Directing the concerned departments for immediately starting the renovation works of the park in Sainik Colony, Kavinder said that completion of this park will provide the inhabitants with an encouraging environment to exercise, socialize and will help promote and maintain healthy lifestyles especially for kids and elderly, senior citizens etc. Commenting that parks are a wise community investment, the Speaker said, “in the new age of television and computers, the children are moving towards an unhealthy way of life. “As much as indoor games promote mental growth, the overall development of a child is incomplete without a parallel focus on physical development and regular exposure to natural elements”. With the focused attention of the Government towards development of parks and playgrounds, Kavinder affirmed that exposure to nature improves psychological and social health among children and adults. During the visits to various localities, the people also apprised the Speaker of the problems being faced by them.
