HYDERABAD: Despite the growing popularity of sports in the country, there seems to be no change in schools and colleges. Most of the institutions remain focused on curricular activities and sports is constantly neglected. Sports play a vital role in a students career. The system has become more theory based. Parents and schools want their wards and students to be state toppers and not state players in any sport. Many forget that universities give admissions on sports quota. They encourage the custom of conducting sports like athletics, intramurals, etc. giving opportunity to almost all students for participation. Inclusion of sports enhances a student’s focus in academics as their concentration levels improves by playing any sport.

Apart from all this, don’t you think our students need to get a break from their regular academic projects, assignments, presentations and examinations? It is always a stress buster to get some recreational time especially when you are loaded with 10 different subjects. Do you think sports should play a bigger role?
