Bishan Singh Bedi, the legendary Indian spinner and Cricket Guru, inaugurated the cricket academy at Indus World School, Gurgaon along with ‘Dronacharya’ Sunita Sharma.
“Sports coaching and playing is to inculcate values to children right from childhood and not necessarily to become a star cricketer. If your child becomes one, there is an added reason to celebrate”, said Bedi. “Bringing up a child is like a ‘Tapasya’ and you and I are ‘Tapasvi’, knowingly or unknowingly’, said Bishan. He was addressing the parents at Indus World School at the end of a half day outbound training program for parents that included Rock climbing, rappelling, river crossing and flying fox kind of activities to include parents in physical education and imbibing a culture of sports in the family.
Sunita Sharma, the only woman coach to have ever won the Dronacharya award, exhorted the parents to enjoy the process of parenting and not put pressure on the child or themselves for quick results. Ms Sharma also encouraged mothers to introduce girl children to the field of sports actively which was well received by all parents.
The coaching facility will be run by Coach KN Bhatt, a former Delhi and North Zone player coached under Bishan Bedi and Sunita Sharma. Bhatt has played in VIjay Merchant, vijay Hazare, Rohinton Baria and Cooch Behar tournaments. The coaching is open to children in the age group of under 16 and open on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Parents too are welcome to join the coaching program, according to Bhatt Sir.
Indus World school is a chain of over 14 schools across India including Gurgaon, Indore, Hyderabad, Aurangabad, Raipur etc., and is a part of Career Launcher, leading education company with interests in coaching, vocational training, education publishing and k12 schools.
