In the modern era, sports of all sorts have developed amazingly. How much stress is laid on games! Of late we have started realizing their significance. Many new sports have come to stay. At the international level, their importance is too great! Sports are a part and parcel of our life. All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Games make us strain-free and develop sportsman spirit in us. We learn the value of cooperation and teamwork, what mutual give and take is! We shun egoism, selfishness and become liberal and large-hearted by appreciating our opponents. So sports have a great significance in the lives of each one of us.
Importance of Sports Scholarship in School
School life is the golden period of one’s life. It is the time when the child is molded; his nurturing depends on the surroundings and people next to him as well as the opportunities that come his way. Sports scholarship is an intelligent concept. In lay man’s language, it literally means providing a student financial aid so that he can support his education expenses and this aid is given to those students who excel in any sort of sports in general. It is a dual concept, i.e. it is promoting two things simultaneously, one is Sports, so that the child does not neglect sports and can enhance his skills in the near future under proper guidance and supervision of the experts and trainers, and the other one is Education, by providing education at low or no cost, free education is, of course, a benefit especially to lower middle-class families where it is nearly impossible for them to afford school fees to educate their children.
Playing sports give glory to your country
People like Saina Nehwal, Sania Mirza, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Baichung Bhatia, have added glory to the nation. They are an asset to India. By providing the facility of Sports Scholarships in schools, they are securing the future of the country. There are numerous advantages of playing sports. They keep us alive and interesting. We remain zestful, never lose interest in life and thus our life does not appear to be a burden on us. Liveliness in our life never dies down. We are always young, buoyant, invariably youthful and sprightly, vivacious and gay. The value of discipline emerges best through sports.
A simple charity or providing such funds can make several lives. All the talent in the country can be productively used. Students who lack resources, students from financially weak backgrounds can also avail such opportunities to make their career on the basis of their talent and hard work. If the child succeeds later on, ultimately he will bring glory to the nation, school, society, parents, friends and himself. This is a great opportunity to lift up the poor sections of the society and leads to a happy and successful nation in near future where the maximum population is educated.
Play sports for fun and happiness
Let the students play sports just for the sake of enjoyment and happiness and later on people who are more inclined towards sports than studies can choose sports as a career ahead in their lives. We have no right to spoil the show and let the financial crisis be a hurdle in their way and abstain them from achieving their goals. Let them play a fair game whether it is in life or at the field. One learns one thing or the other from every sport. It is meant for recreation.
A sport is a happy past time and invested time in playing sports does not hang heavy on us. Time passes wonderfully. We need not abide it. Games strengthen the bond of friendship and bring us name and fame. They enlarge the sphere of our acquaintance and intimacy. Hence sports should be promoted in every aspect; India has a bright future ahead in this field.
