At PKL, India’s War Veterans Cheer On the Adani Gujarat Giants
Veterans from the Indian Armed Forces turned out to witness the Gujarat Giants compete in the Pro Kabaddi League against the Bengal Warriors at the Shree Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex in Balewadi, Pune.
And, in an emotional moment to remember, veterans joined the Kabaddi players on the field to sing the national anthem.
The veterans are part of a rehabilitation programme by Paraplegic Rehabilitation Center (PRC) at Kirkee in Pune. It is a nodal organisation that improves the lives of soldiers from the Army, Navy, and Air Force who have had spinal cord injuries.
Adani Sportsline’s annual Ahmedabad Marathon, which is held in support of the Indian Armed Forces, also contributes to PRC. The proceeds from the Ahmedabad Marathon will go to support rehabilitation programmes organised by PRC.
The Gujarat Giants will take on the Haryana Steelers in their next game, which will also be their final outing in Pune on Monday, 14th November. After that, the caravan moves to Hyderabad, the city of the iconic Charminar.
