This week's ‘Raahgiri’ turns out a prelude to Holi - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: The tenth week of ‘Raahgiri’ day was celebrated on Sunday and it turned out a prelude to Holi on the usually busy Madhapur-Gachibowli stretch.

In the 1.2 km stretch between Mind Space and Biodiversity Park in Hitech City, hundreds of citizens shook a leg, played Holi, sang, performed skits and played in the middle of the road without a single motor vehicle in sight.

The pilot project has been conceived and executed by TSIIC (Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation) in association with Cyberabad Traffic Police and various voluntary, professional and leisure forums.

The aim of the project is restore the right of pedestrians over Hyderabad’s roads by avoiding transport and indulging in physical activity like dance, play, walk, cycle or exercise for a few hours every week.

Jayesh Ranjan, Vice Chairman and MD, TSIIC, said that the event might be extended from the existing 1.2 km to 1.9 km till the Cyber towers after a couple of weeks. He added that the concept may be introduced in Banjara Hills and Secunderabad in future.
