My Favourite Game
Various types of games are played in our country. We can divide them into two types – indoor and outdoor games. Chess, chauper, cards, ludo, carom etc. are indoor games. Hockey, football, cricket , basket- ball, tennis, badminton etc. are outdoor and foreign games. Kabaddi , hunting, horse riding, wrestling, swimming , cock- fighting, ball fighting , tonga-race etc. are long outdoor games but they are Indian ones. Some games are played in towns and some are popular among the villagers. Hockey, football and cricket are very popular in towns.
I am a good player. Hence I take part in all the outdoor games. Each boy has his own choice. Some like hockey, other like football, while many others consider cricket to be their best game. The game which I like most is football.
I prefer football to any other game. It can easily explained. The main object of all games is to give us some exercise. This is one reason why football is my favourite game. It helps our body to grow. It brings a sense of discipline and a habit of endurance in us. A good football player is sure to succeed in any walk of life. He can make himself a great soldier to defend his country. He can be a clever statesman to run the government.
There is no other game which gives hard exercise? Surely none other except hockey. But hockey carries many risks for the life of a player. It also makes the player quarrelsome. Often he uses sticks as his weapon.
Another reason of my choice is that it is very economical. It does not require costly equipment. A ball and a well leveled ground is all that is required to start our game. And then it is easy to pick up its rules. We do not require any special coach for it is learnt so easily by boys that they begun to play it in a very young age. They dare not to play hockey or cricket.
Like hockey or cricket, football is played by two teams of eleven boys. A team consists of five forwards, three half backs, two full backs and one goalkeeper. The player kicks the ball with his feet. But he may touch it with any other part except with his hands. The goalkeeper, however, can use his hands as well. A player may be tempted to push an opponent to go far ahead of the ball near the opposite goal. So pushing and off side are regarded as a foul play. The penalty for a fouled is kick by a player of the opposite team. The fewer fouls you make, the more chances you have to win the game.
The game of football give us good exercise. We have to be vigilant and alert. It encourages team spirit. Educational institutions should attach a great importance to games and sports. game should be made compulsory in all schools and colleges and students should be encouraged to take part in them. They make them sound be encouraged to take part in them. They make them sound physically and mentally. So it is very essential for a student to take part in games.

There are two kinds of games, outdoor games that are played on vast fields, and indoor games that are played in the four walls of the home or classroom.
I have tried my hands on several games, both indoor and outdoor. In school I play football, volley ball, table tennis and badminton. However, in the passage of some time, after playing all these games, I have developed a special liking for badminton. By now, this game of badminton has become my favourite game.
Badminton has become my favourite game especially because it does not involve a large team. It can be managed more easily than the games with large teams in which adjustment of time becomes a problem quite often. If one player of the large team is absent from the school we cannot play.
This one snag makes me feel that, since collection of the team is a problem, that game becomes a bore instead of a pleasure. Moreover, in the process of time I have noticed to my dismay that, when large teams are involved, there also crop up jealousies, favouritism and politics in the game.
This is another reason I do not like any game that means a large team. This is because as soon as politics comes in the game the very spirit of the game is lost.
In badminton also I prefer singles to doubles. This is because, it is in singles that I really get very good exercise, and if I lose the game, I have no one to blame except myself.
This is one reason why in badminton I feel I keep on improving my game as; I just cannot blame anyone for my defeat in a game. In turn, since I blame myself, I keep on improving the game and thus can aspire to become a really good player at some stage of my career in badminton.
Once my game improves to some level, I desire to become a state level player, and then a national player. If my ambition of becoming a national level player of badminton comes true, I will bring some laurels to my school, my state and then of course to my country.
I am an ardent admirer of Mr. Prakash Padukone, and hope to reach that level in the game. I do wish I could emulate Mr. Padukone and do the game some good, and bring name to myself.
