected glory... Keep Going.. Abhinav's gun has done the talking & it's enough to silence critics But PLEASE ABHINAV, speak up about the system & the rut on atleast some stage back in India when you go up to receive the stale goodies being dished out by some or other state government or likewise, it would serve them better if they instead spend it on the development of the same or other sports... You don't need that money.. or else take it & open a shooting range for deserving young kids who can't afford it... train them for 2 hours each day & hone your skills further. You can create many more like you. Could'nt congratulate you the day you won the gold since the discussion boards got jammed. Zirakhpur is no longer a bus stop where people hop out to reach Panchkula... it's where you belong!! By the way, I stay near Surajkund close to the Karni Singh shooting ranges near Tuglaqabad in Delhi & have rarely seen people use it to the fullest.
Good Luck..!!

I'm your 47th comment, so I'm not even sure if you'll get this far! I can only imagine how you must feel in this transformation from normal to FAMOUS! Overwhelming, yes. But you deserve every ounce of the attention. Like they've all said, you've lent India new hope. You have the power now to do something even greater than the gold. Now though, is time for celebration :) Have an awesome homecoming!

Aslam said...

Congratulations Abhinav...!!!!

Great going...!! You are really a super star...!! A real inspiration..!! Must have been a very proud moment for you..
It sure was for the billion Indians at home( yet u showed very little emotions on the podium.. cool... :-) )
All the best for your future endeavors..!!

hi abhinav....first of all congrats for your achievement...you have made us proud ...you did something which no indian could do in individual sector of olympic since it started in 1896...you brought us a gold medal..wish you a long and superb career...

Uday Chakwate said...

Abhinav,
I observed many play grounds. No one is using those grounds. Some people are there, but they are playing Only Cricket. One is Batting another is bowling and remaining players are watching.
And if you see Shopping places, College Premises, Theatres, lot of youth are wasting (killing) there time. These Places are always crowded. At least from now, Teanager or youngster will spend their energy in proper and systematic way.

Thanks and Congrats
Uday Chakwate

Abhinav Hearty Congragulation!!!!
It's really a great moment for you and we Indian as you stood on the Podium to recieve the gold medal with the Indian anthem playing at the background. Sure, you will always cherish the moment for the rest of your life.
The one thing I really liked of you, as the newsmakers were flashing and asking interviews was your modesty. I sincerely hope the media hype and the money doesnt divert your attention from the passion for this sport. It would be great if you could make a double century the next time you play in the Olympic.. Till then Best Wishes.

abhinav, you are the true hero for us.you have created such platform that will take indian sport to high level..........chak de india

Viki Xavier. said...

I felt very very proud to hear about your achievement.God bless you abhinav.I always have a guilty feeling that that i have never thought of serious participation in any games in my life.After reading about you i realized the importance of Olympics.I m sure i will encourage the children to play.
You should win Gold medal in next Olympics too.Good wishes.

Welcome son of India

CareerreckoneR said...

Hi Abinav,

Its ispirational to think that the mile stone achieved by you is the part of all INDIANS achievement.

However truly that you have done the hard work and was favoured by all means to win the event, its the pride that INDIA has a GOLD medal in the metal table that is reflected by all the people in India.

Though you may keep the game to you and keep yourself busy even though you stay calm to the ground in the much expected hypes that will be given to you on your return...................pray that you inspire a lot of talents thorugh your winning charm to win medal in the future OLYMPICS not only in shooting but in any of the event they participate.

Surely the lived on continued experience of you could be of a much boost to the many aspirants to really make this achievement.

Think that INIDIA is able to host a future Olympics but it the fear that it should not become a host nation with out a medal in the table.

vandana said...

congrats abhinav .....hats off to u.

toxic said...

hello abhinav ..
congratualtion on this gr88 achievment ...

Karthik said...

Abhinav,
My dream for so many years was to hear INDIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM in the Olympic Games and you have made it happen!!! The first time I saw that on TV.. I started crying!!! This is just a mind blowing and brilliant achievement. You have become a HERO for so many young Indians like me. You have set the benchmark now and I hope we Indians start believeing that its possible to get an Individual Gold Medal in Olympics and its not a dream anymore.
Hats off to you Abhinav. We are all proud of you!!!

Cheers,
Karthik
PS: Your pictures are all over my cube at work!! YOu simply deserve it! :-)

Kannan said...

