A Day Free of Screeching Brakes and Horns

KBS Foundation is planning to hold a Car Free Day on February 21 and will encourage use of cycling and spread awareness about reducing emission.KBS Foundation is a non-profit and charitable organisation, based on community participation. It was formed by committed citizens of Khar, Bandra and Santa Cruz who have come together to voice common concerns of citizens . They want to fulfil an objective of greener surroundings by going eco-friendly and by taking measures to tackle global warming. "We have embarked on a mission to motivate people to take up cycling. To popularise cycling we plan to have many events on a sustainable basis, one being Car Free Day (CFD). This will engage people including school children, college students, housewives, professionals and businessmen to come out and enjoy a day of sports, entertainment and outdoor activities," said Ranjiv Jhangiani, trustee of KBS Foundation. In the past, the organisation has organised film screenings on cycle-friendly cities at Carter Road open air amphitheatre that had an attendance of 100 cyclists and over 200 viewers. The foundation of Car Free Day is to change the attitude of residents towards car use and get an alternative experience of better quality of life. The participants will be citizens and famous personalities. Ranjiv added, "I request residents not to wait for another 'Copenhagen' summit, rather wage a battle against climate change by organising small initiatives in the neighbourhood. We have already installed solar lights along the promenade's extension. Let us motivate the authorities for a Car Free Day to awaken Mumbai to the imperatives of tomorrow." The event will be inaugurated by flagging off a cycle, walking and skating rally. Throughout the route recreational activities like dance, aerobics, yoga, laughter club activities, mangrove protection drive will be organised. In addition to this, there will be tai chi, boat racing, aeromodelling, games, art initiatives, music concert, fashion show, painting and chess contests and a host of other recreational and fitness activities. Prominent citizens of Bandra like actor Salman Khan will help take this initiative forward. Locals have pledged their support to this noble cause and organised a Mumbai Cyclothon. Residents' associations, ALMs, housing societies, civic officials and students from schools and colleges will also be intimated about the elaborate plans in due course. "We seek whole hearted participation to make this event a grand success," says Ranjiv Jhangiani, trustee, KBS Foundation. KBSF has submitted a proposal for construction of 15 km dedicated cycle lanes for Bandra and Khar to the chief minister Ashok Chavan with the help of MP Priya Dutt and MLA Baba Siddiqui. The residents have proposed that the funding for the same will come from the JNNURM project from the Ministry of urban development. KBS Foundation's effort to initiate the 'dedicated cycle lanes for Bandra-Khar' pilot project is led by Ranjiv Jhangiani and supported by Seema Tiwari, managing trustee and strategic partner Centre for Active Transport (CAT). The mission of CAT is to create equitable cities with good quality of life based on zero pollution mobility by active citizenship and community mobilisation.
