[h=1]Hindu Fair to focus on reviving traditional games[/h]
CHENNAI: By 2019, the Hindu Spiritual and Service Fair will be taken to all states in the country, said S Gurumurthy, eminent commentator on social, political and economic issues, and one of the key figures behind the fair that has entered the eighth year now.

This year’s programme, scheduled for August 2-8 at A M Jain College grounds in Meenambakkam, will focus on the revival of traditional games of India, Gurumurthy said.

There will be more than 1,000 competitions in about 180 traditional games, in which thousands of school children are set to participate, he added.
Promotion of traditional games is important, said Gurumurthy, a noted advocate of native, traditional culture and values, ruing that the country does not have a national body to promote traditional games unlike other countries.

First organised in February 2009, the Hindu Spiritual and Service Fair grew in size and scope.

Thousands attended the fair in Chennai initially, and then in Jaipur and Bengaluru. More than 350 organisations, including cultural, youth and spiritual organisations expected to take part this time, up from a few dozen when it started.

Nice! I saw the banner put up on GST road! Very modest! The event is the outcome of pioneering and persevering work by Shri S. Gurumurthy!
