True. It's unrealistic to expect Indian athletes to win boat loads of medals because of lack of resources and infrastructure in general, but there are a few sports like badminton, shooting, tennis, wrestling, (hockey?), etc. where we've started to show some promise. Winning a medal or two in areas we are good at would be an amazing feat. Hopefully that would encourage our sports ministry to invest more to build better facilities and programs with future events in mind

On a related note, hope Abhinav Bindra's message reaches the right people:

Re: Olympics! Will you be watching?

Agree with Bindra.. You need monetary assistance, coaching and facilities if the sport is not a full time carrer option. Being from a developing country most folks choose proven dependable career options other than sports. A neighbor friend in Bangalore was super good at national level in tennis but chose a sports quota engineering seat

Bindra was able to play as his father apparently has a business of air pistols and is quite well off. I knew someone who was his classmate in Chandigarh.

p.s. you mistakenly added a space between "a" and "Poetic"... and forgot to call me a sardar
