Today, there will not be any scope for negativism, to honour Abhinav Bindra's words. Even the fact that India did not even qualify for hockey in Olympics where we once ruled, will be pardoned.
By winning India's first ever individual gold, Abhinav has brought hope for crores of Indians.
When I first heard about this, I did not believe it, it was too good to be true. This is what I call truly 'breaking news'.
It was such a pleasure to watch the Indian flag go up while the national anthem was being played, just a few days before the 62nd Independence Day. And what composure and calmness after acheiving such a feat.
Abhinav, you have made us proud, you have united us, you have brought a lot of joy and cheer.
I hope this is just the beginning for India.
