Khel Mahakumbh - Girish

Khel Mahakumbh

Khel Mahakumbh was a great initiative taken by the Government of Gujarat as part of the Golden Gujarat celebration to promote sports activities across the State. The Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi announced last year that the Khel Mahakumbh will be organized every year for normal persons and the Special Khel Mahakumbh  for the differently-abled:- physically handicapped; intellectually disabled; visually challenged; speech & hearing impaired. The event will be held between 21 November to 23 December. The Chief Minister will flag off the torch of Khel Mahakumbh – 2011 in the morning at 11.11 on 11.11.11 in Gandhinagar. The torch will travel in all 26 districts covering the total distance of 2550 kms in ten days. The inauguration ceremony of this MEGA EVENT will be held on 21 November, 2011 in Baroda.

There is something unique in the present logo of the 2011 Khel Mahakumbh, i.e, the inclusion of the international symbol of the handicapped along with the normal sports persons. The credit goes to Fr.Girish, a Trustee member of the Special Olympics Gujarat, to influence the government to include such a precious symbol. Come, let us join together with the State government to promote sports activities among the  normal and the special persons: “Ramshe Gujarat. Jitshe Gujarat!” (Girish)
