ANIKET MISHRA

Tehelka - - BOOKS - MISHRA

Goal­less, the Story of a Unique Foot­balling Na­tion en­cap­su­lates the essence of In­dian football, its im­pact and the influence of com­mu­nal­ism and re­gion­al­ism. Authors Bo­ria Majumdar and Kausik Bandy­opad­hyay vividly de­scribe the na­tion­al­is­tic sen­ti­ments when Mo­hun Ba­gan won the IFA Shield in 1911, the leg­endary Kolkata ri­valry as per­ceived by the com­mon man and how the gov­ern­ing body has let the game fall into de­cline.
