We’re still a fortnight away from Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, in which time one can catch the snackily-called Atkan Chatkan.
Atkan Chatkan literally refers to a kind of children’s game, but it made me think of everything from Haldiram flavours to naming traditions in northern households.
Kerala’s star player from the coastal parts of the capital city wants aspiring players to keep their body strong and resolve stronger
The India international has been holed up inside the flat that ATK had provided for him for the last two months.
The Kolkata outfit beat Bengaluru FC 1-0 in December last year, wherein they dominated the game from start to finish.
The victory took ATK level on points (24) at the top of the table with FC Goa.
The two sides will, however, play separately in the current I-League and ISL seasons.
Edu Garcia was the star for ATK as he scored once and set up super sub-Ankit Mukherjee for the winning goal following a drab goalless stalemate in the first half.
Gregory also made light of ATK's sacking of coach Teddy Sheringham after 10 games in charge, saying these things happen in football.
The decision to sack Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur great Sheringham came from the team management just a day before their home game against Chennaiyin FC.
ATK coach Sheringham said that it would have been better if they could train at their home ground, ahead of the ISL season.
Robbie Keane, who has scored four goals in as many practice matches, is expected to miss the first two matches at least.
