Sep 30, 2011 Rohit Mahajan

Amazing Pace

Rohit Mahajan

Top-flight hockey was played in India after very long; it was an opportunity to revive the game, but by all accounts, this possibility hasn’t been fully exploited. We must be glad, at least, that we got to see the amazing Australians display their wa

Bring The Goosebumps Back

Rohit Mahajan

At each Spanish goal, a deathly silence descended on the crowd – it was so different when the game began. As the Indian team entered the arena and burst into a warm-up spring, the crowd went mad with joy.

The Ball Between His Teeth

Rohit Mahajan
