The importance of sports to remain fit and active cannot be undermined. With so many benefits of taking up a sport, it is vital to promote and provide your kids with ample opportunities from a young age. To ensure this, Dr Arjunsinh Rana has signed an MOU with major sports universities to lead the nation with a notion of fit India. The movement aims to provide ample growth opportunities to children to channelise their interest in sports and get adequate resources to represent their country at international levels.

Dr ArjunSinh Rana is the Vice-Chancellor at the Swarnim Gujarat Sports University, Gandhinagar. He has been a part of this movement to ensure that proper support can be received from the end of the government, which will provide opportunities to many talented players out there who are left behind due to either of the reasons.

Dr Arjunsinh is a person of knowledge and experience. He was honoured with a doctorate in PhD in sports management in the year 2015. His association with Saurashtra Cricket Association has helped him gain experience as a team manager and the Physio/Trainer. His research on the topic, "A Comparative Study Of Leadership Style viz-a-viz Motivation Effect of Indian Cricket Team Captains," under the guidance of Dr Pratapsinh Chauhan. His research was about the formation of test cricket at the international level. Not just this, his research work led him to select 10 out of 31 captains for the Indian test cricket team, which was all done by means of a structured questionnaire prepared by Dr Arjunsinh. From motivation to leadership style, he covered it all. The response is recorded to help conduct a hypothesis test that gave a proper visualisation of what separates the captains from the team's players.

He says, "It is never easy to do all such tasks, but representing India requires proper leadership and motivation at the international level. So, efficiency was an atmosphere requirement and to help select the best. The organisation depended on me. All I did was use my experience of 23 years and give my best." Because of this motivation and dedication, Dr Arjunsinh was also appointed as the Physio/Trainer (Ex) for the Indian Senior/Junior National Cricket Team at BCCI and further as the manager at ICC T20 Cricket World Cup. The best part is that he always came out as a shining star no matter what role he was given.

From training and working with renowned cricketers including Saurav Ganguly, Parthiv Patel, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli, etc., his opportunities have been quite enough. With all the experience that he has gained, he is working towards creating opportunities for the unseen talents that are to be brought ahead and given a chance to represent themselves and represent their country at both national and international levels. This is one of the major reasons why Dr Arjunsinh has been spreading the movement of Fit India by signing an MOU with different sport universities from around India.

Apart from the above, Dr Arjunsinh got his Doctorate In Physical Education & Sports and Doctorate in Sports Management (FDP IIM Ahmedabad). He has also been the Nodal Officer/Brand Ambassador of FIT India Movement, Gujarat. By all means, he has been working towards promoting fitness and ensuring to make Indians healthy, and this movement has been working in support of the government. He wants to see the fitness youth club formed at all the school and college levels. His aim has also been to provide a detailed program of the colleges from the end of the government. All of this is to be done to ensure that India can become a sporting power in the coming years, and considering the successes received at the Olympics and Paralympics, it will start to change the mindset of the people that can all help in achieving greater heights.

"Seriousness is what was needed, and seriousness is what has been brought in. Every child should play not just to play but to stay healthy and fit," says Dr Arjunsinh.

Dr Arjunsinh has the aim of creating a new and fit India. He aims to bring in the best and work towards the same. Because of his efforts, a lot of changes have been seen in sports, and the government seems to be supporting the same too. These are the kind of leaders India needs, and for a long, he has been working towards being that person. Under his Dr Arjunsinh Rana Sports Foundation, he has distributed free Corona and Rashan Kit and Blood Donation camps. He also encourages kids in rural areas by distributing Sports. He is quite a responsible person, and with the amount of awareness he has been spreading about fitness and health, a lot of change is expected in upcoming times.
