A History of Indian Sport Through 100 Artefacts

Boria Majumdar (Author)

A History of Indian Sport through 100 Artefacts brings together never-before-seen objects – tickets, scorecards, telegrams, letters, newspaper reports – and facts from the annals of Indian sporting history. There is a wealth of tales and nuggets within these pages: the Mohun Bagan team defeating the East Yorkshire Regiment in 1911 to lift the IFA Shield, Ranji’s love poems for Mary Holmes, the 1932 cricket tour of England, India’s hockey exploits at the Olympics, Lata Mangeshkar’s special record in honour of the 1983 World Cup-winning Indian cricket team, and more. Contemporary history and legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Abhinav Bindra, Sania Mirza, Viswanathan Anand and the exploits at the Paralympics 2016 too claim their space in this fascinating archive. Profusely illustrated and beautifully designed, this is a collector’s edition that no sports lover can resist.
