Aries Group’s Special Plans to Make Employees Happy

The general perception of big private companies among people is that they do not waste any opportunity to enslave their employees. But this observation is slowly changing around the world. Companies globally have started a new policy of giving maximum happiness to their employees along with their salaries. But here, the UAE-based Aries Group has started a new revolution by creating a ‘Happiness Division’ for its employees.
The Aries Group, a diversified multinational consortium with offices across 16 countries, has special plans for its employees that will last for a year. The group’s founding chairman and CEO, Dr. Sohan Roy’s daughter Nivedya Sohan Roy, a Naval architect, organizes and leads such an idea-based training program.
Nivedya, also a psychologist, started the ‘Happiness Project’ by launching an extensive counseling session. The first phase focused on identifying and resolving occupational problems that employees generally experience at work. Subsequently, new plans were formulated each month to ensure the physical and mental development of the staff and their family members. Small challenges, along with cash awards and other incentives, have also been included.
The challenges of the first month were based on healthcare. Special social media pages were started by the department to discover and promote the artistic talents of the employees. Prizes, including cash awards, were given to employees who completed work and career-related training on time. Through these challenges, Niya made every employee a part of this personality development drive and provided them an opportunity to participate in it according to their interests.
Aries Group is one of the few companies in the world that issued 50% of its shares to its employees. The company also provides special allowances and scholarships, and incentives for initiating startups, health management systems and implements social security programs.
Employees working in various private sectors are currently facing increasing psychological stress, as concerns over the global workforce recession have hit again with the second wave of COVID. The only solution to sail through these tough times is by keeping our happiness and optimism intact. Following this thought, even politicians today have begun to think about initiating a Happiness Ministry. There was such a ministry in the Madhya Pradesh cabinet and one in Andhra Pradesh as well.


A prominent front in Kerala announced through their election manifesto that a “Ministry of Happiness” would be formed in Kerala. Anyway, while governments and political parties are still pondering about it, Aries Group is happy to have started a division of its own to spread happiness in its Family.

Krishna Tirath, of the UPA government, had put forward a proposal of working husbands in 2012 to provide a portion of their salary to their spouses who are housewives.

Through this software, we were able to bag first place in the 5 marine-related commerce fields in a very short time. Recognition from various companies, including ARAMCO in Saudi Arabia, has also been received. This gain was attained through employees. For the very same reason, we are returning back their deserving share of the profit.”, says Sohan Roy.
Maritime Consultancy, Ship design, U.T gauging survey of ships, rope access, interior, aviation survey, etc., are the company’s main streams of activities.

Kerala-Based Aries Group & Allabout Innovations launches revolutionary foolproof protection for Cinema audiences

We live in a world where diseases caused by Bacteria and Viruses are found quite often. And COVID 19 is just one among many such viruses which has become a global health concern today. It has profoundly impacting human capital and businesses, including lives, learning, essential well-being, and future productivity. But the sectors which have incurred massive losses during these difficult times are cinema theatres.

The last few years have seen a digital shift of audience to OTT platforms. To ward off this competition and to woo the audience back to their properties, most Cinema owners had made significant all-round investments to enhance the cinema viewing experience.They included significant big-ticket investments in cinema interiors, screens, acoustics, projections, etc.

Cinema exhibition industry remains one of the few industries, yet to get a nod to function, and hence most cinema owners are under tremendous pressure. This is where Kerala-Based Aries Group has partnered with technology fostering firm, Allabout Innovations to launch cinema specific Corona protection system, that can protect us from all kinds of bacteria and viruses.

Dr. Sohan Roy, the Founder, and CEO of Aries Group of Companies, Aries Vismayas Max Studio, and Aries Plex, stated that this innovation will definitely prove to be a cost-effective solution for theatre owners to save their business. With this technology in place, we are sure to bring back the cinema industry right back on track, providing our viewers with a safe environment to enjoy cinema the way they used to.

AI has manufactured, made in India, WOLF brand Ozone generators, as well as Ion thrusters, which will sanitize thoroughly the areas where it operates. While the Ozone generators are meant for enclosures like studios and rooms, the AirMask ion thrusters come as a perfect solution for big cinema halls.

