While I was teaching I would often find children very reluctant to play games on the field, they would discuss games like FIFA 1, 2 and so many .This led me to believe that they love football and would love to play the game. But, to my surprise they were discussing a game on the computer. During games period I would find myself listening to all kind of reasons for not going to play, some would say we would like to read as exams are near or we want to go to the library for internet surfing or please finish some chapter. This led me to wonder what happened to playing games, when was the last time I saw any child play gully cricket and break some poor blokes window panes or some aunties pot of plants? I started observing children, most of them are watch cricket avidly on the Telly, they even play cricket???? On the computer of course. They love to play Tennis, Cricket, and Football all on the computer. Has technical advancement in someway the cause of our children not indulging in physical games. I have also noticed the schools of today, they boast a big building called class rooms—what about the play ground? What games do the school motivate the children to play? <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1lace>Bangalore</st1lace></st1:City> has a huge number of schools. It is a thriving business, have a big land, build a huge building put in a couple of desks and chairs and board and voila you have a school, unregistered, registered no problem, we give education in English medium, if you are looking for a bit of sophistication no problem again we put in the name International in the end of the School name, and where may I ask is the play ground the automatic answer is “it is coming up very soon”, how soon we never know. The regular child’s schedule is get up, wash up, eat breakfast (if possible because school van is waiting) go to school, come home, watch TV, do home work, go to tuition class for maths, go to tuition class for Hindi or any other language as the case may be, come home do the tuition home work and have dinner, go to sleep. Where in this schedule do we see play. Even in Summer I find children enrolling themselves in summer camps that schools provide to do Painting or Drawing or essay writing, quiz, story telling what about plain old games , what about screaming, yelling, shouting….don’t people need to know that the holidays are here .
