This Sunday's Raahgiri, supported by The Times of India, turned out to be a day of aerobics and dance workout for fitness enthusiasts. The session at the TOI stage began with a performance by Heartfulness Institute which was followed by an aerobic session by Nishant of Active and Live Academy . The girls took to the stage and showed their moves on songs like Prem Ki Naiyya and Let's Nacho. The performance by Beats and Fusion Studio was what the crowd enjoyed the most.
RATTA MAAR: School kids, part of Involve (a social project on education), did a street play on the country's education system. Since class 10 results were announced on Saturday , parents and kids seemed more interested in listen ing to these kids. “Aajkal bachche science aur maths padhna hi nahi chahte.Woh padte toh hai, but unhe pata nahin hota hi kyoun padh rahe hain,“ said Komal Jain from Laxmi Nagar (referring to the play where a student gets conned by a street vendor). Shreshtha, a student, shared, “I study in DU. We know that we will not get marks until we write at least 7-8 sheets.I am studying Political Science toh usme yeh pata ho na ho ki politics mein kya ho raha hai, but baki theory padna bahut zaruri hai.“

After the aerobics session, Raahgirs preferred nimbu pani over water or any aerated drink. “I have danced so much, and though the weather is fine, but you cannot have chai in this weather. Nimbu pani healthy bhi toh hota hai,“ said Kanchan, a Laxmi Nagar resident. Rekha from Chandni Chowk added, “Main toh garmi ki wajah se le rahi hoon aur energy bhi mil jayegi.“ Manisha from Malka Ganj shared, “We have been here for a long time now. We walked the entire area and what can be better than nimbu pani in this weather?“
