LAKSHYA (Looking at Knowledge in Sports and Help Youth Achieve) is a city based Non Profit Sports Organization which identifies and nurtures talented sports persons to help them achieve glory in Sports. Lakshya is currently supporting over 30 budding sports champions in the six disciplines viz. Shooting, Chess, Tennis, Wrestling, Boxing, Badminton & Cricket.
