When their own officials abandoned them in a foreign country, it was the local Sikh community in Adelaide that came to the rescue of the Indian junior girls’ hockey team.

 

They went Down Under to compete in a tournament but were left stranded when there was no support from the High Commission. With lack of facilities, some of them were seen crying on the road
A Sikh taxi driver saw them and got them help. The Sikh Association of Adelaide provided them with food and clothing from the local Gurudwara.
Also transportation was provided to them to the ground to play their matches and then back to wherever they needed to go.
Something definitely went wrong somewhere as the School Sports Federation of India has received Rs 2.5 lakh against each of the players from the government and yet they failed to provide any good services. This is just not done.Kudos to the Sikh Association who came to their rescue and it is a slap in the face of those who were responsible for the team’s welfare. Such a gesture shows us that humanity still exists.
