Off late Bangalore has seen a steep rise in exotic fruit sales by street vendors. Fruits like strawberries, figs, peaches, lychees and plums which were considered exotic and expensive at one time can now be seen sold alongside unripe ‘totapuri’ mangoes, cucumbers and guavas smeared with salt and chilli powder at every other street corner.

This in a way is symbolic of the progress that Bangalore has made over the last decade making its presence felt on the world map.

The “Team Asha Team 8K, 2009″ is a running event organized by Team Asha. The primary objective of this event is to create awareness about Asha’s efforts and kick start our Team Asha “Training” programs.

Terrain and location
The entire route is scenic with lush greenery and beautiful streams lacing the landscape of Valley school. The terrain will be a mix of road, soft trail and even stretches of rugged rock trails with some steep uphills. Beginners or first timers are advised to walk the uphills cautiously.

Who can run?
Anyone above the age of 10 can participate in the run. We will have children from multiple Asha supported efforts running along with us on June 20th.

Prizes
The event’s objective is to go beyond the usual ‘need for speed’ and make this a wholesome event. The event is about bringing together adults and children from varying backgrounds with running as a unifying factor. Prizes would be awarded for different aspects of running together rather than just speed. There will be interesting categories for prizes and every participant will get a T-shirt as memorabilia.

If only they loved their job, things would have been different. So what does it take to find your calling? And what does it take to actually live it? Try to find out the answers from a few real people who are living their dreams, shall we? Let’s listen to them as they talk their story…
