Why India is not coming up in sports?India is a very highly populated country. The youth in India is not inclined towards sports. Except in cricket, we are not showing any merit in other games or sports. Our medal tally and performance in the Olympics is an indication of our poor performance in sports.
Indian youth are inclined more towards doing a professional course and then getting good employment. The parents also encourage their kids towards such goal only. This may be the main reason for this I feel.
In addition to the above, there are many other reasons. Mismanagement and corrupt practices by the authorities involved may be demotivating the talented players and they are not able to perform at the required level.
There may be problems like lack of infrastructure, very little fund allocation for sports development etc. The government should think about this and come out with a plan to improve the capability of the country in the arena of sports.
