Dream big, Amritraj tells kids

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, SEPT. 21. The U.N. Ambassador for Peace and former tennis star, Vijay Amritraj, today urged the younger generation to "dream big" and strive hard to achieve it.

Sharing his `childhood dreams' with students of the R.K. Puram branch of Delhi Public School at a function held here to `celebrate' the U.N. International Day of Peace, Mr. Amritraj said: "Always dream big. My childhood dreams are a reality today."

Referring to this year's theme, "Peace Through Sports", he said sports could be a used as vehicle of peace in both international affairs and domestic matters. "Sports would help you to become a better human being," he added.

Mr. Amritraj, who freely mingled with the students and teachers of the school after the function was over, said: "It is not important to always win in sport. It is important to participate. You always win from losing. You never win from winning."

Earlier the school students presented a colourful cultural programme. The Delhi Public School Society Chairman, Narender Kumar, and the Director of the United Nations Information Centre here, Shalini Diwan, also spoke on the occasion.
