Arjun Meghe is a youth activist who has been working tirelessly for the people of Worli for the last many years. “I noticed that a lot of Worlikars were catching virals and falling ill very often. To make fitness a part of the lives of Worlikars, we came up with the thought of Worli Games. I am very glad to see the participants do so well and be fitness-advocates.” said Arjun Meghe while talking to us.
