Did you know that the song Vandemataram just completed 100 years? If you didn't, you are precisely the condition these tournaments and commemorations lament and seek to ameliorate. The Vandemataram Centenary Celebratory Committee has gotten a small-scale juggernaut rolling to remind people of their haloed roots – the phrase that kindled a revolution. They have sent circulars through the District Educational Officer to all the schools in the state, requesting them to restart the daily rendition of Vandemataram, the anthem, with their daily morning prayers. In addition, a variety of events are being conducted to bring children together in the spirit of Vandemataram.
On the agenda today are the Kho Kho competitions for three categories : Juniors (below 18), Sub-juniors (12-15 years) and Cadets (below 12 years). The competitions will be held between the 5th and 7th of January at the Mahavir Institute Of Science And Technology. There is no entry fee and participant teams will be selected by a draw of lots. The last date for entries is the 3rd of January and entry is free. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided to all the participants. .A pick-up and drop service will also be available from Fateh Maidan. Students have to be there between 8 and 8:30 in the morning to avail of it. In the evening, they will be escorted back.
