35th National Games Kerala

   The National Games is the most important sporting event in the country. It has its origin in the Indian Olympic Games movement in the first few decades of the last century. The movement culminated in the 9th Indian Olympic Games at Lahore in 1924. The event was known by this name until 1940 when it was held at Bombay as National Games. Kerala is going to hold the National Games for a second time during the year 2014 (Confirmation of date awaited from Indian Olympic Association). The first occasion was in 1987.

    35th National Games will certainly boost the sports ethos of the people of the State, especially the younger generation. It will cause a churning in the sporting population resulting in the discovery of new talents. National Games will certainly improve the sports infrastructure in the State. It will create awareness among the sporting youth that training under modern facilities can create the required talent for competing in national or international events. 35th National Games will be a boon for further development of sports in Kerala in the coming years.

Glimpses of Kerala

Kerala is a land of grand spectacles. The peaks of the sahyas, the green lagoons and the verdant undulating landscape make it “God’s own country’. The sun-blanched beaches make it another paradise on earth. The colourful boat races on the lagoons and lakes including the world famous Nehru Trophy Boat Race, the classical pantomime dance forms like Koodiyattom and Kathakali and folk dances like Oppana adds on to the grandeur that is Kerala. The women of Kerala actively participating at grassroots level developmental activities through their collectives  called  Kudumbasree are another magnificent feature that distinguishes Kerala.
