Indian Football Dreams
Posted: June 17, 2010 Filed under: Archives
Yes, argentina won 4-1 against korea. I was watching the match now. Not a foot ball fan though, the songs “Give me freedom .. ” by k’naan and “waka waka” by shakira made me watch the beautiful sport this time. Cricket is too boring when we compare the spirit and emotions of football. The playground is always alive with the sounds of ‘Vuvuzelas’ and Fans…I really enjoy this sport.
The only thing which saddens me when i see the WC is the absence of a team INDIA,when the countries smaller than our smallest state plays very well, our country of hundred crore people fails repeatedly to enter the world cup. Why so ?Are we so lacking in spirit ? Or are we too weak to play the strong men games ? Or is it that we do not care about the game ? Whatever the reasons may be its disappointing when we are forced to be fans of another nation just because ours not in the game. If india were in the race, it would’ve got the support of millions and it would’ve boosted our energy than any other country. But how ? Whats the use of moral support if our people do not know how to play ?
Let Indian govt do a 10yr plan for the foot ball, ie in 2o2o , like dr kalam’s mission, lets all prepare to be super power in all fronts including the football. Lets be a team which could go par with argentina or brazil. We have enough time to groom our lions- 10yrs! get a good coach, and train the team. Make sports a compulsory/important subject for academics,train the students for football when they are school. Inspire the keralites who are most crazy football fans, to be not just crazy, but to work for the team. Nothing is impossible friends, even if india get one player from each state, we can make a good team… Above all Let there be a sports ministry with a minister who is a sportsperson, not a politician, our good times will start when we does this. Each ministry of india shouldn’t contain the politicians, but the experts of that field. Like a personality like sachin to be made a minister of sports, a retired army man the defence minister.
Sport is not just a joke, it represents the strength of the country. Particularly football, a nation like ours who aspires to be developed like usa and japan and france, should be able to play what they are able to. Just economic, or military might doesn’t call us developed.. Sport is not a joke, its a part of a nations growth..So lets all get our kids, our gen next who are going to live here after us love football, let them be lucky enough of shouting “GO INDIA Go” during fifa world cup finals..
Waiting for the good days to come,
it may take time i know, but sure,it’l
when the time will come,and dream come tru,
we will sing, this century belong to us..
pls give ur views on how football can be encouraged in india. If u have any say in politics or administration, pls suggest the importance of the sport. Thank you…
