expressing my gratitude to all

Saturday, September 20, 2008 – 9:18 AM
Over the last couple of days I have been saddenned reading and hearing things about me.  I am not the type of person who likes controversy and being ungrateful to anyone or getting success & fame into my head is the last thing on my mind.  Setting the record straight I am grateful to every organisation /association who supported me.  I know there were plenty of people in the system who believed in me - i am really thankful to them, also there were plenty of people in the system who never believed in my abililties- A bigger thank you to them - cos its they who gave me a lot of motivation to show what i was capable of.  So i hope with this i have covered every possible person  to thank and i hope we can put an end to the controversy and focus on far more subjects in hand and that is the development of indian olympic sport.

I strongly stand by what i have said all along & that is that our athletes deserve the best possible support for preparation.  the support must be provided on time.  I have absolutely nothing against any person or any person heading any federation. My belief is that every federation must be run professionally and effeciently so that the athlete can focus on what he or she is supposed to do and that is to train and compete with a free mind and not worrying about where the next bullet is going to come from. It is the job of the federation to facilitate this process for the athlete, cos its because of the athletes that a federation exists.   When this starts to happen i can assure you that performance will improve a lot , and it would give a feeling that there is someone for you.

On a much more exciting front, i have just started to help with suggestions  to formulate a programme for some junior shooters.  This is really exciting and i am very hopeful there will be some much needed support forthcoming for our future stars.

abhinav
your being modest about everything being said and heard about you . hey but that's bad news for the media ....... they must be waiting for you to pouce on the officials so that they get more stories .... it feels really great when you say that you wish to focus on more important things like indian sports . hoping that our sportsmen will soon get their due through regular efforts . great to see that your avoiding controversies ... the champion that you are . carry on the good work ......

Don't worry now that you have clearly thanked everyone once again,the controversy will die off. Its true that controversies do hurt a lot of times.
Anyways as you said now we should be more focussed on supporting the athletes and training them for the future.
Please keep blogging,this is the best way to know your thoughts and views. Your plan for junior shooters sounds good and good luck with that!
Waiting for your next post!!

Good luck

hi, Abhi
u r an introvert and peaceful person.donot take all these bad comments to your heart.just be chill and be cheerful.just concentrate your mind towards new plans and move forwardto achieve anew success.i have heard that u rdoing something for junior shooters.i m also a shooter and did shooting for 2 yrs but now i m not getting any opportunity for it.plz help me and help other people like me to show their hidden talents.

Nikunj Malik said...

hmmmm...like they say...when an elephant crosses the path, dogs bark. but that doesnt dent the attitude of the elephant. so u c.... we are a BIG nation with uncountable people and every one with a defferent thought process. so whoever is out criticising you, well...lets just say thats just the extent to which they can think.... why bother for people who have nothing meaningful to take care of. when people cant stick to their business, they go out n critise others who have done something worthwhile in life.... tats like a bitter reality....

but whenever anything like that starts to upset u, just think that people who really admire u, arent even bothered of wat those crapheads say.... they just love u... like millions of ur fans n supporters.....

and more than loving u, we are grateful to u.... u have brought home something which was a dream of every patriot indian since like forever nw.....

anyways...we hope u r taking good rest n unwinding....

Nikunj Malik said...

bye the way...as an after thought...
people revert back scornfully when they see their weak points sneaking out...being exposed is a biiiig terror in itself... and the best way to defy one self is to start critising the good guy so that the attention goes off from the bad guys.... yeyi yeyi... thats the strategy decoded !!!!

Nikunj Malik said...

oh and.... the nice weather continues to be... so did u yet check out the very recomended street food and indian beauty ??!!

if u haven't.... U MUST !!

Ritika said...

Hi Abhinav,
plz dont take these controversies on ur head.
U r a fame guy now and every thing comes with a cause so be cool about it.

kritika182008 said...

Hi AB, well would just say that simply ignore the negative criticism and dont be disheartened. keep up your good and hard work..all the best!

Pan said...

