    Chak De India to greet Indian women's hockey team

    Durban (PTI): Chak De India, the movie that revolutionised hockey in India, will be specially screened here on Saturday to welcome the Indian National womens team that will participate in a four-nation tournament here from June 2-6.

    The screening is being organised by the Indian Consul General here Harsh Varshan Shringla.

    Mr. Shringla said the movie was inspired by the success of Indian women's team at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, the 2003 Afro-Asian Games and the 2004 Asia Cup.

    "The movie not only moved hockey back into the popular consciousness of Indians but also made a strong statement about the determination and will of Indian women to succeed on an equal footing as men," said Mr. Shringla.

    Apart from India, hosts South Africa, Australia, and Argentina are the other teams in the four-nation event.

    India will play their first match against Australia on June 2, followed by match against South Africa the next day and Argentina on June 5.

    The semi-finals and finals of the tournament will be played on June 6.
