KIDS WANT TO WAKE UP EARLY FOR RAAHGIRI!
The beginning of summer vacations in schools was evident by the massive turnout at this edition of CP's Raahgiri Day, which is organised by Delhi Police and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) along with Embarq India and supported by the Times of India. “When schools are open, the kids don't want to wake early on Sundays. Now that the vacations are on, they were the ones who insisted on coming to Raahgiri,“ said Sagar Makhija, a resident of Jangpura.
Many were seen de-stressing as they gathered at the TOI stage and laughed at the crazy antics of the members of the Delhi Academy of Laughter Yoga. Vibra nium, a Delhi-based band, entertained the audience with tracks like Dil Chahta Hai and Seven Nation Army. Theatre lovers were seen enjoying a nukkad natak, Meri Dilli Meri Jaan, by Manzil Theatre Group that highlighted the various problems in Delhi. Volunteers of the Delhi Police also took out a rally at the venue, holding placards with messages encouraging safe driving, and student groups were spotted collecting funds for Nepal earthquake victims. Shabnam Kundra, deputy director, NDMC, who is present on every Raahgiri Day , said, “Raahgiri will be turning one in July. We have some big plans to celebrate the occasion.“
