Prakash Padukone will be remembered as a pioneer in Indian sport. At a time when few in the country thought of sport as a career, Padukone broke new ground. Not content with becoming the best in the country, he embarked on a journey of excellence—a journey that took him to the summit of many tournaments across the world. The best-remembered of these is the All England title that he won in 1980 which so decisively changed the history of Indian sport.But the All England wasn’t the only title he won—his conquests included the World Cup in 1981, the Swedish and Danish Opens in 1980,the Commonwealth Games gold medal in 1978,the Hong Kong Open in 1982. These were apart from medals won at the Asian Games, World Championships and Asian Championships. After his All England win in 1980, he went to Denmark to play for a club, Hidovre. During those six years, Prakash was among the elite of the badminton world, playing tournaments in Asia and Europe, winning some, and mostly reaching the semifinals or finals. Since he was based in Europe, his fans in India could only get brief reports of his accomplishments, and that is why our knowledge of his exploits is so limited. This book attempts to chronicle the most important aspects of his life and career which are remembered by only his most ardent fans. But Padukone’s contributions cannot just be measured in terms of medals or titles won. His victories gladdened the hearts of Indians at a time when it had few world-class professionals in any field; his portsman like conduct meant that he was seen as an excellent ambassador for India at the world stage. After his retirement, he has continued to champion the cause of Indian sport.Printed Pages: 252 with 38 b/w photographs.
