Rio games have not yet ended for Indian media, electronic & print and the latest 'social' - Rio2016 #8
Back in 2000 Olympics, Karanam Malleswari won the lone medal for India. Then the media did not cover as much as it is doing this time round. Social media was not present at all in those times so there were no way the story would do rounds and rounds. Malleswari was a woman and had 'Beti Khilao' been said and practiced, today we would have been celebrating the success of a few more women in the Olympics. Somehow, "Beti bachao; beti padhao" campaign started later and now 'Beti khilao' is being said with grand rhyming. And as everyone is busy saying that, the Rio games have not yet ended for Indian media, electronic & Print and the latest 'social'.
Now that women have won the medals, everyone is saying that women must be encouraged to participate in sports. No doubt it helps. At the same time, its extremely important to recognize the fact that encouraging women to excel in the field they choose makes them come out succeeding in their respective fields. Sport is indeed the most loved by masses, and that cannot precede the love women have for the fields they choose, whatever the field may be.

Though it's being called as an 'upset' by the tennis fraternity, I'm not upset but stunned to know that the current world number one player in men's tennis, Novak Djokovic, has lost his first round at Olympics to Martin Del Potro. Novac will have to wait for another four years! Actually, that's grueling Olympics can be. You practice for years to perform for few hours at Olympics, minutes and seconds in case of some sports, and you fail to walk upto the podium, and you have to wait practicing for yet another four years by being absolutely unsure of what's in store! But that's the reality. It's true with any form of the sport on any given platform. Olympics being hailed as the world's biggest platform for sports, some though, a loss is more than a loss. A defeat can be next to none. Coming back to tennis, Williams sisters' early loss in women doubles was unexpected too! Well, perceptually one's loss is another's chance. Life is too relative, you know!
Looking forward to see Nadal utilizing the chance and so is expected with Sania and co. Leander and his forced-doubles-partner had played a lot off the court and could not pay well on the court. Anyway, nothing much was expected from them, sadly, as their integrity as a team was just not enough if I may say so.
After two days of Olympic play, I woke up to a good news about Indian players and that's about our woman gymnast, Deepa Karmakar. Wishing her all the best to perform her best in the finals. Archers and shooters, so far, have clearly disappointed! Waiting to know about Bindra and Narang.
Injuries play an important role in any player's career. Or I must say 'fitness'! Very bad to know about the two gymnasts who got injured during their performances. Gymnastics to me appear as more of an art form than a sport form. I'm no one to conclude so though! Yet, they are one of the most entertaining events.
That's it for now.

In the moments of joy
In the moments of sorrow
In the moments of silence
In the moments of noise
As I remember the times we spent
Tears rollout, at times, yet I celebrate.
Times we spent together
Stay as the best forever.
Times we spent for each other
Never they will return no matter.
Times we spent being naughties
Remain as the sweet memories.
We now may be are at a distance
Separated by the boundaries of miles
Boundless is our friendship
Always will continue to be our flagship
Feel like missing you deeply every moment
Yet, memories of you turns it exuberant.

It feels as if these few sentences have spoken my mind. Memories are the best pals at which we can look, at any point of time. They bring back the emotions and by doing that they actually make us live the past moments for a while once again. Making as many memories as we can in this one precious life is the ultimate goal we must strive to achieve. And the best way to make memories is to escape to a new place, whenever we can. By doing that, we make experientially strong memories and hence they stay with us until we exist. Money is required to travel to places. Making money that's required to live and travel is sufficient rather than making money that's insufficient to let us experience life. Also, yet another way to have the most successful vacation apart from visiting home is to travel to a new place! Try once!
