This year our prime minister has decided to kick off the Fit India Movement from Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New Delhi at 10 A.M. on 29th August which will be telecasted live on Doordarshan.

While we have seen the rise of sporting culture in our country in the recent years, with the rise in popularity of different franchise leagues and coverage given to sports other than cricket we still have a long way to go and this day is a reminder that harr Gali main Sachin hain is not right, ab harr gali mein sachin, sania, Sindhu, Phogat, Chettri, saina, hain.

National Sports Day

We as a county are celebrating people who are making India proud in their respective disciplines and more people are picking up sports as a career.

That is the idea behind this day, to celebrate sports and the sportsmen in the country and keeping ourselves fit and living a healthy and disease-free life, it not only shapes the mind of a person but also makes the mind strong and active.