Speaking about the ion thrusters, which is named AirMask, Sujesh Sugunan, CEO of Kochi Based All About Innovations, said, “it can discharge up to 25 million negative ions per cm3, which will bind with the positive ions of COVID 19 and any other harmful viruses present in the air and neutralize it. Wolf Air Mask, when placed in a theatre, will ensure that the air inside the hall is neutralized by killing the harmful bacteria and viruses within fractions of a second. ,”

In India, there are only around 2,400 multiplex screens and approximately 6,700 single-screen theatres for 2,000 odd movies that release every year in our country. This year it was predicted that the Indian cinema industry will grow at a 6% CAGR between 2017 and 2020, reaching USD 1.9bn to USD 2.0 bn. But unfortunately, due to COVID, the theatres have suffered extreme losses, taking the cinema industry to an all-time low. Theatres have now been shut for more than 6 months, making the survival of the owners extremely difficult. Movie releases have been halted, and no proper plan is still in place to restart the functioning of cinema halls again. Shutting down theatres for an extended period will cause damage to the costly equipment installed, leading to further financial losses to the owners. Finding investments during such critical times has also become a cause of concern for many Single screen owners as well.

Aries Group shall take up the marketing of this revolutionary product in the cinema industry. Air Mask is specially designed to be placed inside a cinema hall, where a lot of aspects like consideration to lighting, acoustics, and noise have to be taken care of. 1000 nos of the equipment shall be launched in the first phase of its launch in the market. Allabout Innovations is a social design and innovation firm and consists of engineers, doctors, scientists, and social entrepreneurs.

Aries Group CEO Dr Sohan Roy Comes Forward In Support Of The UAE To Promote Gender Equality Resolution In The Marine Sector

UAE had come up with a request to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for making maritime fraternity a field where gender equity is maintained. This move is to ensure that women also get equal work opportunities as men in the industry. The IMO passed IMO resolution on “Preserving the legacy of the World Maritime theme for 2019 and Achieving a Barrier-Free Working Environment for Women in the Maritime Sector.”

The decision strives towards achieving the fifth goal of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030. UAE based Aries Group of Companies CEO, Dr. Sohan Roy, welcomed the resolution and assured his full support. He commented that the gender imbalance seen in the marine world today is mainly due to the lack of unawareness of women’s opportunities available in the field. He has always pitched in for treating women in his organization equally. “As far as I know, the industry is willing to absorb females, but very few come forward to accept it. If a certain percentage of slots are optionally reserved for females, it will definitely create awareness about the opportunities. Personally speaking, we provide equal status to all female employees in our organization. I have twin daughters, and both are Naval Architects.

They never faced any kind of difficulty in getting absorbed by the Maritime Industry. In fact, the one working in the UK and was the first to get selected through campus interview.” mentioned Dr. Roy. He also added that it is the outlook of the people towards the maritime sector that really needs a change.

Well known music director, Jubair Muhammad is handling the movie’s music section.

“Mmmmm…” is a movie which stresses on various environmental concepts. Producers reported that Edon decided to be a part of the film after listening to the theme and message the cinema had to offer. Initially, the first few schedules were planned to be shot at international locations. Unfortunately, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, all decided scenes will now be shot in India.

Recipient of numerous accreditations including Guinness World Record in the film field, Vijeesh Mani is directing the movie. The name of the movie was first published on March 10th at Aries Vismayas Max Studio.

Director has announced that artists from Hollywood will be a part of this movie, as it will be released on an international scale. He also mentioned his excitement to be working alongside Sohan Roy, who gifted the world with a foreign movie like DAM 999. Vijeesh has received various acknowledgments like Guinness record for the filming of the tribal language, Guinness record for finishing script in record time, and releasing it in theatres. He has also been bestowed with this year’s Indian Panorama, and many other national awards.

 

This movie’s producer Dr. Sohan Roy is the Director of the Hollywood movie DAM 999, who has also worked as an inevitable part of numerous other films as a producer, project designer, and actor.

