HI all!! India is a population of 1 billion/ 100 crore and we win hardly a medal or two in the Olympics.. this is one of the most discussed topics in GDs. A discussion with reasons and solutions for dicusions would be great!
1. Lack of infrastructure
2. preference for white collar jobs
3. domanance of cricket
1. More sports facilities at young age.
2. better media covereage
it's corruption and filthy politics which is hampering the progress in every sector. coaches are accused of sexual harassment, in facilitation ceremonies boxer like vijender singh is denied award money and ordered to submit proof that he had won medal in asian games!! fatso like abhay chautala, psychos like M.S.Gill are heading various sport authorities. in such a scenario one should not expect any medal. why will one go for such a sport. in india sports means just cricket. entire system must be revamped but for that india must be pulled out of vortex of corruption and that's not going to happen easily.
since India is becomming more and more open to other sports our chances to win medals are also increasing. Also our performance in the ASIAN games was worth noting. Further as regards the mindsets of the parents it is not far when they will start accepting that sports has brighter outlook
