Even if we have multiple films such as Chak De India to encourage and promote our highly forgotten and neglected national game, it is still important to allocate proper government and private funding to train players and persuade them to take up hockey as a career. Good marketing and setting up training institutes of international standards are necessary. We definitely need to make this sport more glamorous and incentive-based by rewarding and recognising talents.
