INDIA, A COUNTRY OF EXPERTS

India is a country of experts. Everybody is an expert on anything and everything. Everybody has an opinion on everything.

So, people who can’t even spell badminton properly now have an opinion on why P V Sindhu missed getting the gold medal. People who have never played a game in their butter-laced life dismiss our Rio Olympics participants as lazy, completely devoid of any grit and determination. In their cocooned existence, they can’t understand what it means to be a sportsperson in India. Unless, you are playing cricket..What all our non-cricket sports persons¬† have to go through to arrive where they have arrived. On the international level. How many parents from privileged background encourage their children to take up a sports?

People can talk about wrestling, boxing, badminton and hockey like they have spent years and years sweating over the games. I am curious to know which sportsperson plays to lose in a game? Who doesn’t love to win an Olympic medal?

And then Mark Zuckerberg has gifted Indians a lethal weapon called Facebook. So, the expert comments need to be shared, liked and gloated over.

Now, these experts can do a great service to mankind only if they keep quiet and take a chill pill.

(In the midst of all this, there are some who also searched about P V Sindhu’s caste on the internet. Only God can save us)