Even After Ostracizing For 9 years 999 Is Crossing 9 Cherishing Memories

A movie that made us foresee the crumbling of the Mullaperiyar dam predicted to fall in July 2020 by Nostradamus. Even the supreme Indian Parliament standing still in the name of a movie. Two states closed their borders and involving in a fight between each other. Thousands of volunteering protesters flowing into Mullaperiyar daily. Tamil Nadu Government is continuing the ban even after the Supreme court granted permission for the release. They also denied putting up of posters through movie organizations and asking whichever theatre that came forward to show the movie to pay the entire revenue as fine. They banned satellite rights of the film, which almost got to the final step of gaining the most prestigious Oscar and assigning hundreds of Cyber soldiers to tamper with the IMDB rating. Even the history of world cinema hasn’t witnessed such atrocious activities to sabotage a movie. The ban, which gets renewed every six months, got renewed last March 20 again.

This corona era’s holidays are offering a rebirth to the many movies that got sunk in our soul’s Dam. Released 9 years ago, a Hollywood movie, that created a wave of amusement, is brimming up our search engines again as it gears to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

9 main characters, 9 locations, 9 emotions, 9 songs. 9 diverse faces of lost love, National Award winners from 9 different film industries, story developing aligning with the positioning of 9 planets, filming of Ayurveda treatment methods in 9 ways of treatment, above all, a plot that cherished 9 tracts. These 9 are the virtues that made this movie outstanding.

Directed by Dr. Sohan Roy and released in 2011, DAM 999 has novelties numerous enough to fill a dam. Apart from gaining a reputed position among the Oscar-shortlisted movies, the movie’s script, also written by Sohan Roy, was placed in the Oscar Academy Library’s (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) permanent core collection.

In 2011, this movie’s release unleashed a “water bomb” of controversies. It was also an era when the news about central Kerala, which lies in the lap of Mullaperiyar dam, gave sleepless nights to the Malayalee community all around the world. When human lovers, who got a clear picture of the Dam’s hazardous security issues through the visualization of this movie, they resolved to go for a stringent rebellion. But, Tamil Nadu banned the movie’s release.

History is what enlightened the movie’s director on the fact that dams which give people with the boons of water and light, also has the power to put off their life’s light forever. In 1975, 2,50,000 people were mass murdered by Banqiao Dam in China. Wikipedia refers to it as the tallest among the 6 oldest dams across the globe and that it is 7 times taller than Banqiao Dam. These facts vividly explain the intensity of horror that was collecting in the Mullaperiyar dam along with water.

Just like emotions and consciousness make a man think, it urged Sohan Roy to sit and ponder. Afterward, he filmed the documentary named “Dams: The Lethal Water Bombs” and shared his concerns with society. The short film secured three awards from Los Angeles Movie Festival and Movie awards the very next year itself and continued to acquire about 23 international awards in the coming years.

When a twenty-one-minute movie was subject to acknowledgment, he realized the seamless opportunities a commercial film made on the same concept could receive. It urged him to make a movie on a larger canvas. In contrast to “Titanic” movie’s concept of coincidental disaster, a film which pictures human-made disaster can fulfil the actual goal of the art of movie-making- bringing awareness. With this thought in mind, he started conceptualizing it in him. The director spent the entire savings made through 16 years long hard work for this ten million budget debut film, without fathoming that he is stepping into a great disaster.

    

By the time “DAM 999” was ready for release, it had already received so many accolades. The movie has cast 16 national award winners, and became the first Indian movie to implement 2D to 3D “conversion technology.” The film was also simultaneously released in 5 world languages. It was shot aboard the largest ship in the world’s history, making it the first Indian film that had incorporated the water graphics technology. DAM999 was the first Indian movie produced in the Hollywood format. It was distributed by the world-famous production and distribution company “Warner Bros.” Banned in the state, even before its release, it became super hit, thanks to the controversies of actor created due to actor Thilakan and Mullaperiyar, etc. These exciting facts made the movie stand out, which comes to a total of nine specialties, including controversies and novelties during release time.

The film was also a “super-hit” in terms of the number of awards it had received. It was also shortlisted for Oscar and received five entries in three categories. Besides this, the movie got selected to compete in twelve categories for the very next year’s Golden Rooster Awards. Dam 999 is also the first Indian movie that to have obtained entry to this award, which is also popularly known as the “Chinese Oscar.”

