"Around 30,000 students from 200 schools of the city will preform suryanamaskar on Monday to pay tribute to Swami Vivekananda and Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad-III on Ansuya Leprosy Ground in the city," Vrajesh Shah, sanchalak of Vadodara unit of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and a member of SVSSSS, announced at a press conference on Friday.
Shah said physical training teachers of these schools had already been given students training of suryanamaskar.
Around 5,000 students of 104 schools run by Municipal School Committee of Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) would also be part of the exercise.
"Parallel events of performing suryanamaskar would be held at 300 places across country as part of celebrations to mark 150th birth anniversary of Vivekananda," Shah further said.
The programme would begin at 9 am. Former cricketer Atul Bedade and many other present and retired sports persons would remain present, Shah added.
