      Wow, nice. Looking fwd to more walkathons. In todays cities, the foothpaths are fast shrinking, guess need to enjoy these walks while they last.

      This is an old insight and a travel activity outside India. It is called City Walks where group of people are taken by guided walk to historic places which are spread across a road in the middle of the city. In photography world, it is called Photo walks, where a tutor leads a group of new photographers across a historic monument or area like Hampi or vatican for example.

      I have written about such walks or treks earlier as well as part of my travelogue threads. i rediscovered the joy of walking some 3 months ago. initially it was not joy or fun, actually it was pain in the legs and joints after the walk, later body pain. but over period of 2-3 weeks, the pain disappeared and the pleasure or joy of walking re-surfaced. since then no looking back. i have walked over 1050+ KMs so far in last over 85 days.

      In last 3 months, i have walked to many of my business meetings, shopping visits with wife, mall visits with family, visits to lakes in north bengaluru etc. one do not need foot paths for walking. one needs willingness. " Have feet, will walk " kind of spirit. my understanding is most indians do not like to walk. they prefer riding vehicles or worst, they want servants to run errands for them.
