Physical and mental fitness together play very important roles in our lives and people who are both, physically and mentally fit are less prone to medical conditions as well. People who are physically and mentally fit are also are able to maintain their most optimum weight. Although I have traveled all over India, but never played in Mangaluru. Looking at the present Mangaluru, I can say that there is lot of scope and potential for sports. Only thing is that the youth need some encouragement and support from their parents, elders and their teachers/lecturers.”

Along with these hobbies, they should also take up sports, which will keep them busy, fit and healthy. Not only sports keeps you physically fit, it can fetch you good jobs in good companies. There are thousands and thousands of sportsmen who got hired through sports quota in airlines, railways, other private sectors and are making big bucks than others. There is always a future in sports. I am also a lucky one who has made great achievements in life, just because of my involvement and liking for sports. You too can do it.

Wing Cdr. and Former Ranji Cricket player, Arijit Ghosh also addressing the gathering said, ” Winning is not important in a sport, but participating and trying to win is important. Playing in a sport is a gift in your life. Life will surely be a boring, if you sit at home and do nothing, instead get up, involve yourself in co-curricular activities, or best way is to make sports your hobby. By doing that you can keep yourself busy, fit and healthy. Playing a sport is a great workout for the body as it improves breathing while working the muscles in the body. It drastically improves your endurance, strength, stamina and helps build lean muscles. Besides for some people it is more engaging and exciting than going to a gym. When the aim is to stay fit, you can do it in any way you like and are comfortable with. If you are not the type who likes to pump it in the gym or go running in the park, why not join a sports club and delve into your favorite sport. So, play sports for exercise, stay fit and have fun”.

Keeping sports, fitness and health in mind, HAMSmart has also initiated another program named as “Mission 50 World Class TV Anchors”, a initiative headed by P. A.

Speaking to Team Mangalorean, PA Jose said, “Communication skill is the prime skill everyone should have irrespective of the specialization that they choose. Unfortunately, even in many degree programs we find absence of communication. Engineers, Doctors, Nurses, MBAs and every other who come out from the campuses need communication skills. The people who are good in communication skills get jobs and promotions comfortably. Since curriculum doesn’t have it; One need to get it outside! Starting from basic Communication Modules, Mission 50 World Class TV Anchors aims to train and develop 50 World Class TV Anchors! This will be done with the help of an overall coaching package that includes Scientific Interventions and rigorous training”.
