Neeraj Chopra makes history as he goes out and wins for India the first gold medal in any of the track events in the Olympic games since independence. It is certainly a magnanimous affair and his village has been celebrating in the best way possible. The village that Neeraj Chopra hails from is known as Khandra and is located in the Panipat district of Haryana. A seemingly quiet and agriculture-based village, the ambiance took a turn when Neeraj Chopra took the run-up towards creating history in the Tokyo Olympics 2020 while representing his country, India.
Neeraj Chopra shares his ancestral home with his extended family in his village itself and they were excited to give interviews to the media. They took a note in mentioning the early life of the athlete as well as the Harley Davidson that Neeraj bought back in 2019. His uncle mentioned that he has always loved fast things, and the bike was his gift for himself after he secured a win in the Asian Games. Aside from that, the villagers are oblivious to the magnificent image he represents in Indian sport and just know that he throws the javelin, and is a child belonging to the community.
Neeraj Chopra Cheered While Others Jeered
As soon as the competition began, the road in front of Neeraj Chopra’s house became nothing less than a carnival. Every other competitor was jeered but as soon as Neeraj stepped in, the crowd roared in praise. With every throw, the cheers grew louder up to a point where you may think that he would be able to hear them all the way from Tokyo. As soon as it became clear that Chopra has succeeded in making his village, his nation proud beyond limits, the village went berserk. From waving the national flag from a pole to the distribution of sweets, everything happened in full swing.
