Nothing to feel negatively. There is lot of scope for improvement in Sports and steps should be taken for development. In this area we are flop. But in Information technology we hav done excellent work.
Both USA and UK need our skilled engineers for development. We have given the best language "Samskrutham" to World. Positive sides also are many.

Absolutely nothing to say. Hockey has long ceased to be our national game. The astro -turf that is now required for the game, has made it very costly The prices of protective gears are also so high. It is a team game. It is very difficult to get many players interested in Hockey at all to form teams at lowest levels. Hockey is not in the good book of sponsors who would cough up money for even poorer football. I don't think, there should be any more wastage of money on hockey, prospect of which remains bleak because of astro turf. The same amount of money could be spent on badminton, wrestling which are bringing medals for India.

The indifference and lack of competitive spirit noticed among the youth of the country have not spared even the sports and games. An inactive and often corrupt administration encourages only mediocrity. We have to go a long way to be the No. 1 nation in the world by 2020.
