A sound mind in a sound body. To prove this dictum true and contemporary, the Christ Institute of Management, Ghaziabad organized Sports Meet 2017 on April 8, 2017. It was winged out into four events: Race, Tug of war, Kabaddi and Table Tennis.
The Sports Meet 2017 was inaugurated by Rev. Fr. Anto Pudusserry the Vice Chairman of the Institute. The first event of the day was 100 meter race. The finalists were chosen from different heats and it was spectacular to watch the students giving their best to secure positions. The second event was Tug of war and the students from different houses locked horns to compete their rivals. It indeed resembled a war standing apart a distance and fierce pull to prove their might. The third event was Kabaddi. It reminded of the saying ‘knock the door of success until success opens its door’ and students’ performance was amazing to watch. This was an action packed event prompted by the popular “Pro-kabbadi”. The students of Porter and Drucker House came out triumphant in both the team events. Snacks were offered to all students in order to restore their energy for the next event and to beat the heat and bring fresh talents. The final event of the day was Table Tennis and students did splendidly well. Immediately, after the events, prize distribution ceremony took place to crown the students who were overwhelmed with joy and happiness.
The winners shared their thoughts about the Sports Meet 2017 and their feel for the ‘winnables’ who gave them tight competition and the urge to stick on to the winning spirit. The sharing indeed was remarkable from the point of Management studies and truly humorous and enjoyable experience for all of them. It highlighted the importance of sports for physical fitness. It not only helped to develop a healthy mind in a healthy body but also helped to inculcate team spirit and discipline.
Kudos to all!
