Subsequently, a discussion was held featuring noted cardiac surgeon Dr. Akhil Govil, Director & HOD, Cardiac Surgery. During this discussion, attendees gained insights on the significance of regular exercise, a well-balanced diet, adopting a healthy and stress-free lifestyle, and ensuring adequate sleep for maintaining optimal heart health. Dr. Akhil stressed the importance of caring for heart health, emphasising that minor lifestyle mistakes can escalate into major issues down the road. Cyclist Amit Daga, in response to the event, expressed, "Cycling is an excellent exercise for maintaining good health, and its popularity is on the rise among the general public.
