Festive fever in your homes
Starting off as an attempt to highlight the fun and festivity that is unique to Durga Puja celebrations in buildings and housing complexes, KKN Group of Companies presents The Telegraph Hand in Hand 2010 has indeed come a long way. Being held in 100 apartments across the city, this action-packed event promises four days of pure revelry, loaded with dance, music, games and, of course, a host of exciting prizes. An important aspect of this year’s Hand in Hand is that it has something for every member of the family, young or old. Sit-and-draw, spot quiz, antakshari and three-minutes-to-fame, as well as the more innovative Sriman Srimati and Pantaloons Style Icon male and female contests clearly promise to add more zing to this year’s festive entertainment.
