Author(s): Shaikh Mostafizur Rahman and T Inaobi Singh
Play, Game and Sports are Physical Activity but Physical Activities are not Play, Game and Sports, recreation is essential” Physical education is a pedagogical process. Physical means individuals’ bodily, psychological, emotional and social development, that is all-round development. Roman satirist; Latin Decimus Junius Juvenalis in English Juvenal wrote a poem. It is the first in a list of what is desirable in life. Satirist Juvenal coined a Latin phrase in his poem “mens sana in corpore sano” usually translated as “a healthy mind in a healthy body”. The phrase is widely used in sports and educational contexts to express the theory that physical exercise is an important or essential part of mental and psychological well-being. Recreation, physical activity, play, game and sports are integral part of Physical Education. For the common man recreation, physical activity, play, game and sports are synonymous. But in the world of sports they are significantly different. Its importance is also individual. Which has to be clear to the general people as well as physical educationists. Because, physical education is the best discipline which can help to build a happier and more peaceful world.
