Olympic Glory for India!

Jai Hind! Bharat Mata Ki Jai! Vande Mataram!
We have done it! We have won the hitherto-elusive Olympic gold medal and where did we win it? in China, the fiery dragon country which is always competing and strategising on how to take over large parts of our nation. The gold medal couldn't have been won in any better occasion or location or even the sport.

My Heartiest congratulations to Abhinav Bindra who won the first ever individual Olympic Gold medal for India. And heartfelt thanks for bringing glory to our motherland.

Abhinav Bindra (25), already a world champion has shattered the track record of India by winning the first ever individual gold medal at the Olympics. Sharp-shooter Abhinav Bindra won in the 10m air rifle event at the Beijing games today in a nailbiting finale. The whole nation went into great revelry when Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore won the silver medal in shooting in 2004 Olympics in Athens. But this feat of Abhinav Bindra has surpassed this and I am sure that Indians across the world will get a big booster of national pride.

Bindra, a Khel Ratna awardee, had earlier won the gold medal in 2002 Commonwealth Games in the pairs event and silver in the individual event. It is a moment of great pride to our nation and I sure hope that there will emerge more athletes and sportspersons who will surpass these achievements and catapult our nation to glory that it truly deserves.

We will take on the world and win over the entire universe not by military invasion or by crooked and deceitful religious conversion, but by our achievements, honesty and righteous ways. We won our freedom from colonial British through the predominant use of non-violent means. Despite thousands of years of invasions, persecution and slavery which let our nation impoverished, we have turned it around and started achieveing good economic growth. It is only a matter of time before we will take over the world and regain our original glory which we enjoyed till the marauding Muslims invaders and Britishers set foot and made our country chaotic and impoverished.

The Indian Economy has always been compared to the elephant which walks slowly but steadily. But I would like extend this connotation to sport, it takes time for an elephant to get up and start moving but once on the move it can run really fast and when it runs the earth around quivers.
