Abhinav Bindra clinches first gold for India in Beijing Olympics!

Don't tell me you still don't know who Abhinav Bindra is... The guy has made us proud by winning Olympic men's 10m air rifle title today. When things were looking bleak and sad for India right from the beginning of Beijing Olympics Abhinav victory came as a shot of adrenaline for the disappointed Indian fans. Brilliant stuff!! And we hope other athletes get some inspiration and grab several more golds for the country.

Cool as an iceberg Abhinav sailed from far behind to win India's long-awaited first gold medal... infact India's first ever individual gold medal. Defending champion from China Zhu Qinan was left weeping with the silver medal.

Bindra, who faced criticism for failing to deliver on the great promise he showed as a child, said he was not thinking about making history in India. In fact he said, he was "not thinking about anything" at all.

Moral of the story... It's time for India to stop thinking and start achieving!
