Sports, exercise, athletics

My Experiences in the Experiment for the Education for Tomorrow by Prashant Khanna
I had the benefit of receiving my education in the Centre of Education started by the Mother under her own close supervision and care. That a healthy mind resides in a healthy body is now a recognised tenet of education in good educational institutions, but in Pondicherry this was implemented as far back as 40 years ago with a rigour beyond the farthest stretches of imagination of people elsewhere. It might come as a surprise that the time spent in sports, exercise, athletics was as much as in studies. It extended to almost 3 full hours, starting from 4.30 p.m. and going upto 7.30 p.m. and sometimes beyond.
