Indelible India
Despite not been able to make it to the FIFA World Cup yet, India is a soccer-crazy nation and takes a keen interest in international football. In fact, in states like West Bengal, Goa and Mizoram, football is almost a way of life!
 
Justifiably, when the curtains lift on the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar next month, millions of Indians, glued to the TV at odd hours, will sigh over the absence of their team.
 
Against this backdrop, our cover story will dispel the gloom and make every Indian proud. For, one of the eight stadiums in Qatar where the FIFA World Cup will be played has been constructed by Larsen & Toubro – a cent percent Indian multinational!
 
The stadium built by L&T is a masterpiece – from the perspective of both sports and architecture. As the world’s top teams take to the field, every Indian can proudly say that the stadium has a distinct Indian stamp!
 
Closer home, there’s another piece of good news! India is hosting the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup from 11-30 October. Those in Bhubaneswar, Goa and Mumbai will get the one-off opportunity to cheer this world-class tournament in person as a precursor to the FIFA World Cup.
 
This celebration of football only adds to the ongoing festive season across India!
 
Signing off on this joyous note. Happy reading!
