Rotary Club of Gaya, D 3250, in association with The Gaya Rotary Charitable Trust, has been organising the Rotary Yuva Mahotsav since 2011. Initially begun with schools of Bihar State only, the two-day programme soon included schools of Jharkhand too. Competitions are held in cultural events and sports in various venues across Gaya.
This year’s Mahotsav which was inaugurated by DG Ramachandran Bharat and chaired by Amrender Pratap Singh had around 450 participants from 29 schools from the two States. “The competition seems to be getting tougher year after year; the students are exhibiting extraordinary talent and creativity in all the events,” said Chief Event Coordinator Sanjay K Varma.
“We look forward to the Rotary Mahotsav every year. We love the camaraderie and the healthy competition and of course, we learn something new each year, which we share with our classmates back home,” says Sonali, a student from Jharkhand.
It was colours galore at Gaya with vibrant rangolis, creative paintings, lively dance performances and healthy debates. The Vice Chancellor of Magadh University Prof Istiyaque honoured the winners with the awards.
