Mysuru, November 26:- Member of Parliament R Dhruvanarayan on Friday said that sports and cultural activities are equally important along with studies.
He was speaking after inaugurating 3-day Sports Meet of JSS Institutions at Suttur on Friday evening in the presence of Seer Shivarathri Deshikendra Swami of Suttur Mutt.
“This sports meet being held at Suttur is wonderful. When I was a student, I too participated in state-level sports meets. I used to play football and volleyball. Participating in sports is more important than winning,” he said.
“Sport is a major part of life. It helps in improving physical and mental health. Everyone should take part in sports keeping aside differences. This sports meet shows the importance the institution has given to sports. JSS has given importance to education, agriculture, literature and scientific fields. The institution has given jobs to youths. I am privileged to be in this holy place,” said MLA Dr Yatindra Siddaramaiah.
Mike Rouse of the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education spoke on the occasion and thanked for getting a chance to take part in the event.
Seer Jayarajendra, S P Manjunath, S P Uday Shankar, Vice Chancellor of JSS Institutions of Higher Education and Research, Dr S Suresh, APMC president Lakshmamma and others were present. (MR/SH)
