Welcome home - New Heroes of Indian sports

Times are changing ... Yes, Cricket is no more the only game followed by Indian people. Surprising but true!

Today, in the wee hours, the Indian Boxing team arrived (from AIBA World Cup, Moscow) in New Delhi to a heroes welcome. Good to see this happen. The Olympics changed this I believe. How many times you have seen any boxer talking on Television before 2008? We can't even recall names of boxers who played for India before 2008. But its not the case anymore. Vijender, Akhil Kumar & Jitender Kumar are household names these days and why not ... they have made our country proud.

Its time we Indians start taking sports seriously. Times are changing and we need to go by the flow. I won't be surprised to see soccer (my favourite sport) reaching new heights in India after Maradona's visit to the country recently. I wish he had visited India a few years back though.