With good there always comes the bad.So don't take any note of the false criticisms.Whatsoever,there will always be good support to counteract the other.

rohit said...

thanx abhinav
u r great man

lil mermaid said...

hi
i know it is alwayz so exciting when you initiate something gud....you feel so gud inside...

n don wory about the criticism cause it wil alwayz b there..you just cant help it..just think of the millions who admire you...and do not deter because you will definately face hurdles in implementing your plans n there wil b more criticism.....

just do what your heart says is right....

shahid said...

Don't be perturbed Abhi...

i, we n the whole country in behind u brother... just speak ur heart out...
they r losers who r speaking sh*t about u...
leave them on their own mercy... cos u r in a position to raise ur voice... very rarely some1 does this...
won't compare u with any other sports person but will say that evry1 speaks about the mismanagement in indian sports authorities only when they loose, thrown out of the team or are drawn into some controversy... but no1 takes such a brave step when one has won.

kudos to u for ur achievement..

n hats off for speaking about the reality in the system...

Smruti said...

hi
abhinav

Controversies are bound to happen....
but the most imp thing is how u can overcome them....
which u did in a very safe way....
Those how created these controversies were thinking that u would react louder but u camly handled it.
even i hope this will put an end to the controversy..
don't get saddenned by reading n hearing controversial things about u....
like a coin has two faces..
same a winner has two faces...
success is one
n controversy is the other side of
coin...
so i m not saying that it will happen always...
but 5 fingers are not always same....
so cheer up n yes u r doing a great job...
I request my dear junior shooters...please come forward...this golden chance can't be missed by u all...

bye take care n yes....
i think i m the only one to remind u about... this sunday's party...

Anurag Srivastava said...

Dear Abhinav,
First of all i don think that you owe an explanation to anyone.This also enlightens the basic problem of our system...who said what should not matter at all...i believe that if you wanna do big then you should think even bigger.Our thinking should always be practical & result oriented.These face saving tactics are pretty immature & don indicate a positive outlook.

I only hope that you carry the same determination & motivation for your academy as well..for i know that it is a much much bigger challenge.

Going against the tide is tough & maintaining balance shall be tougher.

Warm Regards,
Anurag Srivastava

Sherel said...

hey Hi Abhinav...

it is better and good that you dnt pay attention to such comments...
well if you have read my blog i have written why do people speak wrong about you n all...
you needn't worry about such silly things re...its all a part and parcel of life..
and you know what where there is good there has to be evil...so chill...just concentrate on what ever you do...
I am always there with you...

and a few days back i read a thought on a flex and i really liked it...it said
"PEOPLE MAY NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU SAY BUT THEY WILL BELIEVE WHAT YOU DO"...
so
All The Best for what ever you do

Thanks a lot

Sherel said...

hey and yes

Yapieeee Burthdey To you in advance...

libra haan....balanced...

Karthik B.S. said...

from the very way you said "forget me, lets work for others", we know you are selfless and not one who wants to grabs attention.

And glad that you want to start a programme for junior shooters.

Parv Kaushik said...

"there were plenty of people in the system who never believed in my abililties- A bigger thank you to them - cos its they who gave me a lot of motivation to show what i was capable of."

words to be framed and to be kept in the room...

Deepika said...

Hey Abhinav! I know you're a very nice person and you don't have justify it. People who think that success has gone into your head, they are just plain jealous of you. Because in today's time no one is ready to see someone enjoying the fruit of success. I did not expect Mr Singh and Mr Kalamadi to make such gross statements against you. And do not let yourself get bothered by this. You're a very humble gentleman. These people are just trying to divert your attention as you're pretty determined and focused regarding your goal. A person who wins gold medal for the country is called ungrateful. OH WOW! Our politicians will never talk sense.

And I am sooooo glad to hear that you're gonna do something for the junior shooters.

Lots of love and luck
Deepika

and Parv, I sooo agree to whatever you said! (y) (:

sandeep said...

