Fitness has become a national concern. Health problems are rising to epidemic proportions. Despite advances in technology and medicine, the quality of life leaves much to be desired. In addition to early deaths, temporary and chronic illness and disabilities sap the strength and vitality of our nation. Crores and crores of rupees are spent in hospital and medical care. Much of this tragic draining of our human and economic resources is the result of factors that require a broader look at physical fitness and methods for achieving it.
