Hi friends.

In the future, every child learns games and sports during childhood days. Every child in India they acquired skills and participates for our nation. But give encourage to them and so much confidential about their games and take medals to our nation. So many skills hide in the rural people but politician didn't give chances to them if given the chances. Then future of sports in India is inspired throughout the world.

On this topic, the future of sports in India is very bright. As we can see sports like cricket, football, hockey, Kabaddi etc are the sports which Indian prefers the most. IPL in cricket gives the opportunities to the new players to show their talent. Pro Kabaddi is the new league in India was started to promote this sport in India.

Future of sports in India is bright provided some facilities being provided to the sportsperson. There are lack of infrastructure, lack of motivation, lack of support from the family and from the government.

Government should provide good facilities to the coaches and to the sportsperson. They should provide funds to them. Sometimes inspire of having talent a person is unable to perform good due to lack of sports kit, proper training, and support. There is not even a single national institution for sports which can motivate students to take sports as a career option.

I think students should be encouraged from the beginning itself about the sports, and the fame associated with it. There should be a sports period every day from the primary school itself. So that every child can play and identify their talent in sports. If the conditions in the sports field is good they can look onto sports as a career option. The poor financial condition is also one of the major cause for not having enough candidates in sports. Whenever anyone chooses sports, he /she thinks twice whether he/she can earn a living through it or not. Sometimes they are the only feeder in their family so they have to give up on their dreams. There is also politics in national sports federation, the whole funds do not reach to them.

So with this, I will like to conclude that it's not like that India doesn't have talents but it doesn't have proper facilities for the persons involving in sports. If facilities can be improved, then surely the future of sports in India is bright and shining.

Thank you.

Have a great day ahead.

Good evening everyone.

Today's topic is the future of sports in India.

The future of the sport in India is very bright. Because people are aware of to make a career in the sports era. And nowadays government of India taking my initiatives to search a sportsman in all over part of India i.e. Recognizing Sports as an Industry, providing proper infrastructure and all necessary facility to people, providing a fund to all sports. And now the Indian sportsman doing well in all format like as Indian cricket team, hockey team and the Indian football team doing well since the last 2 years and the all Indian teams doing well/good in all format.

But there are the many difficulties which are as:

1. Doesn't provide proper infrastructure because govt provide all necessary details because mediators doing the fraudulent activity.

2. Corruption: people who are eligible don't get the opportunity because of politician power.

In the ancient period of time, our country India has a large contribution in the field of sports. At that time kabaddi and kusti were the most popular game in which a large number of players play these sports. Nowadays, many of the physical game and sports attract our young generation and they took interest in their favourite sports. As we talk about the "future of sports in India " then this sentence give unique identity future to our country. Day by day India made his identification among the world ranking of sports. Either in the field of cricket or in the field of hockey India has no 1 position in world top ranking. Our young generation much interested in the field sports. But they really need to good facility and better infrastructure.

The future of sports in India depends upon the youth and the upcoming generation. India is a diversified country and people of the different region took interests in different things. India should create a bright future if the proper training schools, Infrastructure provided in a better manner. We all know Hard work is the key to success but for that hard work, we need those facilities also because without a proper facility one cannot develop their skills. So India can really perform well and go ahead from where it is now and can really create a bright future in sports. If every school give proper interest for sports from the primary classes and they include it as a part of the study so it really gives a good impact on our country that whom of the students are interested in sports and they will work in the sports from primary classes and can really lighten the name of our country. But one thing I want to say that our country belongs to a major rural population so apart from the urban population if we put efforts to develop those rural areas. They will take part in everything and really make a bright future in sports.

I would like to share my view. We have proud to be an Indian. In India future of sports is very bright.

Nowadays we all seen that sports are very popular and in the sports future is very bright not for only richness but for representing India. We all know in many stream of sports very talented players represent India.

Most of people and parents are thinking sports is not good and there is no future. They only force their children for doing a study and not allowed to go for sports.

Sports is very important for health. A healthy body is also required sports and work out. Nowadays people only watching TV playing video games they are not taking initiative for sports.

As we are here to discuss such a crucial topic, in my opinion, we should first look into the obstacles that the Indian sports is currently facing. Though India has achieved a big success in sports, the no of athletes who have achieved this success is too less. Why is so? Don't our country have enough sports enthusiastic students? Or there are some other reasons? If we look into our educational system, what we can see is there's no specific institute in India for sports enthusiastic youths. Many of the sports enthusiastic students in India don't follow their passion because of lack of funding, lack of proper infrastructure and lack of other facilities. Though we have sports quota in govt job, the seats are very limited. If we can establish a proper centralised institute for sports and proper scholarship system for the students, many of the sports enthusiastic students will turn up, and they will think to take sports as their career. Cricket is already getting much helps. Through the infrastructural facilities, we can encourage other sports as well. And in this way, I hope India can get more Mary Kom, more syna who will be representing India in an international platform and will glorify our nation. And there will be a great future for Indian sports.

