Impact of sports as part of education
Aspirations are bigger than dreams. Dreams may or may not fulfil. Aspirations are always important for one. It took you to understand what makes you. Therefore, what field you are interested and good at. Well, many children like to play. They might be best. Outside the academy’s offer them to play. So, after school, they get ready for their playtime.
Undoubtedly, if sports will become part of education. Certainly, students who are the best. They will get more training. They will manage studies and passion equally. Some of them leave while they get worried about the future. Many colleges don’t have a sporting facility. So, when they go for further studies. They surely leave it. This could help a lot of them.
This new plan for education policy by Kiren Rijiju is appreciable. His team members are still working on this plot. Moreover, this is a step for the next level. Where capable ones will shine. The Ministry is working hard to form a committee. National Sports Education Board is still in progress. He had a very ‘high-level committee’ working on. They had already started figuring and shaping it as perfect. Hence, everything needs time.
Later, he told about the “Olympic Museum”. They are discussing this project. It may be implemented after Covid-19. The situation is truly not good. It is worst than anything. He addressed India as a country known for the best and perfection. Therefore, this Museum in India will be a huge gem. So, this is an enormous privilege and pride for India. Execution of the plan will be done later. Furthermore, the committee will ensure the plans go in the right way.
