    The media, people and everybody went overboard and it is funny because the real issues were drowned in this flash in the pan success..I hope that the authorities, the Olympic committee etc wake up from the euphoria??? and concentrate on everything that was not right !

    You may be have hope that Olympic committee etc wake up, But I have not any hope. 

    I have hopes on our PM Modi and everything in this country comes under his purview and I am sure he is getting all the feedback himself because he keeps himself well informed. There are bound to be accountability and changes to come..


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Were the army shooters really bad or were the not able to compete with the worlds best ? there is a difference I feel ..However, with some effort from our government and sports ministry this can be changed in time ..

    Usha, the fact that army spends a lot on training the army shooters is a kind of privilege they get over other civilian shooters. That should be enough actually to produce the best shooters in the world. But as we have seen, the shooters failed to win any medals or put up a splendid performance does reflect poorly on the Indian army's training standards.

    No doubt they get some special privileges but I am very skeptical about how effective or even at par the training is while compared  with other developed nations. If our armed forces perform it is because of their own passion and patriotism and definitely not because of the training and benefits they have been getting from the government.

    Of course I am not debating their passion or patriotism at all. But the fact is that the training provided to the army shooters is at par with the world's best, so my question is, what deters them from proving they are the best?Let us face the fact, the Indians do not have the competitive spirit compared to the others.

    In army shooter get training to shoot enemy not a specific target. Shooting in game and in war is some differ.

    In army the sharp shooters pick up specific targets at great distances. They are not ordinary soldiers. You can read more about sharp shooters or snipers to know that they a just like marksmen and get special training at ranged to perfect their aim. See the movie 'enemy at the gates' to know about snipers

    Happy to know the intricacies of sharp shooters or Snipers.
