It was early in the day when Sanjita Chanu clinched a gold medal in Commonwealth Games 2018 but that did not stop the public across India from praising the sensational feat of the weightlifter from Manipur. From the former sportspersons to public office holders, a flurry of congratulations flew in on Twitter from everybody. After the gold medal-winning exploit of Mirabai Chanu, Sanjita’s gold has filled the Indians with hope and optimism as they are now expecting more from the Indian contingent participating in the ongoing sporting event.
