HEIGHT OF DISCRIMINATION : DIFFERENTLY ABLED SPORTSMEN/WOMEN BACK WITH GOLD MEDALS - BUT WHO CARES? Add your voice, so that those who ought to hear this... will finally wake up from their selfish slumber.!!!
There was widespread media coverage. There was no shortage of sponsors. Why... even Sachin was on call..!!!
A delegation of 117 sportsmen were sent to Rio Olympics
They returned with 2 medals.
No media coverage.. No sponsors... And God alone knows where Sachin is..??
Compare that with
the Rio Para-Olympics.
We sent a
delegation of 19... that's right... only nineteen.
Strangely... no politicians or celebrities showed
interest to go with them...
bagged 4 medals..!!
Exception & small consolation : ONLY Tamilnadu Govt (The CM Ms Jayalalitha) announced 2 crore to the Gold Medallist of TN.
No this isn't about 'ABLE' v/s 'DISABLED... but it's still worth relating.
It's still not too
late... Come on Maruti Suzuki - give them a car each because BMW surely
And what about
those Khel Ratna Awards...and cash prizes..???
Wake up India... Ministry of Sports & Youth Affairs.
Add your voice, so
that those who ought to hear this...
will finally wake
up from their selfish slumber.!!!
