The Role of School Sports
There is an adage 'All work and no play makes Jack a dull man. A student who is good in sports as well as in academics, develops an overall personality which is reflected in his or her life. It gives him strength, a sense of discipline and how to associate with other players. School sports make school life more interesting.
Now-a-days all the colleges and schools have sports as a part of compulsory curriculum. So for this purpose schools have big playgrounds. They have big playgrounds to accommodate games like football, hockey and cricket. Some schools also provide their students games like basketball, volleyball, table tennis, lawn tennis and badminton. School sports play a very important role in teaching a student team spirit. They teach a student to play the game for the sake of playing and not for the sake of winning. So spirit of healthy competition and discipline is taught to the students.
Some schools even have gymnasium to develop a child's physique and mind. A student can apply the sportsman spirit in his everyday life also and learn to accept defeats with a smile. Sports also teach us that practice makes a man perfect and hardwork really pays in the end. School and college sports also help the student to choose careers in sports itself. So school sports should be encouraged and concerned authorities should see to it that schools make proper provision for this.
Trees and forests play an important role in our lives. Trees give us wood which is used for fuel for furniture and different industries also depend on trees. Trees exhale oxygen and take in carbon di-oxide which is important for clean air. They also give shelter to animals and birds. In summers, they provide shade to tired human beings.
But now-a-days people have started cutting down trees for their selfish reasons. They are endangering our environment. If people continue to cut trees there would be no greenery left on earth. The trees prevent soil erosion, which is very important for agriculture.
In hilly region, there is less danger of floods if trees are there. The roots of trees also store water in them. They beautify our surroundings and purify our air. But if there are no trees left then the whole area would become a desert.
So government should take strict action against, those people who cut trees. It should be an effort of every human being to plant more trees. In cities it would reduce the pollution level if more trees are planted.
The programme of planting of trees was started by Shri Vinobha Bhave. Now-a-days our political leaders have also started laying emphasis on growing of trees to have a healthy environment.
