Ever since I was a child, I have been following the Olympic Games. I think I owe this to my father who was an avid sportsman, among other things. Though we would watch most sports events that would be telecast on the limited channels we had back in those days, the Olympic Games were special. There was something magical about the games, and it may sound funny now, but, being young, back then I would imagine myself being a part of the next Olympic Games as a participant. That water has definitely flown under the bridge now.
But, even today, I look forwarding to watching the Olympic Games with the eagerness and enthusiasm of a child. Let me tell you why.
