Why is that most Indians only show interest in Cricket and Hockey and not in other sports? Is there a general feeling among Indians that they cannot excel in other competitive sports?

This is a very bitter truth you said Maniam PS. It is very saddening that there are so many traditional sports in India which are LOST in darkness.

Can anyone tell me how to preserve this traditional sports culture in the midst of globalization in sports?
