Young Delhiites hanging out in a crowded market on a Sunday is a common sight. But the West Patel Nagar market in the capital saw the unusual sight of youngsters in their vibrant attire cleaning the market with brooms in their hands and masks on their faces.
Numerous other crowded markets were also cleaned by the volunteers of the Art of Living NGO. Each drive lasted for around two hours with the timings varying between 9.30 a.m. and 1.30 p.m.
'This is a follow up of the Yamuna campaign and our main motive is the 'Clean Delhi-NCR Drive' which will take place Sep 6-12,' Rajeev Dhall, Art of Living's area coordinator for central Delhi, told IANS.
The initiative was started with the 'Meri Dilli Meri Yamuna', a campaign to clean up the Yamuna river in March this year by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of Art of Living. Hundreds of NGOs, organisations and corporates were part of the initiative.
