Walking for a Cause


The time has come for Ragu Rajamani and his two daughters, Nithya Rubhini and Nithya Darshini, to embark on their Merdeka Walk once again this year. This time round the difference  is, his son Surya, 8, will be joining them.

Walking for a Cause

The idea of the walk was initiated by Rubhini, 14, to show her love for the country. Ragu, 38, gave his tacit support and was joined in by his other daughter, Nithya Darshini, 11.

The foursome will start their Merdeka walk this year on August 5 and hope to finish before the Hari Raya celebration at the end of the month. The walk will cover a staggering 1329 km, crossing a total of 63 cities, starting from Johor Bahru all the way to Perlis. A celebratory lucky draw will be held on September 1 at Dewan Orang Ramai, Taman Meru, Jelapang at 7.30pm.

Short on funding, Ragu hopes to get sponsors to aid him in his endeavour. The cost will cover expenses needed for logistics such as shoes, medicine, accommodation, board and so on.
