Earlier this morning, PM Modi said the awareness regarding sports and fitness is rising among Indians and it was evident at the Tokyo Olympics where the country ended with its highest ever medal haul – one gold, two silver and three bronze.

“There was a time when sports wasn’t considered a part of the mainstream. Parents used to tell children that they would spoil their life if they kept playing. Now, awareness regarding sports & fitness has come within the country. We have experienced this in Olympics this time,” he said.
