SURYA NAMASKAR SUNDAY: Dwarka's Raahgirs started their Sunday off
in a fun and fit way with yoga asanas, dance, music and comedy . This Raahgiri Day, presented by The Times of India, saw many participate in yoga and aerobics, and the road was covered with colourful yoga mats as yoga enthusiasts tried asanas taught by the instructor from Yog Youngistan.
GROOVES & MOVES: Many showed off their bhangra moves to Bollywood beats, while others tried some hip hop. Two women even got on the TOI stage and performed a jugalbandi on Chittiyan Kalaiyan. City-based band Parindey performed popular numbers like Gulaabi Aankhe Jo Teri Dekhi, while an impromptu performance by a Dwarka resident, Rishav, who sang Tujhko Jo Paya on stage, won the hearts of Raahgirs. Many watched the street play, Shiksha Parmo Bhram by Soch, on child labour and child education.
SPREADING AWARENESS: A National Disaster Response Force team of 20 men conducted awareness camps and gave tips to Raahgirs on dealing with natural disasters like flood, tsunami, earthquakes, and building collapse. “I learnt how to make a life jacket with empty plastic bottles,“said Pallavi,a third year student from Janki Devi Memorial College. A memebr of the NDRF civil defence personnel, Jaganram Manjhi, said, “We're conducting this drive at CP and Dwarka today .