Hi abhinavji,
I'm Sandeep from Hyderarbad.First of all I'd like to congaragulate you for winning the first ever individal gold for our country and making us proud.I've read all your interviews in newspapers and came to know that you mostly like to be calm and also that you talk freely to those who are close to you.I confess that I'm just like you except that I,m not an athlete.I'm going to join engineering in a few days.I'd like to be your friend.If you accept my proposal please send me your e-mail address to sandeepmed@yahoo.co.in.I've never asked anyone like this but i'm much impressed of you and want to be your friend.It's even the first time i'm posting a comment on someone's blog.If i'd asked or said something wrong,please forgive me.Waiting for your reply,hoping you accept my offer...

Nikita said...

Controversies are a part of the entire baggage that comes with success. Your statements are bound to get twisted to create controversies. It's good that you have a blog where you can interact with your fans directly. Moreover, anybody who has seen your interviews would know that a steady head rests on your shoulders. It would be difficult to believe ever that success has gone to your head.
Keep doing what you are good at and such controversies would come and go. Your fans love the calm attitude of Abhinav Bindra, let it always be that way.
All the Best

vanshika said...

It is indeed very frustrating when you are pulled into controverseries for no fault of yours, but I guess, once into the limelight, you automatically become an open target for just about anybody. Don't let anybody or anything affect you. I don't think you even owe anybody any explanation against all those baseless allegations. Really proud there is somebody like you who is above selfish gains and thinks about Indian sports first. Wish there were more like you, Abhi... Hope the new program takes off smoothly and we have a hoard of future Abhis who will do India proud...

ANKITA GUPTA said...

Hi Dr.Bindra
How r u ? Well i just want to tell u that believe in urself bcos media makes hype of everything , u knw that. So we knw tht u and ur family thanks to everybody. If they dnt knw it u just tld them just see the interviews of urs and ur father. i remember the day when u met president media asked the question and ur father thank to everybody.But u dnt worry and one thing more now ur this gratitude blog will be going to see in news very soon. I m just smiling by writing this bcos nw media gt some gud material again of urs. U r helping to the budding shooters thts great man.
ALL THE BEST!
BYE
TAKE CARE
:)

Stuti said...

A brilliant diplomatic answer to shut the mouths of all those surrounding you with controversies. And the thing to be observed is that you have actually taken them sportingly enough to proceed on all your further strategies towards strengthening our athletes. Good to know you are not taken aback by the "bad" and the "embarassment" around you. May all our athletes out there actually put to use this strong feeling of enthusiasm and bring up the spirit of determination and devotion to their sports!!!

karuru said...

dear abhinav

"only those who are inspired can inspire others".
we would be happy if you could write a message in our school magazine for our students.couldn't get your residential address/mail id....wondered if it is possible for u to mail it to us at rupalisachdev@gmail.com

with warm regards

purva said...

hi ABHINAV,

congrtulatoins for not getting into controversies. you are such a nice and gental human being.

just don't take these things to your heart because whatever you said or did is very true and really good for society. i am from pune and in today's newspaper i read news about commonwealth youth games prepations. the shooting range made for CYG is very good and its been made with maximum possible efforts and reason for taking so much pain is just because of YOU and your gold medal which gave a ray of hope for other shooters and also to arrangers that if they put efforts in arrangments we can have great shooters.

so i think whatever you want to do for Indian sports is started.
congratulations.

bye
purva

DIVYA said...

Mr Bindra.
Honestly, I was shocked to hear your remarks about how govt is not providing enough support to the sports men. About the same time as you were lamenting about 'lack of support' (after central govt and several state govts announced crores of rupees as token of appreciation) there was another shooter, whose aim was perfect too, who was battling with his life in the hospital. He died fighting terrorists.
Yes I'm talking about Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma. He lost his life leaving behind a wife and two young kids so that me and you can sleep peacefully.
Ofcourse the shooting star did not think it was necessary to even say a word.
Listen Mr Bindra, your gold medal makes no difference to us. Come to think of it, even your existence makes no difference one way or the other. Stop deluding yourself into thinking that because you got some lousy medal, you are some kind of hero. You won a gold medal in Olympics. We are proud. Leave it at that.
Atleast come forward and submit your salute to the martyr and prove that you are a responsible citizen. He gave up his life for the country.

shraboni said...

