Thus Proved, that…


India, a country of 125+ Crores (1.25+ Billion) people, has, may I say ‘managed’ to get 2 medals so far in the Olympics. Don’t think I am down-playing this. I am So swollen with Pride today that my Shirt would not fit! Haha.

Just a teeny weeny look at this ‘Darlings‘ (Rightly called so) of India.

After Sindhu won her Silver, – though this means she lost the Gold, – Practically the Whole of India Celebrated. Here’s an image, of Crowds Waiting to watch the Match.

Image from Twitter. From the photograph, I would say that this must have been at about 5:30 PM, whereas the match was to begin a whole Two hours later!

And, did I tell You, my very own Sister, a Die-Hard Hermit if ever there was one, who gets out of her house Only if she Must, in distant (for me) Bangaluru (Bangalore of old) was watching the match!


The Point is this:

Thus Proved that There are things that We Yearn for, Over and Above Earning Lots of money. Twitter was going Mad, as was the Media.

But even here, Titillation plays its part; after all, Sports is part of Entertainment. Leaving that aside, In Sports, Can We Imagine the Amount of Energy and Time these Sports-persons must have spent to Achieve results like these?

Let us take two scenarios:

One: The Sports person. She/He is Waking up, Going through the Toilet, Eating, Moving-about/Travelling, Sleeping… And Thinking about What? The Sport.

Two: The Majority of Us. Through all these Same things, What are We thinking about? …Money, Family, Sex, Pleasure.


The Victories of Sindhu, Sakshi and Cricket Prove to Us that there are things that We Ourselves hold High in Our Hearts.

Included in this would be A Better Future for Our Dear ones, which cannot be just More money, but, More than that,

Which We Do Not have.

It is also proved that We Very Firmly keep them buried Deep in out hearts, Not Allowing them to Raise their heads.

Because that would call for Action, Effort, Coming out of Our Comfort Zones. At the Cost of the Future of Our Dear Ones.


Resolve to Spend at least 10 minutes, Donate at least 4 Lines, on Facebook, Twitter or on the Phone, for the Betterment of Mankind.

      1. The statement struck me b/c the parochial school I attended as a girl was named after a St. Catharine. Not sure if it was the same saint. My school emphasized discipline, not rebellion (LOL)!

      2. Rebellion is a Strong word, and I do not know if the Catherine or even myself would subscribe to that. Dissent, Yes. …But the cath church is very careful not to encourage Dissent either! 🙂
