Indian child makes world record but media never gave him due respect. Why?

It is no secret that India has produced countless brightest talents so much so that even other country people are mesmerized by it. Be it academics, sports or any other field, India’s aspiring minds have always lived up to their reputation and make a real case for themselves as successful assets.

R Praggnanandha, an 11-year-old boy from Tamil Nadu has done something great in life which others can only dream of. The smart kid who has the knack of making canny moves in Chess game has become World’s youngest chess master, the best milestone that a young prospect pulled off something spectacular.

To add the fact that he is the best and youngest to have ever graced the sport. Praggnanandha taught many people that age is just a number as anything in the world is possible. It’s all about the passion, grit and determination that keeps one alive and energetic in the concerned field. His inspiration is none other than the legendary Vishwanath Anand.

Having achieved one of the greatest feats in his career at such a young age, he should have got immense praises from all corners of the world. But, unfortunately, the media has never taken any note of this. The typical media is not fond of giving equal praises to each sport.

Every snippet of moments regarding cricket is going rife all over the social media. There is always been so much of hype when it comes to cricket. Why is it so easy for the media to emphasize only cricket and not any other sport? Is it just because cricket is the most followed sport in India?

Every sport deserves equal respect, the society has to change its mindset. To highlight the fact that the aspiring athletes should get the much-needed praises for their earnest attempts that they make irrespective of what sport they play. Let us give equal importance to all games in India! Jai Hind!
