For a minute I thought that this would be a place where the greatest Indian spinach dishes will be available as "performance-enhancing" substance.

Then I was shocked that people like Bindra, Dravid and Padukone would actually call it by that name... And finally breathed a sigh of relief that it was only the newspaper scribe who picked that unfortunate title for the article :) .. "Performance-enhancing center"??? Haha.

But I loved this
“I would like to congratulate Abhinav for how quickly he found the vision and brought the whole thing to fruition,” said Dravid. “It actually took me two to three years to decide what I wanted to do. That’s probably the difference between a sharp-shooter and a Test batsman!”
Dravid is so cool. So good at thoughtful lines which are sometimes quite funny too.

Wonder, what happened to Rajesh Bind, a very "promising" javelin thrower. He was chosen by OGQ, as per the above report, in 2013 when he had slumped to 74-plus from the 80-plus he had the previous year. Then next year he slumped further to 70.20. He has not been heard since 2014. Perhaps OGQ can give us some information.
