India’s P.V.Sindhu, Football, et al.

*******

For me, it is always a Delight to watch P.V.Sindhu, the Badminton artist of India, playing. And today again she fought bravely, very bravely and well, and lost.

One Reason why she lost is the Stupid Rules about Time allowed one to freshen up. The match had gone on for more then 90 minutes, She was sweating, and even had some problem with her nostrils, and the ‘umpire’ being short with her could not have helped.

A match held at Dubai can’t be cheap, yet people pay that, to see her play. And many people make a living out of the ticket sales that people like Sindhu bring in. The referees are some of them who make their living out of the games of Champions. The Referee should have the brains and the grace to allow the Champions to freshen up. Sindhu was sweating, the other one was not, does it matter? Can anybody ask why Sindhu should need time to freshen up, – which after all means only wiping off the sweat most of the time, – when her opponent was not?

Going back, that Sindhu was sweating shows she was Not at the peak of her Fitness. …Coaches seem to give ideas about play, and in that case does Sindhu another coach to see to her Fitness? The two globs of fat that she has started to carry up her hips towards her back are a good indication of the point I am making.

Football? The Reason Indian football is ranked 60th or something world wise is because, our players cannot run for 90 minutes; run the 9 to 10 Kilometres that other international players can. A Question of Fitness.

Wish You Victories, Sindhu. You bring us Joy. Love to You. 🙂

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.

LET US BE GENEROUS ENOUGH, AND DARE, TO THINK OF OTHERS, …FELLOW BEINGS.

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.
