Cricket ‘Mazza’ all the Way at Father’s Day

India beat Pakistan once again in a World Cup series match and had all the cricket fans in the country ecstatic. The dads who had attended the Father’s Day celebrations at Rustomjee Urbania had an extra special time cheering for the Indian team as they had spent the morning making all the paraphernalia necessary to make it seem like they were cheering with the crowd in the stadium. After all, from the Indian point of view, this was the most important match of the series – a question of national pride!

The young generation has inherited the craze for cricket as was proved from the enthusiastic response at the Father’s Day celebrations at Rustomjee Urbania. Dads and kids got together to make pom-poms, banners and painted Indian flags – getting revved up to cheer for the Indian team in the evening. They also got into the groove and tried out the pom-poms in a dance that was high on energy and team spirit. With cricket in their DNA, it didn’t come as a surprise that the young ones were also able to come up with the right answers during the ‘cricket quizzical’.

One little girl was super excited to get a face tattoo in the Indian tri-colour, her words proved quite prophetic as she said, “I’m going to cheer for India in the evening and this is going to be my lucky tattoo – I just know we will win. Virat Kohli is my favourite cricketer and I’m going to do my pop-pom dance every time he hits a boundary.”

Well Virat may have just missed his chance at another century, but he certainly did his bit to ensure a victory for India. Here’s to all the dads who inspire the love for the sport and the country in their little ones – may their tribe continue to grow!

Rustomjee Plans Holi celebration exclusively for Toddlers

When it comes to childhood, it is the time for creating memories for both parents and kids. The most tender and cute moments are when kids are still toddlers and display the most adorable antics. Yet, this is also the time when parents are most protective of their kids and rightly so. This means that festivals like Holi are usually a ‘no go’ for the little kiddos for there is always the chance of some issue with their delicate skin or a greater possibility of eye infections due to the harsh Holi colours or that a child may get hurt due to the exuberance of older children or even adults.

Well, Rustomjee has made sure that the festival of Holi and all the fun associated with is is now available to the tiny tots as well. At the Festive Plaza there has been planned a Holi celebration like no other where only kids below 5 years of age and their parents may participate. It’s a Holi Playdate and ensuring that it’s completely safe and child friendly, Rustomjee will be providing herbal colours for the event as well. Music, dance, fun activities and merriment will be the order of the day.

So parents get your little tots together, keep your cameras at the ready and capture the fun memories at Rustomjee Urbania where childhood’s available!
