Writer Shobha De has landed herself in yet another controversy when on August 8 she mocked the Indian contingent that are participating at the Rio Olympics.


The accusation of Indian athletes ‘wasting time and opportunity’ didn’t go down well with the audience and soon her twitter account was flooded with fans and sportsperson expressing anger.



While India’s sports personalities called her comment unfair, the fans were not that forgiving and gave De a piece of their mind.


In the first three days India has come agonizingly close to winning a medal at the Olympics, but have faltered at the final hurdle.

Though they have not been able to win a medal, the performance of many Indian athletes have been exceptionally well especially looking at the level of competition they are facing.
