These people are the ones who help in raising the bar of our country. They deserve their credit. And this award does them a lot of justice. These heroic sportspeople must receive our encouragement and praise as well. The spectators, along with the common man, also have a huge role in their rise to fame and stardom. I would like to congratulate all the Arjuna Awardees on their magnificent feats!