conrats abi, you are celebrity now( with big c) and celebrity without controversy is like bipasa basu without make up. you cannot run away from it. take it in your stride as you accept your failure. it is just an passing phase. REMEMBER UNJUST CRITISISM IS AN DISGUSTED COMPLIMENT.....lastly egarly waiting for your next post.........

jaspriya said...

the wildest thing people can do today is to compare abhinav bindra with late mr. mohan sharma...where is the comparison anywhere???abhinav did hid job nd he did his own..abhinav got the country something we had been starving for since years..there r hundreds of army men nd polic men sacrificing their lives for the country,for us..we all hav due respect for those great souls but why abhinav is being targetted for that??? we all feel sorry nd at the same time very proud of Mr. Sharma but at the same time we hav the same pride for abhinav..why do we hav to target a single person??? what must he be going thru rite now..he has been a normal man..it was us nd the media who declared him a hero or a celebrity...nd why abhinav??who elese came to salute the great man???
come on ppl grow up....this is just being over hyped..why r we forcing abhinav to leave his patriotism,his enthusiasim for the sport....why do we want him to hide somewhere away from the public eye....blame him for something that he did not fulfill after promising...he is a sportsperson nd let him be one.....

Pan said...

Wish you A VERY HAPPY B'DAY in advance :-)

priyanka said...

Hi abhinav,

this is a part and parcel of the package. did u expect that u'll have a controversy free life after ur achievments :). if likes of gandhi and kennedy couldn't avoid it, how could you? As one of my ex-boss will put it, just stay put and focus only on ur work. everything else will automatically fall into place, sooner or later.

waiting to hear some of the big plans. good luck.

-priyanka

Vik said...

Hi Abhinav,

Just read about your 500 public schools project for sports.Wanted to wish u the very best of luck for your endeavor.I am sure everyone involved will do their best to make it a success and the country will benefit immensely.Thanks buddy.All the best!

sen said...

hi abhinav,
When i was watching olympic sports like rowing. i was wondering, whether there are any school/college in india which are big enough to have facilities for sports like rowing etc?.In most of the hollywood movies with a college background, you can always see the movie starting with students practicing rowing inside the campus.I wonder when indian college and universities will have that kind of facilities.

I was delighted to learn that you are trying to start 500 schools to promote sports in india.That's great.I don't know the idea behind this grand scheme, but if i may suggest, i would say that it is better to concentrate on quality instead of quantity.500 is a big number and iam afraid it would be hard to bring excellence among students if you have to concentrate on so many schools.A fewer number of schools with specif goals and specialization would be far easier and more effective to implement.

Also, now that so many people are listening to you.It would be great, if you could appeal to the bloggers who visit your page to follow one indian sport(other than cricket) closely and spread the news about its upcoming stars and events.

Anamni said...

i thnk there's no need 2 prove nething 2 ne1... especially to ppl... hu instead of appreciating ur success, and last but not the least ur effort to promote the olympic sport, just tagging u ungrateful...Ppl nationwide dont beliv in those ppl, but in ur capability and ur humbleness,... and that's wat i too like bst in you. hoping to here from u soon...

shraboni said...

starting 500 new school of international standerd!!! sounds quite intresting. but dont you believe in tapping talent in and from grassroot level(at least in case of grooming budding sportmen). but i dont find any hope for those talented but economically weak children will ever get chance in your school; only creamy layer can afford to study in your school...... but anyway somebody has to start. ALL THE VERY BEST.

dfg said...

Hi, Abbhinav,
I read your news, but do not panic our country with you and always. Our leader not interested to rise much gold medal. They interest only you won the gold and give them so they can convert them into vote. Do not see any comments, our country young person with you.
Please you make a fund for help the player those will play for next Olympic and we will contribute that fund. Thanks lot
It is not possible to express in word that you have done in china, go continue.

Divija said...

hi.what abhinav did was right &he didn't comment or say anything abt them.i appreciate abhinav for starting up 500 sport schools in different parts of our country but i'm not sure if it is shooting schools or sports schools.whatever it might be we all are happy about this and are encouraging him in all aspects.

Hi Abhi...
Advance Birthday wishes...

Maneet said...

