Capturing pictures when the subject is in motion is a challenge. I managed to get a few during the relay of the annual sports day of Little Angels School.
Sports day is fun especially for the kids. This is the third sports day of this school that I am attending (two in Pune and one in Mumbai) Every time I get to learn something new and last week was no exception.
The house captains along with their Sir, making a final inspection of the ground before the start of the event.
The march past was perfect with children marching to the tune of Col Bogey’s march .
The Blue House won the trophy for the best team in the march past. You can see it in the video.
The Lezim dance performed by the senior boys was worth watching. I can imagine the amount of practice that has gone into it.
There was this boy Nishant Pai from yellow house who helped the guest (Ms Purvi Shah) to put the medal over his head, then he helped her to put the medal over the boy who stood second, and then again he went on to help her do the same with the guy who stood third. It was such a spontaneous gesture that it won the hearts of all who were present there.
Nikki Rita who won the Gold medal for the Inter Competition for Mumbai Rifle shooting was felicitated by Ms Priya Dutt.
Waiting for their team mates to speed up
All eyes on the one on the victory stand
Happy to be on the victory stand, with the parents
Even though he stood third, he did not mind giving a salute
All eyes on the camera for that happy occasion
In sync with the beat of the lezim
The senior students giving a helping hand
Decorating the cake with the help of the parents
Parents clicking their kids on the victory stand
Making it to the finishing line together

The last item on the agenda was for the parents, namely tug of war between the husbands and the wives. The result? Well let me say it was a draw.
