Playing a sport is extremely important

Friday, May 11, 2018

Recently cricketer Virat Kohli and Puma India commissioned a pan-Indian study with Kantar IMRB on physical activity and sports adoption in India. Well, the results are out: On the minus side -- for the age group 22-40 years, one-third of respondents hadn’t done any physical activity even once in the last year. In fact, as high as 57 per cent respondents hadn’t played a sport even once in the previous year. The majority of non-playing respondents cited a lack of time as the primary reason for not playing sports. Yet the same people spent 4-5 hours on social media, watching TV, personal phone conversations and messaging platforms on an average working day! On the positive side, 81 per cent of those who played reported doing so for the joy it gave them. More than three-quarters of the playing respondents played in the open spaces near their homes and 65 per cent of them reported playing with their neighbours. Needless to say, for young able-bodied people playing a sport (or getting required physical exercise) regularly is the most essential way for staying fit as well as for building healthful human relations within their communities and in society at large.
