Distorted Indian map on website

NEW DELHI, June 16: India got a shocker well before the start of the six-nation Champions Challenge tournament with the official website of the hockey meet featuring a distorted map of the country.
The map featured on the website shows India without the Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Moreover, this area is shown as part of Pakistan. The organisers did not respond to e-mails seeking their reactions.
India is to take part in the hockey tournament to be held in Boom, Belgium, from 23 June to 1 July. Argentina, England, New Zealand, Japan and hosts Belgium are the other countries taking part in the event.
The map also has some other glaring distortions ~ portions of Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh being shown differently than in the original sketches. Besides, it also features a flawed outline of neighbouring Sri Lanka, with its southern portions shown as a straight line.
Factually too, the website has some wrong information. Even as India is currently eighth in the world hockey ranking and Argentina is seventh, the portal puts both the countries’ rankings in the reverse order. PTI

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
