Mobile Phone throwing has become an international sport which started from Finland in the Year 2000. Finnish people came up with this idea for recreational purpose and to dissipate their frustration.
A part of the philosophy is also a spiritual freedom from being available all the time.
Since then this competition has been organized in the countries like Czech Republic (2012), United States (2008), Spain (2009), Liechtenstein (2010) Belgium (2010) UK (2005), Switzerland (2005) and others.
This is a great marketing gimmick for a greater cause. We admire Rotaract Club of Rudramati and Rotaract Club of Manohara for coming up with this idea and linking it up with social good. It will be held in Tundikhel on December 15 starting from 10 AM to 5 PM.
