One can think of a healthy mind only in a healthy body. Both physical and mental wellbeing are the prerequisites of great achievements in one’s life. Sports are the sources of recreation. They provide relief and a sense relaxation in a life of monotony of routine marked by miseries; hardships and hurdles. They instill or infuse a sportive spirit to take up the heavy burden of life in a lighter vein and not to think of life either as a tragedy or a comedy but as the ordinary business of living. It is very essential to maintain health and physical fitness. It encourages the growth of team-spirit. Sports and games bring about various methods of diversions.
To instill the same fervor in the students of Manthan – Sampoorna Vikas Kendra’s, Sports Day was celebrated with much contentment and enthusiasm on 29th August, 2016. On this special day, Manthanites played variety of games like football, rugby, races, cricket, badminton, kabaddi, relay’s, kho-kho, chess etc. Around 1500 students participated on the day and enjoyed the games at fullest.
We highly appreciate the volunteering zeal of the coaches who devoted their time and effort on the day engaging students in recreational sports.
