Question 32.
What is the eight-fold path explained in yogasutras?
Write some of the benefits of Dhouti and Basti. [5]
Patanjali, the first teacher of Yoga, described eight elements of yoga in yogasutras. These are called eight-fold paths or eight steps through which ultimate goal of yoga can be achieved i.e., union of our soul to the supreme soul.

These eight elements of yoga are:
(i) Yama
(ii) Niyama
(iii) Asana
(iv) Pratyahara
(v) Dharana
(vi) Dhyana
(vii) Pranayama
(viii) Samadhi

These are explained below:
Yama and Niyama: These are initial sets of principles that are concerned with our conduct in personal and social life. These are related to ethics and values.

Asana: The term asana means sitting in a particular posture, which is comfortable and which could be maintained steadily for a long time. Asana gives stability and comfort, both at the physical and mental levels.

Pratyahara: Yogic practice of Pratyahara means the withdrawal of senses from sense organs in order to control mind. In pratyahara, the awareness about the external surrounding is withdrawn and is taken to inside. Introspection, and studying good books are some practices which can help in pratyahara.

Dharana: Dharana is the concentration of the mind. If the scattered mind is brought under control and set to the focal point, concentration is said to be achieved. The focal point can be in the centre of the forehead on level with a pointed soothing light at a distance.

Dhyana: Dhyana is one of the eight limbs of classical yoga. It is the penultimate limb, which leads to self absorption. Dhyana is a relaxation practice which induces relaxation in the body and mind. In Dhyana, concentration is focused for a long time on a single object like, breath, tip of the nose, etc. Dhyana is a relaxing practice; it develops a sense of well-being in the person.

Pranayama: Pranayama consists of breathing techniques which are related to the control of breath or respiratory process. Pranayama, also known as yogic breathing, involves the conscious manipulation of our breathing pattern. The health of the respiratory system depends upon the quality as well as the quantity of air inhaled by the person.

It also depends on the rhythm and completeness of the breathing. Through pranayama, a practitioner advantageously works with the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems which bring about emotional stability and peace of mind. Pranayama has three phases known as puraka, rechaka and kumbhaka. Puraka is the controlled inhalation; rechaka is controlled exhalation and kumbhaka is controlled retention of breath.

Samadhi: When the mind is completely absorbed in one object of meditation, it is termed as samadhi. The mind identifies itself with the object of meditation.


Dhouti Benefits:
(i) Dhoutis are particularly beneficial in case of constipation, gastritis, dyspepsia, indispositions of the stomach and spleen, phlegm and bile disorders.
(ii) Dhoutis also increase digestive fire, improve kidney functioning and invigorate the liver by extricating parasites from within the system.
(iii) People suffering from obesity and those of a flabby and phlegmatic constitution will find these kriyas especially beneficial.

Basti Benefits:
(i) It cures pleeha, urinary disorders, gulma, myalga, dropsy, disorders of digestion, diseases of the spleen and bowels, diseases arising from the excess of wind, bile and phlegm.
(ii) By practicing Basti with water, the Dhatus, the Indriyas and the mind become calm.
(iii) It gives glow and tone to the body and increases the appetite. All the disorders disappear

Question 33.
Write a detailed note on some organisations promoting adaptive sports. [5]
Some organisations promoting adaptive sports are:

Special Olympics Bharat: Special Olympics Bharat is a National Sports Federation registered in 2001 under the Indian Trust Act, 1882. It is accredited by Special Olympics International to conduct Special Olympics Programs in India. The Government of India has accredited it as a National Sports Federation in the Priority Category, for development of Sports for persons with special needs intellectually. It is the Nodal Agency for the purpose due to national presence and experience, particularly in rural areas that account for around 75% of the population with special needs in India.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with special needs intellectually, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Paralympics: The Paralympic Games are the world’s largest sporting event for people with special needs physically, visually and intellectually. The Paralympic Movement was started by Sir Luding Guttmann and the movement finally developed into Paralympic Games. Guttmann was a firm believer that sports were the most appropriate method of therapy for those who have special needs physically to help them in building physical strength and self-esteem.

In 1948, he organised a sports competition for British World War II veterans, patients with spinal cord injuries. These games were known as the Stoke Mandeville Games and were recognised by International Olympics Association. In 1960, these games were held in Rome after the Rome Olympics. However, they were still known as the Mandeville Games. These games were the first official Paralympic Games. In these games, 400 athletes participated from 23 countries.

After 1960 Paralympic Games, things began to improve and the Paralympic movement continued to grow, modernise and include more and more sports for other differently abled groups also. In 1976 Paralympic Games, events for amputees and visually impaired athletes were organised for the first time. After a gap of a few years, the events for the athletes with cerebral palsy were included in 1980 Paralympic Games. In spite of these improvements, the Paralympic Games were still not considered equal or parallel to the Olympic Games.

There was rapid growth in the Paralympic Movement. In 1980, the first governing body for the Paralympic Movement was formed. It was known as International Coordination Committee of World Sports Organisations for the Disabled (ICC). In 1989, ICC was replaced by International Paralympic Committee (IPC). These games were a great success and boosted the movement’s momentum.

Deaflympics: The Deaflympics (previously called World Games for the Deaf and International Games for the Deaf) are an International Olympic Committee (IOC)-sanctioned event at which deaf athletes compete at an elite level. Unlike the athletes in other IOC-sanctioned events (the Olympics, the Paralympics and the Special Olympics), the Deaflympics cannot be guided by sounds (e.g., the starter’s guns, bullhorn commands or referee whistles).

Question 34.
Write briefly about the principles for development of physical fitness.
Name some warm-up exercises. [5]
Principles of physical fitness: Regular physical fitness exercise is required for an individual to develop and maintain physical fitness and proper growth of the body.

Principles for development of physical fitness:
Specificity: The chosen programme must meet the specific needs of the individual. For example, if speed is desired, speed exercises should be chosen.

Tolerance: Exercise should not be too easy or too difficult to achieve. It should be within the individual’s tolerance capacity. Total body involvement: Exercise programme should be designed in such a way that exercise of every part of the body is done to ensure proportionate body development.

Progressive over-loading: The load of exercise should be increased step by step for the improvement of physical fitness level of an individual. It should be progressively increased from simple to complex keeping in mind the individual’s tolerance capacity.

Age and sex: Physical fitness level varies according to the age and sex. The intensity and volume of fitness work should be planned separately for boys and girls and according to their growth patterns.

Regularity: One has to maintain regularity in order to achieve and maintain physical fitness.

Proper rest and sleep: Insufficient rest and sleep results in fatigue and has a negative effect on regularity and progression. It is suggested that a minimum of 6-8 hours comfortable sleep must be taken in a day.

Warming up: A session of thorough warming up is necessary for participating in any training programme. Warming up prepares muscles and heart for the workout. Warming up generally increases the body temperature before the strenuous workout and prevents muscle injury.

Limbering down: It is also known as ‘cooling down’. Limbering down promotes quicker recovery from fatigue and the individual feels fresh for the next day’s training session.
