Saina Nehwal #6 in Badminton – Stop Celebrating

8 November, 2009 at 01:28 Leave a comment

In the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is King. So true as per headline making news that Saina Nehwal has regained the number-6 ranking in women singles badminton. She has no titles to speak of and keeps losing in quarters just when the competition gets heated but she plays enough tournaments to aggregate the points and get a good ranking. She is perhaps better than the Sania Mirza woman who has never won anything of note on her own in her life except easy money when she milked in her 15-months of fame to the max. Nehwal is also a lot better than all the heroines and models and beauty queens who seem to be all the rage and are seen as an image of potentiality of young girls everywhere. Saina is more rooted to the ground for now but conferring awards, unwanted sponsorships, forced role-model, mascot status et al. Pathetic. Let her be and fly. Stop the media hype and commissioning cheesy India flag-hugging celebratory caricatures…
