Dilip Mehta, President of HMSA along with other dignitaries congratulated and awarded the medals. Kiran Patel, one of the participant mother said ”such events like Hindu Sports Day enable Hindu youth to enjoy and keep updated with traditional Hindu sports and also motivate and inspire Hindu youth”

HMSA would like to thank Arya Samaj of Greater Houston  for the excellent coordinating and assistance they provided for Hindu Sports Day. Arya Samaj of Greater Houston management also acknowledged and appreciated the efforts HMSA is conducting toward Hindu unity, awareness and empowerment.
