  2. Deepak Says:

    So sad that these real heroes get so little media attention and even little support and recognition from the Govt.

    Good to see a positive post from you, instead of the usual BJP bashing.

    Kudos to this brave athlete. True star of Karnataka and India.

  5. Sanjeeva Says:

    Well said Deepak! Agree with you. Bravo Girish

    Sports ministry has announced 30 lakhs for Girish. Let us see how much our state government gives him. Remember Yeddy had announced free sites for our cricket players. I hope Girish gets a site and a cash reward.

    I earnestly hope Nagaraje gets his due now. A look at his attire says it all. His is definitely a rags to success story through sheer hardwork, willpower and a never say no attitude. I do wish accolodes follow. I would surely hope to be at the airport to receive him and hope the State Government honours him and gives him a hero’s welcome. Well done, maga!

    I congratulate Girish on this feat. Exceptional athlete. No words can describe what he has achieved. Amazing human who has overcome all his challenges. Very inspiring. Thumbs up to this extraordinary athlete. Hope the government recognizes him gives him his due instead of bestowing goodies on Cricket only.
