“Sports teaches you character; it teaches to play by the rules”
– Billie Jean King
In keeping with the spirit of the above quote by the renowned tennis player, Parivartan decided to focus on physical activity for the children. Besides, this being the monthly Game Day, there was the added attraction of game play with attractive prizes on offer.
The day started with one minute' silence after prayer, in the memory of the forty Indian soldiers whose lives were brutally cut short at Pulwama last week.
The first segment warmed things up with a P.T. session led by Sunil and Jyoti. They first explained the meaning and importance of P.T. or Physical Training. Helped by the other volunteers, they taught the children about the basic stretches for different parts of the body. Needless to say, the learners joined in with the expected zest and vigour.
Coming to the more fun part of the day’s activity, the volunteers had arranged for two kinds of games. In one, the kids had to do the opposite of what they were instructed. For example, when asked to sit, they had to stand up. Those who failed to do so would be eliminated. This was a throwback to the stress on sports as a lesson on attentiveness and quick response.
In the other game, Sunil played music on a speaker. The participants had to dance with the music, turning into statues as soon as the music stopped. Those who could not would be out of the game.
Four winners were selected from each game. Each of them received a badminton racket set as a prize. A revision of the day’s learning was also carried out, with those answering correctly receiving a ‘Parle Kaccha Mango Bite’ toffee each. The day winded down with the distribution of packets of ‘Crax Rings’ and ‘Parle Orange Bite’ toffees among the children.
Dr. Indraneel Mandal accompanied and motivated the student volunteers. Prof. Lokesh Upreti planned and guided the volunteers in the conduct of the programme as the faculty coordinator of CSR Club - Parivartan, , ,
