Dear Hima, The first ever gold at a track event in a world championship for India, came yesterday, in Tampere, Finland. How fitting that a daughter of this great country should bring it home, to us. As always, there is a lot of romance attached to this. From rice fields to the podium, you've brought Golden harvests everywhere. An ordinary girl rising and performing beyond belief, a staggering achievement in a world of male dominated sports, a unification of a country that lives and breathes with cricket as their middle name, Hima, you are a beacon. Of glory and of change. Why is it that we need to remember this victory? Why is this so important? And why should this be referred to, years and years from now? This nation doesn't believe in mediocrity. But all across the board, it believes in tradition, in culture that holds one sex greater than the other. This country wants to win. But only expects the sons to bring glory back home. And that is where you stand, Hima, at the edge of immortality. Of knowing that you can be the person who inspires millions and millions of Indians who want to play a sport that isn't cricket, of millions and millions of daughters who have been told that they aren't meant to show their faces on the world sporting stage. You can be the one whom parents make examples out of, whom history books print in resplendent gold and who inspires a legion of ordinary people to go on and achieve extraordinary things. At the last 80 metres, when you ran and ran and ran your way into folklore, my goosebumps told me that if ever I had a daughter, I'd raise her to carry the country's pride on her shoulders, just like you have. And I swear, I wasn't the only one feeling that way. A country stands and salutes you now.
