Games and sports are a necessary part of education. The aim of education is physical, mental, and moral development of a student. If the body is weak, the mind can never be strong.
‘Health is Wealth’ is an old saying. The students can build their health and body by playing games which provides exercise in the open and fresh air.’All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’ India does not need book worms with ill health. A good student must give time to studies, but he should not neglect games. He should follow the rule.”Work, while you work, play, while you play, that is the way to be happy and gay.”
Games teach us discipline and sportsmanship. A sportsman treats victory and defeat equally. Games provide a good training for playing the games of life. Games provide a good excitement in the dull life of the students. ‘An idle brain is a devil’s workshop.’ Students must be kept busy when they are not studying.
Games should be made compulsory for every student in every school. Education without games, is incomplete. In order to make full man of a student, schools should give due importance to games and sports.
