The world around us is constantly changing at an unimaginable pace. We have been witnessing an enormous growth in science, technology and economy. Also, according to latest research, we are supposed to be in the best era ever. Alas, not everything seems to be the best in this best era. For example, many youngsters are falling prey to various disorders such as high stress levels, high blood pressure, anxiety related disorders, insomnia – the list is endless. One of the main causes is that the youngsters of this generation are physically unfit to handle the pressure.
We at Amrita firmly believe that only a healthy body can house a healthy mind. The vision of Amrita is to prepare fit youngsters who can handle the pressures around them. This mission is accomplished by us at the physical education department.
The sports club here at Bangalore is called CHETANA, which is a part of AMRITADHARA. The club organizes various events which motivate and encourage students’ participation. This club is headed by two staff members and a student body of twenty members. One of the main functions of the Physical Education department is to group all students into six houses – Krishna , Kaveri, Kabini, Sharavathi, Netravati and Tungabhadra. This allows students to have better inter-department interactions. The club organizes the annual athletic meet and the various inter-house team events like the football, the basketball, the volleyball, the cricket and the table tennis. The club also organizes interclass matches. This facilitates maximum student participation. The club encourages the outstanding sportspersons to represent the college in various inter collegiate competitions.
