This is applicable on the games also.
Our national game is Hockey but the Indians are crazy about Cricket. It is nice that one is best in the games of the others but what about the national which is being changed by the tricky westerner.
We should play all the games, but should have more liking for our national game.
I am not saying that we should not promote other sports but still better an Indian team performs in a sport more popularity the game will get in India. This is obvious truth and that is why football, hockey etc. are lagging.
Cricket is most popular game in India. Cricket is mostly watched by all aged person.
Football is the oldest traditional outdoor game with minimum expense whereas cricket is expensive.
In the cricket game one has to spend huge money to buy kits and also require costly maintenance of playing ground whereas in football there is less maintenance cost.
All the more importance to a game which is of the other land made the national game hockey to lag behind and now you all know where we are.
Europeans changed the major rules of Hockey and introduces scoop from one 'D' to another, which was considered to be a foul initially. Just let me know that is India allowed to alter any rule in cricket likewise?
Even our government is not promoting Hockey to the extent it should be done!
I strongly agree with you. Indian government is sitting still on this issue. As it is our national game, we must take pride in it. Instead we actually don't care whatever happens to a hockey game.
I disagree with you on the point that football is an Indian game. It is only hockey which is the game of our land and also our National game.
But we can say that football is loved by the Indian in the eastern parts of the country. There is a huge craze for this game, which some times lead to riots.
