Hats off To Chak De

Ever since I got into
a couple of years back, I have become fascinated with sports,
especially because it is so character-building. For example, one of
the things I’ve learnt (the hard way) is team spirit, both in trekking
as a group and in running (which, in my opinion, was one of the
reasons that lead to ion).

I think every child should be compulsorily part of a sports team,
whether it is cricket, badminton, track team or chess.

I never imagined that Bollywood can produce a good sports movie, but
I’m happy to be proven wrong.

“Chak De! India” is a very good movie. Go watch it.


“Run and become. Become and run. Run to succeed in the outer world.
Become to proceed in the inner world.”

  1. HI Swaroop,

    “I think every child should be compulsorily part of a sports team”

    Forcing a child to do something he/she doesn’t want to is not correct. If a child shows interest in sports then I think all encouragement needs to be provided.


  2. @Swaroop: Would you like it if someone did the thinking for you? Imposed their will on you? A little bit of persuading children to study may be required so that they don’t fail, however living their life for them is not correct.

  3. @Mahesh: Whatever you just said applies to sports also. A little bit of persuading for children to play sports may also be required to teach them life lessons. For example, it teaches team work.

  4. really this movie is full of enjoyment as well as its a great leasson fo any team who who don’t have as much confidence, and its a great example of team-building…………
