Rose Yanthan, OC of women’s police station, who was the chief guest of the inaugural programme, appreciated the organisers of the programme. She also encouraged the women to bring change and therefore “be the change”.
She also shared that playing sports lift the spirits and added that winning was important but participation was the most important. She therefore asked the participants not to be discouraged even if they lose.
Principal of Ram Janaki School, HP Gupta, said that women were not ‘lacking behind’ but they were far ahead and if given the right platform, they could achieve anything in life.
He also shared that sports had the power to bring people together. He further urged the participants to ‘rejoice in everything’, even if they lose. He also encouraged everyone to play sports and games as they are necessary in life for developing one’s mind and soul.
