Delhi and Delhi polo


Sri Arvind Singh Mewar

It is a foggy morning in Delhi today. I can barely see the outline of the passport office building from my room terrace in Hyatt.
Yesterday I was at the India International Centre (ICC) bar with a journalist friend. All of a sudden there were gusty winds scattering dust and leaves all around, spiking food and drinks of people who were sitting in the open. We too scampered indoors. After a few minutes it began to rain. The 30-minute untimely downpour caused traffic snarls and plunging the mercury. I remember, last year was cooler than this year at this time of the year.
But this year, daytime is much warmer. Blame global warming and the heated discussions in the capital on 2G, CWG, fairness in Padma Awards, price rise and the approaching budget session of the Parliament.
I spent much of my time at the IIC library in the past two days, catching up with friends and watching polo match on Sunday at the Jaipur Polo Ground located just opposite Prime Minister's Race Course residence. It was an internationl test match between India and England. The Indian team members included Major Vishal Chauhan, Major Ravi Rathore, Mr Samir Suhag and Bk Col Tarun Sirohi. The English team was represented by Mr James Carr, Mr Max Charlton, Mr Satnam Dhillon and Bk Eden Osmerod.
Though Satnam Dhillon of the England team was adjudged the best player with the highest handicap of +7 from both the teams, India won the closely fought match of five chakkar.
I said hello to General V K Singh (PVSM, AVSM, YSM, ADC), Chief of Army Staff and also the President of Indian Polo Association. Mr Singh was in Kolkata before he became the Chief of Army. Last year also I was at this Polo Club with Sri Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur royal family and a descendant of Maharana Pratap (file pictures).
