Another invaluable result of these activities (sports, etc.) is the growth of what has been called the sporting Spirit. That includes good humor and tolerance and consideration for all, a right attitude and friendliness to competitors and rivals, Self –control and scrupulous observance of the laws of the game, Fair play and avoid-Tory or defeat without bad humor ,resentment or ill-will towards successful competitors , loyal acceptance of the decisions of the appointed judge umpire or referee.

These qualities have their value for life in general and not only of sport, but the help that sport can give to their development is direct and invaluable . If they could be made more common not only in the life of the individual but in the national life and in the international where at the present day the opposite tendencies have become too rampant ,existence in this troubled world of ours would be smoother and might open to a greater chance of concord and amity of which it stands very much in need … even a highest and completest education of the mind is not enough without the education of the body.

The nation which possesses(these qualities) in the highest degree is likely to be the strongest for victory, success and greatness , but also for the contribution it can make towards the bringing about of unity and a more harmonious world order towards which we look as our hope for humanity’s future.


Games are an excellent means for breaking the initial shyness and hesitation that children have their first day of introduction to school. When people play together, they laugh together end establish an immediate rapport. In our own experience during Youth Work, we have observed ‘Games’ to be one of the best means to bring people together and for making friends of strangers.

In this book, games have been selected to suit almost any environment. They require only a small area and less equipment. Many of them can even be played indoors. Some ‘energetic games’ have also been included here to provide physical exercise besides the fun.

The way the games have been described here is not sacrosanct. An imaginative and enterprising leader can introduce variations to improve a game or to make it suit the context better. Games are more than child’s play. Without being conscious of it , children prepare themselves for life while enjoying the game. When they play well, they learn how to succeed and handle victory; when they don’t play so well , they learn how not to fail and how to handle defeat.

In their interactions with their playmates , they learn to respect others ,respect rules their environment . when they do things right , they unwittingly cultivate good habits; when they make mistake , they learn valuable lessons at very little cost. In short , through fun and games one can learn a lot.

Science there is no language barrier in games , they are also a wonderful way of bridging geographical barriers.
