In an elaborate presentation at Maidan Summit 2011, Mr Chandramohan expressed his concern over the lack of a sport culture in India, which is the most youthful nation in the world. He attributed this to reasons like lack of adequate investment in sports, a lack of interest from the states, inadequate infrastructure and training facilities, a weak federal structure of sports bodies, a lack of transparency and accountability in their functioning, an absence of a maintenance plan for existing infrastructure, the erosion of playfields in villages and a degradation of open playfields in urban areas. All this is compounded by an improper or no evaluation of schemes.
Taking the audience through a presentation on the state of affairs of sport in the entire country, Mr Chandramohan linked sport to the personality development of India’s youth. He recommended a dedicated investment in physical education, advocating fitness to be a part of human resource development, and an immediate need for a young country like India.
