NEW DELHI (T2N2) Alarmed over embarrassing defeats in hockey and cricket, parliamentarians in India have drafted a legislation to make kabaddi the national game of the country.
Although hockey is nominally the national sport, cricket is the local craze – with the nation coming to a stop every time the Indian cricket team plays. But things have changed since India’s infamous loss to minnows Bangladesh in the cricket World Cup.
Kabaddi, a rural sport in which India are still undisputed champions, is now leading in the race to be the official sport of the country.
Closely following on its heels is the number puzzle Sudoku and India’s performance in the World Sudoku Championships at Prague might just see this sport becoming the national game.
Parliamentarians are expected to take a decision on the issue by June.(T2N2)
