What are the New Gurugrammers saying about the 3rd Raahgiri Day event?
“I moved in a week before to New Gurugram as a tenant. My flat is nearing completion, and I’m expecting possession soon after 8 years of long waiting. There were a lot of debates within our project group about the livability of the area. I have seen a lot of people saying that it will take a lot of time to develop the ecosystem around the area. For a person moved in with a skeptical mindset, the Raahgiri was an apt welcome. The enthusiasm, the energy and smiling faces of people around reassured me that my decision to move in was correct. Apart from promoting fitness and usage of non-polluting transportation, I could see that Raahgiri is effective in social connect and human bonding, and I could see that people here are willing to help each other. So far, every one of our family is enjoying the stay here and are happy that we moved here.”
Manoj NairResident of Bestech Park View Sanskruti
“This was the 1st time when I performed in front of a real audience. With the coordination of my friends, it was a great experience in Raahgiri.”
PrabhavResident of DLF New Town Heights Sector 86, Gurugram
“Raahgiri is a fantastic platform to express our ideas, thoughts, and experiences with our neighbours. On-street play Say No to Plastic, our young kiddos gave a message in an impressive manner to society.”