In the year of 2013, the cinema received “Best Director” and “Best feature film” awards at the Cinerockholm International Film Festival; Three awards including “Special Jury Award,” “Best Movie of Festival” and “Best International Feature Film” from International Film Festival for Environment Health and Cultural Festival; “Best English Film Award” in Sangli film Festival, and more. The movie was also honored with the “Judge’s Favourite Award” at the “Antigua & Barbuda Film Festival” while the organizers honored Director Sohan Roy with a special award.

The movie got selected in about 130 film festivals including the internationally acclaimed Tehran Film Festival, Jaipur International Film Festival, Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival, America’s Chain NYC Festival, Louisville International Film Festival, Laughlin International Film Festival, Trinity International Film Festival, and Italy’s Salento International Film Festival. Alongside this, the film had also achieved California’s Global Music Award.

“Biz TV Network” based in UAE is the producer of “DAM 999”. Many National Award winners from different states have associated with the film’s crew. Ajay Vincent and music by Ouseppachan did the cinematography. Vinay Rai, Ashish Vidyarthi, Rajit Kapur, Vimala Raman, Linda Arsenio, Joshua Frederick. The film introduced the latest technologies in sound recording and camera, which Indian cinema had never experienced before.

If there is a record for creating novelty lining a range of innovations, that award will also go to DAM 999. The film had created nine dimensions of aesthetic appreciation to gratify the aesthetic demands of nine different categories of film viewers.

The film imparts scientific facts about a disaster that dams can cause for those who have built up dams of anxiety in their minds, which includes concerns about Mullaperiyar. To music lovers, this movie is a musical entertainer, and it takes the family audience to a state of emotional “sethubandhanam.” For those who believe in India’s indigenous healing practices, they experienced it that way. At the same time, the lovers of astrology will take it as an astrological movie. Apart from that, it will be experienced by those who believe in India’s cultural diversities, as a movie that imparts the cultural traditions to the new generation. The panoramic beauty of various landscapes will enchant travellers because the film depicts multiple sea voyages and navigational characters. The ninth feature of the movie is the romantic experience it gives to both lovers as well as disappointed lovers. It will not be a wonder even if they experience it as a sole dedication to them as the fictional works through the nine emotions of love and despair.

These many reasons are enough to curb an average person’s curiosity about why there are so many “nines” in the title of DAM 999. Doesn’t it feel like the director has synchronized nine features in production, release, and appreciation into the title? But this is not the secret behind the “nines”… That is the twist!

Vishakham Thirunal Ramavarma, the ruler of the erstwhile Travancore princely state, had signed an agreement with the British for 999 years, known as “Periyar Paattakkarar” ( Periyar Lease Agreement). The British people were authorized to construct the Mullaperiyar Dam and to distribute the water of Periyar to Tamil Nadu via the Vaigai river for 999 years. This agreement came into force on 1886 October 29. The Achyuthamenon Government had renewed the agreement post-independence.

Nobody has any grievances in supplying water to Tamil Nadu. But isn’t it atrocious to argue that Kerala has no right to rebuild the Dam for 999 years? Will a Dam which starts to give away after about a hundred years stay secure for 999 years?

Was that 999 suffixed to “DAM” because the “999” is a more significant water bomb than the Dam itself?

Only the movie’s everything, its director, ostracized before years and who still wanders around without getting moksha knows it!

COVID-19 has sparked unrest in almost every business in the world, and the education sector is no different.

Students, too, have been forced to take up e-learning, which opens new doors to technology’s involvement in the education sector. Even though it has been a scientifically proven fact that having a hearing and visual exposure to curricular concepts and subjects improved a student’s grasping power in contradiction to the conventional textbook learning method.

Backed by the scientifically proven methodology, Aries Group has come to the forefront to make learning fun for students through its latest offering –

The Malayali Community Embraces Poem COVID-19 Wholeheartedly

People were used to complaining about a short time even though they had a long to-do-list, now have enough and more of time in their hands due to the COVID virus. Currently, our social media platforms have turned into an art festival stage as talents in quarantine have geared up to develop their artistic skills choosing COVID as a topic. Among the other such poems which released during this lockdown, Hollywood Director and poet Dr. Sohan Roy’s poem “COVID-19” stands out for its unique style of contents, music, and recitation. COVID-19, which was also written and recited by Sohan Roy, is gaining much recognition like wildfire. In just a few days from its release, the poem, with its English sub-titles and graphics, reached one million views on various social media. The poet’s imagination relates this COVID period to the “great world war.” Alongside, in contrast to the other COVID poems released on social media this season, Sohan Roy’s poem was a collective reflection of positive as well as negative experiences this great pandemic COVID has bestowed upon us. Through this poem, we can grasp how this universe, which is comprehensive of everything from grass blades to the stars, reacted in whispered tones to the silence when the uproars of the human race in dictatorial tone stood still at least for a moment.

