Sports make people cross cultural barriers and speak a language that is understood by all.The World Sports Congress, held in New Delhi, emphasised that sports could play a major role in promoting and propagating peace, provided one understood the spirit of global participation and the philosophy of sports.This philosophy of sports is based on the assumption that a “game will be played in the spirit of the game”. Rules of decency and decorum will on no account be violated by all those related to sports.
