Perfect Health Mela to host inter-school competition 'Harmony'
OVER 2000 schoolchildren from various schools will participate in Harmony - the interschool health festival being organized by Heart Care Foundation of India in the forthcoming MTNL Perfect Health Mela, held at Constitution Club of India from November 7 - 11.

THE EVENT will mark the opening of the main Mela on November 7 (Wednesday) at the Mela premises. The event is supported by Rashtriya Vigyan Evem Prodyogiki Sansthan, Department of Science and Technology Govt of India. The event will be coordinated by Birla Vidya Niketan.

The competitions will include poster-cum-slogan making, quiz, folk dance etc. The competitions will be open for primary, middle and senior schools. On-the-spot prizes and certificates would be issued.

The teachers accompanying the school children will also participate in a two-hour workshop on health and hygiene. Entry to the Mela will be free.

School age is the right time for health education, as most lifestyle disorders start at that age. Blockages of arteries supplying blood to heart and brain start in adolescence. Correct lifestyle, therefore, in adolescence is very important.

Heart Care Foundation of India recommends that artificial junk food should be banned altogether in the vicinity of schools.
