Health includes physical as well as mental aspects of well-being, both of which are taken great care of by sports. Sports and physical activity holds great importance in an individual’s life and development. It is also said that the making of an individual depends on the qualities acquired from sports, physical activities and team work.
Inculcating this value and belief in the young generation, Manthan - Sampoorna Vikas Kendra organized ‘Sports Day’, 2017 on the 29th of August, wherein over 1500 students participated with immense enthusiasm. The event included all centres of Manthan SVK in Delhi, Haryana, Bihar and Punjab. The event was taken up as our responsibility towards the holistic development of children.
On this eventful occasion, Manthanites played various games like football, cricket, badminton, kabaddi, kho-kho, chess and took part in numerous races as well. They were taught the rules of these games by our zealous Volunteer Coaches, who we are extremely thankful to.
The children experienced team spirit and the joy of winning and losing. The event also aimed at imbibing in them respect for fellow players and coaches, as well as discipline, which is an indomitable value and an influential factor for one's success in life. Manthan SVK aims to organise such Sports’ Day Events regularly.
We are grateful to His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharajji, the founder and vision behind Manthan, for giving us this great opportunity to be able to contribute to society in the form of Holistic Education for underprivileged children.
