Sports as a HR/Community Development tool?!
Sports demonstrates an excellent coordination between the brain and body wherein the brain formulates the winning strategy and the body hustle to execute it, on the other hand, sports do impact on the career and health of a Human.Better brain & body coordination and quality health developed over the years of training, High Emotional Quotient, Life Skills & competitive spirit developed through the experience he or she gained participating in the competitions in the tender age and the “Champions” attitude they possess making them better than those non-sporting persons.

Unlike few other social impact tools, Sports create a ripple impact. The ripple effect of one athlete’s success and their handwork will have a lasting impact impressing the new generations of athletes to take up sports because of its incentives. Even if one athlete performs, the results impact 10 of his peers and eventually inspiring 50, 500, 5000. Refer the recent case of
PV Sindhu, the silver medal at Rio Olympics 2016, its overall impact on
millions and its boost to badminton, The demand of the sport has exponentially increased giving scope for new business opportunities in
form of academies producing more talent and also contributing to the
recreation & well being of fellow citizens.
Scope in Rural:
“India lives in villages” were the golden words of Mahatma Gandhi many decades ago.Ironically after almost 50 years the data does not seem to disagree. Today a majority of the Indian population still live in the villages. Though there is substantial migration from rural to urban areas in India, still almost 68% of India continues to live in rural areas. The socio-economic census data (2011) released very recently said that almost 73% of the households were in rural areas. On the contrary, India's vision today is highly urban centric. Cities are tipped to be the catalysts of growth in the future. It is noted that the agriculture and allied services contribution to the GDP of the nation has reduced considerably from 51.88% in 1950 to 13.94% in 2013. The World Bank data on value added by agriculture (% of GDP) data does not seem to disagree. From a 42.56 in 1960 it has dropped to a meagre 16.95 in 2014. Given that almost 70% of the population lives in rural areas and about 50% of the overall labour force is still dependant on agriculture, this situation is definitely not sustainable.
Since India's Independence, Urban & Rural difference has been one such major obstacle in growth. While the urban areas with all the amenities getting richer contributing more to India's GDP, the rural areas who often depends on Agriculture due to the absence of the education, healthcare and other required amenities fall behind.
As mentioned above, by facilitating sports in rural, we can help children between 4-14 years age equip employable skills, daily exercise & workout help them fight obesity & other ill-health issues, providing them guidance on nutrition can also solve their healthcare chaos and their achievement in sports can help them grab a job in sports quota in defence & police. To facilitate the same, we hire coaches giving senior players livelihood, hence generating Employment.
Promising Results in Past:

With huge empty spaces available, The rural India which covers more than 95% of India can create talent pool. To bridge the gap in current sporting scenario all we need is to setup basic infrastructure & hire a trainer to promote sports.
