August unfolded as a month of remarkable jubilation at Growel’s 101, marking its illustrious 13-year reign as the cherished family haven in the Western Suburbs of Mumbai. The anniversary was commemorated with an array of fun activities, featuring a grand cake cutting and mesmerising performances by professional dance groups.
Throughout August, an array of exceptional occasions graced the calendar, including Friendship Day, celebrating the profound bonds of friendship; Raksha Bandhan, honouring the cherished ties between siblings; Independence Day, paying tribute to our martyrs and the spirit of India; and the momentous Chandrayaan 3 Lunar Landing, an achievement that filled every Indian’s heart with pride.
Speaking about the crafting engaging activities at Growel’s 101 Mall, Gerald Mathew, General Manager Operations, Growel’s 101 Mall, said, “At Growel’s 101 Mall, we take pride in crafting an immersive and enjoyable experience for our valued customers. We firmly believe that malls are not merely shopping spaces; they are vibrant community hubs that foster connections and craft enduring memories.

We envision Growel’s 101 Mall as a place where families and friends can come together, celebrate life’s milestones, and forge lasting connections, making it more than just a mall; it’s a place where memories are born and cherished.”
To commemorate Friendship Day, Growel’s 101 Mall in Kandivali organised a series of captivating events, such as the group Treasure Hunt, aptly titled ‘Unite Your Squad for Dosti Manao and Prize Le Jao’, Tarot Card Readings, and a 360-Degree Photobooth for memorable Instagram Reels. These engaging activities offered patrons the opportunity to delve deeper into meaningful connections, forging new memories through delightful experiences. The Treasure Hunt witnessed the enthusiastic participation of 60 individuals, forming ten groups of six each. Two teams that successfully reached the endpoint ahead of the rest were declared winners and were presented with generous hampers valued at Rs. 15,000 and Rs. 10,000, respectively, for the first and second positions.
In celebration of the bond between siblings, Growel’s 101 Mall organised the ‘Spread the Joy’ workshop in collaboration with the Suryoday Trust, an NGO dedicated to empowering specially-abled children to become self-sufficient and well-integrated members of society. The Rakhi Making workshop saw children aged 4 to 16 participating with enthusiasm. Suryoday Trust also exhibited handmade rakhis, bags, and other products for mall visitors to purchase, thereby supporting these exceptional children.
Commemorating India’s Independence Day on the 15th of August, Growel’s 101 Mall conducted its annual flag hoisting ceremony, led by the dedicated security team and attended by employees and staff. Furthermore, the mall organised photography contests, quiz competitions, a Rubik’s Cube corner installation, and a Blood Donation Camp to amplify the festive fervour.
August’s excitement reached its zenith with the triumphant landing of Chandrayaan 3. The momentous event was streamed live within the mall, saturating the atmosphere with national pride and unbridled enthusiasm. Indeed, the excitement seemed to transcend even the boundaries of our planet. At the onset of August, in anticipation of the pride swelling in the hearts of every Indian over ISRO’s lunar mission, Growel’s 101 Mall unveiled an Instagram selfie-point adorned with a lunar and Chandrayaan 3 theme.
