SHOULD WE DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN??
We have often been told by our elders to go down and play, to not sit idle in front of the television, to be more active and to stay fit. Physical and mental health both serve as prerequisites to achieve great heights in life. Sports, an integral part of all our lives, is one of the many means to accomplish a healthy body and a sound mind. Sports have a tremendous impact on our culture, influencing the values of millions of participants and spectators. When you look at the definition of sports in the dictionary, it is described as “a physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively”. The fundamental idea of sport is that along with keeping us fit physically it also helps in creating unity, building a strong character, teaching the virtues of dedication, perseverance, endurance and self-discipline, promoting moral values and enriching community pride. This is why it is important that sports are played properly and good ethics and values are shown.
