Residents from high rise apartments and also from other sectors had fun-filled Sunday. They thronged in large numbers on road outside the Paramount Floraville, a residential apartment in Sector 137. They participated in Raahgiri, a physical fitness training camp and enjoyed it a lot.

People were so enthused for the event that they participated in it along with family including kids. They reached the venue well before the event started at sharp 7 am.      

Ankur Arora, a resident of the sector said that he was so excited for the event that he came for the event half an hour before it started. He said, “I enjoyed zumba dance a lot. I will participate in it whenever it will be organised in future. I would urge the authority, which is main organiser, to continue this practice in future.”

Kids were also busy in activities which were arranged for them. They brought their imagination on canvas as the organiser had made special arrangements for them. Besides drawing and painting, an event called army fit was also organised for them. A dedicated trainer imparted knowledge of how to remain fit from their earlier age.

The citizens also took part in Yoga session. Abhist Gupta, another resident said that though he was not feeling well today but the event was so enticing that he couldn't stop going there. He said, “I participated in the Yoga session. It was a good exercise session as it was conducted by experienced teacher.”

Shailendra Barnwal, a resident from Sector 73, said that the event was organised successfully. Things were in order as the Noida Developmennt Authority made elaborate arrangements keeping the requirements of senior citizens, men and women, youngsters and kids in mind.

Baranwal said, “The residents from high rise societies seldom participate in events. But, for Raahgiri event, it was totally different. They came out and participated in huge number. It was grand success for the organiser as residents were in thousands in number.”

Besides spreading message of reducing usage of cars and motors bikes among city residents, they were also administered oath to participate in the coming election on April 11.
