The sea of youths continued to swell on the Marina beach on Friday and staged protests in multiple forms like forming human chains, taking out motorcycle rallies, playing folk music, dancing, singing and holding skit.
Oscar winning music maestro A R Rahman expressed his solidarity with protesters by going on a day-long fast today.

Five-time world chess champion Viswanathan Anand too extended his support to holding the bull-taming sport, saying it was a “cultural symbol”.
