Silent Garba Night at Viviana Mall will combat noise pollution by using headphones
Viviana Mall, a leading mall in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, has organized ‘Silent Garba’ within the premises on October 3 to celebrate Navratri.
Though it will be a silent celebration, there will be music that the revellers will dance to the tunes of. How? Headphones creating the right mood instead of loudspeakers blaring. Entry will be free for the participants.
Having adopted ‘silent’ celebration, Viviana Mall will have chosen an environmentally conscious path so that mall patron and retailers are not exposed to prolonged loud sound.
It is proven that prolonged exposure to loud music causes a loss in hearing ability apart from increasing a person’s blood pressure and other cardiovascular adverse effects. During festivals, noise pollution has always been among the leading sore points discussed and debated by environmentally conscious individuals.
Setting a trend, Viviana Mall will give headphones to each of the reveler. Each headphone comes with different tracks, and each track has a different colour. So if someone wants a group that is grooving to some Garba tunes, they have to tune in to the same track by identifying the colour, the track is assigned to.
With this, Viviana Mall has successfully blended technology with culture and festivities in a responsible manner. This will create a silent treat for spectators to watch people enjoy dancing without any loud music.
On the ‘silent’ celebration, Rima Kirtikar, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Viviana Mall said, "Viviana Mall as a community centre has always consciously celebrated festivities without losing the essence of the celebration. For last year’s Silent Garba Night event we received unexpected participation from the public which showed our customers want to celebrate festivals in a responsible way, which is by deleting loud music. We are delighted that we could come in and provide a solution for the noise-free celebration through 'Silent Garba'. This is our way of spreading happiness."
In order to make Navratri merrier, Viviana Mall will also host Electronic and Gold Fest from September 29, 2019 to October 8, 2019. During these days, there will be various discounts and offers available on gadgets, appliances and gold.
