Sports are emerging as a galvanizer to channelize the talent of youth in different directions.
J&K administrations have been focusing on the talent of youth and have connected all the youth in the rural areas with different sports activities.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha and an inter university championship function said that sports as soft power have an important role in bringing regions, nations, and diverse cultures together. As a social enterprise, sports give paramount importance to equality, economic development that benefits the entire community.
Highlighting the vital importance of sports in the globalized world he said: “Sports can be instruments of change in the world and the change starts with accepting the challenge”.
My mantra for the budding sportspersons is to stop doubting yourself and go after what you really want in life with complete dedication. With firm determination, hard work, and faith, players can chart their own future.
On the transformation taking place in the sporting ecosystem, he said, under the guidance of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, India is emerging as a formidable sporting power. Our focus is on sustainable development of sports, the Lt Governor added.
