Let the Kids Play!

From which month actually a baby start kicking?? The answer is 5th Month… Must be wondering that why this question for this particular topic!!!  J  The 1st step towards sports or for any outdoor game starts from the womb of a mother for any child. It symbolizes that I want to run, jump and explore the world, though I belong to a tech-savy world. Let me go…

Sports does a magic for young stars. What, when, where and how it transforms a life of an individual is directly proportional to a specific game.You take any example: Cycling, helps in building mental stamina;horse riding, helps in taking risk and how to make strategy;chess, needs focus; then rugby needs a balanced body… You name a sport and it helps to develop a lot of things from a younger age. It is always easy to shape up a raw material than a readymade material. Sports are about those incredible moments where sheer human will and desire overcomes the odds. These are the moments we remember and cherish!!!

There was a program that used to be telecasted on Star plus named “Satyamave Jayate”, and there was an episode that focused upon sports. The episode showcased how sports change life of an individual from a younger age. The kids from slum, criminal or underprivileged backgrounds have seen a drastic change in their life after getting involved in Sports. These kids at present are very well known in their districts or cities or at national/international level games of their age group.

During childhood, sports is more than just winning medals. Although trophy is materialist but eventually it will decay with passage of time but memories associated are immortal till an individual is alive. At younger age, a child play sports to have fun but eventually it leads to immense potential transformation. It helps build character and break down barriers – of caste, religion and gender. Purpose of playing is enjoyment, physical development, a great past time, a healthy activity for kids. But at the same time teaches you the lesson of hard-work, focus, discipline, dedication, patience, team-work and what not.  At a younger age, it teaches you the best lessons of life that can be carry forwarded for lifetime. Sports helps in realization that one should not feel pride when you win and never feel dishearten when you lose. The kids who start playing at a younger age, face the challenges of life in a different way, their way of perceiving & foresee life is much different than their other age group people.

This has been illustrated by real-life examples of many children. Be it the sport of football or cricket or swimming, it holds the ability to grab a child’s attention and impart life lessons at the same time. India has many such stories. From Saktheshwari of the Slum Children Sports Talents Education Development Society, Chennai to Krishna, a swimmer from Gujarat; from Gaganjyot Singh of Rurka Kalan, Punjab to Prachi Meshram of Nagpur, the lives of some young people have been transformed by sports.

Generally, sport is regarded as a waste of time; from an early age children are constantly told by parents and teachers to concentrate on academics. But they don’t understand that it is about building team spirit, of learning to lose with grace and coming back to fight another day. It makes the child strong, independent and self-confident. In today’s scenario schools concentrate on that 1% of students who can win the medal for the schools but they don’t realize that many lessons of life a student learn from the ground. Sports should not be the part of education, this itself is an education.

This change is possible for all of our younger generation – we just need to get them out and play. Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking our potential…

So let’s play!!!
