A glimpse of vibrant community we build.
From the Desk of the Jt. MD
I hope you are keeping safe and healthy.
Like most of us, I too could never have imagined that I’d be witness to a pandemic in my lifetime. My early reaction was one of fear; a doomsday scenario. However, as time went by, my attitude changed. I learnt so much and most of it from the manner in which the Ashiana team handled matters during the pandemic. The experience has made me very proud to be part of a team of such resilient, caring and efficient people. I cannot thank our Ashiana team enough for how they rallied around.
My heartfelt thanks also to our customers for their support during these very tough times.
I’d like to share some of the amazing things achieved by Team Ashiana during this time:
• We set up a very high goal for consumer happiness and achieved it by safely keeping to commitments, attending to matters and continuing with regular events.
• We set up a protocol to be followed if any resident or employee got COVID and this was stringently followed in all projects.
• Thankfully, not even one of our labourers got COVID which is a sign of good protocol and discipline.
• The organization moved swiftly to online meetings and online Site vlslts.
• Our Supermoms moved all the teaching and interaction online.
• Our construction started right on time after the lock-down was lifted.
I am grateful that I have been blessed with great people around me. The pandemic is not over yet and therefore all of you, please stay safe and healthy.
Always keep smiling!
