Glorious moment.   
Aug,12,2008
 

India wins a Gold after 25 years and the first in an individual event. I was absolutely thrilled to see Bindra receiving the Gold, and I had goose bumps when Indiaís National Anthem began playing. What a moment! My congratulations to Bindra for his achievement. He has done India proud and given us all a moment to celebrate.

I would recommend to everyone to do a google search on Indian Hockey at the Olympics. You will be amazed to read the reports of Indiaís achievements in the game. Absolutely fascinating. We were leagues ahead for decades, donít know what happened after that.

At this time I cannot help but remember the reaction of certain people across the country when India had lost a cricket match/tournament and people began attacking the homes of various players. How easily we forget that our sportspersons are trying their best. They too want to win. They are the ones who have worked day and night and are certainly more upset than we the supporters are. At that time instead of standing by them in their moment of loss and dejection we attack them. And I put a large part of the blame on a number of TV News channels at times like this, who only fan tempers and in fact glorify this kind of hooliganism.

But back to Bindra.

Well done, and thank you for bringing us glory and joy.

Love.

Aamir.
