“World Athletic Day” is to day- a day to rejoice;
Not by bread alone man lives-he has a golden choice
To exhibit his talents and skills in athletics
Hard labor and efforts take them on acrobatics!
Athletes are great, greater is their athletic spirit
Spirit of give and take yet fight, no jealousy in kit
Failure or success taken in its stride right from youth
To last for life time- in sports and worldly life quite smooth!
Sports and sports activities to be encouraged by all
Funds provided, infra improved, to make them quite tall
Urban or rural, rich or poor, educated or not
To be identified in time and trained on the spot!
No partiality, no politics, no prejudice
No bias, athletics and sports- above all -no malice
Sure way to promote year in and year out-over
The society and nation to resolve for ever!
