Just as the mind is important to help us grow intellectually, our body and physique is necessary to help us maintain our health. One of the easiest way to keep ourselves fit is by delving into sports, be it of any kind. Sports is of undeniable significance in our daily life, as it hones the body just like a good book helps the mind. Indulging ourselves in sports is not only advantageous to our health, but also helps us in leading a more disciplined life. Therefore, by practicing any sport, processional or as a form of leisure activity, we are only going to gain in some way or the other.
When an athlete runs towards the finish line or when a batsman waits patiently to face the ball coming at him at 70 km/h, he/she has only one thing on his/her mind, and that is, to be better than every other player on the field for that one moment. This competitive spirit can be involved only through sports, and it is of utmost value for the development of one’s character. Sports is the lifeblood of life, and it is directly proportional to the essence of a man’s behaviour, and how he leads his life. Physical activities have more to do with the conclusive good traits that are invoked in a man due to practicing a sport, than the winning or losing of the game itself. No matter what the end-result of one particular game, man is always rewarded by playing, it’s a win-win situation ultimately.
Sports is not just important for physical strength it also improves the mental and emotional strength of an individual. This is one of the reason why sports is made compulsory in many of the schools and colleges. Sports should be given as equal priority as education.

Sometimes the God is so unkind and ruthless that most tragic, highly shocking and unfortunately anguishing incidents happen making everybody shell shocked. It’s undoubtedly a hard fact that whoever has taken birth on this earth has to go one day and its a mandatory rule of the Almighty. Some go earlier while some after enjoying the life to the full attaining whatever they’d wished.

But when a person leaves this universe at an adoloscent age while making his or her career as a shining star the tragedy not only catastrophically shocks everyone but also leaves his or her parents and near and dear ones alive for no reason or purpose of life.

I am talking here about one such hugest tragedy of a budding and highly talented prodigy footballer Nitisha Negi who met her last in Australia perhaps two days ago where she had gone to participate on behalf of the Schools Games Federation of India representing our country as one of the players of the India students football team. Because of her inborn talent as a prodigy footballer having won number of awards and felicitations at such a tender age earlier, Nitisha Negi was sent to Australia by the School Games Federation of India to participate in the prestigious Pan Pacific Asian Games where she met with the tragedy at the sea while clicking pictures having got surreptitiously swept away in the sea tides.

The body of late Nitisha Negi, an excellent footbal prodigy will reach Delhi on 16th December, 2017 for cremation. Her body will be kept for ANTIM DARSHAN AND SHRADHANJALI at Garhwal Bhawan on Saurday the 16th, from 5 to 8 PM to be finally consigned to flames. Nitisha’ s untimely tragic demise has sent shock waves in the entire football fraternity of India as well as, amongst the Uttarakhand community globally.

While expressing our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family I on behalf of the Uttarakhand Journalists Forum prray to Almighty to give peace to the pious soul and enough strenghth to the aggrieved family to bear this most irreperable loss. In the meanwhile the union minister of state for textiles and member of parliament from Almora Uttarakhand Ajay Tamta visited the parents at the deceased prodigy’s house and shared the grief with them.

Ajay Tamta assured the aggrieved parents of Nitisha of all possible financial assistence through the Uttarakhand CM’s discreationery fund and stringent action against the officials responsible for their negligence in this shocking episode. He was accompanied by Dr. Vinod Bacheti,Chairman DPMI. Om Shanti
