Max Bupa Walk for Health Survey, a recent study on the walking behaviour of people in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore has revealed that one in two people feel less stressed, one in four people feel more socially active and productive at work after walking. Special Zumba dance session and health camps were organized for the participants at the sidelines of the event.