We are proud of your achievement..like most other blogger i think your voice will have more say than ours in regards to the way the future training and other suggestion about infrastructure should be handled...

Maybe you could be a constuctive critic so that governement hears from real gold medal winner who has the support of billion people....

I still feel your parents support was amazing in our culture..i think next to you they should be part of this honor....i know you have given them all the credit but as a public i bow infront of your parents for their support at an early age....I will be always be your fan....I respect your decision even if you were to quit shooting and not participate in the next olympics...because you have done all the hardwork it is for the future generation to carry on the baton...

Also, if you were to start some sports academy or anything please let us know so that i can donate....have a paypal link or anything so that let us take the initiative...instead of depending on corporate or government we indians as a whole can revolutionise and people like me living in U.s.a can support...also let us not compliant about other why don't we start the initiative...everybody will believe if you start this kind of fund drive and in this age of Internet let us all unite and do our little part....please think about it..we want to support but i can believe in a person of your stature than anybody else....same way no one is going to believe me...respect your decision but anyhow first enjoy your victory and let us worry when you are back to your normal routine...But just want to let you know there are Indians who will support you and other sports person through a channel like you...we want our support to reach the real hardworking sportsperson who is not even participating in Olympics...Always our support is there for all participants...Jai Hind..Thank you for making me and allof su proud to be Indian because of your hardwork.....

Hi Abhinav,
I just wish that these governments and politicians would have given the money and all the accolades before hand, atleast all of you athletes would not have to worry about struggling for equipment or facilities.
Sorry I am being a bit cynical but I feel that only after you got a result that they recognized you and not when you were slogging away for the last four years.

Hope you can be an inspiration to all. Congratulations.

You've done all Indians proud! I can't believe that for the last three decades a country like India never brought home a gold at the Olympics! That makes you all the more special! You truly are a patriot in the real sense of the word!

Many congratulations to you! You made India proud. It really made us emotional when the National Anthem began. You will be the great inspiration to the country

Do you know? Not only Indian are proud of you, but also people in many other countries are, especially in China! Our biggest newspaper, People Daily, pudlished your picture in winning time on its front page! You know, the national leaders are in this place usually. Wow! I think the Olympic spirit is to make more and more people to love sports and make a work for it. So wish you and India a better job again. See you in London!

the best thing I liked in you is you did not show over excitement after the winning moment and in front of medis I salute you for that and also the fact that you made it possible that our national anthem be played there.
Happy Independence day to you in advance.

Vik said...

I share the sentiments of Padmini and Reversedrainbow and at the same time , wouldn't like you to lose your focus and get distracted from your own preparation and training.I have read that Laxmi Mittal was sponsoring you and other Indian sportsmen and women on the fray.I guess even that can be used as a model to fit in or duplicate.Btw,guess you'll be aware that India won the AFC football cup 4-1 beating Tajikistan yesterday.Lastly, as Mixedblessings pointed out that your blog has been selected as a " blog of note" and now that you are getting the attention of people, maybe you can communicate to and through them right here on the direction you think sports {especially for Olympics) should take , even if it's a personal opinion ( obviously because your voice will now be heard, as pointed out by others).You could probably also use your blog as an advertising platform and use the proceeds in sports , although it will hopefully grow with time because I know for sure that like me , others are going to keep coming back to your blog.Wish you great luck for future!!

Hi Abhinav,

Firstly many many congratulations to you and thanks a ton for the medal....

It must be feeling really great to represent our country whose history goes back to centuries and centuries......

"the end to your Olympics" I hope is a start to many many more medals.

And I hope that when my grandchildren will be participating in a quiz....the question will NOT only be

a)who won the first individual gold for India

but also

b)how many olympic gold medals did
Abhinav Bindra win


Thanks a lot once again ......

Cheers!!!!

priyanka said...

abhinav,
many congratulations to u!! its definitely a great feat..i hope now the country will look beyond cricket. i have followed your sporting career oft and on..(must say was a lil disappointed after athens). your recent victory does remind one to not lose faith in our sportsmen..as spectators we cant even imagine the kind of pressure and discipline sportsmen have to face. i wldnt say u were the underdog, but yeah i think ppl were more interested in Mr.Rathore...hence the surprise factor was immense to say the least.
great feat champ! really hope u repeat this, not for the nation, but for urself, to do justice to the potential u have in u.
cheers!

