And like every year, this year the organisation is leaving no stone unturned in conducting the ‘30th Annual Sports Meet’ at Penamakuru Village from January 13 to 16. Speaking on the initiative taken by them, Bharat Yuvajana Sangham member Morla Raghava Siva Kumar said “Few years ago, many youngsters and children got themselves indulged in illegal activities like cockfights and rummy during Sankranti.
We have also utilized the social networking site Facebook to upload the activities of the organisation which attracted many youth from various villages to take part in the annual sports meet.” Timoti, an HR executive in Hyderabad and president of the organisation said “We are successful in changing the mindset of the youngsters and not letting them indulge in illegal activities.
An oath taking ceremony will be conducted for the students and youngsters not to take part in or encourage gambling and cockfights during Sankranti. It will be a cheerful festival for my family and for all who stays in Penamakuru. For every Sankranti, my friends and relatives come down to the village to participate in games and cultural programmes. We will continue the trend in the village forever,’’ he said.
