The above athletic championships are being held in the Maharaja stadium, Kochi.
In my school and college days, I was an athlete my self. I used to take part in beach and road races, 400,800 and 400 metres hurdles. But I lacked the dedication, determination and the killer instinct to excel.
The inaugural ceremony was a grand spectacle with pulsating music, mass drill and dance, march past and cultural extravaganza.
I am posting below some photos of the participants of this colorful pageantry. ENJOY.
HOW I WISH I CAN GO BACK TO SCHOOL AGAIN! THOSE WERE WONDERFUL, CARE FREE DAYS!