Poet believes that the realization that even the atom, which is the minutest element in the universe, has the power to terrorize the world countries, including the significant superpowers, will help humans to eliminate the arrogance that earth revolves on their fingertips. This new version of the virus even came into existence by crumbling the iron fort of dictatorship, The Great Wall of China. Through this poem, we can see the picture of the “superpowers” with the ability to resist even the disaster sowing atom bombs, standing and staring helplessly at this virus crossing bounds and killing their own citizens.

The lines depict philosophy topped with a tinge of humor, which is the method in which the virus has cleansed our society. COVID-19 virus has now leashed harmful elements like air pollution, drug mafia, begging mafia, robber gangs to ventilators. When human influence shrinks to their burrows, who other than the virus will draw the picture of freely roaming beasts coming out of holes unafraid of humans? Ones who raced the share market bull to heights playing the guessing business, have toppled and now lie in the ditches. Here, we can also see ones who used to heal ailments of thousands and the human Gods who had claimed holiness choose self-isolation in fear of COVID virus, while their attendees stand watching them awestruck. Poet sees the exact description of God in health workers who retrieve as many as lives possible from the death Goddess. The poem also puts forward a plea asking not to include “virus tactics” in the new economic war artilleries and eradicate the human race. In different scenarios, a virus had to come forward and make men think beyond cast and creed and teach humans the meaninglessness in meaningfulness. This has brought about insights beyond measure to the readers. In the end, the poet reminds us that it was this pandemic that gave people a chance to soothingly blend into the coziness of their family at last, other than being jailed by the many busy work schedules of life. The poem ends on a sensible and philosophical question of whether COVID has to be judged as the God or the devil when we analyze the various practical lessons COVID nurtured humankind with. Like this, alongside viewing this pandemic from every possible viewpoint through the lyrics, the crew was also successful in using most suitable graphical representations to flawlessly decipher the poem’s essence to readers. And that must be the reason why this poem gained much more public acceptance than the other verses, which got released on social media around the same time regarding this topic.

Sohan Roy is also the author of numerous other poems that have successfully created a buzz on social media platforms. The poem “Asifa’s Heaven,” he authored, soaked the whole of Kerala’s poem appreciators in tears. The eight-year-old tender girl who passed away after being gruesomely raped by a gang of barbarians was the poem’s concept. Similarly, lyrics on various topics like India’s heroic son “Abhinandan,” tribal lad Madhu who was stamped a thief for merely stealing to curb his hunger, etc. were widely viewed and discussed by lakhs of people on social media. After penning down short impromptu poems based on current events and posting them on social media, he incorporated elements of epic poetry. He published the book “Anumahavakavyam,” which was released at the Soorya festival last year by famed lyricist and poet Sreekumaran Thampi. The composition and background music of the poem “COVID-19” was done by the famous and eminent music director, B.R Bijuram.

The one who got cornered due to the poem controversy is an impeccably decent and richly talented man the business world has ever witnessed

It is being doubted that behind the controversy related to the Indian entrepreneur Mr. Sohan Roy’s short poem in Malayalam that shook UAE in the past few days, are a few Malayalis with twisted interests. No person or organization that has rightly comprehended Roy’s character, will be able to testify these grave allegations raised upon him. He is also a Hollywood Director, who has been efficiently running worldwide business based in the UAE for the past 22 years striving towards the success of his business along with the growth of the UAE and the Indian economy. He is someone who made a bond for setting aside 50% of his assets for his employees and implemented accurate payment, yearly increment, pension, and monthly profit share for them. He is continuing to provide full payment without laying off anyone even in this crucial period of COVID-19. Even after being the CEO of a business conglomerate of 53 companies spread around 16 countries and getting his name entered in the Forbes list, Sohan Roy is someone who has always avoided accompanying privileges, setting an example for entrepreneur’s as a model employer. He believes right from the CEO to the office boy, work rules at the office are equal for everyone hence every employee must follow them without disparity.

