Four years ago, in 2016, India’s sporting heroes came together to lift the patriotic fervour on the special occasion of Republic Day. The video sung beautifully exhorted us to take sports and our sporting heroes more seriously – a plea that needs to be heard and acted upon. They encouraged parents to let children pursue their passion for sports and not to limit them to studies alone. Several of the biggest names in Indian sports such as Sunil Gavaskar, Dhanraj Pillai, Mahesh Bhupathi, Sushil Kumar, Baichung Bhutia, Sania Mirza, Gagan Narang along with Sachin Tendulkar rendered the National anthem which still is bound to give you goosebumps.
With an aim to inspire the younger generation towards sports, International Institute of Sports Management (IISM) launched an album – the Sports Heroes. Former cricketer and founder of IISM Nitesh Kulkarni realised the fact that most children were not playing outdoors anymore. This is why he decided to make a video.
We hope this video helps you to take sports more seriously in our country. Jai Hind! We are positive it will inspire many besides it is a treat to the eyes and ears to see and hear our national heroes singing India’s national anthem.
