A History of Indian Sport Through 100 Artefacts

By Boria Majumdar

‘We needed this badly. It is a fabulous effort and people can see and read and feel inspired by the stuff their heroes have used. It brings history alive and that’s a stupendous effort.’ – Sourav Ganguly

‘Boria’s collection of artefacts is as good as any I have seen. We need to inspire the young to savour our past. This should help in doing so.’ – Sachin Tendulkar

‘Unless we get inspired, how do we get energized to excel in the future? This is one such attempt to inspire.’ – Deepa Malik.

‘The concept of history of sport doesn’t exist in this country, so this is a great effort using artefacts that have a special place in our sports history. It is important because that is how sporting journeys start.’ – Abhinav Bindra

A History of Indian Sport through 100 Artefacts brings together never-before-seen objects – scorecards, tickets, letters, telegrams, 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, India’s hockey exploits at the Olympics, the 1932 cricket tour of England, Lata Mangeshkar’s special disc in honour of the 1983 World Cup-winning Indian cricket team and more.

Contemporary history and legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Sania Mirza, Viswanathan Anand, Abhinav Bindra, 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.
