kashmiri shuttlers

Sports is essential for maintaining good health. These young Kashmiris are also using it for bonding and building nation

Sports and games are physical activities involves in skill development of competitive nature. Generally two or more groups compete against each other for the entertainment or win the prize. Sports activities for both, men and women are needed to be promoted as it enhances the physical, mental, financial health of the person. It plays various great roles in strengthening the nation by building the character and health of its citizens. Sports bring speed and activeness to human’s way of acting.

Keeping this philosophy in mind a Sport Trust was formed 5 years ago by a group of likeminded people and was named as Sports Trust Of Displaced Kashmiris– the work of this trust was to hunt sports talents in various sporting activities and give them a platform where these kids could launch themselves and achieve bigger heights in life.

This idea was floated by a sports enthusiast Sumit Kaul with the support of legends like Sanjeeva Chaudhary, who captained J&K Ranji team for 16 years, Shashi Kaul, a person who earned laurels at national level in Cricket and Badminton, Sushil Dhar a master who has played DDCA for many years – this trust could not have had been possible without the support of Mr Ajay Bhat CEO ….. and lately by Mr Abhin Kaul who through his energy and dynamism has taken this trust to a different level. Sports Trust of Displaced Kashmiri’s have been organizing Cricket tournaments under the flagship name KPL (Kashmir Premier League) and CPL (Chinar Premier League) since 5 years now – this league has given birth to lot of cricket talents namely Aman Zutshi, Aakash Raina, Abhinav Tufchi, Akash Tufchi, Rahul Mussa, the list goes on and on.

This year STDK organised KBL (Kashmir Badminton League) a tournament which was played within the Kashmiri Community,  this tournament has given birth to a lots of young emerging badminton talent’s like Shehjar Chaudhary, Shirin Kaul, AaravDhar, Aarav Kaul, Vansh Raj Kaul, Aryan Nehru, AnujSher, Prajjwal Kaul, Gopal Mahaldar, Sandeep Moza. The tournament was designed in such a way that the ladies could also participate leaving behind the monotonous kitchen life style and play for fun and competitiveness – Manisha Makroo, Kanchan Kaul, Shiwani K. Bhan, Pratiba Kaul, Suchitra Miskeen, Shweta Sadhu are few of the participants.

STDK due to some reservations could hold sporting events in Delhi and NCR area only but now from this year STDK has planned to move further and organize such events in Jammu, Chandigarh, Pune, Jaipur and Bangalore. STDK is sure that this honest effort would get financial support from Government, Corporates and Sports loving Individuals.
