For decades, India has been a country fascinated by one sport alone – cricket. Nothing brings Indians together like cricket. The past few years, however, have seen the emergence of a genuine interest in other sports as well. This becomes evident with the kind of attention India’s Asian Games performance has garnered. India has bagged 71 medals at the Asiad games up until Wednesday, October 4. This is India’s best performance at the Asian Games ever.
