On the occasion of “National Sports Day” also known as “Khel Divas” (celebrated every year on the Birth Anniversary of Major Dhyan Chand the legendary Hockey Player) our beloved honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, inaugurated the first ever of its kind the “FIT INDIA MOVEMENT” aimed to initiate a atmosphere of Fit and Healthy India.
The Fit India Movement is an initiative taken by the Ministry of Youth Services and Sports along with the Central Government of India. This movement mainly aims for the benefits of its participants and want’s every Indian to be Fit and Fine Mentally as well as Physically. The movement was inaugurated at Indira Gandhi Stadium situated in Delhi.
As the Live streaming (Live Telecast) of this historical event was show on Dordharsan National Channel, we here at Lovely Professional University witnessed it at Baldev Raj Mittal Auditorium along with Two hundred and fifty Plus students from different streams and ten faculty Members too.
The main motto of this particular event was to awake the citizens of India so that, we could understand how rich our cultural diversity is and how Fitness is involved in our day to day life (starting from bed to again going to bed).
The Event started with addressing the assembly and welcoming them. Later on the web live streaming of “Inauguration Ceremony Of Fit India Movement” from New Delhi was projected. The Event was full of energy as our beloved Prime Minister was addressing the Nation. The most important part of the event was the Cultural showcase presented by different artist and students in front of Prime Minister. The message they wanted to deliver to the nation was, to understand how fitness is important in living a happy life. Later on the stage was handed over to Shri Narendra Modi, were he addressed the whole nation as “Students or Learners”, he explained how each an every citizen of our nation is holding up the nature of a student ready to gain knowledge from all the sides. He during his speech quoted a famous Sanskrit line, meaning “Health is Wealth” which allowed all the audience to think about it and to join with this movement. The event ended up with the National Anthem.
Here at LPU, we all took pledge to be Fit and to stay Healthy. We also promised ourselves to work for this motto and make this movement a grand success, as our honorable PM quoted during his speech – “FIT INDIA – HIT INDIA”.
Finally, to conclude this, the Event was full of energy and inspiration, it was wonderful experience, while witnessing the leader of the biggest Democracy showing his responsibilities and concern towards his nation and its citizens.
