Speaking on the occasion, Ms Komal Mehra, Head – Sports Initiatives and Associations, Usha International said, "India is a diverse land and a treasure chest of indigenous sports that thrive in local communities, but unfortunately are limited to the specific regions. Our aim is to not only preserve the heritage of as many sporting forms as possible, but also create awareness about them across the country and beyond. Sports plays a binding factor amongst local communities, builds sportsmanship, and instills healthy and active living habits. Satoliya is a sport that many amongst us have played as Pithu during our childhood, but sadly it's losing steam, and we'd like to see it regain its glory at the grassroots level."

Usha is deeply invested in reviving these sporting activities that are intrinsic to the local culture and help people stay fit and build communities in an enjoyable manner, The Usha Silai Schools are playing a significant role in this with the Silai School women helping organize, promote, and drive participation at these events. A traditional sport rooted in the nation's history, Satoliya helps improve concentration, physical strength, leadership, and teamwork, all of which are valuable lessons for children outside of the classroom.

Usha has been an avid supporter and promoter of a wide array of inclusive sporting initiatives across the country, including its association with the Mumbai Indians team for IPL, Ultimate Flying Disc, Golf, indigenous Indian regional sports such as Kalari, Mallakhamb, Siat Khnam, Thang-Ta, and Saz-Loung, cricket for the specially-abled, sports for visually challenged (athletics, kabaddi, judo, and powerlifting), as well as football.
