Congrats!!!! Thank you very much sakshi.Your bronze medal is just like a glass of water to a traveler in a long desert to thousands of sports lovers in India. We are proud of you
Even Starved country like Ethiopia has 5 medals. Indians consider themselves superpower. Superpower of corruption, dishonesty and injustice.
Finally……..!!!!!! I hope that useless minister Anil Vij dos not go around claiming credit for this brave girl”s achievement!!!!!!
Face saver medal for India – Finally. Cheers. Salman Khan would have won a gold in Shooting animal at short range. However the game was not allowed by the Officials.
This will also change attitude towards girl child in Haryana.

Congrats Sakshi! Say NO to Cricket. Support other sports. Encourage your children to take other sports.
