India- a loser in most of the sports apart from cricket
It is a bitter truth that one single game is blotting many others games in India. Cricket fever has overshadowed our national sport Hockey. There is no question of any debate that cricket is killing other sports in our country. Indians eat, live, sleep, talk and walk cricket. Success so far reinforces the country’s well-established status as one of the world’s best cricketing nations. The sport might not have the global appeal of, say, football but to people on the subcontinent names like MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar are as powerful as Messi or Ronaldo. Theoretically we all know that hockey is our national game but in practical vision its cricket maniac all over.
It is a dismal but true that no one remembers that in Shooting, Gagan Narang won four Gold medals in Commonwealth Games 2010, or Indian World Champion wrestler Sushil Kumar has won the gold medal in FILA 2010 World Wrestling Championships or Olympic bronze medals won by tennis star Leander Paes (Atlanta, 1996), but Anil Kumble’s 10-wicket haul, Harbhajan’s hat-trick, and Virender Sehwag’s 309 will be evergreen in memory.
Even the athlete parents don’t want their kids to pursue career in sports and this is a major setback. They want their kids only to become a doctor, engineer, accountant and not an Olympian. The reasons for this shrewd attitude towards sports are that sportspersons are not funded for their requirements and trainings, they are left at the mercy of crowdfunding, and sportspersons from other sports apart from cricket do not earn much in India. Instead of practicing for the game our players have to approach private companies to sponsor them.
Many budding players in sports like shooting, lifting, hockey etc. cannot continue their passion due to lack of governmental aid provided to them at International level which is not the case with cricket. Scarcity of stadiums, playgrounds and poor sports system in schools colleges also pull down interest of people in other sports. For example , Dipa Karmakar, only Indian gymnast to qualify in 36 years from India had to be dependent on crowdfunding for her training and tournaments.
The fund crunch in the sports sector is the major problem. Most of our sportspersons have to make use of nature’s settings to brush up their skills instead of having a well-planned stadium or court.
If this cricket mania continues, India can never do well in the Olympics or any other sports for years to come. Hence there is a great need to reform the administration, infrastructure, training and facilities given to players of other sports than cricket so that they can shine more brightly with their stunning performances. Other sports have the full right to move up the pecking order.
