I am ashamed! I haven't heard about him earlier!We always talk about our cricketers. If any cricketer scores a century or takes five wickets in an inning, we talk about him for six months. Then when Olympics come, we discuss the reasons why India couldn't win more medals, blame the Government and then go back to the television to watch the cricket match, most probably the IPL circus
When this has been our mental condition, a physically impaired athlete won Gold medal in Athens-2004 in javelin throw, creating World Record! After another 12 years (you have heard it right!), he has broken his own World Record and won another Gold at Rio Paralympics-2016 in the same event!
I am deeply ashamed that I didn't hear about Devendra Jhajharia earlier! My salute to this great young man who has made India proud in the world arena of sports.
