Cricket is religion in India and none of sports is as famous as cricket in India.It is popular because Indian Team is among the best in the world. If our hockey team starts to match global standards, people would automatically start following the game.
Ithink,Indian hockey is not popular among the masses because of the media. While cricket has always got the preferential treatment of first page coverage, hockey always used to get the last one. But this is changing of late. Media recently has covered major players like Saina Nehwal in Badminton, Rohan Boppana, Leander Pace in Tennis extensively. But for media attention, our hockey team need to win more matches. Instead of changing the national game, India should work to make it more popular. One step in this regard could be to take aid from BCCI. BCCI has the capacity to help the Hockey Federation and make the sport popular in India.
National game is related with the identity of the nation.The national game might not have to change if the general attitude towards the game changes. The game needs governments support to revive.
At the end of the day,games are played for fun.
