Cheeku was sadly watching Indian golf player Aditi Ashok walk acros the Olympic golf course, when Damru came and sat behind him. He tickled Cheeku softly.
Cheeku: Damru! Not now. I am not in the mood to laugh. Go and cover the Olympic Games with your team.
Damru: You don’t worry about that. I am here to do my job only, but tell me why are you so upset?
Cheeku: Will India not win any more medals at the Olympics this time? Because tomorrow is the last day.
Damru: Ahh! So you are upset because Aditi Ashok could not win a medal in golf?
Cheeku: Yes, I wish she would have.
Damru: Cheeku, I didn’t expect such a statement from you. You know how hard Aditi Ashok must have worked for golf. She must be more heartbroken than you for not winning a medal.
We should encourage our athletes. It isn’t that easy to win a medal, is it?
Cheeku: Hmm! I know I am being unreasonable.
Damru: It’s alright! Didn’t you see how much effort she put in! Nonetheless, she finished fourth in the women’s individual stroke play.
Cheeku: Yes man, I also saw her try to get a birdie (1-under par on any individual golf hole) on the last shot, but she failed. Only one stroke took away the medal from her.
Damru: So, now do you understand, a player is not the one who gives up playing because of the fear of defeat, a player is the one who plays till the last breath to win, no matter what the result is.
Cheeku: (Laughs) Yes, Khel Baba Damru ki jai! Thanks for giving us so much knowledge.
Both start laughing and cheering for Aditi.
