When I asked a few people that why cricket is preferred to Hockey,the most common answer I got was “Due to more revenue being generated by Cricket than Hockey”. Well I guess the biggest solution to this problem is that Hockey should be popularised by the Government of India rather than Cricket.Even countries like USA didn’t allow cricket to influence their national sport and Soccer & baseball may not be prevalent in many countries but is a game preferred by many Americans and why wouldn’t they do that ? After all it’s their national game,unlike us who have totally neglected the national Game & become worshippers of cricket.
How many of us know that on friday our hockey team(s) (women & men) both are working their best to make it in the finals of Olympics?
Blaming people for not supporting Hockey cannot be justified because our government also plays a major role in (not) publicising Hockey. No steps are taken by them so support the National Game.
So before it’s too late go and Support our Hockey team today at the Major Dhyan Chand Stadium in New Delhi.Feel proud to be an Indian. 🙂
