They say, “Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
Keeping the positive effects of walking in our life in view, the Administration of Sonitpur District has taken one of the most favourable steps in Tezpur, after Jorhat and Guwahati. The administration has declared two streets of the town as Walking Zones in a meeting held at the Deputy Commissioner’s office, which implies that such streets shall remain vehicle free for a specific time of the day.
The street between Agnigarh to DIC and the street between Post Office to the Circuit House, declared as walking zones on 26th Oct shall remain devoid of vehicles from 5a.m to 7a.m and from 5 p.m to 7 p.m everyday.
Such an initiative taken by the administration is much appreciable as this will instigate the habit of walking and leading a healthy among the citizens of Tezpur. In this era of continuous pollution, walking has become an integral part of our living.
