Zeal is like a determined image of relentless flying in the confident eyes of an infancy bird. You can bind it for a moment but certainly it can never be tied into shackles for a lifetime.
Physical education is a part of general education and it is an education to prepare the student to be healthy and robust. Generally we imagine that physical education is meant only for developing the person’s physique i.e. perfect shape of the body. But the physical education is much beyond this. It is meant to develop knowledge of an individual to develop the physical wellbeing and prevent physical diseases as well as mental problems and maintain a good personality. It can help to cut unwanted fat and make the body sculpt. It also deals with exercises to prevent many mental problems like stress, anxiety, anger etc., through the knowledge of Yoga. The motto of physical education is to inculcate this all people and create a disease free nation.
Regular exercise is a critical part of staying healthy. People who are active live longer and feel better. Physical Activity helps you to maintain good health; physically fit and mentally healthy. Physical activity becomes an outlet for releasing tension and anxiety, and facilitates emotional stability. In order to develop integrated personality among students, the College provides facilities for co-curricular and extra-curricular activities such as sports and games.