He is the only Businessman in the world who gives away money saved from traveling for business trips in economy class and by avoiding unnecessary extravagance, as pension to the Parents of Employees. Alongside, he also succeeded in helping poor and studious children in pursuing a quality education and reaching heights.

In UAE alone, he was able to open job opportunities for approximately thousand people and provided the best pay in respected job criteria along with job security. Along with this, he was also able to make five of his business ventures gain the top most position in their respective fields on the basis of an increase in efficiency.

With an aim to make the value of 1$=1Rupee, a successful research project which Roy conducted as a part of his Industrial Doctorate, he kick-started a community of Indian entrepreneurs called Indywood Billionaires Club and a U.S.D 10 Billion worth project Indywood, both of which are still functioning efficiently.

By giving away his own house for COVID treatment and by being the first to deliver necessary ventilators, his charity services stood out. 100s of needy families were also relocated and houses were constructed for those who got affected by natural calamities in Nepal, Chennai, and Kerala.

In 2016, he was acknowledged with the award for the best employer in India for demonstrating his commitment towards human values in his companies.

His first directorial venture “DAM 999” for Warner Brothers, contended for the Oscars and received 5 selections in 3 categories, making him the first director to enter Hollywood from the Middle East and UAE. Recognizing his directorial skills, he was presented with around 50 international awards.

He is also the author of 6 literature works including a script and novel which gained a place in Oscar library and “Anu Mahakaavyam” which comes under epic poem category. Choosing current affairs as a topic, he has been writing and releasing haikus on a daily basis for the past two and half years in a 4 line Poem based Internet Troll or “Poetroll” form along with suiting graphics and music. He has written a total of 875 Poetrolls that stands out in the postmodern literary Field.

He has also founded many mega youth festivals and talent hunts in the UAE which eventually helped many talented individuals to become a part of the movie world. He is also the only representative from the UAE in the “Emmy Award” committee, which is considered as the Oscar of the television arena.

Sohan Roy is a true patriot who wholeheartedly accepts the leadership of Modi even though he has been a left ideologist since school days and Proved to implement that ideology in own life.

He is a down to earth person who can be named as a true secularist, who does not exhibit any kind of religious inclination, which is clearly evident even in his name.  This is a period when the world has joined hands to work unanimously against the pandemic, and when he came to know that several religious preachers are trying to congregate their respective followers in various regions , he wrote a poem on the issue without pinpointing any particular religion. The graphic designer who was working from India failed to get the true essence of the poem and unintentionally related it to the Nizamuddin issue which was going on at that point in time using the corresponding graphics and uploaded it on social media handles from India. Due to lack of time, the control of his social media accounts has been entitled to the media team operating in India itself. Since the graphical representation was a result of misinterpretation, Roy immediately took action and removed the post from all social media handles. Later, he also apologized, taking the entire moral responsibility of the issue through his Facebook post.

 

We truly hope that the controversy which has resurfaced again after two weeks of deleting the post in Malayalam exclusively meant of Malayalees,  with a clear intention of crucifying and defaming a selfless person on social media, without comprehending the actual fact of nothing wrong with lines, but with graphics, does not create a forever black mark on Malayalees and Indians in general.

COVID-19 Outbreak: With EFFISM Monitoring Work From Home Turns Out To Be A Cakewalk

Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, many workplaces are forced to shut down as a precautionary measure. In this situation, employees are assigned to work from home and this decision would take a toll on the overall productivity of a company unless an efficient monitoring system is administered. Here is where the work monitoring and analysing software EFFISM (Efficiency Improvement System Management) comes into the picture. Putting EFFISM to use, monitoring different stratums of a company from the top-notch employees to the ones in grass root level becomes an easy and systematic affair.

