Where there is a will, there is a way

The latest version of the Olympic games [the ancient Greek athletic festival held every 4 years or the international revival of this] were as exciting or breathtaking as ever, though Usain Bolt stole the show! As far as India is concerned, millions of sports lovers watched events despite the fact that our “stars” were outshone by other athletes.

While the real sports lovers of India are still hopeful of the fact that the days are not far away when our stars will out-shine other stars before long, there are certain traditional fault finders who see Indian cricket as the real cause for our poor performance!

What they fail to understand is that cricket in India became very popular because it kept on producing its superstars who were free from self-pity or undue personal expectations. Apart from this, we have to bear in mind that Indian Hockey touched the Himalayan heights when the one and only Dhyanchand represented India.

No More Rivalries, Please!

Though the world has undergone a sea change during the past 40 years or so, certain developments seem to remind us of the adage, “old habits die hard.” One important matter which made it easy for economic and technical developments during the 40 years or so mentioned above is of course the attitude of almost all countries which are more concerned about creating a peaceful condition for such developments.
The so-called big powers may have their own reasons to retain their status but it will be wise on their part to rise above petty quarrels and make the world an ideal place for development on all fronts in order to make it clear that all countries have their own talents – be it movies, sports or any such facet.
