|THE champion- Saina Nehwal, I am your fan forever|
I have had the most wonderful couple of days watching wrestling, boxing, weight-lifting, tennis, badminton, Delhi, metro, shuttle buses, security, Wimbledon-esque queues, drama, emotion, the state of Haryana, the Indian spectator always eager to offer advice, firangs, flags, catcalls, India winning golds, the National Anthem, and most of all a spirit which is overwhelming. I insist all India needs to shine in ALL sports is just to bring these sporting events to India more frequently. I wish this Commonwealth was longer. I haven’t felt this spirited in such a long while. Never definitely in my lifetime in India. The Asiad happened before I was born.

|Lets go, lets go India|
The stadias had families, kids, old uncles and aunties- who knew their game and it was so so overwhelming to scream and shout for the country! Go India! Go champions! In expected sports- Wrestling, shooting etc. but also the unexpected ones- the swimmer, the gymnast, all the girls! What a wonderful time you’ve given us. 🙂 And it’s so endearing that most of our champions are so humble. Gentle giants most- even though they play rather dangerous games- I mean wrestling, shooting, boxing and still so so grounded. Mark of true champions, me says.
And the games are still on!! So, here’s hoping we win more golds and lot more medals!!

Here’s the queue of people in JLN.
GO INDIA! 🙂 I haven’t felt this India in a while.
