Warm Greetings in the month of August. This month becomes important to us in two aspects. One of them is, as Indians we rejoice our 73rd Independence Day and another is our Sports Day which falls on 10th of this month. I don’t consider Sports and life are two different things. Sport teaches discipline and character. It builds self confidence in them. Mainly sportsmen develop sportsmanship in their career which makes them to face success and failure with confidence. Hence sports is a life skill. If you are a sportsman you should be with utmost discipline. You can inspire others with your character and value systems.
As we are celebrating our Independence on 15th, we should be proud of being citizens of world’s biggest democratic nation. Patriotism and sportsmanship are inseparable feelings. When a player plays for his country is almost equal to a soldier fighting for his country in spirit. They have the feeling not to give up for any reason.
So, Dear Children,
Grow in Sportsmanship
Never give up.
I wish you all the very best for the wonderful 18th Annual Sports Meet and 73rd Independence Day as well.
