Crazy Cricket & Furious Football

India has a well established sporting tradition. There are games that are a trial of strength, others are a test of imagination, skill and strategy. Modern India is as much in love with the modern games as it values the skills that are deeply rooted in history.



In India, cricket is not only a game; it is a way of life for every Indian. In Indian subcontinent this sport conjures up mixed sentiments. The success in the cricket pitch heightens national pride while defeat is followed by elaborate national mourning. In India, cricket is a religion and Sachin Tendulkar is reigning God. It will surely be an experience of lifetime to watch a cricket tournament in India. India also boasts of grand cricket stadiums like Eden Gardens that is often compared to the Lords in England. Nowhere can you find a place more perfect to experience spontaneous out burst of human emotion than in a cricket stadium.



Football is particularly popular in the states of West Bengal, Goa and Kerela. The national team of the country is composed of players that come from mainly these states. Talented footballers are also found in different parts of the country. If you want to see the craze associated with football and enjoy the passion for soccer, simply visit Calcutta and be a part of the frenzy that football generates. It is worth watching soccer matches of the traditional giants and city rivals, East Bengal and Mohan Bagan.
