It is indeed heart warming to see Abhinav Bindra win an individual gold in Olympics. I am quite sure that this is not the first gold that India will be winning. If not this Olympics, it is quite possible that future Olympics is bound to bring us more medals.
While the cynics among us may counter that it took us more than fifty years since independence to win an individual gold medal, I would like to point out to those cynics that for those years, India was living under a self-imposed, nay, Nehruvian imposed utopian socialist dream. In a country of a billion people, it is impossible for everyone to get everything.
It's just a matter of time.
