force to reckon
by nishant sinha on May 10, 2009 01:33 PM

Soon India will be a force to reckon in the world of sports as we see new stars like talukdar surprising the world, but its sad that most of us are unaware of such stars before they do something big at the international level.I hope all the other sports get equal amount of attention and sponsors.

Dear Santosh,

never mind. It is a personal question. What other sport do you play passionately? I doubt whether you even play cricket regularly. For we Indians, the best job is to play the blame game.

Have you seen any other game other than IPL?
Have you seen India qualifying to the asian cup football 2011?
Have you seen India winning at SAS Hokey tournament?

or simply have you been following the the world cup archery or this news came as a piece of bolt from sky.

Indians always assume that the burden be taken care by others. And in this case the burden is to promote other sports. Better play one another game on a regular basis. Job done.

Sasank, what kind of encouragement do the non cricket sportspersons get in our country?

Win or lose, the cricketers are venerated and vie with film stars for publicity.

What is the status of other sports? A few years ago, our junior team won the world volleyball title beating strong contenders. Was there any happy homecoming for them? Apart from a few lines tucked away in an obscure corner, even our media ignored this event.

Unlike cricket, all other sportspersons win on their own inspite of the official apathy and indifference of the people at large and the media. Their victory should rank higher than any victory in cricket.

No wonder we never excel in any Olympic sport and celebrate wildly the odd medal that comes our way like those of Rathore and Bhindra

gadha kahin ka...as if one fool was not enuf...one stupid sudeshkumar praises another stupid sasank...and i m not criticising sasank for the above comments but for his earlier comments when one person had said he is proud of jayanta talukdar ...and this idiotic and pseudo intellectual sasank asks him why that person needs to be proud of jayanta talukdar...gadha sasank , its a natural reaction when ppl do something commendable and others say thay are proud of them, you dimwit ...have some sense before trying to exhibit your nonsensical thoughts...yes, we are not saying that cricket shuld be banned or anything like that , but it's a fact that due to the extra importance given to cricket , the other olympic sports where we do have talent end up getting neglected..and when somebody points out this fact, be sporting enuf to accept it and if you want to give suggestions and your own opinions , atleast learn to do so gracefully ...

Dear Sasank,

It is a fact that sports other than cricket are languishing for want of encouragement from the Government and private parties.

When India wins a major tournament in Cricket, even the Parliament goes ga-ga. What about other sports? Even if you happen to win a world title in other sports, it hardly merits a glance even from the media.

Let us not be cynical and not forget the fact that there are other sports than cricket that are being played. If we don't do too well, then it may be that there is not enough motivation.

If the Soviets and the Chinese can do it, so can we. It only requires some determined and systematic action on the ground.

Why you need to be proud of him. Be proud of yourself first. Rather than commenting on a chep-type opportunistic way, it is better to do little thing. Go and play something. Even ludo will do.

Jayanta, who hails from the state of Assam, was born in 1987. He was spotted at a very young age by archery coaches of Guwahati. His talent was further nurtured at the Tata Archery Academy in Jamshedpur. He became a part of the Indian Archery history in 2004 when he became the top scorer of the silver medal winning Indian team at the Junior World Championship in Britain. It was the first Indian team to win a medal in any archery world championship.

Would you be knowing how Jayanta fared at the Beijing Olympics? I am presuming he was there, but obviously he couldn't reproduce his best form there. However, am curious how far he went since I dont recall reading about him at the Olympics.

Do u know how many shots a competitor has in each 'end'?
