CONGRATS Abhinav Bindra for winning Gold medal in years for India.

Now what ? Upon his return,he will be the HERO for a while in Indian sports arena [??], and he would receive cash incentives and "prestigious & honorary" awards by the government for his feat in Olympic games 2008.

But,i find it hard to understand as why Indian sportsmen were never encouraged or provided with enough opportunities for training and exposure PRIOR to achieving a remarkable feat in an international event. Here is an example of a wasted talent. .Its a pity that a country with a population of a billion cannot even produce handful of quality sportsmen !
