    Aap har ek player ki ek se badh kar ek daastan hai jo jaaney par hamare sina garv se bhar jaata hai, bohot mehnat aur qurbani ka fal hai ji aap sab ko saare desh ki pyar aur support mil raha hai. Gold medal🏅 thore ke liye choot gaya toh kya aap saare team ne 130 crore logo ka dil jeet ke aaye ho aur ab toh bas aage hi jaana hai safalta aapki kadam choomegi, Jay Hund

    Congratulations to Indian women's hockey team...y'all will be forever remembered in the annals of Indian competitive sports...4th place is as good as bronze! I hv also learnt that many of Indian athletes are from poverty stricken families...in the case of Neha it just took a pair of shoes for a star to be born...likewise I believe there are thousands of Nehas out there in the great Indian nation who are just waiting for some kindness and support...hope relevant authorities are aware of this and look for these talents scattered all over the nation and provide them support & guidance without any biasness 🙏🏽
