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.
