Starting this week, Sunday mornings will be fiesta of health and delight as denizens of Ranchi will take to the streets, revelling the day of rest exercising and dancing.
Of a mind to propagate healthy lifestyle practices and promote greener modes of commuting, Ranchi Municipal Corporation (RMC) has decided to dedicate a 1.75 kilometre long stretch between Jaipal Singh Stadium and Mission Chowk, via Shaheed Chowk, Albert Ekka Chowk and Sarjana Chowk, from 6:00 am to 10:00 am on Sundays for an amalgamation of sports, health and recreational activities, named Raahgiri.
The stretch will be declared vehicle-free too and can only be traversed through one of the three means – on foot, bicycle or roller skates. The unhurried pace of these modes of transportation will help those in attendance to enjoy and participate in the various activities
Participants can either workout in open gymnasium or attend yoga sessions, play several outdoor sports like badminton, volleyball, cricket and more or cycle and skate. Selfie Corner, Street Ludo, Citizen’s Cafe and Chaupal and Creative Corner can be opted by those who want to keep off the rigorous activities.