Abhinav,

Congratulations to you ! you've made a billion+ people proud.
Im about to talk about a topic which might be very personal to you.
Im an NRI Sikh and wanted a clarification on your end.
Your dad proclaimed that you are a sikh. Can you confirm that you are a sikh ?
From what I know about Sikhism, the Rehat Maryada (if you dont know what that means, its the sikh code of conduct) says that -
Any human being who faithfully believes in: (i) One Immortal Being, (ii) Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Dev to Guru Gobind Singh, (iii) The Guru Granth Sahib, (iv) The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus and, (v) the baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru, and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion is a Sikh.

Pardon me for being totally upfront about this, but think about the upcoming Sikh generation. IF you are a sikh role model, this means to say sikhs will have no discernible identity - im sure my religion will fail to exist in another few decades. Im not slamming you, im proud of you and proud to be an Indian. Im not being a fundamentalist here, but associating your name with Sikhism is a disgrace, you are free to choose your religion but please dont call yourself a sikh - please dont denigrate an existing religion, its principles and values.
Looking forward to a clarification from your end.

Thanks,
A concerned Sikh.

the said...

Birthday wishes in advance ! Hey,
We are a bloody overpopulated country. From pathetic roads to inferior quality of products manufactured, as a team we Indians have done nothing to enhance our standards.

Your work is outstanding and deserves to be cherished.

We appreciate your first step to motivate people from being ordinary to extraordinary.

Talent needs to be cultured and promoted. It needs like minded people to resonate it in others hearts. Take the next step and the world will unfurl. However, be wary because politcising an issue is also our mentality!

Vik said...

Lftc,Thanks for the reminder!

Hey Abhinav,wish u an advance auspicious 26th B'day.Hope u have a blast.

swati said...

Dear Abhinav,
Greetings to the hero of 100crore population of the country.
Today is a memorable b’day and on this occasion I wish you from the bottom of my heart good health, happiness and I wish all your dreams come true.
Celebrate yourself on this great day to the fullest.

prashansa said...

Hi,
even i read the the controversies. it was kinda wrong becos a person like you should never be dragged into controversies.
We would like to know more about your shooting program. sounds interesting...
kudos

Neha said...

Sir...first of all congratulations for ur feat,which not only has u or ur family only...but the whole nation in centre!!
This might be the wrong place to put the point for which i have come here..but there is nothing wrong in it because it is directed to the correct person, Mr. Abhinav Bindra.I am talking about the dream U shared with the nation just few days back of having schools for those students who are born with some xtraordinary talent but get it submerged smwhere in them beacause they do not know which road to follow!!
You might have put forth this project now but it would be heartening for U to know that this came to the eyes of someone else some years back, and i just did't dream of it but i backed it with some reality too!
I have in my hand (and mind too), right now, some ideas which are too close to Yours.
Hope I could be of some help in making YOUR DREAM a REALITY!!
One more thing, schools are not new to me...I have spent my last 25 years in giving guidance to people to establish schools- from A to Z.But for this IDEA my heart beats!!
If possible,a meeting with You could make myself more clear and also bring me closer to YOUR thought-process.

Waiting for Your step now...

This might be the wrong place to put the point for which i have come here..but there is nothing wrong in it because it is directed to the correct person, Mr. Abhinav Bindra.I am talking about the dream U shared with the nation just few days back of having schools for those students who are born with some xtraordinary talent but get it submerged smwhere in them beacause they do not know which road to follow!!
You might have put forth this project now but it would be heartening for U to know that this came to the eyes of someone else some years back, and i just did't dream of it but i backed it with some reality too!
I have in my hand (and mind too), right now, some ideas which are too close to Yours.
Hope I could be of some help in making YOUR DREAM a REALITY!!
One more thing, schools are not new to me...I have spent my last 25 years in giving guidance to people to establish schools- from A to Z.But for this IDEA my heart beats!!
If possible,a meeting with You could make myself more clear and also bring me closer to YOUR thought-process.

Waiting for Your step now...

Wishing you the HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY EVER, Abhi.

