Author(s): Dr. Anu Singh and Dr. Sunitha Abhay Jain
Sports’ in India is considered to be an extra-curricular activity unlike other countries where it has already been included in mainstream curriculum. The reason behind this is simple i.e., the economic conditions of our country makes it difficult for us to think of sport as a primary source of earnings. Indian parents simply ignore the talents of their children thinking it would not help them in earning their bread and butter. Many such talents are subsided in the race of earning money through higher education. Therefore, there is a great need for the government to build such a nation which is healthy and pro-active in sports. This cannot be done in one day or in a year, but the appropriate strategies of building ‘Fit India and Behtar India’ can be adopted to make this dream come true in long run. The purpose of this paper is to find out the problems and obstacles in the way of ‘Fit India and behtar India’. It will also compare the governmental provisions of the foreign countries (mostly the nations which win gold and silver in Olympics) for its children. It has been understood that population is the biggest cause of poverty in India and hence there is a need to analyze the situation in other nations with same issues and find out their policies to overcome this situation. The authors would be using primary and secondary data for the analysis. Secondary data will be taken from various research articles based on experiments on Nudge. For primary data the interviews of parents would be taken across to find out the existing personal issues they face in pursuing the talent of their children. The recommendations of this study will be based on the analysis and findings from different data sources.
