First the translation,
Where did the game of Hockey originate from?
Why is it National Game of India?
.
Origin is not clear. Graphics of similar type of game with curved sticks and ball dates back to ancient Greece culture.
It was the national sport of India until the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports declared that India has no national sport in August 2012.

The first recorded use of the word "hockey" is found in the text of a royal proclamation issued by Edward III of England in 1363 banning certain types of sports and games. hockey itself is of unknown origin, although it is likely a derivative of hoquet, a Middle French word for a shepherd's stave. The curved, or "hooked" ends of the sticks used for hockey would indeed have resembled these staves.

Field hockey is the national sport of Pakistan. It was the national sport of India until the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports declared that India has no national sport in August 2012.