Hello
First of all CONGRATULATIONS
Well you have made Indians all around the world so proud.We all know winning a Medal is not easy,and you really worked hard to achieve it,all your hard work,sweat and all the hours you put in practice- everything has paid off really well.You also defeated your back injury to compete in Beijing
This medal is a result of your Dedication,Devotion & Discipline(the 3-Ds).
We salute you. You started shooting at such a young age and you have won many medals but this Olympic Gold is for sure your best.Olympic Games have their own charm,they measure a nation's sporting- capability and depth.
I really hope India wins many more medals in future Olympic games and I really hope India hosts Olympic games in future.
I think our nation has a lot of Talent,its just that the Talent needs to be guided in the proper direction with proper facilities.If proper training and facilities are made available to all Indian players then India can win a lot of medals.
You are so calm and composed,I think this a very important quality for sportsmen; and I think this quality will take you to new heights in your career
Well thanks a lot for this Blog,this blog was a great chance for your fans to interact with you.Obviously you will be surrounded with media as soon as you land in India,don't worry just take it as it comes.
Good luck for your future
Thank you

empoweringall said...

hi abhinav, bharath maatha is proud of this son! its going to be some celeberation this 61st Independence day and the tricolour is going to flutter with high excitement and fly higher this year! what a moment of glory it was to see the tricolour going up up and up and jana gana mana playing in the background and a cool abhinav with a composed smile standing on the highest podium! that surely is a moment all of us indians are going to cherish for a very long time.

one gold and how all the state governments started declaring their prize money to abhinav! if only a hundredth of that money and enthu is spent on encouraging the budding talents, we will very soon have more abhinavs to cheer to!

jai bharath maata! jai abhinav bindra! happy independence day to all of us tomorrow!

The hits on your blogs have increased substantially and this can give you an idea that India is always looking for "HERO". I am proud that its you, somebody of my age who has done what I wanted to do. I can't see myself in you (Other than spects nothing is common:-)) but at least I can draw that proud feeling out of your great work. Abhi, you are a new hero for India and its your responsibility to get India out of shackles of CRICKET MANIA. You can do it because you have attention, media visibility, money and people like me too :-). Life is a big stage and you have just made it bigger. Have a great time ahead.

Deepz said...

Congrats Abhinav,

You have done it….Thank you so much for the smile you gave us…

bigk said...

hi welcome with gold in india. Plz don't think your work is over with gold. Plz keep influence govt to do someting for sports. we don't have hope on govt but we believe on u and expect that we will get atlest 10-20 gold in next olymoics. plz influence media also to do someting. we hear all other sports only on olympics. nobody from media specially television knows that who is capable and who is not. They don't know strength and weakness of other sports than cricket. I expect much from u bindra plz don't forget sports when you were in business. i want to use your blogs to thanks l m mittal also. we were not aware that he is doing so much(more than govt) for indian sports i hope other major groups will do same in future.

Thanks for gold
We are so haapy that we can't say in words

akh koshur said...

Karan said...

hi Goldenboy,

A proud son of INDIA.

its a wonderful feeling which cant be expressed in mere words.

Each indian around the world are proud of you.

You are the light in a dark tunnel.you shown the path and courage to the entire nation.Hope all the hard work sportsmen will take you as a role model and rock in the following sports events.

you admired everyone not only with a Gold medal but with your calmness and composure.

Keep working hard..since you have MILES TO GO....

mister mateo said...

Bindrameister,

As a lifelong Olympics fanatic, it has been an absolute thrill being here in India to see the jubilation in which your countrymen have embraced you. All my friends and family back in the US have been emailing me to see if people here really are as excited as what's being reported on TV, and I have to tell them that those reports don't even come close to reflecting the joy that people here show when talking about you.

I've even developed a bit of Bindra-mania myself, and am glad to see that India's first individual gold medal has been earned by such a deserving athlete such as yourself.

I have also been equally impressed with your incredibly loving and proud parents. Your mother reminds me of my own - she wants nothing more than to see her son get married and feed him. And your father is the very definition of the word "pride."

I hope that you're able to return to Beijing in time to carry India's flag at the Closing Ceremonies, because I'd really like to be here in India to see that.

