New Delhi [India], May 25 (ANI/PNN): In India, a country where there is a lack of encouragement toward a sports-oriented mindset from families because of a traditional way of living, we observe the role of women in sports has been quite appreciable, and we celebrate it as well.
They have combated all odds and conquered challenges to play for the nation. Some women have taken firm pathways, struggled hard and stood for the country internationally. Some got noticed and well recognized, like P.T. Usha, Saina Nehwal, Mary Kom, and Sania Mirza. Still, others were lost in the abyss as they never got the motivation to walk their dreams or recognition for turning them into a reality.
There remains a dire need to bring women's sports to its long waited glory, which can be fully achieved only by demolishing its stigmas, inculcating a level playing field for women and availing greater opportunities for them.
The out-and-out inclusion of women in sports is essential as sports have been one of the most important socio-cultural learning experiences for aeons. To catapult women's sports to their glory, we have to address some burning issues like women facing gender parity, fewer media coverage and lower pay which is prevalent globally.
With numerous initiatives for women being rolled out by the government under 'Khelo India', there has also been a surge of support from the private sector. Many sports academies and sports intuitions are stepping up their game for the greater inclusion of women in sports. And one such name has become a flag bearer for fostering women's sports by imparting world-class training in over 35 Sports - Ramagya Sports Academy, one of the top sports academies in India.
