Often students who are very fond of reading books are labelled by their comrades as bookworms. Those disparagements generally come from the mouths of students who consider themselves as being‟ gamesters‟. Boys who shine in athletics or in the playing of some game- particularly cricket, consider that the games field is a better or nobler arena for their activities and the expenditure of their energies than the classroom or the reading desk. The idea is born out of an inferiority complex inherent in the „games- minded‟ students who actually envy their fellow who shine academically. Academic honours have a glamour which is unique. It is not to be denied that the playing of games is a worthy activity; it is worthy in the sense that the team spirit can be encouraged in the individual only if he has learnt to participate in the playing of games. It is also true that the player does much for society and for his country on the playing field. It is true that the feeling of co-operation can be cultivated in a person only through group activity. But studies should not be sacrificed in order that students devote their time only to the playing of games. It is my observation that those boys who become obsessed with the playing, particularly of cricket, begin to ignore their studies and then their academic ability suffers, as it must. Let each type of activity have its own place in our daily round and then only will the balanced division of interests produce the individual with a proper perspective of things.
Then will we have the student who is both academically good and who can hold his own on the games field. That is the personality that we want our educational system to produce.
