Indians are not good at sports because the sports are not Indian.
.
Just like the English language, we have just recently imposed the ‘global’ sports on us. Other than a few English-medium schools and hi-fi clubs, Indians do not play tennis, squash, soccer, or badminton. Only 0.1% have access.
.
So, we play their games and lose. We speak their language and lose. We want to eat daal-bhaat with knife-and-fork and lose.
.
It is like Biharis competing for excellence in French cuisine and losing, despite having a ten-times better cuisine.
.
Just like we are killing our Indian languages to upgrade to European languages, we have already killed Indian sports.
