I am very happy when I first heard the news in Radioone while driving to work in the morning now. India’s Abhinav Bindra has won a gold in men’s 10-metre Air Rifle event in Beijing.This is India’s first ever Olympic gold in any individual event and ninth in total. So far the nine gold medals have been won in group events like Hockey. India is growing by every other parameter in the last 50 years – whether it is eradicating poverty, education, economy, Nuclear Power, IT Services, etc. but it was a shame that India hasn’t performed well in sports. We are all celebrating this in our company now with some Cadbury’s chocolates.
