A glimpse of vibrant community we build.
From the Desk of the Jt. MD
I hope you are keeping safe and healthy.
I hope you and your family are keeping safe. I request all of you to follow COVID-appropriate behavior and protocols and get vaccinated. This is essential if we are to save ourselves from this pandemic. Due to the 2nd wave of the pandemic, we skipped a quarter. It’s a relief that things are getting better and life has started getting back to normal. The vibrancy in our projects has always been a key factor and I am glad to see so many events and activities taking place with safety protocols being followed.
I am pleased to share some highlights of the last 6 months:
• Jashn-7: The Inter-Ashiana Senior Sports & Cultural
festival was streamed online
• Ashiana Nirmay, Bhiwadi and Ashiana Dwarka, Jodhpur were successfully launched
• Occupancy in Ashiana Anmol, South of Gurgaon has reached 175 with very few units left
• Our sales target of 1100 units for last year was achieved despite the troubled times
• COVID vaccination was organized for our Senior Living residents.
Our theme for the year is NEED FOR SPEED to ensure timely delivery. Despite a lot of challenges like a
shortage of labour and material, our team is confident that we will be able to catch up and deliver our products to our consumers on time.
Another bit of great news is that we have signed new land deals in Gurgaon and Pune and we are all excited about creating homes in these new locations. I thank you all for your consistent love and support. With my best wishes to you and your families,
Highlights of the Quarter

Started the New Year with our Temple Inauguration.
Seniors witnessed the thrill of our cultural extravaganza online.

Health & Hygiene at Phoolwari
Maintaining health and hygiene was the need of the hour to keep the premises safe for children. We followed procedures and a healthy routine with physical activities and games to ensure kids' fitness levels.
Welcoming the Spring Season
The kids held on to the moments of joy and festivity by celebrating Makar Sankranti & Lohri with great energy. Clad in cultural attire, dancing around the bonfire, and flying kites, they enjoyed every bit of it.
Holi - The Festival of Colours
Keeping the festive spirit alive, children at Phoolwari played “Phoolon ki Holi”, spreading love, color, and joy, evoking a sense of community amidst the pandemic.
The Learning Never Stops
Encouraging kids to pursue their innate curiosity to learn, we introduced new concepts through various activities & experiments each month. Sink & Float, learning about the Solar System, and Planet Earth were just a few of the highlights.
Each year children from Phoolwari are enrolled in Government Schools for elementary education. This year too, with a need to secure their future, 38 kids from Jaipur & Bhiwadi were presented certificates & promoted to the next grade.
With a need to provide a better environment for kids, we selected 2 new Government Schools in Keshopura & Jhai village, Jaipur, to renovate & upgrade the structure of the old buildings for better classrooms, washrooms & more.
Preserving Mother Earth
Earth Day & World Environment Day were celebrated with high enthusiasm in Phoolwari. Planting saplings, making paper bags, and small pots from waste products helped the kids understand the need to save the environment.
Kids expressed their love for their Dads by making cards and crafts items in celebration of Father’s Day. With most fathers visiting Phoolwari on this special day, the kids were thrilled to showcase their creativity for their loving Dads.
Act Now, End Child Labour!
Creating awareness of the harmful mental & physical problems faced by kids forced into child labour is an absolute necessity. We observed World Day against Child Labour by organizing a special session for kids to understand its significance, followed by a creative activity expressing the thought of “Saying NO to Child Labour“.
