Two students of Telangana Minorities Residential Educational Institutions Society (TMREIS), who got selected by the Navy are to join Navy Sailing Team at Goa on Sunday, informed B. Shafiullah, Senior Official and Secretary, Telangana Minorities Residential Educational Institutions Society(TMREIS).
As part of the vigorous effort of TMREIS for bringing all out development in students of TMREIS to make them excel in the field of Education and Sports, two students Master C. Karthik, Students of Class VIII, TMRS Mahboobnagar Boys -1 and Master B. Santosh, student of Class VIII, TMRS Jangaon Boys – 1 of TMR Schools, participated in Youth National & International Regatta Championship at Krishnapatnam Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh and won awards. They have been selected as Sailors for Navy Boys Sports Company batch-II at INS Mandovi, Goa.
A sport like sailing requires great mental strength and courage to face challenges in deep waters. Three kids from marginalized communities in Telangana, who have already seen enough challenges in life, are now making it big in sailing. These young sailors come from modest backgrounds, where most of the parents do errand jobs to meet their daily needs. The selected students will join at Navy School at Goa on Sunday. At the Navy School these students will be groomed to represent India in National and International Championships, besides providing them School and College Education and subsequently absorbing them into the Indian Navy Service.
A grand reception was organized for the selected students at TMREIS Head Office. B. Shafiullah, IFS., Secretary TMREIS while seeing off the students, urged them to earn good name for themselves, for TMREIS and forTelangana State and to become role model for TMR Students to follow their footsteps. He expressed his best wishes and endeavour to the outgoing student. The achievement of the two TMR students is one more chapter in the success stories of TMREIS in such short span of time, he added.
Binod Kumar, chief coach of Navy sailing team, said these boys will also be trained for Olympics. These prodigies are trained in sailing at the Yacht Club of Hyderabad. This is the first time that TMREIS boys got into sailing teams of the Navy.
