Gymnasium at IG Hall inaugurated


Aligarh: Dr Hameeda Tariq, a renowned paediatrician, inaugurated the Gymnasium and unveiled the plaque at Indira Gandhi Hall, AMU on 8th February. While appreciating this new addition in the hall, she said that “mental and physical health of females is of paramount importance for a vibrant society”. Gym workouts also help prevent and control non insulin-dependent diabetes as increased fitness leads to better weight management, she added.

This was followed by teak plantation drive. Dr Hameeda planted the first teak sapling and said that,” it is a very beneficial step to make use of the wasteland for a green and clean campus and generate resources for the future.”

Professor Sheeba Hamid, Provost, while welcoming Dr Hameeda Tariq, said, “the Gymnasium was long due at Indira Gandhi Hall”. It is the support and encouragement of the Vice Chancellor which made it possible and now a huge area in the hall has been identified to develop into teak forest in future, she added.

Prof Naima Khatoon (Principal, Women’s College), Prof Nishat Fatima Zaidi (University Librarian), Prof Subuhi Khan (Provost, Begum Azizun Nisa Hall), Dr Ghazala Naheed (Provost, Abdullah Hall), Prof Asma Ali (Deputy DSW), Dr Faiza Abbasi (Director, UGC HRD Centre), Dr Anamika Gupta (Assistant DSW), Dr Sheeba Manzoor (Assistant Proctor) and Mrs Bushra Ghayas (Assistant Proctor) took part in the teak plantation drive.
