Zid hai to zid hai ji...

The game is hockey, the players are girls, the coach is Kabir Khan, the country is India and the mission is to win the world cup.

The Game:
Women Hockey was assumed to be “Gulli- Danda” by some people, a game in which Indian women had no future ‘coz they were “Bhartiya-Nari” who cannot wear shorts and run around in a field. Some of the members of the Indian Women Hockey Association were sure that Indian team would be out of the tournament in the first round itself.
The only constant is change and the perceptions changed finally.

The Girls:
The team for the Women’s World Cup Hockey had been decided and extra efforts were put in selecting the players. They were the best from their states. The girls used to play for their states but they learned to play for their country. They used to play as an individual but they learned to be a team. They were selfish but they learned to fight for each other. Some of them were arrogant but they learned to be modest. Some of them wanted to prove that a girl can also be famous; she can also have a career like boys have. And they proved their worth.
They defeated everyone against them.

The Coach:
He missed a goal in world cup finals in 1982. He shook hand with Pak’s captain in the right spirit and the media made his life hell. The whole nation was angry with him.People called him traitor; he had to leave his ancestral house. But he came back with a vengeance to change the history; to prove that he is not a traitor; to prove that he had been playing for India and he would keep playing for the country. He wanted to get back everything he lost 7 years back. He took the charge of Indians women hockey team. He had sixteen players and he made one team. He steered his team to the world cup victory. He changed the history. Now, people called him the greatest patriot. He was now being called the most successful coach of India.
He proved once again that if there is a will then there is a way. He proved that Impossible can be spelled as I-M-POSSIBLE.

The Country:
India, a country with 28 states and 7 union territories, a country where people speak 428 languages, a country which has the second largest population in the world, is losing the spirit to be the best. We must have a winning attitude. We must identify ourselves only as Indians. We must understand that we need “Neeyat” to win the game.
God bless India!!

Mission:
Accomplished!!!

Chak De India!!!
