Our national game hockey is given equal importance by the audience and spectators but it is all that the government and board of hockey should increase the eagerness to see hockey among Indian viewers so as to enrich hockey in the nation as far as cricket is compared. Still in punjab and haryana hockey is given more importance than cricket and they want to play for nation and funds should be provided by the government to make hockey game better in India,
Love Makes Lyf Beautiful.
Happy New Year 2011.
Good to know that in Punjab and Haryana, people still love Hockey more than Cricket. May be it is the time for all of us to realize that our National game needs more attention and more popularity.
Thanks for sharing your views. However, I won't blame the business tycoons for this. They invest heavy cricket because they know that, the investment is worth that. If people engross themselves more in Hockey for sure they will invest in Hockey too. But the huge popularity of cricket is somehow killing the other sports. Though, since last few years we have noticed a growth of other sports popularity too; thanks to the achievements in CWG and Asian games.
Hope in future, we will have a better success rate in Hockey inviting higher revenue and popularity.
