Bravo! the Jhansi Rani of Indian Paralympics

With the sweetness of #Mariappan’s victory still lingering in my taste bud, i was again more than happy to gulp down a glass of sweet lassie for #DeepaMalik who was paralyzed and confined to a wheel chair, yet who surged ahead to conquer the paralympic arena at #Rio2016 with a formidable shot put thrust off her neck which sent the 8 pound spherical boulder flying a distance of #4.61 meters. This effort from this 21st century #JhansiRani was more than sufficient to decorate the Indian sub-continent with a sliver lining which was previously achieved only by the formidable badminton protege #P.V.Sindhu.

I was emotionally compelled to read her story. I delved through the various physical and emotional trials she endured before being rendered physically ineffectual, and in spite of her physical inability she did not allow her mental strength to be insufficient. Nothing could stop her from garnering her inner strength to put behind all those things which demotivated her and to bravely gallop forward like the charge of the British heavy cavalry in the battle of Waterloo.

Deepa Malik is an epitome of success, who ensured that her life’s destiny was defined by none other than herself. I could not resist but I humbly bow down to this Iron lady who seems to have answered everyone’s life’s question!!


Heroism is the order of the Day!!

Everyone wants to be someone and that someone is always the one who fights for someone who wants to be someone!

I was totally enthralled last week when i had to stand-up for someone in that muted crowd where a persuading lot of political buffoons tried to hood-wink a group of commoners in a road show with their perilous insight. Soon after that event evaporated into the oblivion, the elusive feeling of standing up for a reason caused a soothing intoxication like feeling that remained in me for sometime.

However the receding memories of that roaring applause, secreted a craving essence which kept flowing through my veins. Addicted to this new found itching for heroism, i sought every opportunity to dazzle in dire situations. Ironically in many instances my self scripted maneuver turned out to be melancholy. I was always willing to live another day, seeking scripted situations where i can prove myself and satisfy my craving.

Seldom did this happen and with time the essence slowly lost its sting. I slowly realized that every dog has its day!

Maybe a few dogs might be a little luckier!!

Fruits of my ego..

As i was wadding through my late 30’s, i realized that a horrific feeling of being vacuumed by the vastness of my own thoughts, persuaded me to visualize ‘things’ not as what they really were!!

The deluge of unconventional thoughts that trickled down my rustic brain, allured me to focus on what was elusive to the human mind. Hence having carefully cajoled myself a few days back that i could blog my perennial thoughts which seems to flow from my pensive mind, to lure people who would be generous enough to accept the excerpts from my thoughtful exploits.

I was convinced that that this attractive preposition will propel me to a virtual stardom from where i could relish the fruits of my ego. I was absolutely on it, totally engrossed about choosing the most subtle topics which would be decisive enough to create an impact!!. ‘Gokka makka’ thats it!! (An exclamatory Tamil slang) , i did not even wait for my thoughts to conceive, and my pursuit in search of elegant thoughts knew no bounds, all five elements of nature was under my lens, i wondered and presumed that if Einstein was alive, he would have been definitely jealous of my prowess!

Thus began my pretentious journey to create an innovative blog. However, this journey was frequently marred by contemporary deterrents such as verbal sarcastic pranks from my all beloved near and dear. However i always mustered courage to jet back my resent instantaneously only to be thwarted again.

I have heard that great thinkers used to withdraw them self from worldly distractions to silent places which would kindle the various lobes of the brain thereby initiating thought process.

Eureka! This sounded logical and easy, withdrawing oneself to silent places!. Intoxicated by this discovery, i pondered which will be the most suitable place on earth that is silent and that which is embedded with suitable be continued..

At last a reason to cheer ~ Gold medal at Rio 

My eyes were drenched with tears when i heard the news that India has finally bagged a #GoldMedal in #Rio2016!.
A few weeks back i was a little disappointed when our Indian contingent returned from the #RioSummerOlympics without a single Gold medal!. Heartbroken, i consoled myself with the lone silver and bronze medal which we bagged in Badminton and Wrestling. However i was not able to understand why ‘India’ a Nation of more than 100 crore people was not able to bag many medals in #Olympics. There might be many reasons, but all those reasons only appears to be many excuses.

I was very disappointed with their performance and i was mentally prepared to wait and hope for another four years to see if any of our athletes would win a Gold Medal at #Tokyo2020.


Surprisingly, today morning i woke up to the news that India has won a #GoldMedal, immediately i presumed that our wrestler Yogeshwar’s bronze medal which he bagged during the 2012 London Olympics might have been upgraded to Gold due to the doping charges which were proved against the other wrestling medal winner from the 2012 games.
ironically, I found myself  jumping in joy when i immediately realized that my presumption was absolutely wrong!!
It was #Paralympics! where our own brothers and sisters competed with both their #PhysicalDisabilities and other contestants from different nations.
Our own #MariyappanThangavelu’s #HighJump leap, fluently draging his broken leg over the bar kept at a height of 1.89 Mts was sufficient to ensure that our #IndianFlag was hoisted in the #OlympicArena with the our #NationalAnthem being played in the background with the #GoldMedal hanging on his chest. This athlete from a small village in #Salem, #TamilNadu has made India proud, he might have lost his limb when he was very young but he has won the hearts of millions of people in India.
I can now boldly say that i was completely overwhelmed by this and i realized that #PhysicalDisabilities do not define a #HumanBeing, rather it is sheer #WillPower that matters!
