Meet a dedicated Volunteer - Dr. Shankar Chatterjee

04/03/2009

Voluntarism is foundation on which the castle of One Thousand Hockey is sought to be built. We, in the Citizen Hockey Group, seek to reach volunteers through our website (othl.stick2hockey.com) to open hockey teams in schools, where the sport was not played in the recent past.

We made a significant inroad in our quest for nestling volunteers when a professional doctor contacted us for offering his services to OTHL-one of the early birds to come home to this site.

As I was introduced, I was asked to say a few words. More than a thousand children were facing me. I was quite nervous.
“Good morning t...
