Bureaucratic Hurdles may kill Indian Hockey

The resignation of Terry Walsh as the Chief Coach of Indian Hockey Team, came as a big shocker for the sports lovers in the country. At a time when Indian Hockey was put in the path of revival, the bureaucracy played the spoilsport and about to kill the national sport of India. Terry, who led the team win the Asian Games gold medal aftTerry-Walsher a long gap of 16 years, was forced to quit over the payment dispute. Can we afford to let him go like this?

The 60-year-old Australian, who is also a noted Olympian, sprang a surprise by tendering his resignation in a dramatic manner. But, he exposed the system in Indian Sports, which does not have respect even for the people who bring glory to the nation. Terry minced no words to express his displeasure and said that he was finding it difficult to adjust to the decision making style of the sporting bureaucracy in India.

He further said that the sports bureaucracy is not in the best interest of Indian Hockey or Sports in particular. He helped India win a berth in Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. But, can India do any better there without a solid coach. We saw Michael Nobbs leaving. And, now Terry follows suit. These things will dent the morale of the Hockey players and have an adverse impact on their performance.

Walsh is an honest man and honest coach. He has proved his mettle beyond doubts. Many coaches come and go. But, a few of them leave an impression. Certainly, Terry Walsh is one of them. The good part is that he is still ready to consider if the issue is sorted out amicably. The Union Sports Minister has promised to sort out the issue within 24 hours. Can we expect some positive results by the evening? If so, the Indian Hockey will be saved. Or else, we will see the beginning of the end of Indian Hockey, which had seen many turbulent times in the past few years.
