To Hell With Cricket !!!

There is this awards thing in sports, which happens in India every year for best performing sportsmen and sportswomen. And suddenly I realized Cricket is not the only sport we play. Great to see that Cricket for a change has taken a back seat or rather I should say other sports are getting recognition.

I feel olympics is the the the most important than anything on the earth when it comes to sports. Can someone tell me why do we play sports like Billiards, Snooker, Cricket, Chess, Kabaddi, Golf, etc etc which are not recognized by the world??? The Chinese have mastered the art of which sport they should participate. They win bloody medals like anything in gymnastics and swimming and long distance athletics. Advani is going great guns in Billiards but does someone recognize the sport in Brazil or Korea??? Its just for people above 90 years.

Come on Government of India invest in a sport where you can say, "We are masters of this sport!!!" One name missing from this list of sportsmen is Adrian D'Souza, Indian hockey goalie.

List of awardees (taken from Hindustan Times):

Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award

Pankaj Advani - Billiards & Snooker

Arjuna Award

Tarundeep Rai - Archery
Dola Banerjee - Archery
Manjit Kaur - Athletics
Aparna Popat - Badminton
Anuja Prakash Thakur - Billiards & Snooker
Akhil Kumar - Boxing
Surya Shekhar Ganguly - Chess
Anju Jain - Cricket
Viren Rasquinha - Hockey
Ramesh Kumar - Kabaddi
Gagan Narang - Shooting
Shikha Tandon - Swimming
Soumyadeep Roy - Table Tennis
Sushil Kumar - Wrestling

All thanks to Kung-Fu which these guys learn from the holy land of Shaolin-China :D

We need to come out with something similar....I mean, something similar to Kung-fu....THE DESI KUNG-FU

Maybe afta that we'll be more focused into winning medals
