City residents can again flock to the Master Canteen to Ram Mandir Square stretch of Janpath to enjoy their Sunday mornings with a dose of sports, art, culture and fitness.

The first edition of Raahgiri, an initiative of the State government and city administration to connect to the city people for the Smart City Challenge, was quite a success with thousands gathering along the Janpath stretch and participating in activities of their interest. This time too, a number of sporting activities, cycling, cultural
performances and other highlights will be a part of the weekly event, informed Mayor Anant Narayan Jena.
