Speaking on the occasion, Professor Abid said, “Our College has been organizing this event from last several years and with this we kick start our annual sports calendar. Winning is not important but participating and completing is. While passing through the racetrack I saw number of participants falling at the very beginning, which is not encouraging sign.”
