As an Indian one of the most beautiful sights is to see the tricolour unfurl with the national anthem playing in the background. And for it to happen at the Olympics when the whole world is watching is exceptional!
As cool and composed Abhinav Bindra climbed the podium today to receive a gold medal for his stunning performance in the 10m rifle shoot, he made a nation proud. It took us 28 years to receive another gold and the first individual one. But it was all worth it in the end. It made me emotional just hearing the national anthem played again at the Olympics.
I hope it inspires the rest of the Indian contingent too. As for Abhinav he has already marked his name in the annals of Indian sports as the first sportsman to win an individual gold for India. Bravo Abhinav!
