The launch of the movement was at a ceremony held in New Delhi to commemorate the National Sports Day. Here, we have put together two essays on Fit India School in English for the benefit of primary and secondary school children. We also have a bonus essay on Fit India Movement at the end of this page. The Fit India Program is a unique initiative from the Central government to encourage Indians to lead a healthier lifestyle and understand the importance of staying fit through physical activity. The Fit India School rating system will improve the visibility of schools at a national level. This day has been observed as National Sports Day throughout the country to commemorate the birth anniversary of former hockey player, Major Dhyan Chand.
There is a proverb ; Healthy body has healthy Mind. As we have observed that we are getting more and more busy in our daily life. We hardly have time to exercise or we hardy walk around even meter in a single day. This human laziness is increasing many problems like heart attack, diabetes, fatigue, strain etc. PM Modi has addressed the gathering on this occasion and urged citizens to do exercise on daily basis.
