In 1961, a few youngsters in Railway Grounds got together to form a team. Their aim was to form a cricket team, enjoy games and participate in local tournaments. Fire with Enthusiasm and aiming for the sky, this dedicated band of youngsters transformed this into a Sports & Cultural Trust to promote and encourage sport among youngster. The trust is involved in sponsoring promising talents and also provides sports materials to various government school. The trust is also involved in philanthropic activities like sponsoring meals for poor students at schools in and around Bangalore.
