Our Archers in London either seem to be on a Holiday or are feeling terribly homesick at the London Olympics ~ instead of smashing Records there they smashed my car windscreen here in Mumbai !
The Security Personnel at my Residence tell me that they did not hear anything but in the burst of wind and rain a small branch of a Tree in the garden had apparently collapsed and a big wood piece must have targeted my windscreen !
I’ve been arguing with them that the reason for the Windscreen being smashed are our Archers at the London Olympics ~ they’re either in Holiday mood or they’re feeling terribly homesick that they are shooting all over the place with some shots even landing back home in India and one of which cracked my car windscreen in Mumbai ! ~ one guard even agreed !
!@#$%&*() Even our last Big Medal Hope and World No 1 Woman Archer,Deepika Kumari just crashed out in Round 1 losing to a Brit,Amy Oliver who scored a couple of 10 while it was a losing 8 and 9 most of the way for Kumari
There’s nothing to really grin or smile about but what gets me is that I’ve observed that all our Men and Women Archers at Team and Individual Events keep grinning even while losing ! ~ I’m told it’s Therapy,advised by Sports Psychologists, to reduce tension and stress levels ~ for who ? the Archers or us ! ~ Making such a Conscious Smiling Effort to relax itself must induce anxiety !~ I’m also educated that it’s the swirling wind that changes arrow direction from a perfect 10 to 6,7 and 8 and even a 4 on the Target Board ! ~ True,but it’s an even playing field for all competitors ~ our problem is lack of consistency in High Scores ~ and a clear loss of nerves when it matters ~ Archery is more a Mental Discipline than others ~ and we lose it more often not !
I realise I am maybe a bit harsh, but I’m really angry ~ Archers and Shooters missing targets in London have cost me a Smashed Windscreen in Mumbai !
