Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore yesterday asked the Indian athletes and officials, who are part of the Asian Games contingent, to behave responsibly on and off the field during the mega sporting event starting next week in Indonesia.

India is sending a 800-plus contingent, including 572 athletes, to the Asian Games, to be held from August 18 to September 2 in the Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang. "It is a matter of great pride that you [athletes] are representing the country in the Games. When you take part in the Games and when you stay in the Games Village, you will lose your individual identity and your identity there is just one name, that is India. Whatever you do on the field and off the field, please remember that you have to act with responsibility," Rathore said at the send-off ceremony.
