This year, Diwali celebrations and festivities at Select CITYWALK take on a whole new meaning as they capture the true essence of festivity and happiness. Keeping in mind the fervour of Diwali, Delhi’s most admired shopping centre kick-starts the season of light and joy with an exemplary display of festive décor that will delight as well as activities that will enthral the soul.
As we enter this festive season with a newfound understanding of what it means to seek and spread joy and happiness around us, Select CITYWALK through its festive decor urges its patrons to look around with a sense of hope for a better tomorrow, transformation for a kinder us & wisdom for all. The décor consists of Mandalas surrounding the entire shopping centre, representing the mysteries, secrets new beginnings and beauty all around. The purpose of the Mandala is to help transform ordinary minds into enlightened ones and to assist with healing. Traditionally, a mandala is a geometric design or pattern that represents the cosmos or deities in various heavenly worlds. The décor has been inspired from the vibrant colours of this art, decked with diyas and lights to make it a Diwali full of hope, faith and dreams.
Continuing with the theme of universal enlightenment, healing and moving away from darkness towards light, Select CITYWALK has joined hands with The Earth Saviours’ Foundation, SPID and FRIENDICOES SECA to host the Festival of Smiles starting 15th October to 31st October. The festival is geared to help those who are less privileged, bringing smiles to the wrinkled lines of ageing faces, bringing laughter to the lives of the children of the sex workers and bringing love and warmth to voiceless animals. Select CITYWALK urges its patrons to bring joy in the hearts of the less privileged and head to these NGO’s at the shopping centre and donate.

Speaking on the month long festivities, Mr Yogeshwar Sharma Executive Director and CEO, Select Infrastructure says, “We at Select CITYWALK have always been at the forefront of bringing festive joy to the lives of our patrons. This year we specially chose Mandala as our festive theme as it represents hope and positivity, something that we all truly need to surround ourselves with as we come out of the storm of the past year and a half. While our festive décor is a delight for the eyes, we also want to continue the chain of giving back to society by giving them platforms to bring smiles to the underprivileged. This Diwali we want the radiance of healing and joy to be all around us.”
