Indians Finished 6th in a pool of 6 Teams

We lost 6-1 to Holland in the final league match in world cup hockey. With this, India did the worst performance in the world cup ever. Losing all its matches and drawing one match against the minows South Africa.

Saaauttttttthhh Africaaaaaaaa??? We drew with South Africa?? They play rugby not field hockey. We are hockey world leaders. How can we draw with them??? My dad would curse everyone in nthe team and the coach and the IHF mother fucking chief KPS Gill. Well dad we were never a great team in modern hockey.

Ok we won 8 olympics golds so what??? We didnt win anything once the modern hockey started. We didnt win a single champion's trophy, neither the world cup. So there is so problem with the way we play our hockey. Simple. I can see that.

This is how we can make India win the champion's trophy. Just shut up and listen KP S Gill. Start hockey league. Not PHL its a joke. Have 3 leagues, like league 1, league 2, league 3. Every league has 10 teams. Develop clubs and small stadiums with 1000 seating capacity for the teams with the help of corporates. Start the league after diwali and end it in March. Its not very hot in India during that period and cricket is played during that period. If you want to popularise the game play it during the cricket season and compete with it.

The teams must travel to the club like in European Leagues. Away game and home game. Involve some airlines in this. The airlines might not need to spend a penny on advertising. Hockey is still popular enough a sport that people can follow it.

Today we do have some existing clubs and teams. Air India has a great team, so ask Air India to make a turf for the team. Air India is fucking rich enough to have three teams. Show the players some money. Say that the prize is 10 Crores for league 1, League 2 it can be 7.5 crores and league 3 it can be 5 crores. Clubs of football like East Bengal and Mohun Bagan also have hockey teams today, they also can set up turfs for the club if they need to participate in the tournament. The clubs can sell the merchandise and all that. Small tournaments can happen round the year. Popularise the game. Bring money into it. Once the money comes in you can have more foreign players coming in. More exposure to Indian players. Clubs can have a free hand which player to buy and which player to sell, who is the coach. Come on Gill do something. Since the day you have been the Indian Hockey Chief we havent won a single tournament at world level. Our best performance in Champion's trophy has been 3rd in 1983. If you cant do anything for the show you are running you need not run the show. Believe me I can do a better job.

Today every Indian player should be motivated to play rather than just stay on the field. One of the former Indian captains, Ashok Kumar, said, "It just did not appear as if the team had gone there to play seriously. We were let down because of a lack of proper game plan and uncertainty in the team." When we go in the field we dont have proper game plans because there is no one in India who has played on truf since childhood. But we have great coaches across the globe who can help us. Believe me Indian very never good in modern hockey.

We should first stop blowing trumpets of 8 olympics golds because non were won in the modern era. (ok 1980 gold was in modern era but there were teams like Cuba, Nigeria, etc etc) The game has taken a 180 degree turn.

We should look towards hockey as a country which is trying to learn and not like arrogant bastards. Yes we still have a great pool of great players but were are no where compared to the great three, Australia, Germany and Netherlands. We should first get a decent coach and then, try to win Champions trophy in next 3 years. If we can achieve that then we are on the right track. And please Mr Gill give some meat to the players, they look like they are not fed. Feed the poor players. Give them someone who can say, "this is nutritious diet, dont eat this, eat this, etc etc"

Inter IIT is being held in IIT Guwahati this year and no one knows the status of the hockey field there. If the university games are not taken seriously, we can never play hockey seriously either.

Jai Raam Ji KI...

We Need a Draw


India starts its campaign for the Hockey Worldcup today. First Match is with Germany at 7.00 PM today. they are shwoing it live on TEN SPORTS.

India have a very good team but they are without their ace penalty corner specialist Sandeep Singh. We still are good though.

Germany has ben doing good lately but we have defeated them in recent history. If India is able to draw with Germany and Netherlands we are through to the Semifinals. We need to atleast draw with Germany today. Come On guys.

2006-09-06. 15:30 (German Time) versus Germany
2006-09-07. 14:00 (German Time) versus England
2006-09-09. 13:00 (German Time) versus South Africa
2006-09-11. 13:00 (German Time) versus Korea
2006-09-11. 13:00 (German Time) versus Netherlands

We can defeat England, South Africa and Korea pretty easily. We need to concentrate for the first 15 minutues really hard and then Germans will buckle under pressure. We have great defence and mid field. Please Mr. Gaganajit dont miss chances this time. Just get into the "D BOX" and hit. rest all is taken care. Lot depends on today's game. Come On India.


Indians Training in the Stadium

Bismillah-E-Rehman-E-Rahim, Baba Nanak Sukh Raakha, etc etc are there. Just score goals.

Today's match is a difficult one, but if we can draw this match, then it is downhill till the match against Netherlands. And may be we can peek till we play our match against the Dutch.

All the best guys!!! Chak Do Fatte!!!!!

Best Photo

I went for a break on Thursday while in office and there is some huge construction work going on. I saw these pipes there and clicked a photo. Looks great. Clarity is less because it is just 1.3 mega pixel camera on my phone.



Dont know what to name the photo. Photo looks awesome though.

This is the best photo ever taken by my camera phone. Awesome hai yaaar. Its just pipes but if you try to look dhyaan se there is some light at the end of the pipe. Mast photo yaar. :-)

Arre Dewano Mujhe Pehchano... Main Hoon Don...

DON is coming. Watch the promo here.



Everything looks so cool. Like ekdum stud types. I think Farhan Akhtar can make people act. He made the career of Saif work and now he wil make the stammering SRK act for a change.

Way to go Farhan. Music's been released in India and few sites from Pakistan have already given you the opportunity to download this album for free. Click here for download.
