Why is India such a worst country in sports, except cricket?

In my latest blog post, I delve into the reasons behind India's underwhelming performance in sports, with the exception of cricket. The country's overwhelming focus on this particular sport often overshadows other disciplines. Additionally, inadequate infrastructure and insufficient funding for sports other than cricket contribute to this disparity. Furthermore, the lack of a sports culture and societal pressure to prioritize academics over athletics hinder the growth of sports in India. Ultimately, we must reevaluate our approach and invest in nurturing a well-rounded sports environment.
