Khel Mahakumbh – About us
Excellence in sports brings pride to a nation and citizens of the nation help build a healthier and happier society. Sports unites the nation by bridging the social and cultural boundaries.
There is no easier way other than sports to promote brotherhood and community bonding. It is a great leveler and unifier- when playing in a team, the caste, creed or community of teammates doesn’t matter.
