When the Commonwealth Games players returned home on Tuesday a hero's welcome awaited only a few - P Kashyap, Guru Saidutt and PV Sindhu.Jwala Gutta (right) and Ashwini Ponnappa wave after winning gold in the women's badminton doubles event of Commonwealth Games in New Delhi on October 14, 2010.

They then headed to the city's badminton academy to meet well-wishers. However, CWG silver medalist, Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa, were not part of this welcome. And Jwala Gutta made no bones of it. Lashing out at chief national coach, P Gopichand, Jwala said, "We were not even informed about it while he (Gopichand) is supposed to be our chief national coach. He is supposed to include all, and not just a few of his favourites," said Jwala. But the shuttler says she knows she wouldn't be 'invited' to the (proverbial) party. "This is something I have gotten used to. It was evident that we wouldn't be called there. Things have become so bitter that perhaps, even if we were invited, we wouldn't have gone."
