Sports and games are an integral part of our life and have become a way of life for a healthy and fit India. It plays a pivotal role in the making up of an athlete. Where else can a young impressionable youth learn values like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, sacrifice and accountability and to remain fit? On every 29th August, National Sport Day is celebrated as a tribute to the legendary hockey player Major Dhyan Chand, who won the gold medal in Olympics for India in 1928, 1932 and 1936. In India and world of hockey, Dhyan Chand is a legendary figure. The highest award for lifetime’s achievement in sports and games in India is the Dhyan Chand trophy. Education without sports activities is incomplete. Holistic development of a student is possible only when he/she is physically fit and emotionally balanced.
This auspicious day was celebrated to spread awareness on the importance of sports and physical activities in every individual’s life. Sports and games offer children a change from the monotony of daily life. It is also a useful means of entertainment and physical activity for them. Today, after a long time, our students involved themselves in sports activities. On the occasion of National Sports Day, various activities were designed by physical educators.
Activities like Dose ball, Yoga, 50 metres Running, Tug-of-war, 1-min skipping games were organized as a part of the celebration for students, who enthusiastically participated with a lot of excitement and vigour in all activities. It was fortunate that in this rainy season with much humidity, students played under black clouds. Cool air made the sports zeal very pleasant and high. The event went on around for 2 hours. We salute all those who represent India in various sporting events and activities. Their hard work and resolve has led to several milestones for many people interested in sports.
