Wind world India Ltd. Daman is a pioneer in the manufacturing and installation of Wind turbines having their manufacturing plants located at Daman and installations being located in various states in India.
Looking at the enthusiasm of the people at Daman and around Daman and the attraction of the experience it has created in the first two events, we have decided to make it a timed event. Two aims :
Social cause for the Daman Wind Marathon is 'Clean Daman - Green Daman - Healthy Daman'. This cause has been adopted keeping in view the long term benefits of having a healthy environment and associate with running as a means of achieving a good personal health.
We are continuing with our concept of “ Run at no cost “ with primary goal to encourage running in the lives of people and provide with running experience in a top class event.
We have kept the running even with timing chips at minimum cost. We have also kept option of choosing to run without spending money on timing chips. However the prizes will be given only to those who run with the timing chips.
कि, दौडता ही चला जाता हूँ। सीमाओं को परास्त करता जाता हूँ ।। अपने हौंसलें आज़माना चाहता हूँ । अनोखा एक परिवर्तन लाना चाहता हूँ ।। रियाज़ दौड का जतन से करता हूँ । ये ज़िद सर आँखों पर रख कर निभाता हूँ ।। हर दौड जगाती एक आस और एक प्यास है । हर कोशिश दिलाती सफलता का एहसास है ।। बढाता रहूँगा जोश से हर कदम । रास्तों को मैं थकाना चाहता हूँ ।। मुश्किलों का सामना हंसकर करूंगा । उमींदों को सच कर दिखाना चाहता हुँ ।। लक्ष्य पर नज़र मेरी रहेगी हमेशा । मंजिंलों का सर झुकाना चाहता हूँ ।। भले ही मन कहे कि बस अब और नहीं । अपनी ज़िद दांव पर लगाना चाहता हुँ ।। १०, २१ या ४२ से क्या डरना । मानी हुई लगाम मैं तोडना चाहता हूँ ।। दवा दारू ईलाज, इन सब की ज़रूरत नहीं । मैराथन को स्वाथ्य का नुस्खा बनाना चाहता हूँ ।। रौंद कर आगे बढ जाता हूँ, शुक्रगुज़ार हूँ उस मिट्टी का । हर उत्सव मे रंग पाता हूं, शुक्रगुज़ार हूँ उस परमात्मा का ।। - Written by Sandeep Pandharkar
