The government’s initiative to be a fit India has got a new inspirational story of an IAS officer posted in Meghalaya.

Ram Singh, the Deputy Commissioner of West Garo Hills, every week, walks ten km to buy vegetables and other produce that are locally grown.

Ditching plastics, he prefers to carry locally-made bamboo basket for his shopping. Singh’s initiative towards preserving nature and maintaining a healthy lifestyle has impressed the internet.

His pictures and inspirational story is going viral as it surfaces on the social media platforms, giving him media coverage.

“21kgs of weekend organic Vegetables shopping, No plastic, no vehicular pollution, no traffic jam, Fit India, Fit Meghalaya, Eat Organic, Clean & Green Tura , POSHAN , 10km morning walk,” Singh’s Facebook post reads.

The bamboo basket that he carries on his back is used by tribals at the state to carry firewoods.

Singh was quoted in media reports that his motive behind his “walkathon” was to avoid traffic snarl, vehicle parking issues and most importantly to stay fit.
