The vitality of sports for mental and physical growth can hardly be overestimated. It integrates confidence, physical and mental strength, teamwork and competency. While the matches of football, cricket, badminton, table tennis etc. are a source of entertainment to spectators, they are much more to the players. Sports are not just about winning and losing, this is just a dilemma that one has to lose, as John Bingham says, “The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.” The struggle and years and years of practice that goes into developing just the right kind of skills and abilities contribute towards the well-being in more ways than we know. A person who knows the essence of sports has a different view of life. Both victory and loss are a source of encouragement to him. It is a win-win situation for both, however, hard work wins in the end.
