SPORTS, LOVE & PEACE

sports & peace.jpg
Can sports integrate the world, communities, belief & religion together?

Sports is a perfect remedy to ease out tension, anxiety and infuse life with fun and energy. At grassroots or community level sports creates an ecosystem to develop human being and nurture them with quality of sportsmanship. Sportsmanship teaches ethos of good sports where there is a good winner and good loser. It teaches virtues of fairness, courage, self control and persistence which are important elements of living good life and respecting other lives.

A childhood is the perfect age to teach qualities of good sports so that at stage of adulthood they learn to ‘Let it Go’ at times when rage, anger & hunger for power overwhelms them.

Sports as a non verbal communication is considered to be one of the effective tool for transformative impact and bringing out youth who may have grown up in an environment of hate and intolerance.

It is a universal language, a powerful tool to promote peace, tolerance and understanding by bringing together people across boundaries, culture and religions.

We should encourage sports and GSI promotes sports by complying not only with local but international regulations and the product performance stays on par with the ever changing competitive landscape of the sports manufacturing industry.

50 SHADES OF PLASTIC

“Beauty of plastic products lies in age & price.”

color_pilesLG

It’s been more than 25 years that I am associated with sports industry. I have witnessed market demands drifting from wooden to plastic industry.

When I began my journey with Sports Goods Manufacturing Industry, the only goods that were demanded by Buying houses or Client’s in India or Overseas Market was wooden, as I was dealing with more of Carrom Boards & Cricket Bat. Soon I realized that future lies in plastic goods due to its ergonomic properties. Gradually an infant plastic industry turned into mammoth share of the market.

Plastic offers broad spectrum of quality & price that gives tailored product to fit in demands of each client. Logistic cost was an inevitable burden on any product price, that has came down competitively for plastic goods. Manufacturer’s job is made easy with limitless application from single mould of the item.

Phthalate-freeHowever, plastic seems useful material but it has dangerous strings attached to it. The extent of exploitation of plastic is unimaginable and never ending.  It is our social & ethical responsibility to be careful with type of plastic raw material which we use in making goods for consumer.

(Garg Sports International is expert in plastic products and uses raw material LDPE, HDPE, PP & PVC.)

what's it about“Nature deficit disorder” the condition of being disconnected or separated from nature and the natural world. This disorder conveys the condition of today’s generation who lack personal connection to nature. Reason behind is home based leisure technology. This technology is expensive and brings home different disorders when dependent on it for a longer run. It is also an aggravating reason, why we see children spending less and lesser time in outdoor activities.
