A group of enthusiasts organised a cycle rally in Bengaluru for a social cause.


Bengaluru. When most of the "namma bangalorians" were looking forward to savour their morning cuppa or catch up with their weekend sleep, a group of young IT professionals did not miss the opportunity to hit the city roads at quarter past six on a Sunday morning to cycle 25 Kms, for a cause.

This group of enthusiasts joined hands for Project Utthaan - All India Music Album launch, a CARTMAN initiative which aims to fund the education of underprivileged children of the beneficiary / partners of the NGO.

Hundreds of volunteers participated in the cycle rally organized by Utthaan team in collaboration with Go-Green group. The start point was CARTMAN society, Koramangala. The group cycled along the Ejipura-Domlur-Trinity Cirlcle-Brigade Road-Austin Town route and back, to spread awareness and support for the music album launch by Project Utthaan, which is dedicated  to realising the dreams of these underprivileged children.

Project Utthaan will be launching the Music Album in collaboration with the TV show SA RE GA MA on May 26th, 2012 at Mount Carmel auditorium, Bangalore.

Agnel Roman (Music Director of Ragini MMS movie) has scored the music, written lyrics for the songs and trained the talented kids from Kadesh Children's home. This project intends to raise funds, in phases, and thereby help enhance these children's quality of life.

The bicyclers dressed in Project Utthaan T-shirts generated curiosity among the onlookers, as the rally passed from koramangala and brigade road.

The cycle rally volunteers campaigned for the music album, which is a compilation of the songs sung by the children of Kadesh Children's Home (Orphanage). There are 6 peppy tracks, in the album.

The volunteers also conducted drawing competition and games for the NGO children to keep the spirit of the event high.

Utthaan Project is a CARTMAN society initiative, which sets to empower lesser privileged children. CARTMAN was founded in 1989, by Padma Bhushan award winner Professor. N.S. Ramaswamy, who is also the founding director of IIM Bangalore and ex-director of NITIE Mumbai.
