    Shahabad’s Sikh girl leads Indian sticks to glory

    [​IMG]

    SHAHBAD: The Sikh captain of the Indian Hockey team, ace striker Surinder Kaur, is blazing a path of glory. After the dismal performance of the Indian men’s hockey team in the Asia Cup, followed by the juniors coming in ninth in the recent World Cup, Surinder kaur’s leadership brought cheer back to the Indian hockey fraternity last Saturday when the girls won the Champions Challenge II tournament in Kazan, Russia.


    The team got the better of Belgium 6-3 in the final. Hailing from Shahbad Markanda, a small town on the Chandigarh-Delhi highway, Surinder is in great company of four other girls from the same town. Surinder, 27, not only scripted the victory for
    India, but was also adjudged Player of the Tournament. She had taken charge of the national team last year. Surinder Kaur’s story is a story of struggle, grit and hardwork. Becoming stars of the Kazan victory was certainly not a smooth ride.

    Surinder’s father once worked as a daily-wager on others’ farms and even buying a quality hockey stick was a challenge. Her success in the game has, however, changed the fortunes of the family. Today, her father farms his own land. There’s a new house too, besides a tidy sum in the bank. The Sikh community hails the spirit of the talented girl.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
