all the other members of Hockey India and the SAI, has the look and air of a wayside thief !

And it is such thieves who appear to be more important in the Indian way of things than winning medals in international tournaments!

Such thieves are sustained only because there is immense tolerance to corruption among common folk in India.

Reminds one of what Khushwant Singh said some time back :

Indian commoners are among the stupxidest in the world; they re-elect thieves!

The team recently performed well and won a series against Aus in Aus, after winning the gold in Asian Games. The board should consider the recent results and arrive at a reasonable solution for betterment of hockey.

We cannot stick to the old methods and expect new outcomes. Changes have to be made for betterment, even if it hurts the system initially.

Pay is one factor. Having said it, its long term planning with them not short term gains. Our guys are satisfied with short term gains and rest on the Glory of what we have achieved. They are not of that kind...

The question may need to be asked in reverse. Foreign coaches enjoy a lot of autonomy in their own countries. Olympic sports in India are subject to bureaucratic control, which limits their freedom in decision-making. This may not be happening in cricket since BCCI is a law unto itself; government has no role to play.

Few things that affect the Western Coaches are 1)Our System is full of politicking, bootlicking officials. 2) They are brutally straight forward that doesn't work with us. Unfortunately our folks are not prone to digest reality they want someone who sucks up to them, and these Western Coaches don't. 3) They mean Business, our folks want artificiality and fakeness which they can't and won't. Hence its EXIT...DON'T WANT...

Regarding point number 2... the problem is that just like people and bureaucrats in the system, many players have also grown up with the same mentality of 'all's OK' (chalta hai), and a great number of them start playing at a much later age. Talent needs to be tapped at a much younger age so that importance of even small details should be inculcated along with training.
