A step motherly treatment

Read the above link. It was a shoddy treatment that awaited the Indian Hockey players after winning the Asian Champions trophy against Pakistan 4-2 in a penalty shoot out. To make matters worse, they were given only a prize amount of a meagre Rs. 25000. Reading the above writeup as to how Yuvraj Walmiki, the hero who scored the goal lives in apathetic conditions in Mumbai is really heart wrenching. Makes you realize how much is taken for granted.

Wish this country would give more respect to their national sport. While huge amount of money is flittered away in the glitz and glamour of Cricket, Hockey deserves a bit more attention.
