Piramal Aranya is currently being developed by some of the foremost industry players from around the world, to provide an unparalleled lifestyle for its residents, and to foster an environment where the community thrives.
The Japanese Lantern Fiesta at The Aranya Festival will embody the culinary diversity of Japan, bringing visitors delights that are sweet, savoury, and delightful to all the senses. The Festival will be held on October 22 and 23, at Peninsula Corporate Park in Lower Parel, Mumbai.
The Festival is therefore a nod to the seamless integration of global talents.

Traditional Japanese dances, performances, and cuisine will delight visitors of all ages.
Celebrating community living, Piramal Realty has invited around 5,000 children from about 50 NGOs, high schools, and schools for the differently-abled, to participate by painting the lanterns. Children from over 30 municipal schools in Mumbai also painted lanterns for the Festival.
Some of the participating NGOs include: Access Life Assistance Foundation; CanKids KidsCan; Citi Academy for Special Education’s (CASE) Education Therapy Department; Dr. Susheela Gandhi Centre for Underprivileged Women; Jai Vakeel School for Children In Need of Special Care; and The Akanksha Foundation, among others.
Distinctively designed toy trains will run through the Festival celebrating the history of Byculla. Recreating the aura of the Aranya Festival in line with the lifestyle quotient of Piramal Realty, renowned international performers Mai Nakanishi and Ukon Takafuji will grace the event for calligraphy.
Visitors will also be able to soak up Japanese-inspired art, discover artifacts, and learn about the Edo period in Japan, through the sculptures, screens, and tapestry on display at the Art Museum.
Dr. Swati Piramal, Vice Chairperson, Piramal Enterprises said: “At Piramal Group we believe that art is an integral part of our culture. The Japanese Lantern Fiesta at The Aranya Festival celebrates art and cross cultural collaboration associated with Piramal Aranya, our flagship residential project.
