About Powai Sharadotsav

Powai Sharadotsav, a sociocultural initiative of Spandan Foundation, was started in 2013. Traditionally, autumn has been a season of celebration in most parts of the country. We adopted Durga Puja as the anchor for celebrating the autumn festival and presented to the people of Mumbai. Mumbai accepted the festival with open arms right from its first year. The idea of the festival was:

  • to get people together with the purpose of celebration

  • to highlight some aspects of the great heritage of our country

  • to highlight a social issue that we all need to address together

  • to extend a helping hand to those in need of one

And the great city of Mumbai responds to our efforts with a lot of enthusiasm every single year.
