Book Review: Kolhapur to Beijing
With just five medals (if you don’t count hockey) in its 60 years of participating in Olympic events as an independent nation, India is not exactly hot property. But there is always hope.
Kolhapur to Beijing is one such story of hope. With the country sending out a swimming team (earlier, it was just the odd contestant) for the first time to the Olympics, 17-year-old Virdhawal Khade’s story will hold a lot of meaning for every growing, aspiring youngster.
