Is immense. We experienced one such thing over the last weekend. It all started when the extended family came together for a house warming ceremony of a cousin, the weekend before. A discussion started about a 3K night walk for the cause of woman empowerment. Many got excited and wanted to give it a try.
Come Saturday evening, I made couple of calls and it was confirmed that about 11 of us would participate in the event. Post dinner, we assembled at the People’s Plaza to begin the walk. All of us were little sceptical about the cold, but it wasn’t a thing to worry owing to the crowd and the walk thereafter. The walk that was supposed to begin at 9:30 got delayed and began at about 10:30.
As soon as the walk began, we made sure that we moved to the front of the crowd, which would make us walk freely and fast enough. And then we walked and walked. And chatted. And shouted slogans. It was a nice feeling, walking with your family, out on the road, at so late into the night and shouting aloud. A ran for a while, walked the rest, panted for a while, but completed it quite successfully.
The concept of a walk was a first time experience for A, night walk was a first time experience for me and V, walk with a big group of family members is a first time experience for all of us. We enjoyed the whole experience and were back at home by quarter to 12.
Looking forward to more such first of the kind beautiful experiences….
