Pramukh Swami Maharaj emphasizes the importance of studying, staying fit and eating healthy for all the youth. Each year BAPS Bal/Balika Mandal hosts Winter Sports Day during the month of January. This year Sport’s Day was held in over 200 Bal/Balika Mandals across all of India with thousands of balaks/balikas who participated in this grand event. Sports Day consisted of competitive games such as sack race, sprint race, cricket, tug of war, musical chairs, slow cycle race, obstacle courses, lemon-spoon race, volleyball and many more exciting activities. Prizes were given to those who placed 1st-3rd in the competitions. Pujya Santo gave brief lectures on the importance of physical fitness during the event to raise health awareness within the children. Pramukh Swami Maharaj inspires all around growth of children and for that reason each year Sport’s Day is held in all BAPS mandirs.
