"Bringing Joy and Healthy Competition to Children: 1st Annual Village Sports Day"


As part of my Pragati program, Pragati Yodhas recently organized a sports day event for the village kids at Aloobari Village, Darjeeling. The aim of this event was to promote physical activity, healthy competition, and community building among the children of the village. The day was filled with excitement, laughter, and a sense of accomplishment as the kids took part in various sports

The sports day event took place on a bright and sunny day at the local playground. The kids were eager and excited to participate in the various sports activities that had been organized for them. The event was opened with warming up session, led by one of the Pragati Yodhas, which soon followed with the singing of the Indian National Anthem. The kids walked in formation of team to the cheers of the spectators.

The sports activities were designed to cater to the different age groups and abilities of the children. For the smaller kids, there were fun and engaging games like  musical chairs, egg and spoon races, and three-legged races. The younger kids, on the other hand, were given the opportunity to participate in more competitive games like sack race, races and many more. And the senior kids participated in Football and Trail Marathon. The kids were divided into teams, each representing a different colour, and the friendly competition between the teams added to the excitement of the day. 

One of the highlights of the day was the tug-of-war competition. The kids were divided into teams, and the teams were given a rope. The objective was to pull the other team across a line in the middle of the playground. The kids worked together as a team, and the competition was intense. The cheers and laughter of the kids and spectators alike filled the air as each team put in their best efforts to win the competition.

Some other event that the kids thoroughly enjoyed was the short Trail Marathon and Football. The kids were given the challenge of running in a trail and the kids worked together, helping and encouraging each other, to complete the course. The sense of pride and accomplishment on their faces as they crossed the finish line was a sight to behold. 

In additionto the sports activities, there were also refreshments and food stalls set up at the event. The kids were treated to a variety of snacks and drinks, and it was a great opportunity for them to socialize and interact with each other. The parents spectators were also able to grab a bite and relax while they watched the kids compete. 

The sports day event was a great success, and the kids had a fantastic time. They learned the importance of teamwork, healthy competition, and physical activity, and they got to spend a day in the sun, playing and having fun. The event also brought the community together and showed the kids that they are part of a larger family. It was a great opportunity for me to give back to the community
and make a difference in the lives of these children.
