Squash – A Suppressed Sport (Sports)


Squash – A Suppressed Sport




Aurangabad, March 10, 2018: Several tries have been given to bring ‘Squash’ sport as an official ‘Olympics’ sport but has been always rejected. Supporters of sport continue to register applications to include it in the Olympics sport. Though, people have limited the game for certain standard of people, it has slowly started gaining popularity all around the world.

This sport is played in a 4 walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. It is meant for 2 players or 4 players where players strike the ball after one another. ‘World Squash Federation’ is the highest governing body in world for the sport and is recognised by ‘International Olympic Committee’. India’s governing body for the same sport is ‘Squash Rackets Federation of India’. In spite of the sport not so popular in the country, its men team has participated in quarter finals for 3 times in ‘World Team Squash Championship’.

“The squash was invented in a jail by a person who used to live alone for the whole day. He started playing this game to release tension and slowly, people got to know about the game and gradually became a wide-spread sport around the world. The acquitted was a ‘Pakistani’ person who was in jail.” Said Rajesh Bhatia, a local squash player. He also explained the rules of the game and said that the game usually is of 11 points. It is also played for 9 points and 15 points respectively in different areas of the world. Shankar Patil, another local squash player said that the mind-set regarding this sport has been set in a wrong way and it is usually believed that this sport is played only by people of higher class and not by other people. Continuing, Shankar said,” This sport is fun to play and should be promoted in schools and colleges as a part of physical activity as it really keeps people fit.”

Squash is a sport that is under-looked in the society and mostly people when asked about it are unaware of any sport as such. Suppression of sport should be fought against and people should help promote the sport on a larger scale. Youths should know about the sport as to add a field in their list to excel in. It is the responsibility of people that the sport ‘Squash’ should not get squashed under the effect of digital gaming or so called digitalisation.

“Mom and dad only send us to beg and bring money”: Child Beggars

Vadodara, January 18, 2018: Child beggars have increased in the society and should now be looked upon as the parents who are responsible for the nourishment of children are themselves sending them for begging and bringing money at home.
“My name is Shiv. I am 12 years old and I have a sister of 9 years old. We beg daily from morning to evening and then we go back home at night. My dad is addicted to alcohol and my mom doesn’t care much about us.” Said one of the child beggars. Shiv said that his place for begging was fixed and he never thought about changing it because he used to earn the highest amount of money from that particular area. Continuing he said,” I have no shame in begging because my mom told me that it is okay to beg in families like ours. I don’t understand much about whatever she talks but many a times, she cries a lot and my father doesn’t even look at her.”
