Glimpse into the 7th Raahagiri Day in Odisha capital

Odisha Sun Times Bureau
Bhubaneswar, Feb 28:
Raahagiri day in its 7th week rolled in with heightened enthusiasm with Bhubaneswarites putting their best foot forward in almost every zone of the street.
The eye-catch element of this Raahgiri edition was “Fun with Robo” which was initiated for the first time by city-based SakRobotix. Besides children, elders too got excited to witness a talking robot. Interestingly Odia actor Papu Pom Pom and mythological figure “Kamsa” also giggled with the crowds while making rounds of the venue.

Looks like people are soon catching up with the primary objective of Raahgiri day which is to curb vehicular traffic, as much possible. With the awareness building in more, the street on Sunday mornings are truly becoming socially livable.
This incredible initiative by Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation has become very popular in the city and keeps on getting bigger and better, as is evident in the official Facebook page of Bhubaneswar-Smart City.