If your competitions ever take you to California then please drop me a line so that we can go out and grab a drink...and of course some tandoori.

You are, have always been, and will always be THE MAN.

Peace out homey,
Mateo

Dear Abhinav,

Many many congratulations,We really cnt thank you enough for what you have done for yourself and for all INDIAN'S...A Gold medal was a long due...sometimes intentionally or unintentionally you do things which makes you feel proud but in your case You have made a Country proud of you..Im sure we all fall short of words when we are writing this but its so overwhelming that i cnt explain.An event where we hear only about china ,USA...You came as a good change.

I wish one day I could also make my parents proud of me....like you did.

Thanks Again.

Mina Jade said...

Congratulations on your hard work and all your achievement, you have every right to feel proud, and your compatriots, too.

You did your work well and this is the most important, we all respect you much for it.

Our Fitness World Champion Béres Alexandra said not the Cup itself is the most important - to be given the Cup takes only a few moments. The journey which takes you there, your hard work, is much more important.

You did your best and you gave everything you could. Be proud of yourself, keep your head up!

Congrats one more time and best wishes for your future plans,

Mina Jade from Hungary

Ashrafi said...

Congratulations Abhinav,
As a fellow Indian I felt so happy and proud of your achievement that I wrote this Poem:

Shooting Star

Abhinav Bindra, a young shooting spark
At the 2008 Olympics hit the bullseye mark.
Down the line, the story will be told
How in 10M Air Rifle he won the Gold.

Overcoming injury,
Undergoing surgery,
With grit and determination
He won Gold for his Nation.

Practising countless hours
Shooting for the stars
As part of India’s Olympic team
He achieved his life long dream.

Nerves of steel stood him in good stead
As slowly and steadily he inched ahead
With a final 10.8 score
The first place he did secure.

He was the hero of the day
Proving hard work does pay
A place in History he shall hold
For getting India’s first individual Gold.

We as a Nation, proclaim out loud
Abhinav Bindra has made us proud!

Well said Abhinav!!! Private & Corporate support must be initiated apart from the government backing.

India do ve realy world class talents which we are not able to nurture good enough.

I hope you are a BIG start to the greatest achievments.

Thank You Abhinav for being a GREAT inspiration for the upcoming talents and hopefully for people and government to realise they need to support and nurture the young talents.

inertia said...

We watched our national anthem being played as you got your medal and it brought tears in our eyes. What an inspiring and poignant moment that was! More so because of your composure, maturity and down-to-earth attitude. Sports persons like you, Rahul Dravid and Rathore are one in a million. True role models for generations to come.

Najeeba said...

Hi Abhinav,
First of all, thank you for your blog... I wondered how you felt when you received the gold medal, because when I saw you in TV, you seemed like a silent person. Thank you for sharing it. And, congrats for the gold - the dream of 100+ crores of us, Indians.
And yes, I would like to suggest your composure to all the winners of anything.
Congrats once again!

anu said...

Hi Abhinav,
This is Anupreet from Australia. I just wanted to say CONGRATZ. You have made Indians, from all corners of the world, proud. Here in Aust. when talking about Indian sports it was always about cricket but in reference to the Olympics the main comments were that "India suck". Now we can hold our heads a little higher in front of our peers, especially because your achievement will help maintain the Olympic Spirit in India, so thank you. Singh is King!!
Cheers from Down Under

Hello,
i don't know whether i like u or not.ur composure...that uneasy calmness...its strange to be frank.
but one thing is for sure ur a true winner the way u stood on th podium without any sign of emotion.
ur attitude the way ur handling the media n the sudden publicity..
somehow its like u knew it all the way that the medal is coming.
dnt know whether u care to read it or not.
many cangratulations!!

Jerome Rajan said...

Abhinav....First of all, my hearty congratulations to you.
When the news of India's Gold reached my ears, I was in my classroom listening to a boring lecture.
The moment the news reached me, I and my friends jumped with elation and joy disregarding even the presence of a teacher. It was possibly one of those moments when I really felt proud to be an Indian. I always am but that moment was extra special. Specially, when you were on that podium and the whole world stood looking up to the Indian flag being raised above the rest and with the National Anthem in the Background, tears rolled down as the ignominy of a 108 years ended and the dream of a billion indians was realised. 3 cheers to you...!!!
Jai Hind!!!
