Media has the tendency to blow things out of proportion and make a mountain of a mole hill. Sad but true, cricket has become more of a religion for Indians. India is a cricket crazy nation. Fanatics eulogize their favourite players to the pedestal akin to God. As a result, other sports like hockey, football, rugby are not given the necessary platform to develop a better sports culture. It is a high time that we give the due credit to other sports and a chance for unsung talented heroes to showcase their abilities.
