Pedestrians reclaim their rights with ‘Raahgiri’
Hyderabad: A busy stretch in Madhapur was a picture of surprise on Sunday. Hundreds of citizens shook a leg, flew kites, sang, performed skits and played cricket bang in the middle of the road and all this without a single motor vehicle in sight.
It was a sort of ‘rebellion’ against automobiles, so to say, which occupy the streets, relegating people into the background, as if the roads don’t exist for them. Occupying the roads was an attempt to reconnect the average Hy-derabadi’s association with roads. Aptly named “Raahgiri”, this exercise was an inspiration from “Gandhigiri”.
