The Fit India Movement, which was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the year 2019, launched its annual 'Fit India School Week' program in December the same year.
It is dedicated to encourage schools to develop fitness habits in students and to increase awareness about fitness and sports.
This edition has added two mascots named "Toofan and Toofani" to its flagship, with both representing India's fittest superheroes and superwomen.
To make the mascots more connected to the sport, they have been given superpowers such as wind sprinting (athletics), car lifting (weightlifting) and concentration skills (chess).
They connect with people by narrating various stories about sports and fitness thereby motivating, educating and encouraging them.
