Sports competition for children

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but
those giving more.”

The students of NSS IIT Roorkee organised sports competitions for the
children of Khanjarpur and Bhangeri village. The event was organised
on January 26, 2016 in Subash Chandra Bose Club. Total forty-two
students aged between 8-12 years took part in the competition. Before
the event the volunteers had gone door to door to tell children about the
event. A lot of preparation and planning was done beforehand before
organizing the event.

First single lane race was organised for the children. It was followed by
marble on spoon race, frog race and three leg race. Both boys and girls
actively and enthusiastically participated in the events. Even some
parents had come to cheer for their children. The children were so
excited that many times they used to start running even before the count
to start finished. Those who were not in the race were cheering for their
friends. Volunteers as well as children both enjoyed a lot. The event
lasted for about two and half hours. After all the races were over, prizes
were given to the winners. At the end all the children were given
refreshments. Vishal Pundir, a student of class 7th and the winner of the
single lane race said that he enjoyed a lot and also that such events
should be conducted regularly by NSS.

The aim of NSS IIT Roorkee is all-around development of children. The
future of our country is in the hands of these children, Hence besides
teaching children, it also holds such events. Events like these teach
children importance of sports in life, team-spirit, discipline,
sportsmanship and help them in overall development. They also instil
competitive spirit and confidence in children. We can be sure of our
country's bright future only if the children are both physically and
mentally fit.
