"You are aware that on December 30 players from many
countries came to Prashanthi Nilayam to take part in a cricket match.
All of them had taken a resolve to play the game in a sporting spirit,
with a pure mind and with due regard to the rules of the game. They
played the game in this sublime spirit. Not only did they enjoy
the game, but they filled the large mass of spectators with joy.
Our young students showed great interest in the match.
Among the spectators were large numbers of people from neighboring
villages and towns. Sports and games have a well-defined role in
influencing young people.
Life is a Game - Play it!
Life is a Dream - Realize it!
Life is Love - Enjoy it!
Life is a Challenge - Meet it!
People must be ready to face all the ordeals in life. The
capacity to face the challenges of life is given to man alone."
