Games and sports are an integral part of students life ,outdoor games build up a healthy body and make mind energetic. But in the modern education system ,importance of physical activities are undermined, most of the schools do not even have a game period .These schools concentrate only on marks percentages & positions .Due to extended working hours at school , students are fully tired when they reached home & they only want to relax, lack of physical exercise leads to obesity and increasing health problems. All of us heard this phrase “all work & no play make jack a dull boy “ so if we don’t make our children’s like jack so we must make sports & games not optional but compulsory with education, hence the government should ensure that physical exercise, sports & games shall be a part of the academic Curriculum.
