"A great man always willing to be a little", is a quote that fits simple and humble Olympian Neeraj Chopra.
A small dream of mine came true today as I was able to take my parents on their first flight.— Neeraj Chopra (@Neeraj_chopra1) September 11, 2021
आज जिंदगी का एक सपना पूरा हुआ जब अपने मां - पापा को पहली बार फ्लाइट पर बैठा पाया। सभी की दुआ और आशिर्वाद के लिए हमेशा आभारी रहूंगा 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/Kmn5iRhvUf
The 23-year-old Chopra recently took his parents on their first flight and his joy knew no bounds.
Chopra along with his parents Satish Kumar and Saroj Devi were on their way to an event organised by his promoter JSW Sports at the Inspire Institute of Sports (IIS) in Bellary, Karnataka.
Besides Chopra and his parents, his coach and German biomechanics expert Klaus Bartonietz and Olympian super heavyweight boxer Satish Kumar were also seen seated inside the aircraft.

Why are we making things harder for Neeraj Chopra, the only Indian who can compete with the elite of global athletics? Why the controversy over his remark that his own javelin was with Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem before Chopra’s first throw in the final in Tokyo?
In a latest tweet, Neeraj wrote: "A small dream of mine came true today as I was able to take my parents on their first flight.”
Below are a few messages from his fans for the star Indian athlete.

To give more importance to your parents than your Olympic dreams, speaks a lot about your parents as well for bringing you up with Indian values. We are even more prouder of you than when you got the Olympic Gold for us.
