One of the most revered names in Indian football, writer and commentator – Novy Kapadia has passed away today. End of an epoch. May his soul rest is peace. Veteran commentator, author and football encyclopedia Novy Kapadia no more. He has contributed to Indian sports for decades and his service to football is unmatched. Our generation of football lovers will always remember him.

When I first read ‘Barefoot to Boots: The Many Lives of Indian football’, I was in awe of how well researched the book is. Rest in power Mr. Novy Kapadia. The man I grew up reading and hearing. Thank you for enlightening me so much about Indian football. A huge loss.

When he spoke, we listened!Injury Time India joins the Indian football community in paying homage to one of the finest individuals to spread the word about the beautiful game through his stories and commentary stints, NOVY KAPADIA!

Indian football has lost a well-wisher in #NovyKapadia sir. He was a mentor to many of us, a soft-spoken genius, would encourage budding sports journalists to continue with the habit of reading. Pained by his death…Rest in peace sir

RIP Gutted to know that sir Novy Kapadia is no more. A sea of knowledge of Indian football. The man who introduced the game to us on radio and television throughout the years. Forever in our hearts.
