"Sport is friendship; sport is health; sport is education; sport is life; sport brings the world together." - Juan Antonio Samaranch
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is a proverb. It means if a person only works and not play then the person will become bored. So playing in life is as important as working to keep body and mind fit for a happy and successful life. The development of the body is as important as that of mind. Game and sports are the food for the body, as knowledge is food for the mind, and religion for the soul.

Games and sports are very useful for health. There is another proverb, "Health is wealth", and this wealth we can get by staying free from diseases, both physically and mentally by doing exercises in the form of games. They refresh the mind and fill the body with fresh air. Which keeps us more active to do our daily work.

Games and sports develop a sense of discipline among the students. A disciplined team wins the game. The players abide by the rules of the games and the judgment of the referee. This teaches the players the importance of rules and regulations in life. Therefore sportsmen are generally found more disciplined persons than others.

This develops the spirit of sportsmanship. It means fair play and no favour/favor. The players play with team spirit. Thus they learn the need of co-operation for success. With this quality, sportsmen prove to be good citizens in life. They develop in them a feeling of community life and self-sacrificing nature.

Some students neglect games thinking them meaningless and a source of wastage of time. They are wrong. After playing games, we regain our lost energy and studies with greater interest. So games and sports should be a compulsory part of education for students in every institute.

Games and sports must have a high value in our life. To live a healthy life, we should take part in sports. It removes the dullness and keeps us cheerful. We cannot do any work if our health is poor. It is very discouraging that our players win very few gold medals at the Olympic Games. The government should frame a national policy in this regard. Sportsmen are the pride of our nation. Our government must fulfil/fulfill its duty to help the athletes both financially and technically to kindle their interest.
