It is sad that a country whose past sports achievements, other than a few stray victories in cricket, has always been in hockey, and has been and continues to be our national game. However, it has not been supported by the government, nor by the public and media. Poor management and administration, poor training and infrastructure, and corruption have brought the game to its nadir as far as India is concerned.

The Indian Hockey League, despite being promoted by a foreign channel (ESPN STAR Sports) has also not drawn enough attention, and has no worhthwhile sponsors.
The Government too had to be reminded to reward our hockey players; but our state govts fell over each other to felicitate our 20/20 cricket champs.

V Indians r also at some extent responsible for d bad condition of hockey. Vr encouraging only cricket n neglecting our national game. Big com. n investors r interested in investing their money in cricket only. This condition needs to be changed. It is our duty to support our national game, surely it will get its prestine glory.
