We need to be pre-activists and recognize the urgency of giving sports its rightful place in the Indian education system.

Sports is not considered ‘education’ in India. It is relegated as a play-time or extra-curricular activity that children take up when they are free from academics.

A familiar adage says: “Padhoge, likhoge, banoge nawab; kheloge, kudoge, hoge kharab,” (If you study hard, you will live like a king; but if you play sports, you will ruin your life.) This mindset needs to change.

Our education system must recognize the importance of engaging children in sports.

Let us all try our best to wake up before the alarm rings and bring out the pre-activists within us by solving issues before they take an alarming turn. Participate in the discussion and let us know in the comments, how do you pledge to be a pre-activist?
