    Sports Authority of India’ was setup in 1984 to boost the future of India in sports. It is under the ministry of youth and sports which gives annual sports awards eg-arjuna award, major Dhayan chand award etc
    * Governments initiatives
    1 sports quota in government job which encourage sports person.
    2 Government give cash prizes and awards to the winners.
    3 India hosted and co-hosted several international sports events.
    4 Education quota in higher education were also given to the player
    Despite all these efforts there is some challenges too
    1 Lack of Sports schools, especially in rural areas.
    2 Indian education system only concentrates on studies, but not on sports.
    3 Malnutrition in children is a big challenge as sports person should be physically and mentally fit.
    4 lack of funds, incentives , infrastructure ,sporting culture .
    Way forward
    1 Sports schools should be setup and it should be a part of our education.
    2 More and more international sports events should be hosted in India to encourage and inspire Indian youth towards sports.
    3 commercialization of underdeveloped sports
    As India has more no of young people, there is more potential to utilize sports talent in youth hence India has a bright future in this regard . No doubt we improved a lot but still much to be done to inspire future generations to take sports as their career choice .

    In today’s scenario health became a very important aspect which encourage many people in sport sector.Recently in passed tokyo olympics we saw that our country done well in which three medals were won by womens which shows the step of our beginning in future sports.
    *Opportunities in sports for India :-
    1.Increase foreign investment in terms of sponsorship.
    2.Increase establishment of sport industries.
    3. Increase employment in sports sector.
    4.Increase reputation of country in global scenario .
    *Challenges in sports in India:-
    1.Poor Infrastucture ; equipments and technique.
    2.Less Funding.
    3.Lack of knowledge about sports.
    4.Less participation.
    From the above we conclude that India is a country of youth which make it a strong nation but the problem is lack of awareness and support.Government also take some initiatives like ”khelo india” ,”Sports Infrastructure Scheme” to encourage youth to express there talent and make there courier in sports.

    Recently, India has shown an outstanding performance at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 which is evident of the potential of Indian athletes and sportspersons. The sports industry in India has flourished a lot, especially in the last few years which will contibute in the country’s global standing in sports.
    Having a huge population from diverse cultures and regions, India has a bright future in sports field if athletes are given equal opportunities since the beginning. Many Indians have set examples for the world like ‘the flying sikh- Milkha Singh’, ‘the hockey wizard- Major Dhyanchand’ and many more who won gold medals for india in the prestigious olympic games. Also women participation in sports is increasing, as a result of which we have the ‘Phogat Sisters’ in wrestling, ‘Mary Kom’ in boxing, ‘Women’s Hockey Team’ at 4th place in tokyo 2020, all being an inspiration for the young players of the country.
    Still sports in india is facing several challenges too which includes:
    – Lack of facilities and infrastructure for the athletes.
    – Unavailability of funds and inaccessibility to continue the games further.
    – Lack of awareness, especially in rural people about the future in sports.
    – Improper education system where physical education is not given much importance.
    Hence , to overcome the challenges and grab the opportunities, GOI is taking various steps in sports development like,
    – Khelo India Programme, to promote more sports enthusiasm.
    – Various awards like Arjuna award, Major Dhyanchand award and cash prizes to encourage the athletes.
    Therefore, it’s high time now that people also recognise the importance of sports if they want New India as a global power in every field.

    First of all sport is an activity in which two or more parties compete against each other . Sports are an integral part of human life and there is great importance of sports in all spheres of life. Furthermore, sports help build the character and personality of a person. Sport can teach values such as fairness, team-building, equality, discipline, inclusion, perseverance and respect. Sport has the power to provide a universal framework for learning values, thus contributing to the development of soft skills needed for responsible citizenship. Some benefit of the sports are health benefits, social skills, teamwork, self esteem, resilience. It was predictabl Greece that sports were first instituted formally. In 1721, British soldiers docked and decided to play cricket. They started playing with local on the seaboard of India , near cambay, cricket become one of the first sports introduced to India.
    – Sports is regarded as the biggest industry in terms of revenue and employment . The business is a million-dollar affair. India, a developing nation plays a key role in this revenue system.
    – The government of India is introducing game-changing scheme such as “khelo India” to address issues regarding infrastructure, talent scouting and training facilitation.
    – The growth and development of the Indian sport industry is creating opportunities for management professionals in a wide variety of settings.
    – Boosted by initiatives such as professional leagues of developed sports, professionalisation of heritage sports and increased corporate sector investment, sports industry expects a faster growth in shorter time frame.
    – Increasing the employment rate . The sectors directly and indirectly linked with sports industry, such as medicine sector, goods and apparel industry and others.

    – The government has developed some good stadium in urban regions but the situation is very poor in rural regions.
    – In some place of India sports is not considered a lucrative career option in our country.
    – There is a dearth of good-quality sporting infrastructure available across the country. – Social and economic inequalities have a negative impact on the Indian sport.
    – Compared to other development and developing countries, allocation of financial resources is meager in India.

    Sports persons should be supported from the training stage. Schools should be setup and sports also be a part of our education system. And underdeveloped Indian sports should be commercialized. These are some initiatives from which we encourage 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. Day by day India made its identification among the world ranking sports. Players like Saina Nehwal, Abhinav Bindra, Mary Kom, Sakshi Malik, Sania Mirza, Neeraj Chopra (who has bagged the first-ever gold medal in athletics for India in the Olympics), had proved the strength of India at International events and inspired others.
    If we talk about opportunities many things have inspired one to go for them as –
    *Awards and trophies are given in every sports activity to boost their morale.
    *Sports Industries is established to give more opportunities for the desirous.
    *Job opportunities are also increased.
    *Government, as well as many NGOs, are taking big initiatives for this. As Khelo India youth games were introduced which turned out to be a great success as we got a lot of new talents in different sports which shows that the future of sports is quite bright in India.

    But it also faces many challenges –

    * Due to lack of good management of sports in college, school and villages, children’s interest in sports is affected.
    *Lack of funds, skilled coaches, and infrastructure.
    *Lack of awareness, most of the parents do not support their children.
    * Lack of awareness in sports other than Cricket.
    *Financial Problem: Sports Authority should lower down the fees or provide some discounts for the lower class because due to the financial problem we often lose good players.
    So, Indian sports will be bright and glowing in future days by proper infrastructure, appropriate guidance, and giving equal importance.
