Editor's Note 

 

2001, which began with the earthquake in Gujarat and ended with the terrorist attack on the Indian Parliament, was not exactly the most memorable year of our lives. We lost the cultural twin towers in Afghanistan - the two Buddhas, tall and standing high as a reminder of Afghanistan's rich secular past; we lost the Royal family of Nepal; we lost the financial twin towers in New York. Amidst all these losses and political posturing, the South Asian youngsters - under 19s - were hard at work - on cricket grounds, hockey fields and squash courts - victorious and dedicated, apolitical and focused. The Scottish Junior Squash Open  in December 2001 turned into a South Asian event - winners in all age categories were south Asians - three from Pakistan and one from India. The Indian Hockey Juniors won the Junior World Cup and presently the under 19s from south Asian countries are in New Zealand - playing cricket  - far removed from the small-minded politics back home. If these youngsters are the South Asian future - then future is certainly hopeful and positive.

Our accolades and cheers for the South Asian Under 19s!
