Day by day, Ré work-space gets better. Being equipped with five workstations, boards to scribble, 24×7 access and plenty of space to discuss, have meetings and so such more to do, everyone who is a part of Ré would be found indeed happy to be with us. This week we have been following up with the progress of each review proposal and we assisted them in doing modifications with the proposal and the budget as well. We discussed with our faculty in charge of how to go about it without any confusion in the future. And he also assisted us with his valuable thoughts and ideas.
And with our first exploration team going ahead in the process of learning about machines and the feedback from the team is also really amazing. They also socialize with their team members and learn something new from their teammates. The main objective of the exploration circle is to learn something new which will keep them interesting. Our next exploration team is ready and they will be starting their learning as a team soon in this week.
A week filled with feel of patriotism on 15th of August where India celebrated the 70th successful year of Independence and with our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s kick start speech in which he spoke to our countrymen about the need of supporting our athletes when they don’t do it to the podium finish .This reminds us the all-time quote of Olympics:
“The most important thing in Olympic games is not winning, but talking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but to have fought well.”
After three days of this announcement from our Prime Minister there arose an Indian flag proudly by a dynamic women wrestler, Sakshi Malik, from India on the early hours of the auspicious day of Raksha Bandhan in Rio de Janerio, sports complex for 1.3 Billion people of our country. The winning moments of the 6 minute match will never fade in the eyes of the people where she uplifted the opponent in the last 5 seconds to fight back from 4-5 to 8-5. Every time a brother gifts his sister on Raksha bandhan, but this time a sister gifted us all a bronze medal.
On 19th August, all the 1.3 billion people were sitting in front of their TV to witness the women’s badminton finals. This is the very first time where all our countrymen came together to support a non-cricketing game. And she, P.V Sindhu, had huge pressure as she is the 10th seeded and has to play the world no.1 player Carolina Marin of Spain in the final. She had the momentum being set in the first set as she fought in the earlier matches and she won the first one. The Spain player came strongly in the second set. And the decider was a nail biting one where she lost the game narrowly after fighting till the end. It was a proud moment for the entire nation. She became the first woman in the history of Indian Olympics to receive a Silver medal. She made India proud and in return the people of India greeted her saying:
“Second place is just the first place loser; come on Pride of the Nation”
