I always have this thought running in my mind, why is our government train our rowers, cyclists and hammer throwers by keeping them in air conditioned room and hydraulic training to send them to the Olympics and Asiad. There are so many fishermen who can row better than the rowers and swing the hammer as they use to throw the net which is lot heavier than the hammer. If we can give a kind of a stipend to them and train them surely we can give a great competition in the international sports.
During this semester holidays I was called by my friend to play cricket in the beach and the other in a corporation ground. When I went there I just witnessed something great. The ground and the beach were full youngsters with bat and ball. They just don bother about anything but only about playing cricket. They are not professional, they dont have the proper skill to exhibit but they have the interest to play the game. These people should be viewed seriously by the board of cricket in India and they should be given some opportunity to play professional cricket if they possess talent.
