…banana padega. One family at a time, apparently.
It’s not that I’m not proud of Abhinav Bindra’s achievement, but it’s a searing indictment of Indian sports that our first gold medal comes courtesy the winner’s dedicated (and moneyed) family. And to add insult to injury, after he made it all the way to the Olympics on his own steam, the Indian contingent was so careless that someone actually got to his equipment and fiddled around with it!
Just to put things in perspective:
Abhinav Bindra: 1.
Michael Phelps: 11.
