    Both of them go to prestigious CBSE schools in the city where many sport facilities are available to entice high profile parents' wards.

    Probably ice rink too is one of them.

    A moment of pride to us. I congratulate the winners, their parents and of-course the couch.

    Good luck to Ashwin in his endeavours - come with gold son.

    Let there be more emphasis put on sport, let us, being one of most populated countries in the world, represent India in large numbers as other countries do and win medals in similar numbers, not just participate.
