Ace shooter Abhinav Bindra on Tuesday said he was disappointed for not qualifying for the final of his event but said he has no regret.
"Obviously I am disappointed, but such is life," Abhinav said in an interaction at Games Village before leaving for India.
"Let us face it, you can't win all the time, but there is no shame in not getting it what you want as long as you give your best to achieve that," he said.
"Failure is a part of life," he added.
He further added, "I could have taken easy way out. That if I had retired after Beijing. I was on a high but I decided to continue. Sports teach you many things in life. There are highs and lows in life. But I won't consider it as low because I tried my best'."
Abhinav asserted that he was ever willing to talk to media but there should be something to talk about.
"There has some thing to be answered some queries to be replied. I don't like to talk just for the sake of talking," he added.
The shooter is the first Indian sportsperson to leave for home after finishing his assignment.
"There is no use wasting my time here, I have finished my event so I am leaving, I have been away from home for long, so I am going back," he was quoted as saying.
