Sports, Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) and We

The London Olympics 2012 finally opened to a spectacular inaugural ceremony that showcased a dazzling display of the latest technology, lights and fireworks. It is said that apart from the 80,000 spectators who had thronged the stadium for the inaugural ceremony, an estimated 3 billion people worldwide watched the ceremony on TV.

(Aniruddhasinh) has time and again stressed upon the importance of sports in our lives. I have personally played with Bapu (Aniruddhasinh), Nandai and Suchitdada during various trips and picnics I have been privileged to be a part of. The latest such occasion was when we had been to Umergaon for ushering in the new year. What stood out very clearly was their complete involvement in the game, their going out of the way to make the other participants feel at ease and shed their shyness and inhibitions so that they too enjoy the game fully.
