There is a saying that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” So for an overall development of a child, games and studies should be given equal importance.
The games tone up a child’s physical growth which enables him to work hard in his studies also. So games make a child physically fit as well as make him more mentally aware.
The schools authorities should also give emphasis on games and sports as both games and academics complement each other. The games also develop sportsman spirit in students.
This is very important aspect of games as it prepares a person to accept defeat with a smile. This is an important lesson which students learn. This also prepares them for their future life.
The games could be indoor or outdoor. The schools should make provision to provide both types of games to an individual. There should be different courts to play different games like cricket, football, hockey and badminton.
The games also give players a sense of responsibility and a team spirit. The players learn to play together as a team co-ordinating each other’s actions.
A good player can always make game his profession. This way the games have an important role to play in developing feeling of co-operation and brotherhood.
