Despite 1.2 billion inhabitants, the emerging economic power's medal haul has been derisory: a total of 20 since it first participated in the modern Games in 1900. It won a gold, a silver and a bronze in 2008, and a single silver in 2004. China, its regional rival, with a population that is only slightly larger, won 51 golds four years ago."
