A WALK THROUGH THE PAST

India Today - - LEISURE -

Bo­ria Ma­jum­dar’s A His­tory of In­dian Sport is for both sports nuts and his­tory buffs. Sam­ple this ex­cerpt: “No pol­i­tics, no caste, just cricket.” That’s from an ar­ti­cle in The Times, when the In­dian team was tour­ing Eng­land in 1932. The book is packed with mem­o­ra­bilia, from ticket stubs and news­pa­per ar­ti­cles to score­cards and tele­grams. Sachin Ten­dulkar—whose of­fi­cial au­to­bi­og­ra­phy Ma­jum­dar co-au­thored—had this to say: “We need to in­spire the young to savour our past. This should help.”
