BENEFITS OF PLAYING GAMES:
Sports and Games are essential for many reasons.They not only help us to maintain good health but also foster friendship and good behaviour.Many people think that the aim of sports and games is to win gold medals in olympic games.That is not at all important.what is important is that every boy and every girl in our country should be interested in sports and games.Being interested in games does not mean merely watching other people play games.They should devote at least an hour a day to sports and games.sports and games must be given as much importance as academic studies in our scools and colleges.Marks must be awarded for proficiency in mathematics and physics.
When all our school students and college students take part in sport and games,they will be healthy and active.They will participate in their academic studies and scientific experiments which great enthusiasm.
But physical health is not the only advantage of sports and games.Participation in sports and games fosters friendliness and broadmindedness among the participants.Sportsmen forget caste differences and religious differences and become friendly with one another.They look upon the world as one family.Thus sports and games have a lot of educative value.
Sportsmen have often to live together while undergoing training and participating in competitions.They understand one another and learn to make the adjustments for corporate life.They learn to respect one another's individuality.In other words,they learn the virtue of tolerance.
when they go to other countries to participate in international competitions,they are not merely competitors but messengers of good will.Whether they win medals or not,they will certainly earn a lot of good will.This does not mean that they will not win medals.when all our youngsters take part in sports and games every day,there will be many talented sportsmen and sportswomen.Their talent will improve day by day.It is quite certain that some of them will be able to win medals in international competitions.But the number of medals they win is not important.one year the number may be more,another year it may be less.What is important is that they will spread good will and love throughout the world.
