From the Editor's Desk

Hari Om Friend,

The previous issue of our Newsletter carried the information regarding Kolhapur Medical & Health Care Camp in detail. The feedback received from my Shraddhavan friends is truly overwhelming. The meticulous planning and the effort which goes into the activity is in itself a management lesson for all those who are involved in it. Sadguru Bapu’s vision and foresight has a bearing on all the activities carried out by the Organisation.

Bapu not only guides and inspires the organization in carrying out various socio-cultural activities but also provides guidance to Shraddhavans on how to remain fit and healthy in the present day stressed work atmosphere. Aniruddha's Sports and Bonsai Sports does just that and has been formed with the intention of motivating Shraddhavans to play outdoor games with less number of people and in the minimum space available. This issue gives a broad overview on how the Shraddhavans have adapted themselves to this new concept thereby fueling strength to raise the much sapped energy levels.

Holi, the festival of colours is also round the corner. I wish all my Shraddhavan friends a very Happy, colourful and peaceful Holi and pray that it brings in our life the spirit of togetherness and good cheer.

        - Samirsinh Dattopadhye

Bonsai Sports

Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation

During one of his discourse, on 6th of May, 2010 at Shree Harigurugram, Bandra, Sadguru Bapu had said that just as Bonsai Tree is the miniature of an actual tree, similarly are bonsai sports. Bonsai sports are such outdoor games which can be played amongst less number of children in a minimum space. In today’s competitive and fast paced lifestyle, forget about men or women, even children hardly play. Earlier, women used to celebrate various occasions like Nagpanchami, Hartalika, Gauri Poojan, or Mangalagaur by playing variety of games. But today it is rare. Playing games helps in the overall development of a child as it helps in building importance of teamwork, unity, sportsmanship and strength of being in groups and also makes them strong to face failures in life.

But today due to the absence of such sportsmanship, children face depression; they get frightened of failures which restrict them to become independent. Thus there is a need to remove such fears from their minds. Playing brings positivity apart from helping to change the mindset of a person. The winning and losing part of a game helps in facing failures and also to overcome those.

Bapu loves hardworking people. Life becomes complete in all ways just because of hardwork i.e. physical work and mental work. There is no alternative to hardwork and only games make a person a hardworker.

A few years ago, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu formed a study group including 19 people and named them as Bonsai Sports Beginners. The work of this study group consists of developing and designing of various games, finding out new games, modifying old games in such a way that it can be played by people belonging to any age group, creating various versions of a game so that it can be played anywhere, even at home.

Under the guidance of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu, this group started with a pilot project i.e. a gaming activity at various centres. Now, various types of games are played and the happiness and energy experienced by them is simply indescribable. Shraddhavans participate whole-heartedly in the games remembering their childhood days.

While playing these group games one should remember to shun jealousy, anger and arguments. Care should be taken to avoid estrangement. There should be unalloyed and healthy competition while playing.

Let's play, let's make others play and spread happiness. The tag line of this Institute is – “Physically, mentally and spiritually fit”.
