Modi to interact with Indian athletes selected for Tokyo Paralympics

Modi had discussed the inspirational journeys of some of the athletes on Mann Ki Baat, besides urging the nation to come forward and wholeheartedly support them

Prime Narendra Modi will on 17 August, interact with India‘s 2020 Tokyo Paralympic contingent via a virtual conference. The 2020 Paralympics will be held in the Japanese capital between 24 August and 5 September.

On 12 August, Sports  Anurag Thakur and the national governing body accorded a warm send-off to India’s 54-member contingent with hope of returning with the best-ever medals tally. Their previous best came in 2016 Rio Games where India won two gold, one and one bronze medal. PCI president Deepa Malik, who herself had won a silver medal in shot put at Rio 2016 Games, said, “The games will not be the same again after Tokyo2020 Paralympics. We are going to see a record haul of medals as our athletes are in prime form.”

Devendra Jhajharia, who is aiming for his third Paralympics gold (after 2004 and 2016) in F-46 javelin throw, is India’s strongest medal prospect amid the presence of Mariyappan Thangavelu (T-63 high jump) and world champion Sandeep Choudhary (F-64 javelin throw). 

India’s campaign will begin on 27 August with men’s and women’s archery events. The nation will be competing in nine separate disciplines. 

In July, the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS) had planned to postpone the national awards for a couple of weeks to include possible Olympic medalists from the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Games.

Anurag Thakur said they are expecting a good show in the upcoming Paralympics just as the Indian contingent rose to the challenge in the Tokyo Olympics.

Coming back to the Paralympics, Thangavelu Mariyappan, Rio 2016 winner, will be the flag bearer of India while Gursharan Singh shall be the Chef de Mission of the Indian team

I spend lot of time alone in jungles amongst trees where every day is a new discovery.

Do you know that trees experience pain, have memories and tree parents live together with their children?

An appreciation tweet for our @sewanyaya volunteer @rudrakartikeya. I introduced him to Naina Kaur's parents who are all alone after her murder by Tik Tok 'star' Shahrukh alias Sherkhan. While we support the couple financially, he meets them regularly, spends time with them
