Silambam-26-02-2021

Silambam is a Indian martial art that
originates in southern India, and is an
optional part of Isha Vidhya’s sports
curriculum. It helps to improve flexibility,
agility, and hand-eye coordination.

10 Isha Vidhya students won top prizes -
gold medals and certificates at the
inter-school Silambam competition
conducted by the World Silambam
Sports Association on 31
st January
at Tharuvai grounds in Tuticorin,
Tamilnadu, India. About 200 students
from 20 students participated in this
zonal level event.

It’s heartwarming to note that
Isha Vidhya practiced for the event
in spite of the Covid-19 situation,
by strictly following the Covid-19
protocol.

Sports is an important focus area
at Isha Vidhya.  If you would like
to make a difference in a student's

Shares Madhuran, who was a student
of Isha Vidhya:

“My name is
Madhuran. I joined Isha Vidhya
in 2nd grade, and completed 12thgrade. I then
pursued my college
. I joined Chandy Polytechnic
College, and
completed my Diploma in
Mechanical Engineering with 80% marks.

The memories of my school life period are
definitely
a treasure to cherish for the rest of life.
My school continuously
played an effective role
in
honing my life. It is a golden time period of
learning. It truly
impacted my life. I got self-
confidence, motivation, and
the will to do the
best.

Some campus interviews
were conducted by
my college, and I was selected by Apollo
Tyres
company
inChennai. Now I work there, and
giving my best. I am always thankful to my
donors who supported me financially to
complete my school studies successfully.”

We are inspired that Isha Vidhya made a
difference in Madhuran’s life in educating
and enabling him to
get a job. Isha Vidhya
educates rural children in India, so that they
and their families get out of poverty cycles
by getting gainful employment to support
their families.

If you would like to take part in Isha Vidhya’s
journey, you can consider making a recurring
donation at the link provided.

Thanks for all that you have done for Isha Vidhya,
and we look forward for your continued support.

Dhanapushpam-20-02-2021

Dhanapushpam, Physical Education
Teacher (P.E.T) at Isha Vidhya Nagercoil,
has been doing wonders, training
winners in individual and team sports
over the
past five years. In 2019-20,
the school won the
First prize at the
zonal level in 15 individual events, and
8
prizes in team events. The school
walked away with 41 prizes at the
zonal level in
that year!

Dhanapushpam was interested in
Sports from her childhood. She was
influenced by a relative who was
a successful
sportsperson. As a
student
, she participated in a running
event at the
District level and won
the
First prize. This was a turning
point in her life.
She started focusing
on a career as aSports Trainer. She
completed her B
.P. Ed. and M.P. Ed.
to become
a passionate Physical
Education
teacher.

At Isha Vidhya, her day starts at
07:30 AM with a regular workout
and practice for sports-loving
students, followed by training
students
throughout the day.
She
does the workout again in
the evening with
interested
students before she calls it a
day. Her enthusiasm for training
well shines through when
she accompanies her students
unasked for outstation
competitions.

Dhanapushpam is constantly
on lookout for students who
show interest and enthusiasm
in sports, and motivates them
to strive for excellence,
engaging
them with the benefits of good
health, and perhaps the
opportunity to land a secure
Government job if they win at
the
District, State, or National
level.

Dhanapushpam says she feels
proud when students from other
schools acknowledge Isha Vidhya's
Sports excellence at sport meets
and when her neighborhood
children wish they could study at
Isha Vidhya for their sports.

She finds her journey with Isha
Vidhya gratifying and a great
opportunity for self-development.

SriMeena-17-02-2021

Srimeena ran faster than the other
150 participants and won the first
prize at the inter-school sports meet
in 2018-19. She is inspired to run
like her idol P.T. Usha and has
dreams of becoming a professional
athlete, and participating in sports
not just at the national level, but also
winning laurels for the country.

She has won prizes in Running,
Long Jump, High Jump, and Kho Kho
at the school and zonal levels and
says that the motivation of her parents,
friends, and teachers drives her to do
well in studies and sports.

Srimeena, who's studying at Isha Vidhya
Dharmapuri in Grade 10, is a class
topper, and is now studying hard for
her board exams. But sports being her
passion, Srimeena worked out regularly
during the lockdown to stay in shape
for the upcoming tournaments.