Hello Every One,

I have a mixed opinion on this, I feel the future of sports in India is Bright provided certain criteria is fulfilled.

Lack of infrastructure, lack of motivation and lack of funds will always remain the reasons which will pull us down.

As per my opinion, the population is the biggest drawback and an advantage for us.

As a disadvantage:

1. We just don't have evolved as a country which shines brightly as a sport, we have to feed our poor and ensure they are living in better houses. All in all their basic needs are fulfilled. i.e Food, shelter and clothing.

2. Even if the funds are allocated after fulfilling the above needs, the sports federation, right from the top to bottom fight for their share. i.e. corruption playing its role. So the attitude has to change right from the top. We have talent and manpower, but how will we nourish it if we don't have the right tools and infrastructure.

3. The third opinion is why do you want to play or pursue sports as a career. There is a saying try to do what you love or you will be forced to love what you do. So when you start playing or pick up a sport, do you think that this will feed my family one day. We always compare ourselves with the Olympic medalist, do you understand the amount of hard work they put in to stand on that podium. The feelings of feeding the family are distractions which never allow one to succeed in their arena, that is when you are afraid and you give up. Winning a gold medal is beyond this. This is just an excuse that I am poor who will feed my family, are first put in the effort and win than think of feeding them.

Our soldiers join forces out of love towards the nation, they know about the risk involved but they still join in.

So, I feel that the future is sports in India is complicated, unless until the attitude of the people change about sports. The corruption has to end completely, then we can think about providing facilities to our big population. Else population too will become a hindrance.

Thank you.

According to me, Future of Sports in India is not good. Our country is reliant on traditional education techniques and we don't focus much on overall growth of the youth. For example, in schools there is only one games period per week, therefore the youngsters have limited career option & they don't think out of the box.

Some movies like Dangal, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag gave motivation to the students and some of them now took certain sports as their career options.

These things should be taught up in schools so that the Child can choose from a variety of Career Options.

Future of sport in India is bright?

I must say India is a country with a billion people and yet our contribution in sports is very less. India doesn't lack in talent, it doesn't lack in hard work but lacks in support. Support from family support from the government.

Many talented players quit the sport and start working somewhere to help themselves their family because they find their problems and greater than their dreams.

No support no facility from the government makes them even more easy to quit on their dreams.

But apart from cricket, very fewer games are there were India had achieved much.

But now the position and stand for sports is charging people are coming out with determination and will. The government also started many schemes and programs to help sportsman. Many sportspeople in numerous fields had achieved miles.

If I start quoting them here list will not end.

So, in my opinion, Sports have a great future ahead for such an amazing country "INDIA".

The future of sports in India is bright. Why I am saying this is that, If we discuss the past history of India, we are very much fond of cricket. Even though oru national sport is hockey we consider cricket as our favourite sport. Even though we have other sports the models that we were respecting and trying to imitate are from cricket only. That was something pathetic. But the things have changed and in a changing course. Now we have role models in each and every sports. With the advent of isl the football in India has strengthen their stats. Saina Nehwal and pv Sindhu has done so much to branding the game of badminton. These all some good signs which shows the sport in India is bright.

Hi everyone.

I think future of sports in India goes to the right way. Some years before in our country gave the priority only cricket, but now beside the cricket govt as well as private organization come to help the other sportsman's and provide the facility for training diet and also get the job. But this is not enough I think if govt as well as private organization are spent some big amount of money then the sporters are showing better performance and enlighten the name of India in world.

I think the future of sports is under development.

The government along with other private sectors have taken huge responsibilities in lifting the level of sports. India this year have won a record no of medals in Asian games. Private sectors are giving a handful to the govt by organising tournaments and bringing out raw talent from remote parts of our country. But the phase of being a raw sportsman to a professional is very difficult. It is here where the Govt needs to look up rather than after a professional wins any event.

Sports are liked by everyone as they are good for health and also a leisure activity. No other sport in India is as much popular as cricket is but other sports are also gaining popularity nowadays like football, kabaddi. Sports industry is developing with increased manufacturing of sports car (though it is low as compared to the production of other cars). We can see Indians participating in Asian games, Olympics etc and they perform excellently. Their participation and performance makes India and their family members proud. Thus, encouraging more people to join sports and make a career in it.

Now, our Indians are showing utmost interest on sports. In Asian games, the crew is performing in tremendously. We got many medals in this Asian games as compared to the past 3 times. But we are in the last position in the points table. This is because of lack of infrastructure, financial crisis to the person who is willing to show their talent.

Our India got talent to do everything, but we need perfect coaching for the particular sport or game. Because of this, our youngsters are stepping out of their interest in sports. When they grew up they need to earn money, they start searching for jobs and leave their interest on sports. Exactly they will become busy. So I think this is the main problem for our country's development in sports.