2008 is one damn special year for you and you really deserve all our wishes. Just imagine, last birthday none of us knew you and here we are this year remembering your big day and wanting to wish you. Most of us have never met you and probably never will, but the truth is that you have become so much a part of our life that wanting to wish you is like wanting to wish somebody in the family. We all want you to feel special because you hold a special place in all our hearts(and it is not just because of the gold, it is because we all like you for what you are).

Have a great time. Enjoy your day. Will wait for your post to know how you spent the day.

P.S.: Wanted to wait till 12 to wish you....anyway, Happy Birthday once again.

Nikunj Malik said...

well.....have heard enuff about people wanting to do something for sports movies politics...blah blah....

people who do make an impact on the society, should first of all take initiatives for CRUELTY AGAINST ANIMALS

i just dont understand how come no one is talking about it n trying to do anything here

i cant c an animal suffering watsoever...have no fuckin clue how anyone can just unsee the obvious right in front of their eyes....

every street has like ten animals who are suffering...and then there are bloody humans torturing them even more....

if this is what being human is... shame on us....

its time for some reality check

take a look at this

just to have an idea of how evil human could be...check the links below...and if u do, please join in the protest by forwarding it to as many people (who are human) and raise an awareness.

its time we do something for animals...wats their mistake if they are born beautiful and speechless....

http://www.peta.org/feat/chineseFurFarms/index.asp

http://www.all-creatures.org/anex/raccdog.html

please please please... plead against it on-

http://www.furisdead.com/pledge-furfree.asp?c=chfrplg

http://www.furisdead.com/pledge-furfree.asp

please protest atleast once for the sake of these beautiful innocent adorable animals....and the human in u.....

Nikunj Malik said...

AND THIS PARTICULAR POST IS FOR ALL U BLOGGERS UP HERE IN THIS THREAD...IF U READ IT BY ANY CHANCE...

CELEBRITIES ARE NOT THE END OF THE WORLD....

IF U CAN TAKE HALF AN OUT TO COMMENT ON THEIR BLOGS, PLEASE DO TRY TO THKE ATLEAST 15 MINS FOR THE ANIMALS WHO CANT EVEN SPEAK AND EXPRESS AND YET HUMANS TORTURE THEM ENDLESSLY.....

BEING COMPASSIONATE IS BEING HUMAN.... NOTHING ELSE IS MRE IMPORTANT THAN THAT !

hi
nd the history is made finally nd you know the best part i cut out the samsung profile f urs, saying next is what,next is abhinav and put it in n my workstation in icici bank, just to make me rem that yup we have done it and made it go deep inside me
i am abhinav and have been exposed to the sport for say approx 10 yrs now in air pistol and in tughlakabad when there was practise session i had met you so abhinav meets abhinav neways coming to the 10.9, you have done it and we all atleast in the circuit know what kindda nerves it requires i guess almost a half life, i could not congratulate u personally but yup i was in touch f gagan and what he did is wonderful just happens i hope u could motivate him more thoug he himself is pretty balanced, but personally speaking i recieved lot many calls frm my ppl as if i had won a medal and i partly share the success at a micro level and i personlly was wating for air rifle results and called up shimon to confirm the same, and as u say the game is it self a meditation, i fire air pistol lp10 and i am an left hander, got couple f invi frm europen open champinships but no funds currently and i am wrking nd it makes it all the more tough, i hope some day we have a similar breakthrough in air pistol and sm of our deserving indian pistol shooters shine out,
be in touch do write bak,

cheers
abhinav

Akanksha said...

HI ABHINAV,
Belated happy birthday. I have heard about ur project of opening 500 schools across the country.I really apppreciate that.I think it would be much better if underprivileged as well as children from rural areas can also afford ur schools and can be benifited from them.By doing that at least u can make lives of them who really need our help.This is just my opinion,of course u know better than me what u r doing. If I m expecting much from u then I m sorry becoz it is not my right to do that.On ur birthday I wish that may god always show u the right path and give u enough courage n motivation to follow that path..........

Ananya said...

Dear Abhinav sir,
M studying in 9th grade and shooting n swimming r my passions. I joined NCC to get some guidence in shooting but then, my mom asked me to leave NCC training n shooting coz my studies used to suffer. My mom was District topper of University so , she wanted me carry over her reputation.
But sir I wanted to know that wen r u finalizing a shooting range for juniors so, that I can also participate coz I know I can do it.

