Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore pointed out the value of physical activities in the child s education, he says, Even if they learn nothing, they would have had ponds, plucking and tearing flowers, perpetrating thousand and one mischief on Mother Nature, they would have obtained the nourishment of the body, happiness of mind and the satisfaction of the natural impulses of childhood.
Physical education is an indispensable area of education and as it contributes to the health, to the social, emotional and mental development of an individual. In the modern hi-tech society we cannot undermine the relationship between general education and physical education. These are complementary and supplementary to each other. Their aims and objectives lead towards common goal - the all round development of personality i.e. physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual development, thus enabling the man to lead enriched, abundant and harmonious life. Therefore, physical education is an integral part of general education and their relationship cannot be ignored. They are inter-related and inter-dependent and constitute an indivisible whole.

         Gandhi Ji stated that "True education is that which draws out and stimulates the spiritual, intellectual, and physical faculties of the children."
