Apostrophe Khel Mahotsav (2021)

Its been nearly 18 months of pandemic induced lockdown from April 2020 to October 2021. We’ve all been mostly confined to our homes with hardly any social interaction.
The usual celebrations of Holi, Ganpati, Diwali, Christmas, New Year –everything had to be cancelled to keep ourselves safe from the virus. Naturally, everyone is tired and fed up with this forced confinement.
So the moment the government lifted the lockdown and opened up, we in Apostrophe decided to do something which will involve everyone – from the youngest to the oldest -
and generate a lot of excitement and fun to lift the spirits.
And what better way of uniting people than sports!
And the cool December weather is ideally suited for all sports. So we formed a team of volunteers to organise the event. We have many events lined up – Badminton, Cricket, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Basketball, Football, Cycling, Racing, mini-Marathons, Handball, Carrom and Lagori (‘pitthu’). And for most of the events we’re using the
amenities available inside our society. For few events like Badminton and Football, we have to do it outside as we don’t have these inside our society.
And the events are having categories for Men, Women, Teens, Kids, Senior Citizens so that each and every person gets to participate in some sports.
The event generated so much enthusiasm, we have got nearly 200 participants and about 800 registrations for different events!
While one team of organisers is preparing for the ceremonies, medals, flags, posters, T-shirts, trophies etc., others are taking practice sessions for various sports.
And still others are preparing meticulously for each event: matches, timings, equipment, rules,
referees etc. Organising such an event over 3 weeks requires lot of hard work and attention to details and the organisers are putting a lot of efforts to make this a memorable event.

We’ve aptly named it “Apostrophe Khel Mahotsav (2021)” as it is truly a festival of
sports. The entire society is eagerly awaiting the opening ceremony on 11th December
and the 3 weeks of fun and enjoyment.
Our aim is to bring people together and have lots of fun and bonding in the best spirit of
sportsmanship, and create some happy memories for a lifetime.

पुण्यासारख्या मध्यमवर्गीय व उच्य मध्यमवर्गीयांच्या शहरात, ज्या घरात शाळेत जाणारी मुले असतात, त्या मुलांना सायकल आणली जाते. मुले दहावी पास झाल्यावर कॉलेजला जाऊ लागतात तशी स्कूटर चालवायला लागतात आणि सायकल पडून राहते.

दुसरीकडे खेडे गावात असे चित्र दिसते की मुले खूप दूर वर चालत शाळेत जातात. हे अंतर खूप असते व मुले दमून जातात.

जिल्हा परिषद शाळा नंबर एक, आरग (ता मिरज जिल्हा सांगली) येथील काही मुले 5 ते 7 किलो मिटर अंतर कापून वाडी वस्ती वरून चालत येतात. ही बहुतांश मुले गरीब घरातली आहेत.

आपल्या कडील वापरात नसलेली सायकल जिल्हा परिषद मुलांची शाळा नंबर 1,

आरग येथील गरजू विद्यार्थ्यांना पाठवण्याचा प्रकल्प आम्ही हाती घेतला आहे.
