When did I listen the word ‘Sunstroke’ for the first time? Let’s me think. Unable to find the exact info, but I guess it would be around 10 years, more or less. Before that, in summer, we used to have morning classes, then summer holidays. We used to visit our village and home of other relatives in those summer holidays. Occasionally drink local version of Lassi and cold drinks. Sometimes enjoyed to drinking coconut water too. But it was not that hot, and no sunstroke.
Then we were introduced to ‘sunstroke’. We stopped going out at noon during summer. But the morning was always cool. The days in the summer used to too hot in the evening, but too cool in the morning and I never used to run the fan in the morning. But morning are not like those days. The world is now boiling.
Few days before, I saw Virender Sehwag saying something on a tv commercial. He was saying that, he was not playing this time and will join as a spectator. I thought what happened to him? Why he is saying like Sourav Ganguly said in an ad when he was out of Indian team (remember that Hoo Haa India ad?). Then I came to know that he is promoting Hockey World Cup for Hero Honda. After that Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Priyanka Chopra followed with their versions. I also said, “it’s Hero Honda ad, not Hockey ad”. I was simply wrong. While people were going to forget hockey with popularity of cricket, this promotion worked really well. And many Indian watched first match of India in Hero Honda FIH World Cup 2010, Delhi against Pakistan. And the stadium was full of supporters, were cheering Indian team by blowing whistles and saying “Chak de India”.
