Raahgiri Day – A day without Motors

Raahgiri day an Internationally acclaimed car free citizen initiative started on July 13, 2014 in Delhi, was visited by our team today. One of the finest road events to be organised in our country. In simple words it is an event organised on weekly basis where in certain number of streets are closed to motor vehicles and made accessible to people. Citizens walk, play, bike,exercise on the streets with various other short events like stand up comedy and musical bands are organised from 6 AM to 9 PM on Sunday.

Surely not an automobile crazy event but something we all should participate in. The parking lots were full. People were playing football, basketball, hockey, skating, dancing on the streets. Will let the pictures do the talking.

The streets around the inner circle, Cannaught Place were cordoned off to restrict motor vehicles
Bicycles were provided to all free of cost and certain bikers were seen showing off their biking skills.
