Synopsis: Something special is afoot in India.

Our athletes now depart for international events aiming to win medals, often returning disappointed with a ‘mere silver’. Bright-eyed aspirants in sports – from badminton to gymnastics – are training across the country. Homegrown leagues are attracting the world’s best athletes and professionals. The country boasts multiple World No. 1 teams and athletes, and sporting achievements are handsomely rewarded. Our next Olympic and Paralympic gold medals are talked about in terms of when, not whether.

Much of this was simply unthinkable at the turn of the millennium. Today, there is no longer a doubt that an Indian can. A country is changing the way it looks at sport and, along the way, how it looks at itself.

With personal accounts from Abhinav Bindra, Pullela Gopichand and Rahul Dravid, Go! features a never-before collection of essays by leading sports writers, athletes and professionals, who together tell a compelling story of India’s ongoing sporting transformation.
