It’s not easy to be a respected sportsman other than cricket in a country where cricketers are treated like god and cricket is a religion . It’s not easy to find a job in country if you are state level champion but doesn’t have any other educational qualifications or right contacts. It’s not easy nowadays to make young guys come out of the house and play on the ground. Most of them find sitting in airconditioned room playing mobile games more interesting.
It’s also not easy to get your performance on sports field a deserving visibility in media if you are not a star player and moreover not a cricketer. All these thoughts lingered around our mind and process of creating a website which could address these issues. Started about a few years back with lot of discussions by me (Aju Deshpande ) with close friend Rajesh Deo, a creation of www.sportsnasha.com happened in month of May 2016.
Our online innings had started with a football tournament (Parle Premier League-PPL) at Vileparle Mumbai having about 70 teams and 100 matches we took a first step . www.sportsnasha.com became online media partners for young organisor Siddarth Sabapathy’s PPL . We updated scores on website of this popular league on the same day of the match and put photographs of young footballers and also took interview . Getting about 3000 plus hits on first day, our cause found unexpectedly high response from viewers. The first trial was a great success and with minimum resources at our disposal. Our team was strengthened by kabaddi captain who is also Shiv Chatrapati Award winner Mrs. Chhaya Pawar who boosted our idea.
We are now fast becoming known to sportsmen and other sports lovers. We are relentlessly helped and voluntarily assisted by badminton player Milind Purnapatre and hardworking Suhas Bengeri. Amar Godbole, Sunil Bobhate and Narayankar(web programmer) have done excellent job of new attractive and content driven website design and development.
We are happy that our website is being officially launched on auspicious day 9th October 2016 (Ashtami in Navratri) .Our website posts will mainly be having articles, interviews and photographs which are quite exclusive and we will present to you various unknown and interesting aspects of various games through our website apart from news on sports. We are sure, you will appreciate the cause and purpose with which this website is launched.
