India is slowly emerging as a power to reckon with in sports. It has been slow but the results are bucketing at the moment with a prime example being the collection of 17 medals by the Indian shooters at the ongoing Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Glasgow. We need proper coaches, infrastructure, a good regime and schedule to develop the players among various sports in our country but at the same time we also need people who can inspire our athletes to compete at the highest level. We can see that our country is slowly reaping rich success in various sports. Games like Shooting, wrestling, weightlifting, boxing and badminton are the ones where we are able to deliver success through a Read more

Samba reminds me of one song in particular Brazil la la la la la la Brazil. Don’t know about other people but the Soccer fans are desperately waiting for the World Cup 2014 to begin in Brazil.

Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents’ half of the court.
