Non cricket sports : RIP

Eight archers from Naswadi, tribal region in Gujarat, wanted to attend the Archery Nationals in Guwahati, Assam, prior to the CWG Games. All eight are below the poverty line, some of them orphans, and their parents took loans on interest, broke lifelong savings and sold their only houses to raise air fare from Ahmedabad to Guwahati. At the most , it may earn someone a place in the National team. But they certainly play for regional and national pride.

In the meanwhile , shameless IPL/BCCI are spending outrageously flying everywhere, daughters of ministers are ordering charters, others lay out $370 million to buy a team, $750,000 to buy a player and Rs 1 lakh for a catch in each match. They spend officially on cheerleaders, and have official IPL parties.

Guess which news never made Page 1? And which did .

Crores are being spent under other "heads"which we will never come to know of.
India runs World cricket, but India plays dirty.
In all this and those children who are wanting only to collect Fare ,the Minister of sports must make a statement.
How long will the se politicians make us hang our heads in shame?

India is doing quite well in Archery in recent past.
Pitty that for an air ride they have to do so much.
Its not IPL or Crickets responsibility to have a look about it but if they will help it will be a good gesture.
What need to be done is that Govt. should come forward and raise funds for them.
If Cricket is at this stage then it should not be blamed,Telecast them,make sports as compulsory in Schools Curriculum as studies.
No body will join a sport which could not earn a living for them.
