“My mother comes up to me and I was grumpy and almost in tears and she comes up to me and says, ‘The most you could have won today was silver or bronze but you are gonna win a gold medal in 4 years time.’ I just shut up. Four years later it actually happened so never argue with a mother’s instinct.” While Deepika looks shocked at his mother’s beliefs, Bindra jokes, “Never argue with mother’s instinct.” said Bindra
