London Olympics, Wordgathering, Vol. 6, Issue 1, March 2012

Pravat Kumar Padhy


Athletes love the track to have a spot finish by compressing the time in between each leaping step. Everyone wishes to sprint the quickest. Sitting on a wheel chair, I watch the game and wish all of them good luck in their endeavors.

With no confusion, the time is distributed to all of them and they reach the winning spot one after the other. It is indeed a great short journey, no matter one reaches a bit later than the other. You aim for the goal and that is called the spirit of the life!
