Happy Independence Day to all of you 🙂
On this wonderful day, I want to express my views on a topic “Future
of Sports in INDIA”
It is the perfect timing to write this mail, as Olympics is going on
and every Indian is curious to know how many medals we win this year.
We expect some amount of medals from the people who are representing
India there, don’t we? WE SHOULD. After all, India has a population of
But are we right to expect “GOLD” medals from the sportspersons
representing India? Just give it a thought
I don’t think so. Disagree of this? You might but truth doesn’t
change. We see great people like Usain Bolt , Phelps , Cristiano
Ronaldo , Lionel Messi , Roger Federer, “ETC ETC “, but how many of
them are from INDIA.
I know some of you must be thinking about our Indian God: Sachin
Tendulkar and you are right to do so. Isn’t this great- the best ever
player of CRICKET is an INDIAN? Why are we just stuck at cricket? The
daring yet elegant gymnast -Tripura girl Dipa Karmakar is an example
of India’s failure, hypocrisy and mediocrity. Most of the times I’ve
discussed this thing with the people around, I’ve got the same reply
“Our Government doesn’t support this“. Well, I disagree. We now have
leagues for other sports too; Indian hockey League, Indian Super
League for Football and similarly for Badminton and Kabaddi.
In the past few years, people are getting aware of the fact that by
just cramming the books is not only the way to be successful. Still
something is missing, because results are still not there.
A “SPARK” is missing. That begins with “US” “YOU” “ME” and every “INDIAN”.
Why don’t we believe that we can be at the top of the medal tally?
Why don’t we believe that we can be the best?
Why don’t we believe that we can create history in sports?
It’s time we start having goals, rather than dreams.
It’s time we start doing what it takes to be the best SPORTS Nation.
It’s time we start letting our next generation choose what they want
to do for themselves and for our nation.
It’s time we start supporting those who have given their heart and
soul for this nation.
It’s time we start BELIEVING IN THE FUTURE OF SPORTS IN INDIA.
If I can inspire even a single person with this effort I will be
But I refuse to believe that I can’t do anything in the progress of
this Massive Nation’s “GOAL”.
Whenever we were united for a single goal, we achieved. Our
Independence from the British rule is the biggest example of it. So
why can’t we unite again and create historical moments for our future
That’s all I wanted to convey.
