Hope that the Sports Minister and the PM read this story about Rajam, who should be treated as a Nation's Pride and A Rolemodel

80 medals - no use
by bishal kay on Jan 19, 2010 10:53 AM  | Hide replies

This is sheer negligence of her parents. Why did they not hand her a cricket bat and ball when she was born just as normal parents do in India? Now what is the use of those 80 medals. If she were playing cricket and made even 10 runs or scalped a couple of wickets, it would have earned her lakhs of rupees. What a disgrace.

Mr. Bishal..it is probably your glorious misconception that if someone is good in one sport, then they can excel in any sport. Thats not true.

Moreover, out of every 1000 people who try to become well-paid cricketers, do even 10 really make it. Coz if that was the case, in a country like India, with such a huge population, we would have tons of amazing cricket players, and famous too!!

We feel terrible when we hear stories like this . We can never expect from this political system - which is only for bleeding the nation.

We feel if you can also give How we can help them - that is an account or NGO which will ensure the funds will reach them we would be happy to do it .
Next never ever include a politician in the NGO as we feel the moment they are involved the money will be syphoned .

That will not happen unless we start winning in something else. Till the time we fare poorly in International Athletics, people will not care. Where do our Athletes stand in Global terms. Our Athletes come, 20th 25th etc in global events.

People like to see India winning not just competing and till that happens people will not watch that sport, hence no TV coverage which in turn means no money for the sport

Excuse me SM, this lady has won 80 medals for her country. Is it not a worthwhile achievement? If she were in cricket, and made even 10 runs or taken a couple of wickets, she would have had lakhs of rupees. We must stop promoting cricket and patronizing other games.

Wasted time running.
by Dhanurkant on Jan 18, 2010 05:03 PM  | Hide replies

She wasted valuable time running and winning medals most of her life. Rather than running, if she had atleast sit and studied with minimal effor for a govt exam she would have easily got a job in sports quota with lavishes and comforts. Why now blaming govt and lamenting that her life is in penury. Normally opportunity knocks the door once, but she was running away from opportunity and busy chasing medals all throught her life. One can only pity for her state. People should learn to utilise opportunity.

I am really sorry to see a bunch of jokers who have no concern about fitness. This is fact will be the downfall of our country - lack of physical fitness.

It seems you do not know what passion means.. I guess, everyone should have a passion or a dream in life. Otherwise the life is waste..

Yes, agreed that everyone should have passion in life. But don't make life a part of passion.

Do you really think every soul should sit and study and get a 9-5 job. Obviously she loves what she is doing. Sadly our society doesnt encourage such atheletes.
From what I can see all the "studies" that you had gave you a degree and a job but not common sense or culture. Sadly our country is full of educated morons like you.

Your name itself shows how dumb or immature you are. For the coming Diwali, tie a rocket to your back and get lost into space.

I never discourage anyone to explore their own passions. But ultimately, you are the script writer for your own destiny. It's all in your hands to shape your future. Don't crib on the govt or blame anyone.

there could be two reasons for playing a particular sport
1) to win medals and bring glory to her and the country
2) so that she can apply for sports quota as you would probably have done.

This lady definitely played for medals and glory
