Playing Football in School – My story of a short career.

We are seeing a surge in the football culture in our country. Not a long time ago you would find it difficult to find people, other than a select few, who genuinely knew every nook and corner of the football world. My love for football is not only restricted to watching and reading about it but also to the extent of playing it day in day out till my legs gave up. Living in two of the metropolitans of our country, New Delhi and Hyderabad, I got quite few opportunities to play football at a better level than just kicking the ball around. I am so influenced by football that I associate myself with people who don’t breathe air but football. I know it can difficult being that way but that what football is to me. read more

Narcotics in Sports | Doping

We say that one must be fair in sports, but how fair does one really play? ‘Doping’ refers to the use of banned performance-enhancing drugs by sportsmen. This is not a new culture but something which has its roots way back in history. In ancient Rome, chariot race became a really trendy sport, to get an edge the participants used to consume drinks made up of herbs which gave them extra strength. The usage of drugs and steroids is considered to be unethical by many organizations as it gives an upper hand to the player who has consumed it and a disadvantage for others. It is considered to be hampering with the ‘’spirit of sports’’. International Olympic Committee has been regulating the use of stimulants to avoid any health risks and inequality of opportunity for other players. read more
