I left bangladesh in 96. I remember that we used to have big time tournaments every year. Uusha (spelling) and mariners were the top teams. A nice change from the usual abahoni mohammedan crap. Lately I've lost touch with hockey. I read prothom alo and other bangla newspapers regularly through internet and they almost never mention hockey anymore. I played regularly in my mohallah and besides cricket, hockey was my 2nd favorite sport. Bangladesh was never a powerhouse when it came to this sport but it is so damn disheartening to see them to lose so badly in intl competition. My question is, what can be done to revive this sport in bangladesh.

What Gold??? World, olympic ??? If India has 12, Pakis have few I can't find enough tournaments for Aus, England and Germany to share any gold.

Are these coming from a indian gold mine???
