Khelo India is an initiative taken by Government as a national programme for development of sports in India. On Monday, sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said that the government is trying to organize its system of recognizing the coaches of medalists in bigger events like Olympics, Asian Games and Commonwealth Games.
The plan is to distribute the reward money among all the coaches. The Government is looking for starting a scheme where 20% reward money goes to the medalist’s coach at the initial level and 30 per cent to the money to be given to the developmental coach. Prior to this scheme the developmental coach at a higher level used to get all the reward money. The anthem and the mascot for the upcoming Khelo India School Games have been launched. Khelo India School Games is the PM NarendraModi's dream project, which will be held in the Delhi from January 31 to February 8, 2018. The lyrics of the Khelo India anthem is “The 'Khelo India' Anthem - AurKhelnaChahteHain Hum; KhubKheloSaath Me Hain Hum; Hum HumHumHum; Khel Me Hi MastiHai; KhelTandoorstiHai; Khel Se AbaadHonge Hum; AgeyBadnaChahteHai Hum.” The anthem focuses on brotherhood, equality and solidarity through sports.
