A prelude to ‘AIISH Awaz’ to be held in March.
As a promotional activity of ‘AIISH Awaz’ to be held in March, about 300 students and staff of All India Institute of Speech and Hearing (AIISH) took part in a Cycle-a-thon’ organised by AIISH in city this morning.
The event was flagged off by Dr. S.P. Goswami, HoD of Speech and Language Pathology, at MysoreOne Centre near Jayanagar Railway Gate here.
The Cycle-a-thon with the ‘Prevent Stroke, Preserve Communication’ theme passed through Krishnaraja Boulevard, Vani Vilas Road, Agrahara Circle, Basaveshvara Circle, Chamaraja Double Road, Ramaswamy Circle, MUDA Circle, Ekalavya Circle and concluded at the starting point.
The cyclists were provided cycles by the Mysuru City Corporation’s (MCC) Trin Trin scheme.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Goswami observed that vehicles had outnumbered pedestrians on road, thus rising noise and air pollution. He advised people to switch over to bicycles to preserve environment and for physical fitness.
He recalled that signal lights were very few during earlier days but now they are a necessity at every traffic junction owing to too many vehicles on roads.
AIISH Gymkhana Vice-President Dr. Animesh Burman was present on the occasion.
