Thank You "Aaj Tak"

I hate this Hindi news channel Aaj Tak but when they exposed the Indian Hockey federation General Secy "Jyotikumar" taking bribe , then I thanked every person working for Aaj Tak. I knew we could now say, "Gill और उसके पिल्लों का पाप का घडा भर गया"
And thats what happened.
On 28th of April Indian Hockey federation was thrown away, Gill and his nonsense was asked to get lost. Some of the earlier players were made the members of an adhoc commitee which will run the Indian Hockey for the time being. We dont know how much successful this will be but we are already witnessing some changes right away.
  1. Today they have announced the team for Azlan Shah Tournament and the team looks very young. Most of the guys are from Indian - A team, they are not looking at winning this tournament but are looking at making a good team for the future. This adhoc commitee wants to see what the Indian team is doing in 2010 & 2012. So lets look at the younger players.
  2. They have got a new head coach A. K. Bansal who was the coach of Orissa Steelers. Coach Bansal has also got lots of support staff, which includes Rick Charlesworth and Joachim Carvahlo.
  3. Good thing is that they haven't thrown out the earlier coach. But the bad thing is that they have made him an Observer, now what the hell does that mean?
  4. It means that the current hockey administrators trust him for few of his qualities but don't believe in him completely. This doesn't mean that Carvahlo is bad or worse. Its just that they want him to assist the new coach.
  5. May be they want Carvahlo to help the players gain the best fitness. We did see that the players under him were leaner and fitter. Carvahlo and Bansal would work together with Bansal's brain and Carvahlo's work ethic they can build a better team. And to help them both we have the legend of Rick Charlesworth.
  6. Rick Charlesworth has been made the adviser. We dont know how much of his ideas would be taken seriously by the head coach and the observer lets wait and watch. Hopefully these three can clear this कचरा of Indian Hockey.
Few of the things Indian government has to do is "BUILD MORE THAN 100 TURF FIELDS IN THE COUNTRY." If we don't have more turf fields we might just not be able to see India playing the Champion's Trophy ever.
Another thing is that Rick Charlesworth has said which is very sad but true "India should understand that we are not the top 12 teams in the world"
Lets hope for the best for Indian hockey!!!
आमीन !!
