WILL THE PHOENIX OF HOCKEY RISE?


Nowadays, hockey world cup is being going on.I find the performance of INDIA not that bad as it would have been.What would have been for supposed for a country which is only playing world cup because they are the host nations.It means INDIA was not fit even to qualify for playing in the world cup.
I often think that for a country like India, where hockey is our national game, how this type of 3rd class performance is possible.But when i think about it,it seems that the condition can even be more critical.
I feel really ashamed of myself, that being an Indian in my school or anywhere else.I haven't played hockey in my entire life.This case is not only mine.But of millions of other indians who have not played hockey in their entire life. Then a question arise why??.Why india has such a condition in hockey. I find only answer to this problem is that hockey has been finished from ground level. If a child will not play it from his childhood.then,how a talent can be recognized.So, it's clear that if a handful of people in india will play hockey .Then, world class players who can perform in international matches will not be produced. This all thing is possible only in india ,who is Six times Gold medalist in hockey and produced the legends like Dhyan chand.
The condition of India in International hockey is owned only by the federation of hockey, which is simply doing nothing from decades and letting hockey from india fall and fall. India is not having many astro turf grounds on which the international hockey is played.Now also in india 90% grounds are grass ones. So,if a player is doing practice in grass.then,how he can perform directly in international matches.
India has produced some marvelous players like Roop chand,Mohd. shahid,Dhanraj pillay and many more who have made india proud in various occasions.So, it is also not the case that india don't have good players.But,they can perform only when the country supports them.India has a heart which resides i hockey,only there is a need to create a buzz that the upcoming generation may not think that hockey is dead in india.
One more thing which i noticed that 2 days before india and pakistan match, there was no news about hockey world cup,which is the most prestigious award championship in hockey.It shows that how irresponsible our indian mediai is because if Dhoni buys a new dog,then that's a breaking news.But World cup hockey is even not in headlines.
The 3rd grade players of indian cricket team like Ravindra jadeja, virat kohli, etc. are popular "n" number of times than present time india's best players Prabhojot singh and Deepak thakur.
It's my request to all of you ,please support hockey.Not because our condition in hockey is critical,where we had even not qualified for 2008 beijing olympics( which happened after 60 years) and even not because we are 12th in the world ( believe me it will continue to fall untill phoenix of hockey do not rise).But because, it is our National game.Otherwise,hockey has to removed from our national game.
Please wake up,that this situation may not rise that we have to say
"HOCKEY IS OUR NATIONAL GAME & I FEEL ASHAMED TO CALL AN INDIAN".

Allahabad - Exploring the Land of three Rivers

The land of Prayag or Allahabad where Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati meets was always a special place for Hindus. They continue to come here from different parts of Globe to take a holy dip in Ganga and ask forgiveness for their Sins in life and free them from the cycle of rebirth.

Once called the Oxford of the East, Allahabad has lost its glory in this Modern world. It was once the capital of United Province, now called Uttar Pradesh at the time of Britishers. From Asoka to Akbar, the City was a center of Statesmanship, art and culture. The time has gone and so is its glory, but it has protected its heritages and past to get vanished in current time.
I visited Allahabad a few days back and found there are many places of my Interest. They can be a mythological place or a Modern architecture. The City has seen it all. I am listing out a few of my experiences and will welcome if you want to add anything in the list:--
1)Take a holy dip in Sangam

A Temple like never before - Bullet Temple

India is a land of diversity, home to many great religions of the world. This diversity has made people believe and worship different kinds of deities. They vary from trees to rivers and snakes to cows. However a small village in Pali district of Rajasthan has the distinction one of the rarest and weirdest temples ever known or seen.
 Having heard a lot from fellow travelers visiting the famous Om Banna temple aka Bullet temple was indeed a must for me. On Pali – Jodhpur highway in a small village called Chotila lies a temple of Royal Enfield 350 cc Bullet Motorcycle.
I crossed the mountains of Aravali region in Rajsamand and reached the jodhpur highway. The Sun has gone down the horizon when I reached the temple. The temple is situated just on the highway. While I was boarding off the bus, the conductor gave me a twenty rupees note and asked me to give it inside the temple.

The temple or shrine whatever you may call it is an open space where Royal Enfield bike is kept inside a glass box…

Ultimate guide of Eating Out in Pune

I am born and brought up in North India but am living in Pune for last four years. This is the place I call home. I love eating out and on various occasions people keep asking me about my favorite eating places in Pune or where they can find Best Punjabi or best Biryani in town. So I thought let’s make a list of my favorite places to eat in Pune so that it can be a reference to someone searing for some good food options.
Before starting my list, I am making few confessions to help you understand how I made the list.
Let me clear you that it totally depends on my taste. People taste differs and it can happen that you don’t like a place where I love to eat.It’s also not correct to say that I have eaten at all places in Pune and then I am making a list out of that.I am not a fan in eating at those five star restaurants and only visit them when it is sponsored by someone else.I will not include any chain restaurants or places which I think is not Puneri.I am a teetotaler and don’t eat Bac…

When you talk to a Mumbaikar about Mohammad Ali Road who some says is the toughest Competitor of Chandani Chowk (Delhi) in terms of foodies delight. People from all over the country come to Mohammad Ali road to treat their taste buds to deliciously unusual non-vegetarian delights. It has Crawford market on one end and famous Minara Masjid at other. It is surrounded by area called Bhendi Bazaar and Bohri Mohalla.
When you walk down the narrow lanes of the adjoining areas Bhendi bazaar or Bohri mohalla, there are these small shops selling most awesome Non-Vegetarian foods from the time of Britishers.

You can walk towards famous Chor Bazaar from Bhendi bazaar and if you are lucky you can find some antique and vintage items.

Te Amo - Daman

As my friends in India were supporting Portugal in FIFA World cup 2014, I traveled to India’s strongest connection to Portugal, Daman. This small Union territory borders with Gujarat and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. It turned out to be same as I had expected. The place is quite similar to its counterpart Goa, which was also a Portuguese colony but has a lot of unexplored places than Goa. It’s laid back beaches, Portuguese architecture buildings and awesome sea food has forced me to love the place. So, if you are planning to travel this small town, here are 5 things you should do here:
1) Take a walk in Moti Daman.

Moti Daman is the old city of Daman situated around Moti Daman  Fort. The place has numerous Portuguese style buildings. These grand buildings which was once ruled by Portuguese is now been converted to Indian government offices. You can’t find people speaking Portuguese on road in any other part of Country but in Daman. The atmosphere has charm of its own and you can’t afford to m…
