      Yeah indeed modern day recreation sources are not completely free from harmful things. Games and sports can indeed be a good substitute in that regard. For that I think the guardians will need to play a key role. If parents are serious about games and sports then they can pass their thoughts to the children. In this manner the revival of games and sports in our daily life is very much possible.

      Modern day recreation sources not only give recreation to us but also bring a lot of negative things along with it. In that sense, games and sports are far better with regards to the harming of our thoughts and values. With games and sports, you will not only get recreation but also it helps up building a good physical structure. It has been seen in the statistics that people who are prone to games and sports lead a healthier life compared to the ones who are not. Even children participating in games are seen to have multiple and diversified skills. That’s why schools with different sports competition are seen to present the society more good students with diversified skills.

      So we all should look to take part in sports and games even in today’s hectic work schedule. Thus we will be able to build up a more refreshed and relaxed mind and live a healthier and happier life.

      Thanks to author for writing a separate post on the requirements of games and sports in our daily life. Almost all of us know this importance but we are not aware of it practically. Because of technological advancement in modern times, we have substituted games and sports with TV and computer. That’s starting from the children up to the elders all are becoming distant with sports and games. The outcome is also evident. Nowadays we are suffering from different diseases in the very early stages of the life. Even children are having diabetes! The main reason is the lack of sports and games in our life. Games and sports not only is the source of recreation but it also teaches us discipline. Due to lack of discipline, most of us now lead a undisciplined life which is the root cause of being attacked by different diseases.

      So we should incorporate games and sports more and more into our life in order to get rid of this situation.

      @Parth Juneja, Student should play games and sports for his physical fitness and mental freshen up not to be a good sportsman. So it is there part time activity. A sportsman practices it as his or her principle work. Thanks a lot for your comment.

      @Indian Chef, yes you are right but at this day many kinds of sports are arranged by the government for the girls in this part of the world. Many talents are coming out from our society such as Sania Mirza: the professional Indian tennis player, Saina Nehwal: Is an Indian badminton player, Mary Kom: Is an Indian boxer etc.

      Breathing, you are right when you say that sports should be made compulsory for everyone , unfortunately not many girls play sports in this part of world. I hope parents and school do encourage them to play more.
