Indian shuttler Sourabh Verma wins Rs.51 lakh Russian Open- Let’s appreciate him

We live in a country where real-life heroes don’t get much media attention but the filmy heroes are always in the spotlight for all the infamous reasons. Why do we fail to appreciate the heroes who extend their valuable contributions to the country?

Indian shuttler Sourabh Verma hogged the limelight for winning Rs.51 lakh Russian Open.  Sourabh might have lost the first set but he didn’t give up so easily. He had a lot of catching up to do and so, he fought back and came from behind to clinch the men’s singles event and lifted Russian Open Badminton trophy at Vladivostok.
