Dream, Dream, Dream
Dream transforms into thoughts
And thoughts result in action.

In my school days, the only time I used to be at home during the holidays is during the lunchtime and to sleep. We used to play all sorts of outdoor games like Cricket, Football, Tennis, Seven Stones, Gilli,Kabaddi,Volleyball, Kho-Kho and many more games. You name it we played it all.

Oh man, those days are full of fun and delightful memories!!!

But in today’s lifestyle, the popularity of mobile, television and video games are growing alarmingly, making our kids inactive and weak.

As the playgrounds in schools and public play areas are shrinking day by day due to overgrowing population and urbanization, youth nowadays show less interest and inclination towards the outdoor games.

It’s very amusing and sad to see the kids play the outdoor games in their mobile, hooked all day to their phones without realizing the impact it has on them and parents are happy to buy them their favorite video games.

So what’s the problem? Are they not healthy? What about their studies? Is there any safety for kids outside? What about my dreams which my kid has to fulfill?

Some of these questions make sense in today’s competitive and insecure world but let’s not forget the power of sports in youth.

Participation in sports has many benefits for children has it offers the chance for youth to enhance their social and physical skills.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a
language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial
barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”
– Nelson Mandela

Watch the inspiring speech by Mr.Nelson Mandela...

The importance of sports and fitness in one’s life is invaluable.
  • Playing sports inculcates team spirit and develops leadership skills, strategic thinking, goal setting, analytical ability, and risk-taking.
  • A fit and healthy individual leads to an equally healthy society and a strong nation.
  • It is an extremely important component for the overall development of the nation.

Sports teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose-it teaches you about life.
- Billie Jean King
