Richa Bhatnagar from Anytime Fitness, Noida, is joining the trend by planning her next Zumba session around Ram bhajans. She says, “After seeing the video, I loved the idea. I’m always searching for songs for my workout sessions, and what could be trendier than practising Zumba to Ram bhajans? It’s my way of paying homage to Ram and this historic moment (the Ram Temple consecration).” Prince Aadvanshi, co-founder of FFW Fitness in Mundka, Delhi, says, “Given the current buzz around Ayodhya, we opted to play bhajans and songs associated with Ram and have been integrating deadlifts, yoga, zumba, weight training and various workouts with Hanuman Chalisa, Ram bhajans, and mantras.”
