A Desi Inspiration
While India sits anxiously for the Pillai's and George's to get it a medal in the Olympics, they should also keep a prayer for Mohini Bhardwaj, a gymnast of partial Indian origin, who is a part of the US Olympics team. You can check out her profile here.

Even though I am excited by her genealogy, its her struggle which I find admirable. The girl is 25, an age that is considered prehistoric in the world of competitive gymnastics. Yet she has worked hard to make it to the team to realize her dreams, proving my long standing assertion that you keep achieving till the day you feel you can . Moreover, she has really worked hard to support herself (at one point she survived solely on power-bars because she couldn't afford any other food). I wish her efforts pay off. Way to go!
