Flavour of the month: Indigenous Games 

Olympics Indigenous Games


Imagine a few years from now. The popularity of IPL helps spawn IKL. IKL turns out to be an even greater success, thanks to new novel set of ingredients in it compared to IPL capturing people's imagination. IKL teams will be smaller and clubs very many. Almost every town and city in India will have clubs and the multi-million dollar trophy would frequently be taken by clubs from previously unknown townships. World over as well, IKL would get so popular that it would not be uncommon to see Russians, Nigerians and Japaneses players constituting majority of a team with just few local lads. As they enter the stadium one by one, wearing nothing more than tight shorts, WWF wrestlers style, but with lean, handsome 6 pack frames and rippling masculine muscles, audience would go absolutely berserk !!Before you begin questioning the dress code, I must point out that IKL stands for International Kabaddi League - India's national sports craze for the year 2020 ! A national frency far bigger than cricket ever was!!! 

Welcome to the future of indigenous games...
