To play hockey meant to live a good life

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

For­mer In­dia cap­tain

Hockey has had a great tra­di­tion in In­dia. It may not be the na­tional game of­fi­cially but it has al­ways been close to the hearts of the hockey lovers.

In Pun­jab, every fam­ily ought to have had a hockey player. I was in­spired by a rich legacy of hockey play­ers from Pun­jab. To play hockey meant to live a good life. It is a ro­bust game and I have en­joyed every mo­ment of my play­ing ca­reer.

I must doc­u­ment the huge con­tri­bu­tion of Sport­star to­wards pop­u­lar­is­ing the game and also pro­vid­ing the sup­port to play­ers. I can’t for­get the joy I had when I was fea­tured on the cover of the mag­a­zine. It was a big thing those days to get such a men­tion in the best sports mag­a­zine I have known.

I wish Sport­star the best for hav­ing com­pleted 40 years.
