How many medals are we potentially fighting for in Tokyo Olympics ?

We have had good runs in last 2 Olympic games by our own standards and getting into double digits may not be outside the realms of possibility although would be very hard. With Russia facing the risk of suspension, we may have better chance of hitting double digits even if they are all Bronze.
Only if we could excel in one or two games which have more cumulative medals but less players like swimming, Track & Field or gymnastics instead of huge contingent of Hockey teams (M & W) of over 40 players with potential of max 2 medals despite having won none since 1980. Even having 3-4 top rated athletes in each of these disciplines could get us more medals than we have won till date.
Otherwise even this time I expect Hockey teams to return empty handed with perennial story of heart break in the last minute of the game or bad start.

Shooting is by a long distance our best medal hope. There are four events where we dominated the World Cup circuit in 2019, and all are potential gold opportunities . I covered it in detail in a previous page : link

Medals are possible in wrestling - Bajrang, Deepak Punia and Vinesh Phogat are all serious contenders for a medal. Maybe a javelin medal . Hockey if at all we have more likelihood on the women’s side . They are strong enough to even beat USA to qualify . They’re probably able to beat anyone on a good day except for the unbeatable Dutch amazons .

And then there’s reigning world badminton champion PV Sindhu - who always does well only at the top level events . That’s why she’s never been world #1 with any regularity - she is a big tournament player .

2020 Tokyo Olympics might get into double digits. This time the relatives of the athletes are limited and are spending their own money. Abhinav Bindra's report showed that for Rio Olympics there were many relatives of the external affairs ministry who traveled and stayed in first class while athletes in normal.

Ajay Devgan scores superhit in box office, Tanaji is massive hit in Gujarat, North India and Bombay circuits (Day 1 -14.5 crore; Day 2- 20 crore plus.). Welcome to first 100 crore film of the decade.

Perhaps the first Ajay-Kajol pairing where the success will be attributed to Ajay.

( Notice i didn't say anything abt any other film, i won't deliver lukewarm news).

The recent protests were watched with dismay.

Simple desire to clear hostels of unauthorised thugs and regestration of new students invite such levels of violence.

No less than Deepika Padukone and her cronies comes in front to give support, and SM is on fire. Swara, Sonam, Anurag Kashyap, Tapasee, et al.

And support for what? Destroying server room? We are very foolish to watch films of these anti social elements.

Ramana Sir and other stalwarts were right, the BIF forces arrayed against us are determined and powerful.
As indics, we must be on our guard.

My reading of situation is such:
The recent drubbing at box office after Hindus refused to watch it (34% occupancy in metros !), followed by Smriti Iranis stinging comments , i expect Deepika to issue rejoinder saying " I'm proud Hindu, not against anyone, i stand for freedoms of free speech" or some such drivel.

A repeat of SRK saga a few years back.

Deepika Padukone's ads disappearing from television?

Is Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone's visit to Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) taking a toll on her television presence?

According to a report in Maharashtra Times, advertisements that feature Deepika, who is one of the highest-paid actresses in the country, are slowly
disappearing from television.

According to reports, leading brands have taken a step back over her association with the brands.

The actress has been facing a huge backlash on social media and several BJP leaders including Union Minister Smriti Irani since she stood with students
protesting against violence in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

The report further said that some channels have restricted the number of ads shown, while some have decided to stop showing these ads in question, till the issue calms down, fearing financial losses to both Deepika and the brands.

Quoting sources of involved with media buying, the report said that one of the brands' has asked them to stop telecasting her ads for the next two weeks, expecting that the row may slow down post that.

This lad from Jharkhand took 10.9 sec to finish 100m.With proper care and guidance if he can bring down the time below 10, then will be good prospect for India.

Good performances to start an Olympic year. Bajrang, Ravi Kumar and Vinesh Phogat all won golds at the Rome Ranking Series. To everyone's surprise, Gurpreet Singh also won gold in 86kg Greco Roman category. We typically never do well in G-R , so it was a surprise to get a medal, much less gold.

The hockey team won both matches against the #3 Dutch . They were trailing 1-3 in the 2nd match until they pumped in 2 goals in the 4th quarter and then won the PSO 3-1 . Next round against the world champion Belgians in February.

The badminton players are rusty, but there's time. Sindhu never seems to care much about regular ranking events but peaks at the big stage so it's always hard to extrapolate her regular form. She's hardly ever been world #1 but on the other hand is the most decorated shuttler in the history of the world championship with 6 medals, including a gold as reigning world champion.

In shooting meanwhile: India finish 2019 as world #1 shooting nation

Even a UT like Chandigarh got 7 Gold and overall 17 medals more than many big states. Chandigarh is a small city with less than 1 crore population.
