Vocabulary Tricks Part 5: Games and Sports

Published on Monday, January 30, 2017
We all are familiar with the saying that Health is Wealth. Games help us in keeping body alert, youthful and energetic. They have a greater role in instilling a spirit of adventure. By playing games, we get rid of all worries and anxieties.
Games help in learning various traits like punctuality, self-discipline and diplomacy. Children these days do not indulge in physical activities due to which they become obese. They should be emboldened to take part in games.

However, a performance of our country is grossly disappointing in Olympics. Our players are not able to grab medals. Importance is given only to the Cricket. But accusations of match-fixing are harming the image of the game.
Following years of motivation, some sports like Kabaddi and Wrestling are gaining recognition. There is a need to give awards and incentives to sportspersons giving spectacular performances.
