Major Rajyavardhan Rathore.
India's [ Images ] pride.
The man who honoured our country with its first individual silver medal at the Olympic Games [ Images ].
A man unassuming enough to admit the pressure was frightening.
A man brave enough to fight past it and reach for the silver.
Many of you out there must have met Major Rathore. Shaken hands with the man. Studied with him. Worked with him. Interacted with him
