Abhijit's comment on The ever critical loose cannon Shobhaa De – A woman who's ill-informed about Indian athletes

A country of a billion people, India has not yet open her account in Rio games. If that is not a matter of concern, consider this Michael Phelps has got more gold between 2008 and 2016 than whole Indian contingent since we started participating in Olympic games. It is important to have a spirit of participation. But not win anything despite sending one of the biggest contingent is difficult to explain. Winning gives a sense of pride to common people like us. Yes we cannot lift a rifle or run on hockey field. But I am not trained to do those things. Why not compare our players with those in the same field who are winning medals? Expressing disappointment in our teams performance is not a sin. Hiding glaring inability to win is not praiseworthy, either. Yes, our players have a lot of problems. They have to go through a lot of hardship. But once we are on the field competing, everything else goes into background. We have to be there to beat the best.
