Ask your children what sport they'd like to try, and try to find a way to make it happen. Get inspired as parents -- model an active lifestyle yourself and encourage your children to get active. The Olympics are a 4-year energizing catalyst to the imperative that we need to support this nation's children to get inspired and to get active.
What Olympic athletes also have in common, whether or not they win medals, is passion, desire, ambition, hunger, determination, confidence and grit. They're not afraid to dream big... Why, then, do so many of us limit ourselves, hold ourselves back, restrict ourselves to "modest" goals -- only to look back at our lives and wonder what might have been?

Balancing on a self-propelled, two-wheeled mechanism is not everyone's cup of tea. Those who do it, though, agree that it's one of the most exciting experiences. Cycling is an activity that has significant social, economical and health benefits. And with all the new technologies available, it's only getting better.
I'm a happily married Tamil man sharing my insights in terms of where I think Tamil singles will have the most luck with meeting other Tamil singles. This list was a result of recent discussions I've had with single friends. By discussion, I mean more of a debate with me trying to get them to think beyond the standard club or bar/lounge.
