The week veered from the modern Mother’s Day celebrations to the traditional Akshaya Tritiya, keeping everyone on their toes
The weekend saw the Mother’s Day mania everywhere. From malls to supermarkets to salons, everyone seemed to get a sudden surge of love for mommy. Well, good for moms. Any reason to celebrate a day, frankly. An empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description, just like mothers. A flash mob held at Inorbit Mall on Sunday at the central atrium celebrated the same. The mall came to a standstill when the youngsters did a quick jig to a popular number, extolling mother.
Meanwhile young and dynamic Sathvika Gupta, Director of Sathvika Fire Services, organised an unprecedented event in Hyderabad for moms. Actresses, models and socialites came together for the event which saw a guest list that included Poojasree , Neelima, Ashish Gandhi ,Vineeta Surana, Geet Gupta, Mansi Gulati and others.
Again, both stores and shoppers needed an excuse to shop. So the auspicious Akshay Tritiya on Monday, known to be the festival of the elite thanks to the sentiment of buying gold and diamonds, threw up offers and discounts for all. Manepally Jewellers came up with a timely collection. We also saw designer store Mebaz unveiling its summer pret collection with its new branch at Kothapet. Actress Nyra and her team showcased the collection which had lots of vibrant pinks and gold.
Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and her daughter, also an actress Soha Ali Khan came together for the #ShareTheLoad campaign. Hyderabad loves the graceful actress and she was at her charming best.
