Mam I would like to give a speech on a topic games and sports. Games and sports keep one physically and mentally fit. They keep one away from diseases relating to heart, obesity, mental stress and sleeplessness. Games are very essential for students but they are neglected in schools. Even parents do not have high opinion about games and they want their children to devote more time to studies. India lacks funds, and proper training facilities are not provided to the players. We all are familiar with the maxim ‘Health is wealth’. According to the World Health Organization, ‘Health is a state of complete physical and the absence of disease.’ Academics serve the purpose of nourishing the mind. But a healthy mind resides in a healthy body. One can develop and maintain a healthy body by actively participating in games and sports. Games keep our body alert, active, youthful and energetic. They instill in us a spirit of adventure. Games increase the circulation of blood, boost metabolism, burn calories and improve the respiration and digestive system. While playing games various exercises are performed automatically and one need not join a gymnasium to exercise. There are two types of games. Indoor Games and Outdoor games. Indoor Games are the games which are played inside home like chess , carom board, Table tennis, cards etc. Outdoor Games are the games which are played outside the home like cricket , football, volley ball, hockey etc. Games keep our mind exercising and healthy. At last I would like to conclude my speech by telling that  Keep Playing Games and make your Body Healthy and fit both mentally and physically. Thank you mam!
