Indian-Canadian Pereira amused by identity crisis at Delhi CWG

Canadas hockey captain Ken Pereira, a player of Indian origin who will be team Canadas flag bearer at the Delhi Commonwealth Games opening ceremony, has admitted that he is a bit amused by his identity crisis in India.


New Delhi, Oct 3: Canada's hockey captain Ken Pereira, a player of Indian origin who will be team Canada's flag bearer at the Delhi Commonwealth Games' opening ceremony, has admitted that he is a bit amused by his identity crisis in India.

Interacting with media persons in New Delhi, Pereira joked his way out of the issue by making it clear that he was born in Canada, and has only recently started visiting India.

The veteran player also said that it is a little awkward when people try to speak with him in Hindi.

"It's like a Bollywood movie, it's completely blown up. I'd no idea it would be like this," The Globe and Mail quoted Pereira, as saying.

With over 16 years as a member of Canada's hockey team, Pereira has a remarkable international sporting career and has earned over 300 caps.

He is widely considered one of the best midfielders in the game.

Around 60,000 spectators are expected to attend the three-hour opening ceremony at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Sunday.
