A part of the tweet says, "We are proud to announce that major cities across India will unite in honour of our nation's greatest day in sporting history. It was this game that gave the nation its first Olympic gold medal. Hockey in India has not just been a sport, but also a bloodline of which our ancestors have grown up and thrived upon.”
