This article on "Cricket Vs Other Games in India ” will boost your confidence to be successful in Essay Writting Test:
 
It’s bitter but very true that one single game blotting many others games in India. Cricket fever overshadowed our national sport Hockey. There is no question of any debate that cricket is killing other sports in our country. Indians eat, live, sleep, talk and walk cricket. Theoretically we all know that hockey is our national game but in practical vision its cricket maniac all over. 
 
No one remembers that in Shooting, Gagan Narang won four Gold medals in Common Wealth Games2010, or  Indian World Champion wrestler Sushil kumar has won the gold medal in FILA 2010 World Wrestling Championships or Olympic bronze medals won by tennis star Leander Paes (Atlanta, 1996), but  Anil Kumble's 10-wicket haul, Harbhajan's hat-trick, and Virender Sehwag's 309 will be evergreen in memory.
 
Its a common sight that young children are playing perfect cricket with bat and ball in lanes, streets, gardens. But people don’t know how to play other sports or what are the rules for other games? A budding sports kid who is almost as tall as the bat he holds claims that some day he would be like "Tendulkar". Why not like "Ajit pal signh" or “Dhayan chand"? Answer is very simple that they don’t know about these heroes. We cannot play here any blame game because it’s our society who is responsible for this situation. 
 
Cricket in India is becoming an obstacle in the progress of other sports. Television, com
mercialization and the advertising world have promoted cricket to an extent that it has become a Mount Everest, which is badly affecting other sports in the country. An equal exposure is not given to all sports in the country. New comers in cricket sport get name & fame in a short span. But its not happen with other sports players.
 
Many budding players in sports like shooting, lifting, hockey etc. cannot continue their passion due to lack of governmental aid provided to them at International level which is not the case with cricket. Scarcity of stadiums, playgrounds and poor sports system in schools colleges also pull down interest of people in other sports.
 
Huge crowd pack the cricket stadium when there is a India-Pakistan match, to boost the morale of their country but where does this “morale boosting brigade” disappear when sportsmen of other than cricketers need them.
 
We do have Sania Mirza,  Leander Paes and  Mahesh Bhupati bringing laurels to the country in the field of tennis; a Vishwanathan Anand in the field of chess. In hockey we have great legends like Balbir singh, Pargat Singh, Surjit Singh, Ashok Kumar, Ajit Pal Singh, who conquered hockey cup in 1975.They all play hard to bring pride and glory to our country just as cricketers.  It was a time when hockey commentary delivered by commentator Jasdev Singh holds the breath of nations’ listeners. That sensational wave sound has now vanished from radio sets and stadiums. Other games like chess, tennis, and hockey are craving for true status as cricket game. 
 
Cricket is not our national game, but it is celebrated as a festival. It has been used as a bridge between two nations. Our country’s politics also get active with these sports. Players of international fame and caliber in other sports are not given the proper media support and attention as well as proper facilities for further development. Media hype and money involvement in cricket game are the main culprits for cricket ruling the roost, to the detriment of other sports in India.
 
Paradoxically our country is still struggling hard to form a good football team. Day by bay Indian football is losing the little charm it had gained. Recently JCT club has decided to disband and fold off its team. It was not very shocking news as even Mahindra United decided to discontinue its football team last year. Same happens with our national game hockey. There was a time when India did win the Hockey World Cup in 1975 and people showed a keen interest in the sport, but not so anymore. The sport has died a natural death from lack of leadership and sponsorship.
 
If this cricket mania continues, India can never do well in the Olympics for years to come. Hence there is a great need to reform the administration, infrastructure, training and facilities given to players of other sports than cricket so that they can   shine more brightly with their stunning performances. Other sports have the full right to move up the pecking order.
