Responding to the clarion call by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on the occasion of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ earlier this year, Olympians and Paralympians of India are set to interact with school children on the very important topics of SantulitAahaar (Balanced Diet), Fitness and Sports to empower future champions of India through a unique campaign.
Gold medalist at the Tokyo Olympics and now a prominent household name across the country, Neeraj Chopra will initiate this campaign when he visits and interacts with school children from across Gujarat at Sanskardham School in Ahmedabad on 4th December 2021.
The upcoming visit and interaction by Neeraj was announced by the Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Shri Anurag Singh Thakur on Twitter. He wrote, "PM Shri Narendra Modi ji gave a clarion call to our Olympians and Paralympians to visit schools and interact with students on the importance of 'SantulitAahaar', fitness, sports and more. Starting December 4th, Neeraj Chopra will be at Shanskardham School in Ahmedabad to launch this mission.
Speaking about the mission, Neeraj said, “I am extremely happy and excited to be part of this unique initiative envisioned by the PM Shri Narendra Modi. This initiative will accelerate the momentum towards creating a sports culture based on fitness, better nutritional intake and greater awareness about physical activities in our daily lives. As athletes, we can play a huge role in motivating youngsters to lead healthier life. I look forward to my interaction with students of Sanskardham School on Saturday."
