It is observed that youth is addicted to social media and online games like PUBG and they are not aware to the outdoor games. The theme was planned to aware children about outdoor games and its uses for our physical health and fitness.
Outdoor desi games like langdi, marbles, flying kite, and lingorcha etc. are very important for our fitness. While playing these games helps us to boost our immunity power and stamina, which is essential for our physical health and fitness.
Addiction to social media and online games will cause harmful side effects on our health like mentally imbalance, neglecting of studies and outdoor games, less sleep, bad academic score and loss of appetite.

But early all the household work was done by hands, less facilities were available and due to this our physical activity health were fit.
The motive of this theme is to aware children and women about the importance of their physical fitness and health through playing various outdoor games and preforming physical activities.
