If you are thinking who this person is and why am congratulating her. Well thats exactly what am trying to convey then, cricket is not the only sport in India there are other sports also.
Saina Nehwal is 16 yr old from Hydrebad, India who has won the women’s Badminton Phillipines Open yesterday and the first Indian to do so. She is young and in her prime. I hope the Indian media do not spoil her by making her endorse advertisements and stuff.
She needs to be promoted and media needs to help but not by making her appear in stupid ad’s.
Its actually pathetic to note that
1) No blogger has blogged about her (results from Google search tell that)
2) The media just reports her winning the tournament
If for example Sachin Tendulkar hits a century almost the entire sports section in the print media is covered with his photos and people reviewing about it. Same goes with the TV media also. But this young girl has achieved for India what others have failed to do and there is no interview of her’s featured.
If we dont encourage people like her how will there be somebody in this hugely populated India taking to other sports except cricket.
1) Dhoni endorsed lot of products, his job is done. In the current West Indies tour he has not performed. Dont tell me lack of form, how can that happen suddenly.
2) Whats with Hydrebad that produces talent youngsters
3) Dont bring her down like Sania Mirza
Congrats once again and hope you wont get carried away by the media attention if at all given. Its also nice to know that Mittal group is taken up responsibility to sponsor you.
