The students in this college come mainly from surrounding rural areas. They are raw diamonds who can be moulded into jewels. If this power is not channelized properly, this national asset can go wasted. There is need to pay proper attention to them. The Practice: After the admission to the college, interested students are invited to college ground. Physical Director of the college filters the students as per their capacity, past record and choice. The college has also formed a committee for sports, which, along with the Physical Director of the college, takes care of the requirements. The students are given coaching by the Physical Director and support staff. Different indoor games like Wresting, Judo, Carom and Chess and outdoor sports like athletics, cricket, volleyball, hockey, kho-kho, kabaddi, football, handball and many more are taught to the students in a formal way. The college has been keeping pace with the latest inventions in the field of sports and has always tried to maintain the standards of equipments up to the mark. Moreover, the awareness of sports and discipline is cultivated among them. Apart from these traditional sports, Yoga is given utmost importance in this college. The main aim of Sports committee is to prepare sports persons who can express themselves at State, National and International levels and to inculcate the spirit of Discipline, Determination, Commitment, Confidence among the players To contribute to the progress of society and thereby the nation. it gives ample facility to develop brotherhood among different class and creed of the society. To groom mentally and physically strong youth with the help of Yoga and to make aware the present fashionable generation which has forgotten age-old slogan of ‘Health is Wealth’. Moreover, the excessive attack of technology has made this generation towards sports and Yoga. They are not aware of the benefits of a healthy body and strong mind. In addition to it, an activity of sports is something more than simple entertainment. It contributes to all round development of a person’s personality. Now-a-days, there are ample of job opportunities for the players who have remarkable performances under his/her belt. Unemployment is a huge problem of our society. In such condition, students can earn jobs in different services. A good disciplined player has better chances of becoming a good leader. The college intends to prepare such a sound generation. Yoga has not been paid that much attention as it should have been. Yoga not only makes the man physically but also mentally strong. It is also a good sport now becoming famous in international circles.
To create awareness among the students, staff and community about the need to women empowerment college creates and caters ample events. It makes the College Girls students to have an opportunity to actively involved in this mammoth task. This awareness suggests plans for women empowerment among the students, staff and community. To uplift women to a level equal to men, to enable women for job and thereby self-dependent. To prepare them able for healthy competition to the male counterpart. The State of Gujarat has been lagging behind in the matter of development of women because it has more or less remained a backward state uptill the advent of 21st century. The poverty is so dominating a force that education, development and empowerment of women have been a far off thought. Therefore it is imperative to take initiatives to guide such deprived half of the society to a path of progress. The students are the best representatives to inculcate this change into the society. A course on Beauty Parlour Skills is run by Home science department of the college. A short-term course on Preparation of Bakery Items is held every year. Training of Chocolate Making, bakery items and Cooking is conducted on regular bases. A lecture was organised on safety measures to be taken by the housewives in case of accidents. Our Home science department is active enough to make the girl students participated and got trained in the activities like sewing, embroidery, mahendi, beauty parlour tricks, Rakhi making etc. Many girl students have started making their livelihood on the bases of the skills developed in this programme. Sometimes the response from the students for such courses is not encouraging. It is difficult to bring the students to such training classes after their regular class because of low frequency of transportation. The students from our town turn up in big number but the strength of girl students from remote villages still need to be guided positively. No financial problems were encountered in carrying out all the activities mentioned above. The major problem that the institute encounters is the availability of students for this class. As this classes are generally held in the morning, it is difficult to attract more students from the society.
