the golden 'rani'
I am a hardcore Cricket fan. Keeping an eye on all the cricket matches happening internationally is in my blood. Also those Ranji/Duleep/Irani Trophies too. But today I pay tribute to a person who won a Commonwealth Gold for India.
Its Kunjarani Devi. The 38 year old lady from Manipur who lifted 166 Kg in snatch and clean n jerk events in Weightlifting.
I salute the spirit of this lady whom we all do not know, who doesn't yearn accolades like an Anju Bobby George or a Beenamol, who is still craving to see an Indian gold at this age.
I salute the way these guys work to bring our country on the World Map and make us proud. They don't have any endorsement or sponsors, they don't create a Sania Mania or Dhoni Dhamaka and they fight all kinds of difficulties all the way from the officials to the coaches.
They just perform
Hats Off To You Ma'am
