Gurugram glued to pre-Diwali melas

With Diwali, the most awaited festival of India, is round the corner Gurugram comes alive to  pre-festival melas (fairs). For the residents who are already in a festive mood, these melas come in handy to chill out. While offering shopaholics a platform where they can shop till they drop, as the saying goes, these fairs, this time around, are designed to send out a message of green Diwali.

One such mela was organised at La Lagune, a society in Sector 54, for the residents and visitors alike to keep the spirit fervour alive.

Organisers of the mela also set up an eco- zone in keeping with the theme of eco-friendly Diwali. Vandana Bali, one of the organisers, said, “We wanted to create awareness among the people to be connected with the environment. Our society has already taken several steps including waste segregation, water conservation and annual plantation drive.”

She further said, “Through this eco-zone, we have tried to showcase the eco-friendly options available in the market. We want to encourage the residents to adopt them in their lifestyle as it is the need of the hour and make more conscious efforts towards saving the environment.”

Several activities including dance-drama by the students from Hisar, cloth bag distribution by the kids, live demo on waste segregation and composting was a part of the celebration.

Kavita Bansal, a resident of the society, said, “Our aim is to celebrate green Diwali and spread the message to protect the environment for the next generation.”

The evening was full of fun-filled games, activities, kiosks and stalls offering scrumptious cuisines.

A fashion show showcasing resident community of the society wherein different groups including yoga team, morning walkers, eco warriors and many others walked the ramp.

The vibrant stalls offered myriad shopping items such as diyas, jewellery, home furnishings, handmade products, handicrafts among others.

A variety of mouth-watering cuisine ranging from Chinese, Continental and Indian street food was also served for the gastronomes.
