Kolkata, March 19, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Remember that old Doordarshan tune? Long before today’s LCD, Plasma, or 3D TVs? The nail biting – adrenalin rushing – black and white East Bengal-Mohan Bagan matches, the eternal ‘Ghati’ and ‘Bangal’ debate over football. And at midnight it was time for European Club football matches. In fact we, Bengalis started to like the Club Football more than World Cup matches. The Clubs had the clusters of stars at that time; the ground was their own, so it had a huge fan following, the atmosphere became electrifying at those times, at times the news papers had headlines like the match of the century is today.

Days passed, now people had colour television and cable line, the door to world football opened before Bengalis. It was not only Club football; it was a unique chance to watch the galaxy of stars together, an intoxicating advantage for a football crazed race.
