HOCKEY – WHERE IS INDIA ??

When does something fail?? When does one loose interest ???


In today’s world ….the answers to both of the above questions is simple – MONEY!!!!
or rather the lack of it.

When a film like CHak De …. could win hearts …and mint money with Hockey as its base its ironic that the same game could not be played with the spirit shown in the film.But where is the real money , sponsership and encouragement for our hockey players……even tennis which only a limited few in our country can afford to play get more coverage on the T.V than hockey.From NATIONAL GAME TO NATIONAL SHAME!!!!

It is high time that the government sat up and took notice …infact they should have done so long back…years back when we slipped down to 3rd , 4th and then 8th spot in the olympic rankings……Money from the better earning sports like cricket has to be diverted to help other sports like Hockey and Football.Not everybody can play cricket…the talented players in the other games should be encoureged and funds can be shared for this purpose…….

Can we start today for the next Olympic games…can each one of start loving hockey as much as we love cricket and make sinceres moves to support the game.With proper support from teh grass root level ..the national game of our country can certainly live up to our expectations….schoools , colleges ,states should be instructed by the government to give a special prefernce to our national game and funds should be provided likewise.If required foreign coaches should be hired….we as a cricketing nation wiht some of the best players in the game are always looking a t foreign coaches for our cricket team ….

SUPPORT OUR NATIONAL GAME!!

    Hi I was so sad that India lost the berth to Bejing Olympics. The governament has demoted the Hockey and it is sad that IHF admininstration functionaling is pathetic and the board has to be revamped.

    Hello,

    The problem in the society is that victories and good performance are remembered for a short duration and forgotten. Cricket and the players are a classic example of this. Good Performances and victories are taken sky high and immediately when there is a defeat or a poor performance, every good performances are forgotten and are thrown back to the earth from the sky.

    It is easy to niggle and get sadistic pleasure out of another’s misery and that is human nature and hence it appears that it has prominence, but t is negative prominence.

    Regards,
    SERVICE TO ALL

    Yeah, i know every one are angry why only Cricket is been give more important …
    I am afraid that future generation will also forget that Hockey is our National game.

    I guess everyone will look up to it when any Bollywood stars start a Hockey league like they have started for Cricket.

    Hockey is India’s national game. As Govt and majority of Indian people dislike anything Indian (national) hockey has been re-named as India’s national shame.

    As cricket is seen as a good business, cricket players are being auctioned and getting good price. People and companies buying them expect to reap good profits. But who will buy hockey players?

    How many Indians watch hockey matches? Most of them see hockey in films. Recently they voted for giving Filmfare award to hockey coach in the film. This actor then goes and participate in the auction of cricketers.

    Now Indian hockey team will win hockey matches in films only.

    Hockey is a hot favourite game but in films. Filmy hockey coach wins world cup and gets Filmfare award but real hockey coach could not even ensure entry in to Olympics.

    As you rightly say, Indian peoples” reaction to win or defeat in games is on extreme side. But the way people love cricket, may be for shorter duration, is not reciprocated by cricketers and those in cricket administration. For cricket is only money. In a gentlemen’s game, players are auctioned like a commodity.
