Nagpurians have a fun-filled morning at Walkers Street at Green Street Carnival

Centre for Research and Innovation in Urban Planning and Architecture (CRIUPA), on November 1, gave Nagpurians a refreshing and fun-filled morning as it organised the Green Street Carnival to spread awareness about sustainable mobility at Walkers Street in Civil Lines.

As part of the carnival, which was organised in association with The Times of India and Nation Next and Radio Mirchi as the media partners, the 600m stretch of road at Walkers Street was blocked from 6 am to 9 am and various fun activities were conducted along the stretch.

While many people joined in at the carnival as they had previous knowledge about it, for regular joggers at Walkers Street it was a pleasant surprise. With fitness activities like Zumba, Yoga, Aerobics, cross fit stations, etc., Green Street Carnival was not only successful spreading awareness about the importance of being fit, it also gave a chance to early risers to have a memorable experience. Apart from fitness related activities, the carnival also gave a chance to people in indulge in different games.

The carnival apart from being high on fun was also instrumental in spreading awareness about important issues. Students from CEPT University, Ahmedabad, addressed various environmental concerns. Many other students were seen holding placards promoting safe driving, tree plantation, safeguarding of environment etc. Members of the Global Shapers community in Nagpur also encouraged the people to use bicycles when commuting to a distance of 1km or less. A babywearing flash mob was instrumental in spreading awareness about the right way of babywearing.

Post the Green City Carnival, three Pop-Up Parks were set up on the stretch of road from VNIT Gate at Bajaj Nagar to Shraddhanand Square. As part of the activity, green patches were set up on the sidewalks and various activities were conducted at the park. The idea behind the pop up parks was to reclaim the roads.

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.



The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
