Have a great Sunday with mix of fitness and fun

Written By Unknown on Minggu, 28 Desember 2014 | 22.23

Equal Streets is back tomorrow. Last Sunday saw between 45-50,000 people swarming the 6.5km Bandra-Santacruz stretch that's closed to motorized vehicles from 7 to 11am. Now in its eighth-edition, the movement is brought to Mumbai by NGOs, think tanks, citizens' associations and cycling groups and supported by the BMC, Mumbai police and The Times of India. The goal is to remind Mumbaikars that pedestrians and cyclists should have equal access to public roads, which are currently dominated by cars.

The streets will play host to numerous activities including capoiera (a form of Brazilian martial arts), yoga, cycling, zumba, meditation, arts and crafts workshops, net cricket and football, amongst several others, offering up something for kids and adults alike.

One of the most popular workshops is Go Green's "Make Your Plants", which provides kids with indoor and outdoor plants for free, teaching them how to properly pot the plants. "We run out of 600 plants by 9am. So we've started carrying more with us every Sunday because even the adults want to take home a plant and we can't say no," said Mayuri Soni, the business coordinator of Go Green nursery.

For the artistically inclined, there are workshops on pop-up card and mask making, Origami art and street graffiti for children. And occupied kids often make for happy parents. Santacruz-resident Jankhani Patel, who had 2-year-old twins in tow, said, "Last time, I carried their tricycles and they enjoyed themselves. Prior to that we stopped at the tattoo stall and got stuff drawn on them. As long as they're happy, we'll keep coming back."
