For the first time, a pre-puja mela will be organised by Swapna Bhor in association with Dignity Foundation. Scheduled to be held on the first weekend of September. Because of the rainy season, this will be held indoors, on the first floor banquet halls. The members of Swapna Bhor and Dignity Foundation are quite enthusiastic and are busy organising and creating awareness. About 35-40 stalls will be there including one by Cafe Ekante, Mother's Wax Museum etc.
Meanwhile, I had a review yesterday of the Snehochhaya being constructed now at a site just opposite to Swapna Bhor. Hidco Engineers, Consultant Architects (M/s Pace Consultants), Mackintosh Burn Ltd, Hitachi AC engineers and others were present. We are trying to make a demonstration unit before the Pujas whereafter we will launch the scheme. Already many inquiries are being received and we hope to be able to give possession by next year. Meanwhile we have published a notice inviting Expression of Interest from service providers (see http://wbhidcoltd.com/uploads/tender/Tender_1685.PDF ) , the last date being 31 August 2017.