As our country has 70% of youngsters, we can do miracles in sports. Our government should make use of these youngsters and let our country's name and fame fly high.

I think we should forget the idea of India is good at sports because they play good cricket. Because most people think that cricket is the one mainstream sports in this world. Its because of the lack of curiosity on the other sports and the lack of guidance on sports like football and many other. The government should take action in finding out the talented players by organizing the sports programmes on rural areas and also providing the perfect coach who are actually passionate about the sports. In India we have lived up to the restrictions provided by the parents as to prioritize the education over the sports more which has led to many inborn talents and many dreams so I guess the parents themselves should motivate thier kids when they are actually passionate or enthusiastic over something new.

Hello everyone,

There are some issues which need to be addressed:

1) Lack of infrastructure.
2) Lack of Sports schools, especially in rural areas.
3) Lack of sporting culture.
4) Politics in National Sports Federations.
5) Insufficient funds.
6) Lack of incentives to sports persons.
7) Low salaries of Sports Coaches and staff in the sports field.
8) Becoming a sports person is expensive for poor and lower middle class because it requires costly sports equipment and years of dedicated hard work.
9) In India, employment opportunities in the sports field are very much less, when compared globally.
10) Lack of concurred sports culture in India.
11) Lack of quality equipment, and no proper coaches.

The present situation of sports is definitely better than before with the introduction of leagues for neglected sports. But, there is a need to develop India as a multi-sports nation. This can be done through talent search programs, thereby finding talents in especially rural areas as there is no exposure to even the talented, finding unrecognized sports disciplines, creating awareness about different sports, providing opportunities, organizing games and events to nurture it. Multiple sports must be concentrated and worked upon instead of the selective few ones.

Hello friends.

I think India have great future in sports. As we know India is the second largest country in population. But we are getting very less medals in olympics it is because of no proper guidance about sports. Government of India should also concentrate for development of sports. And sports is also one of the source to develop the country. Parents in India are forceing their children to study. They are not at all interested to send their children towards the sports. They think that education is the only key to success. Parents should incotage the children to go towards the sports. We will get lot of opportunities in getting jobs. And we have good reservation in sports.

Hello friends,

First of all, we have to discuss how to increase attraction about other games instead of cricket. Just think how cricket is more famous after coming of IPL. So for increasing attraction about other game our gov. Should pass some society in which experinced people share their experience and initiate like IPL. Many games have started (ex:PRO KABBADI, HIL, PIL etc) popular but we have far away from that mildstone where all the games all attract just like cricket. We can see people are exited we any player won the medel (ex:HIMA DAS IN ATHLETICS) we only see that time when that person won the medel than after we forgot that game so looking the future of any other games than cricket our government should launch app of soccer games, kabbadi, badminton on play store and ios and give prize to people who score best.

I don't think the future of sports in India is good because of the following reasons.

1. There is a lack of infrastructure and lack of encouragement for sports in India.

2. Low salaries of sports coaches and staffs in the sports field.

3. Also, due to lack of nutrition in children from the lower class and lower middle class these children are not fit for sports because for sports people should be physically as well me mentally fit.

4. Due to the lack of job opportunity in the sports field in India. If someone failed in sport, he/she has to face struggle to make living in India.

5. Becoming a sports person is expensive for poor and lower middle class because it requires costly sports equipment.

6. Indian education system more focused on studies rather than sports.

To overcome this, parents should encourage their children in sports.

The government should provide good facilities to sportsperson and also encourage them.

In my point of view, sports means different games but in India only cricket is popular that doesn't mean India has good players in cricket and other games also little bit popular like hockey, football etc. If they perform well the India popularity wiil know to world. So govt take an further steps evolove the sports in all ways and enhance skills of players or find them use in proper way, if you build today we wiil enjoy everything in future so my opinion is the future of sports is depends present that depends on government if government do all the required things and encourage everyone one who are interested in sports increase their level and countrys level throughput the world.

And as you said govt has not taken any steps, How could you say this? because As we seen women shows interest in cricket that's why govt gave chance to they.

India used to perform very poorly in Olympic. Many times people of different countries make joke also as such huge country got 2 or 3 medals. Why?

The Performance of Indian cricket team is very well as its IIC raking is one in ODI. But what about other games. Future seems to be same as current scene. The government has not taken any effective steps yet regarding other games. Future of our sportsman is not secure, because they do not get a better job after their gaming age. They are also not paid well. Therefore, many good sportsmen leaves their carrier earlier due to either family pressure or lack of money. The facility of a coach is also very poor in the gaming centre, unlike other countries.

Future of Sports is in hand of government and youth of our nation. Most of the youngsters are busy in finding jobs or don't want to do hard work. To Compete with other countries, we have to follow their trends.
