Although with the growth of modern technology many previous laws have become rather redundant yet the infinite human inglinity to exploit the loop-holes in the formulated rules and laws has made their formulation almost a continuous process. No matter how fast one tries to walk abreast with the latest sets of rules some obsolescence invariably creeps in. So while it can't be said that all the rules and the laws of the games and sports described in the book are the latest, it can be proudly claimed that it covers most of the major innovations or changes that have appeared in the rules.As for the techniques of the various games included in the book, the attempt has been made to dwell only on the basics and not on their names - for there is no end to them. Of course, some of the names have also been illustrated in order to help the reader comprehend other similar variations. The paucity of the space forced this strategy to be adopted, otherwise this book would have become a tone of gargantuan proportions. The emphasis has only been on selecting the basic techniques which are of supreme importance to a particular gameAs far as the selection of the games and sports in this book is concerned the basic criterion has been their popularity as also their availability in this part of the world. We have slummed those games whose mere paraphernalia would cost the player a couple of games apart from their arena's scores availability. We have .tried to cater to the taste of almost all the categories of the sports loving persons. So if you have the Lords' first choice-Cricket, Tennis or Golf - you also find the popular games of the rural origin like Kabaddi and Kho-Kho, besides various aquatic and athletic games. Certain games like Judo and Kung-fu whose practical importance in the violence-prone would can't be denied have been especially dealt with. In fact the book has been devised keeping the foreknowledge of the reader in view. That is why some lesson known games have been dealt with at length while some will known games and sports have been described in brief.How far have we succeeded in our attempt is what our readers would decide. But we can make one bold claim right now. This book might not make many Olympians but most certainly this would make many sports lovers appreciate their favourite games much better than they ever did before.Lastly, the author conveys his deep gratitude to Chaudhary Sahib and Rajneesh ji of the Goodwill Publishing House, who provided him all help to compile this book.
