    Olympic Medal, Apple iPhone, and me 

    Last two weeks were of great hustle bustle for Indian sports. Abhinav Bindra won the first individual gold medal in 10 m shooting event for independent India, later Shushil Kumar, a Najafgarh lad fetched a bronze in freestyle wrestling, the last one was in 1952 Helsinki Olympics, and on the same day, Bhiwani based boxer, Vijender Kumar ensured a sure bronze in boxing, 75 kg catagory. So far, this has been the best sports performance by Indian in any major sport event, the other mentionable achievements being winning the 1983 ICC World Cup under Kapil Dev, and the 2007 Twenty-20 world cup win under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy. Some people said that Abhinav won gold because he had enough resources to get out of the under facilitated  Indian sports system, we thought, perheps this is the way winners are created. But Sushil Kumar, a person whose father is a MTNL driver, managed to win a bronze in wrestling. True, shooting and wrestling cannot be compared, but I cant help thinking, is the system so bad that you need to be a multi millionaire to win a gold for country? If that was the case, then Sushil Kumar might never had a chance..

    A lesson is lurking in there for budding sportsmen out there

    1. If you are like Abhinav Bindra,a super rich having truck load of money, resources and passion to make it to the top, dont worry for a damm ‘system’ or anything related, just do what you feel will take you to the top.

    2. If you are like Sushil Kumar, or Vijender Kumar, maybe you have to rely on government provided facilities, even though one may say the govt lacks the latest technology and infrastructure, still, thats your best hope and best choice.  The government is too slow to do things, but once in a while, it does produce winners.

    3. Olympic events are great, but thats not the ultimate goal. take for example, a sport like Formula 1 acing is at par with any sports event, I think its the most expensive sport ever known to mankind, we should excel in that too..Dr Vijay Mallya, the head honcho of Formula Force India has got enough money to make a good car..leave that it wont beat Ferrari in near future, but still…their ad shows Shahrukh Khan saying – ‘I want to compete with the best’,  Good luck mate..  😉

    Yesterday, on 22 August, Vodafone and Airtel launched Apple iPhone ‘officially’ in India. Originally, the iPhone sported a tag of $499 and $799, many Indians thought they might lay their hands on the hyped beauty, however, things soon turned the other way, the iPhone is avaiilable @ a cool 31000/- and 36000/- which is approx $900 in terms of US dollors, isent it too high?? Add to it, 3G is not present in India, the TRAI, the DoT are still a distance from striking the deal with 3G providers, nothings finalized..then why do I need to buy a pretty expensive wifi device? I could go in for Netgear or cisco routers, they allow great wifi features..No doubt Apple iPhone got not so great response in the Indian market. Mr Steve Jobs, dont take Indians for granted, they will pay you more if you give them what they need, but no chance if you provide half baked products at an exotic price.

    The Apple iPhone has got several limitations.

    1. You cannot forward an sms.

    2. No bluetooth present. Apple tries to fill this gap, expecting that wifi will overtake bluetooth devices, but then they will have to wait for some time.

    3. A 2 MP camera, no flash, no video. No takers for this one.

    Now, about me..

    Well, me had pretty ordinary week, barring a few lectures by people, everything was the same as usual. Trying hard to overcome the rage, and I think I will be successful in doing it. 🙂
