Running for a cause

Mumbai Marathon is probably one of the biggest Marathon in the country. The number of people participating, the number of athletes, the amount of prize money, the kind of media attention it draws, all the parameters are huge. I have been attending this event for the last three years. But this year the feeling was different. Since the event took place shortly after Mumbai Terror attacks people wanted to express their anger against such anti-social activities by coming out in large scale. The same happened also. The participation as well as the spirit, both were high. From RBI the participation was the highest ever, and it was the head of the institute who led from the front. With marine helicopters hovering overhead and cheerleaders and jazz band playing Bhangra and Rock respectively, it was really an experience to run on the marine drive.
