Offering sweets, money or clothes to sister on Bhai Dooj is passé. Brothers are devising new ways to ‘please’ their sisters on this auspicious day so that its memory remains itched in her mind forever. Businessmen Alok Gupta and Anurag Gupta are brothers. While Alok has two sons – Dev and Naman, Anurag has two daughters Chhavi and Gauri. The Guptas decided to celebrate the festival as a fun day and help their children create memories that will be treasured for long.
Hence, both families drove to an aero sports centre at Paliya. “We want our kids to bond with each other and always remember the festival of Bhai Dooj. Hence, we planned an adventurous day for them to remember,” said children’s mothers Mihika and Vinita. “Such engaging activities are a must to create bonding among children, especially cousins,” they said.
“We only talk about generation gap and problems with social media. We must work on solutions like such adventures and sports that help us bond with each other in real life,” Alok said.The centre at Paliya is owned by 43-year-old petrol pump owner Rudhir Pahwa. He underwent a month’s training in Delhi to learn flying paramotor before importing it from the USA last October.
His efforts and investment have paid off. His aero adventure not only helps him create memories with his family, but also attract people. “My friends wanted to try it their friends and so on, so I decided to turn it into a business and keep the adventure going,” Pahwa said.
