Residents of Eldeco Utopia, Sector 93A in Noida on Wednesday gathered at the elaborate Teej haat. The haat had a variety of stalls — from mehndi kiosks, to stalls selling ornaments.
The Teej haat was the brainchild of four women who planned to organise a gala event for all residents. Manju Bhatia, Neeta Shankar, Divya Mishra, and Anjali Singh left no stone unturned to make the Teej a success and their efforts clearly showed. The event was organised by Happy and Healthy living, a resident group.
"I was worried about the weather, but I'm thankful that it didn't rain today," said Anjali Singh, one of the main people behind the idea. "My grandmother used to tell me keeping an inverted kadhhai in the balcony could appease the rain gods. I even did that," said Singh.
Ranjeev Anand was part of the event management team. He helped lend the haat a rustic feel that the organisers had visualised.
"The idea was to get together and have fun," said Divya Mishra. "We wanted all residents to have a really good time. That's all."
