Games and sports keep one physically and mentally fit. They keep one away from diseases relating to heart, mental stress and sleeplessness. They instill in the player a spirit of self-confidence, self-reliance, discipline, justice, fair play and patriotism. Games provide us with recreation and enjoyment. Games are very essential for students but they are neglected in schools. Every parent does not have high opinion about games and they want their children to devote more time to studies. India lacks funds, and proper training facilities are not provided to the players. Sports bring rich dividends to sportsman. The government has formulated a New National sports Policy. Effective measures should be taken to popularize, and encourage participation in games and sports.
