“Is hafte Raahgiri kaha hai?” (Where is Raahgiri this week?) is the question every resident of Noida asks to prepare themselves for the Saturday evening Sunset Raahgiri. People are thronging to the neighborhood of Noida sector 137 every Saturday to spend their evening walking, cycling and doing physical activity such as Zumba, aerobics, yoga and sports. Rajeev Tyagi, general manager of Noida Authority says “My phone at the office keeps buzzing with requests from various sectors to conduct Raahgiri. I now have a long list of sectors, where the residents are curiously waiting for Raahgiri to happen.”
Noida Sector 137 will conduct the 6th Sunset Raahgiri of Noida and India and 17th Raahgiri of Noida on Saturday 1st June 2019 from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Raahgiri is India’s first sustained car-free initiative where 1-5 kms of street is cordoned off to prohibit the entry of cars. The cordoned off street is used exclusively for walking, cycling, physical activities, sports, music and dance. Raahgiri is modelled after the event “Ciclovia" which started in 1976 in Bogota, Columbia. Raahgiri aims to promote road safety, sustainability, healthy living and inclusive community development.
This week at Sunset Raahgiri the various activities will consist of Zumba, yoga, aerobics, creative section where kids can draw and paint, selfie booths, sports zone for playing cricket, football, badminton and basketball and activity zone where the MC will conduct fun and interactive games for the audience. *To add more frolic to the event on PUBLIC DEMAND, this week there will be FOOD TRUCKS serving delicious cuisine.*
Noida Authority and Residents Welfare Association of Noida Sector 137 with The Raahgiri Foundation welcomes all the residents of Noida to attend Sunset Raahgiri on Saturday 1st June 2019 from evening 6:30 to 9:30 PM with their family and friends.
