K(Hello) India! – Start of a New Sporting Era?

The Khelo India Scheme, launched by Sports Minister Vijay Goel in 2017, aims to inculcate a culture of sports among the youth in rural areas of the country. By launching competitions and creating scholarships, Khelo India is a response to the dearth of sporting infrastructure and lack of an organization system within the sports sector. On account of it being completely funded by the central government, the scheme gives both sportsmen and MPs an incentive to participate, with Rs. 500 crore already invested for 2017-2018, a two-fold increase from 2012. With Khelo India already subsuming other similar schemes, can the government maintain their funding and dedication towards this massive push for improving the conditions of sports, or will the dream of becoming a powerful sporting nation remain just that?
