Honour of India’s First Olympics Trials at Deccan Gymkhana in 1919.

Honour of India’s First Olympics Trials at Deccan Gymkhana in 1919.

 India first sent its official contingent of 6 athletes at the 1920 Antwerp Olympics. Eminent businessman Dorabji Tata who was president of Deccan Gymkhana is credited to take the initiative to form an ‘Indian Olympic Association’ to pick and train athletes who could participate in the 1920 Olympics.

Dorabji Tata approached then-Bombay governor George Lloyd, who helped secure permission for India for the play. The Olympic trials were then held at Deccan Gymkhana ground in April 1920 which is a great honor for all of us.

टिळक तलावाची पाणीदार ९९ वर्ष !

टिळक तलावाची पाणीदार ९९ वर्ष !

एक शतकाची गौरवगाथा

डेक्कन जिमखान्याचा टिळक तलाव हा पुणेकरांच्या अत्यंत जिव्हाळ्याचा विषय. गेली अनेक दशके असंख्य पुणेकरांना पोहण्याचा आनंद देणाऱ्या, अनेक आंतरराष्ट्रीय व राष्ट्रीय विजेते जलतरणपटू व वॉटरपोलोपटू घडवणाऱ्या टिळक तलावाला आज 99 वर्षं पूर्ण होत आहेत.

अनेकांना कदाचित माहीत नसेल, वाहते जिवंत झरे असलेला हा तलाव जगातील अतिशय दुर्मिळ काही तलावांपैकी एक आहे.
