Another Olympic medal for India

Abhinva Bindra's gold medal in the Beijing Olympics gave the billion plus population of India a huge boost in self confidence and now there is another medal in the grappling sport of wrestling. Indian wrestler, Sushil Kumar won the bronze medal in the men's 66 kg freestyle wrestling. This medal in wrestling has come after 56 years. I would say that after years of being enslaved and persecuted by foreigners we are slowly starting to rouse ourselves and rise above the treachery of invaders who not only plundered our country of wealth and riches but also ensured that our mindset changed to become corrupt, dishonest and un-patriotic. But now after 60 years of independence we are experiencing a slow but steady turnaround. And these Olympic medals are evidence to that.
