May the tribe increase

Congratulations Abhinav. For someone whose first real Olympic memory is 0.01 seconds and Cristina Cojocaru, hearing the national anthem play in Beijing is a huge deal.
You are modest. This is refreshing but Gavaskar, who had a different take on self-promotion, put it well after reaching 10,000 runs in Test cricket "...others might reach the milestone too but everybody will remember who got there first, much as everybody remembers the first conquerors of Mt. Everest, Hillary and Norgay..."
Enjoy the rest of your time at the Olympics!
