Professor B.B.Bhattacharya
Vice- Chancellor,


Subject: Request for providing sports coaching facilities for JNU children


Dear Professor Bhattacharya: 

I write this as a follow up to our conversation in a meeting last year.  

There are more than 25 children in JNU Campus that are interested in taking coaching for various sports such a tennis, badminton etc. JNU already boasts of basic sports facilities for this purpose. However, for some inexplicable reasons, this precious infrastructure is not being made use of. This is especially needed for Campus children who are in the growing age [especially 8 to 17 years] and are keen to learn.  

As such, I would like to request you to kindly give necessary instructions for providing coaching facilities for lawn tennis and badminton for Campus children which can also be availed of by interested students. This can be by allocation of separate sloted hours. In this connection, JNU needs to hire respective coaches on contract basis and pay them modest fees from already available sports funds. For this purpose the lawns also need to be duly maintained and sufficient lighting need to be provided so that the children can play in the evenings too. This will amount to vital investment for inculcating strong sports culture among the Campus children.

I would also like to place before you that a separate yoga timings with a trainer to be given for faculty and their spouses as the current yoga sessions are open to all, students, and people from outside making it too conjested and also bit uncomfortable.

I hope and trust that you will accord requisite sanction for this proposal as well as give instructions to the concerned staff to give effect to it expeditiously.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,


Sunita Reddy                         Krishna Kumar & D.K. Lobyal
Secretary                                Sports Coordinator
