The Sunday Leader

Principal’s message

It is indeed with great pleasure and pride I pen down a message to the “Sunday Leader” feature, “Royal vs S. Thomas” which marks the significance of 136th Battle of the blues to be held on the 12th 13th and 14th of March at the SSC grounds.

Cricket is never a predictable game. Thus it binds the spectators with eagerness and enthusiasm to witness the victory or defeat retaining the same spirit in them, with their eyes wide open and minds fully occupied. Cricket is considered as “The gentlemen’s game” because it undoubtedly involves high intellectual abilities and requires moral conduct.

Battle of the Blues, the traditional encounter which is one of the most prestigious events in the cricket  arena brings players of domestic cricket into the limelight and gives them an opportunity to display their prowess on the field. Alumni of both colleges make this event an opportunity to strengthen the camaraderie and the exemplariness displayed by these two renowned institutes has been followed by many.

This year Roy- Tho is poised for some exhilarating cricket with many exciting displays of batting and bowling on the cards for fans young and old to enjoy.Cricket fans from the Royal College fraternity as well as others from all over the world get together to make history.I believe that we all can be proud protectors of our great heritage if only we keep in mind that behaviour unbecoming of gentlemen jeopardizes this entire noble enterprise.

I should extend a word of thanks to the match organising committee for the enormous efforts made and the tiresome work done.My gratitude is deserved by the most valued sponsors whose patronage is immeasurable.

I send my whole-hearted wishes to both the Royal and Thomian teams and look forward to witness the victory of the best.
