Chuck De India



The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) suspended the national hockey federation on Monday after a television show accused the federation's secretary of corruption. The IOA's executive council made its move after the nation was rocked by a show which last week alleged that hockey secretary K.Jothikumaran had accepted money from undercover reporters to select a particular player. The hockey federation was already under fire after the men's team, eight-time former gold medallists, were eliminated from the 2008 competition in Beijing, marking the first time they will miss the Olympics since sending the first team in 1928. - Reuters, 28 April 2008

Hi,
It is high time we changed our national sport from hockey.
No, I am not suggesting any alternative including cricket. Considering our we-dont-care-for-sports attitude, probably as a country we should just not have a national sport.
Cheers,
Salil
