Our craving for gold in London Olympic reminds me a couplet I read in class X in Hindi.
सुवर्ण को ढूँढत फिरत कवी, व्यभिचारी,चोर .
A poet is always looking for a good word (su varn)
An adulterer looks for someone with a good complexion ( suvarn)
A thief is always looking for Gold. (swarn)
In the zero period there was a pact between me and my students (class IV) that if (we) Mary Kom wins a gold medal then every student of the class would get a Red Star on the Star Chart.
May they get a red star now and always.
Come on Mary !!
