At a time when the world was busy congratulating Sindhu for her success, this person decided to make unnecessary rants on other female atheletes.
Trolling on Twitter may backfire at times. A ‘fan’, who was trying to troll badminton star Saina Nehwal after PV Sindhu’s victory at Olympics, had to face Twitteratis’ anger on Friday. At a time when the world was busy congratulating Sindhu for her success, this person decided to make unnecessary rants on other female atheletes. A man, who claims himself to be a fan of Saina Nehwal, mockingly adviced the Olympic bronze medallist to ‘pack her bags’. “@NSaina dear saina…pack ur bags..we hav found someone who knows how to beat the best ones” he tweeted.
The rant was enough to make anyone angry. However, a sophisticated Saina gave an unexpectedly calm reply. “Sure thank u..Sindhu is doing really well ..India is doing really”, tweeted Saina.
The man was quick to realise his mistake and took no time issue an apology to the sports star. He also said that he is still a fan of Saina. Saina again replied in a very firm manner. “No problem my friend..all the best to u” she said in response.
However, unlike Saina, Twitter was not so kind the person who made the undignified remarks and decided to make the person learn his mistake. Many came out in support of Saina who was the first Indian woman to win an individual medal in the sports at the London games 2012. Saina, who has maintained her rank in the top 10 in world rankings, has been conferred the nation’s top two prestigious sporting honours — Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna and Arjuna Award.
Here are some of the responses the reckless tweet elicited on Twitter:
1. PRANNOY HS ✔ @PRANNOYHSPRI

@NSaina @ImAnshS6 What a classy reply by @NSaina to a nasty and unnecessary tweet.

3. She was first one to bring us laurels and will always be no.1 .. They both are our pride of our nation no comparison

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Pranab Mukherjee, Virat Kohli, and a host of other celebrities on Thursday wished Sindhu for her final game at Rio. At such a moment, it was unexpected from anyone to make such negative comments. As a person rightly tweeted, the nation is proud of both the atheletes, there shouldn’t be any comparison.
