In the Indian contingent for Olympics, participants do share a team bonding. But for an average sports enthusiast that bonding is hardly noticeable beyond opening and closing ceremonies for mega-events.
But ace shuttler Saina Nehwal has come up with a strong video message to prove that individuals, who people think, hardly form a unit, are in fact one. In a campaign named #iAmTeamIndia, she urges sports enthusiast to consider a unit to the group of individuals who are likely to represent India at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August.
In the video, she can be seen sitting silent on a chair and picking placards from the table, one after other, with short messages written on them. The placards display that Individual achievements matter little in front of team bonding.
They indicate that India’s Olympic participants are alike in different senses and need each other to share sorrow and happiness and victory and defeat.
