Fit India Movement is the brainchild of the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi, who believes in the vision of a fit and healthy India.
And Dr. Dashrath Bhosale, Chairperson of the elite SNBP Pune international school, explains that the children who are the citizens of tomorrow are the pioneers of this movement. SNBP International School Pune under the able leadership of Sir Bhosale moves forward towards achieving the goals of fitness for children.
The space crunch in some schools leads to unavailability of enough space for recreation for children that indirectly affect the overall growth of students. For this reason, all SSC schools in Pune have the provision of co-curricular activities keeping the children’s need of being physically fit in mind.
What is the Fit India Movement?
Mr. Narendra Modi launched the nationwide Fit India movements on the same day National sports day is observed, on the birthday of Dhyan Chand the Hockey genius. The movement aims to motivate students to take a pledge to live a fit and active life. Dr. DK Bhosale explains that a healthy body is a treasure we will cherish our entire life. For taking the campaign to the next level a body of government officials was formed for the purpose of consultation. The committee members included government officials, members of the Olympic Association, members of National sports foundation and fitness promoters for taking the fitness movement-related decisions.
Why is this movement particularly beneficial for children?
- Children are the future of the country and their foundation needs to be stronger. This fast food dependent generation that is devoid of any physical activity is giving rise of complex diseases especially in children like obesity. Mr. Narendra Modi urges the fellow countrymen to urge their children to follow a healthy lifestyle with the help of the age-old practice of Yoga.
- Exercise like yoga helps children living an orderly life. It is also beneficial to make students more disciplined. The best CBSE schools in Pune mandatorily include designated time for meditation and yoga as it is proven to release mental stress and anxiety and calms one’s soul. Thus yoga as a form of exercise is ideal for students.
- Yoga is an ancient Indian tradition, and Modiji believes that this practice will allow students to connect with the Indian tradition. International school in Pune takes an oath along with their students to abide by the path shown by our respected Prime Minister.
- Not only yoga he also stresses the importance of sports for an active life. The technology-dependent generation needs to appreciate the value of having a fit body and realise that health is the actual wealth as Dr. DK Bhosale terms it.
SNBP International School Pune that is counted among the top 5 schools in Pune equally emphasizes the importance of physical activities as it helps in the development of a healthy mindset among children. Dr. Dashrath Bhosale ensures the participation of all students in this nationwide movement by inculcating sports in everyday life of the pupils of this reputed Pune international school.
