Sangam Hockey

I had great fun being part of the Vikram Birthday surprise. Didnt know what to write as Sayesha had written everything. You can read the story at Sayeshaz, ROS's and Vikramz. I am feeling awesome. :-) Happy Birthday Vikram. Cheers Mate.
The Post Starts here:
As part of the annual tradition at IIT Madras "The Six Players a Side Hockey Tournament" was played from 29th to 31st of March. Its played on a small ground called Sangam ground behind Godavari Hostel and near Saraswati Hostel.
Basically it is inter hoster tournament and there can be any number of teams from any hostel. Most of the matches are held from evenings 6 PM to night 2 AM. Its major fun with people cursing in as many ways as they can. From Curses in Golt to curse in Punjabi you can hear anything to everything. The freshies find this major interesting as they bring out the frustration of "Why did I come to IIT Madras" on the umpires and the players. (By the way everyone has that feeling in first year. Maacha, I don't like this college ra. I guess MIT was better. MIT = Mujaffarpur Institute of Technolgy)

This time the ground was bad and lighting was worse. During our time there used to be grass and the road rollers used to roll the ground for few days before the tournament. And it was held in the odd semester. So if you organise it in odd semester you can find the new players and the coach can train them for Inter IIT, which is held during the winter vacation.

Most of the times when I played, Jamuna used to be really well. And everytime we found Jamuna against us in the semifinals and bloody dogs used to kick our ass. So just for the heck of it I was anti Jamuna.

The four teams in the semis were Ganga, Saras, Jamuna and Alakh. And finals were held today at 5 PM. It was great to see the respect for the coach as the senior players presented him a hockey stick. Really cool guys!!!


Jamuna won the tournament on penalties. Bad luck Ganga. But believe me Ganga were a better team. Click here for all the photos.

All the credit for the win goes to the Jamuna Keeper - Bala. He got injured took some spray came back and saved few penalties and gave victory to Jamuna.

Three cheers for Jamnua Hip Hip Hurray.

Loved the background commentary in the videos. "Good One man", and then one more phrase that I will not mention ( but it was in the first video).

When I heard it, i went khi khi khi...
