Not your Sanias or Sainas

Sport is pretty much de-glamourised in our country. Not many takers to start with, insufficient fund(or so we are lead to believe), plenty of scandals, and the governing bodies trying to hog the limelight.

I had an opportunity to visit sailing club thanks to a friend. When I spoke to the coach I found out many of these girls are medalists in many national rowing events and are training for the upcoming Asiad.

I also realised that there was nothing I knew about the sport. If you had one oar in each hand(like the girls in yellow are doing) it was called sculler and if you held only one oar with both hands(like the girl in blue) it was called sweeper. The sport in itself needed rigorous training, practice, precision timing and teamwork.

A very different view of the Charminar, kind of like the old v/s new, attractive colours and arches with the minarets in the backdrop. It is amazing how different perspectives can lead to very different visuals.

  1. great pic Lakshmi….

    its so true that sports are not considered primary….like any subjects sports also needs to be part of the schools so as art….most of the current teaching system concentrates on only science, mathematics and literature….going forward once the number of educated people hits a saturation all these areas will be well thought off…and god give me a birth then πŸ˜›

    think of school class in which photography, dance, sports is taught regularly like any other subjects….
