It was a morning during summer break. Young boys were gathering in the park to play friendly soccer game.

Hey, where are you off to?” asked A, juggling a soccer ball,   “join us for a game.”

some other time, late for cricket practice,” answered R, ”besides, cannot have a game with three.”

A cricket camp in a neighboring park has reduced the number of soccer players. A talented kid may land a contract with cricket board and play for state and national level games as well as join professional league. Who knows, with some luck, some may even represent the country.

So many countries play soccer” scoffed A, “need few gears, yet don’t have players!

Can’t blame parents for trying to secure future of kids,” reasoned his friend, “our soccer program is disorganized and players don’t make money.”

In a super competitive world, there does not seem much scope for fun.
