Itagar, Feb 18: Sports and games break all barriers to unite humanity, said DGP S Nithiyandam while citing the example of Swami Vivekanda who had advocated developing football team in each village to gain freedom from the British Raj.

Swamiji had spelt the soccer mantra to unite Indians to gain freedom as the Indian society then was divided by man-made barriers like caste, creed, religion and regions, he reasoned after felicitating weightlifting global medallist Jimjang Deru and Mr India Junior-2016 Nisu Konia for winning laurels for India here on Wednesday evening on behalf of Aruchal Weightlifting Association (AWA) and Aruchal Pradesh Body Building Association (APBBA).

Meeting such energetic young souls vibrating positive energies is always fruitful; he said and exhorted Sange Lhaden Sports Academy (SLSA) students present to act positively with discipline and commitment in life.

“I was representing Tamil du baseball team but lost my sportsman qualities after getting addicted to smoking in 1977,” the DGP said to caution them against the ill effects of drugs, tobacco and other unwanted activities which serve as hurdles for successful life.

Advocating technology driven training to face the competitive world, the DGP reiterated his assurance to try to promote APPBn constable Konia to havildar rank to recognize his talent in response to written pleas of AWA and APBBA media adviser Pradeep Kumar and secretary Daniel Teli.

Aruchal youth figured in tiol and global weightlifting and bodybuilding map because of the initiative of AWA & APBBA president-cum-Indian Weightlifting Federation (IWLF) vice president Abrham K Techi for channelizing youth energies, Aruchal Pradesh Olympic Association secretary general-cum-state sports authority vice chairman G Doke said and assured steps to extend the state government support in all future endeavours.
