Recently, Unmukt chand, the captain of victorious under-19 team was denied moving in the next year of graduation as did not meet the rules of university for graduating. The primary reason for this was, he was participating in under-19 world cup. cant we have separate rules for people participating in sports at national and international level..
Sports should be a part of any curriculam.. In developed countries, professional training n infrastructure is provided to students in all fields.. Like gymnastics, football, athletics etc so that they r better prepared at world events..
It requires a lot of systematic planning by the authorities.. Sports r good n shud be there
sports is completely neglaected in india. in europe n US, sporta re taken up professionally by children at the age of 6-7 years. this is how they end up becoming world class athletes at the peak of their careers.
here there is no infrastructure, no grounds, no formal training, no coaches, lack of equipment and no ficus.
studies is the only thing that parents and teachers force children to do. despite india winning a few medals at international meets, we are still miles away from becomng a sports power nation, which is not good considering that we are a Young Country!
Training through professional sports coaching in schools would ensure students being healthy and would also preprae them with an alternative career if thy excel. Currently lack of infrastructure and lesser opportunities cause students opting out of their sports option as a career.
A country needs to strat from scratch if it has to excel in global sports
