Congratulate the Indian hockey team

Dhanraj PillayIndia won the 2003 Asia Cup hockey title, beating arch-rivals Pakistan 4-2 in the final at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Sunday.

The maiden triumph in the competition also secured India a berth in the 2006 World Cup.

After the disappointments of the 2002 World Cup and the recently-concluded 2003 Champions Trophy, the Asia Cup triumph should serve as a shot in the arm to the team's efforts to qualify for the Athens Olympics, its next big assignment.

Your chance to congratulate Dhanraj Pillay and his boys.
