Hockey tourney kicks off

Image

The air was rife with excitement at the synthetic hockey turf ground at the Anna Stadium here as the action unfolded in Dinesh P. Khanna Memorial State-level hockey tournament, here on Tuesday.

The tournament, organised by the Joe Joe Hockey Club, has attracted 18 teams and is being conducted on knockout basis. “I am happy that a State-level hockey tournament is being played on synthetic turf. Such tournaments will help in spotting talent and help promote the sport among youngsters,” said two-time hockey Olympian Jude Felix Sebastian, after inaugurating the tourney.

The former Indian captain said that the establishment of synthetic hockey turfs in districts such as Tiruchi was a good step forward. “To make it big in hockey, it is essential that players practice on the turf from a young age,” the Arjuna awardee felt.

Olympic fever catching up with sports buffs

With the London Olympic games approaching fast (July 27 – August 12), Olympic fever is gradually spreading among sports-lovers in the district.

The release of a new book titled ‘Mini Encyclopaedia of Sports World' explaining the history of the Olympic Games from Greece Olympics (1896) to London Olympics (2012) at a function held in the city on Friday bears testimony to this.

The book is authored by T. Ganesan, well known sports commentator and former station director of All India Radio.

Kids pick up tips on ecology conservation at nature camp

Image

Spools of thread linked kids playacting as dragon flies, eagles, and tigers at the nature camp in Periyar National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary, Kerala. Ecology was made practical as students from Tiruchi weaved a food web while discovering there are no losers or winners but every one counts in the game of sustaining ecological balance.

Organised by Science and Adventure Club, Tiruchi, and Youth for Conservation (YFC), the three-day camp at the tiger reserve was packed with similar activities in putting conservation and nature observation into action. Around 23 kids aged between 10 and 17 camped at Valakadavu near Thekkady, in a follow-up to YFC's attempts to rope in school students in building a committed and young green brigade. “The camp trained students in becoming backyard naturalists by accustoming them to observing things around them. We introduced first timers to fundamentals without getting too scientific,” said Ramanath Chandrasekhar, founder, YFC.

The session that kicked off on the first day had bird watching has its heart with a forest trek to spot birds followed by insightful sessions. “Participants not only learnt how to use a bird book to identify bird calls and differentiate birds by characteristics, but to quickly sketch birds they spotted for later identification with a bird book as reference,” said Vrinda Ramanan, with the Science and Adventure Club.

While a trek along the Periyar River turned out to be a practical session in spotting waterbirds, butterflies, and dragon flies that abound by the riverside, an intense trek up Vanammuttimalai has students trying to gauge elephants and gaurs from a distance.

Veterinarian Srijith Radhakrishnan talked about caring for animals in the wild and sought solutions for man-animal conflict. Mr.Ramanan spoke about biodiversity of forests complemented by presentations on Himalayas and Western ghats. Sanjayan Kumar, deputy director, forests, distributed certificates. Students were introduced to careers in conservation and were guided on how they could contribute from positions in various professions. Screening of documentaries, an ecological treasure hunt and quick tips on forest etiquette rounded off the nature encounter.
