In January 2021, the Hiun Jajah Yuvak Mandal of District Shalamu organized a cricket tournament for the local youth between 18 and 25. Divided into 30 teams, young boys from the surrounding villages took part in the tournament.
The 10-over matches were played with great enthusiasm and fervour. The Ashram administration was invited to watch the finals, which took place on January 31. The game, which was fiercely fought between the Hiun and Kargul village teams, saw Kargul eventually triumph and take the trophy home.
The cash awards for the winners and the runners-up were sponsored by the ashram and distributed by Ms. Dayal Pyaari, the chief guest and local politician. The excitement of the hard-fought win was tangible, with some very happy boys heading home that evening!