Stuti said...

I express my gratitude and hearty appreciation hereby for you takin' a step closer to the progress of quality education and the new phase of sports people need to look at. Keep it up!!

tsarina said...

Hi
I've been following your blog since a long time (after u won the gold medal,to be more precise & honest :-) ) & though I sincerely admire & respect ur achievement & ur attitude towards it as a whole I haven't been more than a passive reader,never finding anything compelling enough to comment upon.Even though it's great that u've won "INDIA'S FIRST INDIVIDUAL GOLD MEDAL" I wasn't really happy with the kind of hysterical celebrations that ensued ,more out of embarrasment at the lack of it.But as they say 'better late than never'.
Anyway the reason that really forced me to comment on ur blog are reports that u danced on 'bachna ae haseeno'(of all things!!!!) at ur b'day(happy belated b'day).EEiueee plz. let that be a media concoction for better masala news!!! I am amused by continuous goading at the 'marriage'issue.For GOd's sake u're just 26 .Though,to be honest I took a lot of saddistic pleasure on seeing even guys & not just girls being pestered for marriage .

All the best for your new projects that you’re working with. I’m sure your dreams will come true. And don’t worry about the results, they’ll surely be your way.

Love & Regards

Hi ! Abhinav
I am an army officer with over 24 yrs of service,been a sportsman throughout, played Basketball till Army Championship level.Was also involved in traing the Rowers of army who brought laurels during asian games.
So, I am aware,how controversies happen at drop of a hat,let it not bug you.....You have proved loud and clear..that you are Hero among all the heroes of our nation. Keep it up !! D'ont let the fizz die in you..... you have a long way to go.

I read somewhere,that you intend to establish schools, I think nothing could more noble than to create facilities for our younger generation... it would be really very inspiring, when an Olympic Gold medalist himself leads them.
My sincere wishes for your future endeavours, may God be with you!

jite negs said...

abhinav first of all heartly congratulations on winning gold for india sorry it took me a long time in actually finding your blog been a great fan of urs from sydney olympics knew u had it in you to achieve this i really your blog actually & would like to come wid few suggestion abhinav i liked your gesture about changing the scenario about indian sports. the main reason for this is lack of professionalism due to no fedration talking interest in taking his sports to next level u need the right people to market the sports u people who actually run the front stage show dont have enough right people back stage m sorry if i m hurting anyone with this comment but this is the truth people like u, rajyavardhan singh, anjali bhagwat & many more have shown that there is no lack of talent but just the lack of sponsorers & audience which can then change the scenario for that there should be two goals 1st a short one where a right backstage team is to be put to run a perfect front stage show & second where money has to be put at a right place in forms of investment which can help in achieving many future stars. many more things can be actually done which could bring money to shooting fedration cause it has been indias oldest sports right from the maharajas days. i guess i have written this very long but now its your time. u can actually now can make many things happen if u want. all the best & it really feels nice that the future of shooting federation is going on in the right hands with u people giving results

fuhrersays said...

GUYS .. this is not Abhinav Bindra for god sake :) .. look at his blogger profile .. he has started this blog in Aug '08 .. that's just after the 'real' Abhinav won the gold .. DON'T BE FOOLS TO COMMENT TO THIS IDIOT's BLOG !! :D

Smruti said...

Are.... he started his profile after winning that
gold medal.....that is in Aug 08..
And yes it is true because in an interview
(i dont remember when was that interview scheduled
i think it was on CNBC TV18 - Beautiful People)
he was asked by that interviewer about his blog post
"Monkey Off my back" and he(abhinav) explained his views
on that post....
so he is not a fraud but 'real' abhinav bindra-the gold
medalist for sure....
n yes u cant fool us by writting such a comment.....
even abhinav will have a laugh while reading ur comment......

hi Mr. abhinav bindra,

this is prabhjot anand this side. i am searching for a person to introduce me into shooting since 7-8 years but feels like there is no one in India at least to help..

well, i heard from someone that you are about to start some shooting range in Chandigarh or near the city with international standards..
