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. Aranya remains part of our larger vision to not only provide the best quality in homes but also to celebrate the Aranya Way of community inspired living that is synonymous with the values of Piramal Realty.”
