The Quest for Gold

Abhinav Bindra has clinched the World Championship gold in Air Rifle, the first ever for India in the 2008 Olympics in China.

My hearty congratulations to Abhinav. He is going to hit the headlines in all the newspaper dailies the next few weeks for this remarkable achievement.
During the luch break, I was discussing with my friend about India getting a gold in this olympics. I was telling my friend that it's not so easy for India to win a gold as I don't see any efforts being put by the government to encourage young talents. But I was surprised to see this news after coming back from lunch.
When US and China fight to increase their Gold Medal count, many other countries like India are fighting for their first Gold Medal. For India with more than 1 billion population, this shouldn't have taken this long.
