students a brief glance of different sports of different countries i.e. India
(chess), South Korea (Taekwondo), Bangladesh (Kabaddi), Iceland (Handball),
Nepal (Volley ball) while enabling them to research and write a picture essay

had very less information about the players of other countries. To understand
