Discrimination between cricketers and medal winners in Asian games

INDIA IN ASIAN GAMES

By MADHU AGRAWAL

Medals won by most Indians in Asian games are mostly by youngsters coming from extremely poor families, and they will be soon forgotten by governments and people of this country like a five-year old child Budhia who created record in 55-kms race. Budhi is presently in poor health of malnutrition.

More recently Harish Kumar, member of Indian sepaktakraw team that won bronze medal at the Asian Games 2018, sells tea at his father’s shop to support his family. 

On the other side, central and state governments shower huge amount of money in tunes of crores of rupees to cricketers which is apart from hefty annual salaries of upto rupees seven crores per cricketer and life-time heavy pension after their retirement from cricket paid by BCCI. Even people of India are responsible for such inequality when they prefer talking and watching only cricket resulting India losing its world-championship in Hockey, and nowhere visible in most favourite game of the world namely Football.

It is absolutely unfair to create such a class-distinction in society where cricketers earning otherwise also through their costly appearance in advertisements are paid so heavy from public-fund of richest cricket-body of the world BCCI funded through public-craze where cricket has become religion for people. If earning of BCCI is criterion for payment to cricketers, then priests of famous temples can also demand such hefty payments based on income of temples.

Central government should ensure that BCCI funds may be utilized for public-welfare schemes in the manner income from famous Hindu temples like Tirupati are spent, rather than creating a super-rich category of persons in a country with so much poverty and unemployment.
