  1. India has produced many famous personalities at National and International levels and very much progress in Cricket and Bollywood from them India is getting more and more recognization in the World, such like Sachin Tendulkar, Mohammed Azharuddin, Sania Mirza, Amitabh Bachchan, Sharuk Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar etc etc and Tomorrow our juniors will take their place and these cycle will go on & on.

    Our famous personalities have Millions of fan following inside and outside India.

    But the Students from Government Schools have not been getting any help or benefits from our Stars , but our Political parties getting such privilege only for own political Vote bank business.

    Why not our elected-Government introduces a network direct interaction in-between the Students from Government Schools with our Public Hero’s across the India to get the help from such famous personalities to learn their Physical Fitness, Skills and Experience.

    The gap should be less in-between our (Stars, Sportsmen, Famous Personalities from all walk of Life) and (the Students from Government Schools) to achieve a Healthy and Successful-LIFE for our bright future of INDIA.
