Many faces of victory

What does "victory" mean to you? Is it all about being seasonally patriotic and sticking a flag on the car for one day of the year? For some, it's being all Rajnikanth and being kickass at kicking butt, for others it is something non violent. Everyone has a different viewpoint. We asked our readers, writers and the slaves chained in the basement about their opinions.

-- Sifana Sohail (Absentee RS writer and globetrotter)

Victory is in finally catching the stupid mosquito that's been bugging you for hours.
-- Medha Monjuary (RS writer and part timer as Inara lookalike)

Victory is being able to run and jump with 6 year olds despite being 25 years past that. And surviving.
