Lakshmi Gopichand’s quote about PV Sindhu – How media can damage your reputation!
Mumbai Mirror is being virtually thrashed on Twitter by sports lovers ..and others as well for twisting Lakshmi Gopichand’s quote about PV Sindhu!
According to www.catchnews.com :
Mumbai Mirror, we get that you’re a tabloid. We get that numbers are important. We also understand why you seem to think that sleazy content gets more traction. But this was totally unnecessary and uncalled for.
Lakshmi Gopichand, who represented India in the 1996 Olympics, now trains shuttlers along with her husband, Pullela. Together, they run a prestigious badminton academy in Hyderabad that has brought India much glory, many medals and a whole lot to be proud of.
Talking to Mumbai Mirror, a mistake in retrospect, after Sindhu’s iconic win, Lakshmi said:
“The idea is to provide today’s generation what we didn’t have. Sindhu has what I didn’t have back then – my husband as a coach”.
While writing the headline, the TRP hungry smarties decided to do away with the “as a coach” bit.
How or why MM decided to take this quote and twist it till it resembled a line from a K-serial is unfathomable.
