The streets of Connaught Place turned into a dance floor
for Raahgirs on Sunday morning, as Dilliwallahs put their best foot forward at this week's edi tion of Raahgiri Day, supported by the Times of India.
The morning started with some fusion bhangra moves by dancers from Bhangrabics and Tangent, who performed a mix of bhangra and freestyle dance. The dance mania continued with a dance-off between boys and girls that saw the lovely ladies emerge victorious. Jaidev, a college student, said, “What better way to start a day than dancing? For me, this Raahgiri was perfect because everyone was dancing all over the place. I loved the energy here.“
This Raahgiri also saw a large number of foreign tourists and visitors enjoying the February morning. While some explored CP on cycles, others let their hair down and danced to some desi tunes . Veera, a Finnish national, who grooved to bhangra beats on the stage, said, “It was a wonderful experience. My friends and I went on stage as an impromptu decision and we had a lot of fun.“ There were free hugs on offer as well. Volunteers from the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) promoted the 2016 Earth Hour and spread the message of energy conservation by giving out free hugs.
