This walk will begin and end at Chhappan Dukan and will take you through Lantern Square and High Court. The walkathon will be attended by distinguished district citizens, school kids, NCC cadets, and government officials-employees.

On the same day, from 2 to 9 p.m., a millets fair will be held in Chhappan Dukan. During the fair, millets will be widely publicised.

There will also be debate programmes about the use of millets. Along with this, food makers will organise an exhibition connected to 'Shree Anna,' i.e. millets, and food items prepared from various millets will be presented at Chappan Dukan. During the fair, there will also be a cultural programme. It was learned that numerous competitions will be held at the fair.

The tournament 'Hum Hai Jagruk, Hum Hai Eat Right Nagrik' is being organized (we are conscious, we are Eat Right Citizens). The goal of this competition is to spread the message of developing new and healthy eating habits and encourage individuals to include millets in their daily diets.
