Kya Baat hai, Mann! (What a great news, Mann) Kaur se dekho duniyawalon. (peoples of the world, see carefully)

This is sure to warm Indian hearts. The elderly lady, Kaur from Chandigarh who took to running at age 93 due to encouragement from her son has won three gold medals at the Masters Games held in Vancouver, Canada. That she was the only competitor in her age category is

just a trivia none wishes to dwell on.  The fact that she participated in three events Javelin, Shortput and the 100 meters run, speaks volumes about the spirit of this lady.

As the Indian PM Mr Modi plans for the coming years’ Olympics, he will surely be hoping to tap this spirit. The Indian PM in his monthly radio talk ‘Mann ki baat‘, has often spoken of his hopes for a India developing in an all round manner.  This Mann’s feat is no doubt special and will undoubtedly swell his already celebrated chest with hope.
