The inaugural function of ATHLEEMA 2019-Season 7 was a very power packed affair and it took place on Wednesday, 13th March 2019.
The sports meet started with the contagious zest among the participants and spectators along with Asian Law College’s LLB and BALLB students. The opening ceremony commenced with the torch-lighting ceremony, ignited by the respected Directors of AEG. This marked the permission for the march-past.

This included Asian Law College along with the other two constituent group colleges of Asian Education Group – namely, Asian School of Business (ASB) & Asian Business School (ABS) – which actively participated in this high-pitch athletics’ meet.

After this, the esteemed Directors of AEG inspired the team for the level-up. While Dr. Lalitya Vir Srivastava (Director, AEG) inspired the participants with his encouraging speech and Welcomed all the internal and external participants, Mr. Saurabh Sharma (Director, AEG) motivated the participants to inculcate the sportsmanship not just on the ground but also in their personal lives. Mr Saurabh Sharma mentioned the importance of 14.3.2019 which was being observed as “No smoking day” and he also projected how sports can be a best tool to getaway with the smoking habit. Mr. Gurdeep Singh Raina (Director, AEG) fostered the participants’ energy and he brought forth the disease of diabetic which is being observed in young generation due to no involvement in sports activities. Mr Gurdeep Singh in order to motivate the students also gave examples of Yuvraj singh’s determination to fight deadly disease of cancer and how he has bounced back to life and lastly Dr. Saleem Akhtar (Director, ALC) evoked the students to be true and honest in their actions. Dr Saleem urged the students to be disciplined as sportsperson in their professional and personal life to achieve success .
To mark ATHLEEMA Season 7 open, bunches of balloons were released by the Directors that soared high into the horizon, adding colours of joy and celebration. Symbolically, this portrayed a strong message … “let all the fear fly away and the participation be taken to the next level!”
