Finally, I think, things might now be looking up for our forgotten national game - hockey. Above is an amusing sight which I captured for you - children playing hockey & each one armed with a cricket bat!! Talk about one game at the cost of another!
On a serious note, it is surely the result of the good performance of our national team in the recently concluded Hockey World Cup and the much needed marketing efforts, which have resulted in to a revived interest in the game.
Even though our team is obviously leagues behind the Germans and the Australians, I have the feeling Hockey in India is this time on the verge of attaining the critical mass, which would get things going.
