Social: Republic Day wishes from athletes beyond the sea

By , in Social on . Tagged with: ,

68th Republic Day for the country set the day in motion by singing the national anthem, hoisting the tri-colour flag that flies high in the air amidst the breeze free of chaos and, yes,  followed by distribution of chocolates.

Yet, what makes the day more colorful and grand is when people from various countries wish us wholeheartedly [We assume it to be].

Indeed, January 26 of 2017 is made truly worthwhile, as eminent scholars call – ‘that made my day’ –  when famous sports personalities posted the wishes on their social media accounts to trigger up further joy across the Indian sub-continent.

Tottenham Hotspur, the Whites of England, registered its Republic Day wishes on Facebook page. The post had its star striker, Harry Kane, holding the Indian national flag along with a broad smile in his away kit.

Regardless of one of the strategies overseas parties use to widen the fanbase in India, still it’s heart-warming.

But, sometimes, to boil up things from warm to hotter, our arch nemesis has a way of handling affairs that unanimously raise our eyebrows.

Around a month shy from kick-starting the Australia’s tour of India, we have former and the current captain, Michael Clarke and Steve Smith, reaching out to the Indians with their wishes on Twitter.

Steven Smith is seen quoting, “See you all soon” – which sends waves of confidence and a reflection of the Aussie skipper’s valiant attitude. [ Why not when he has got David Warner out there pulverizing the Pakistanis ]

“I could not believe it. It was nice to get the call from him,”

Not just the lines from our self but from the 23-year Australian leg-spinner, Mitchell Swepson, who was called to represent his country, couldn’t hold his ecstasy when Shane Warne complemented his success.
