Earlier, the entertainment banner had announced that they would honour Indian athletes who would have won a gold medal at the Rio Olympics with Rs 1 million.

Now, the reward for Rio Paralympics winners is a gesture on similar lines --- that of saluting the indomitable spirit of sportspersons and champions, as every small gesture goes a long way.