Kerala Entrepreneur Ready To Conquer The Indian Fashion World

Chennai: The grand event of Indywood Fashion Premiere League Season 3 concluded successfully at Taj Connemara in Chennai on Feb 14 th 2020. The event was organised along with the official launch of Indywood Billionaires Club – Chennai chapter where top enterprising business icons from the state of Tamil Nadu were honored. Recognizing the relevance of age old tradition of weaving and the major role it has played in shaping the fashion world since ages, IFPL season 3 was themed “A walk for a Cause” which unveiled a greater cause of promoting the Indian weaver’s community.

IFPL season 3 showcased handpicked designs by Mrs. Abhini Sohan, Executive Director – IFPL, who is known for her impeccable design sense. Travelling around the world and imbibing fashion from varied cultures and nations, her choice of clothes showcased in the event was subject to great appreciation. As a designer, Abhini Sohan’s passion in designing started budding at a very tender age. Her inspiration was her mother and cousin who is a renowned fashion designer in South India. Her initially designed pieces mostly included an exquisite collection of sarees. Her keenness in travelling with hardcore passion for fashion made her travel the world, watch, live and feel varied cultures. Handpicking of IFPL designer wears were also done through a similar process of travelling each place all by herself and choosing one from a wide range of collections. Particular attention was given to choosing designs closely knitted to the cultural aesthetics of that particular place. Her immaculate design sense coupled with the elegance of models brought the appearance of the costumes to a whole new level. While Abhini personally sees to the selection of dresses, her team of professionals is responsible to conduct the show in a top-notch manner. “According to me, fashion is something that must blend in and align with an individual’s body and shouldn’t look like an extra fitting. And, while wearing an outfit, it should have the power to enhance the appearance of the person and vice-versa”, she quoted.

Travelling to different villages and experiencing the struggle weaver communities are going through, Abhini decided to choose the theme to uphold the relevance of weaving in Indian culture. She believes that, if this generation of weavers aren’t taken care of, the next generation will be reluctant to step into that line of skill and it will eventually lead to the end of the weaving community.

      

The show was choreographed by ace fashion choreographer Mr. Dalu Krishandas, who has brought prominent changes to the South Indian fashion industry. Miss Super Globe World 2019, Akshara Reddy and Indian model and actress Vidya Pradeep, walked the ramp as celebrity Show stoppers. This year, IFPL will be organised at 5 different locations including Delhi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad focusing on the different film hubs of Indian film industry. IFPL aims to choose film industry as a medium to propagate the word of Indian fashion industry around the world. Watching Indywood, a media and film based company founded by Abhini’s husband, Mr. Sohan Roy, she realized movies’ potential to enhance a wide range of fields like music, fashion, technology etc., and thus the initial concept of IFPL struck Abhini.

Indian film industry is renowned worldwide and she believed that with its back support, Indian fashion industry could conquer heights.

As each year passes, the impact and reach of IFPL is getting better at a dramatic pace. In the upcoming years, IFPL is planning to add in more designers, models and choreographers. Since this year’s theme was focused on the method of cloth making, IFPL chose to bring up the weaver community. Next, IFPL will be focusing on materials, which will be khadi for the upcoming year.

Peter Patel honored with Independent Bakery Retailer Award in the Asian Trader Awards 2019

Costcutter Brockley, situated in High St in UK, owner  Peter Patel honored with Independent Bakery Retailer Award in the Asian Trader Awards 2019.

Peter Patel says about the single most profitable innovation he have made to his store over the past 12 months. “Introducing a dedicated chiller for vegan products has meant we’ve been able to significantly increase the range and reap the rewards, with weekly sales now at £2,000”.

He describes about his best strategy for increasing footfall in his store.

“Really getting under the skin of what existing shoppers want and crucially who else could be shopping with us. Once we have that, finding a point of difference and answering their needs”.

He also describes two key challenges facing convenience and explain your plans for taking advantage.

“1. Point of difference With two Sainsbury’s, a Co-op and independently owned convenience stores all within walking distance, we have had to work hard to create a point of difference. Using our shopper insights we have created an offering that is tailored to meet our shoppers’ needs, including the most comprehensive BWS and vegan offerings in the area. Not only do our sales prove that we’ve created a point of difference, but the fact that our nearest competitor, Sainsbury’s, is now directing customers to our vegan range, is the icing on the cake. 2. Shopping environment All the research showed that our local shoppers wanted smaller batched produced products, whether that was BWS or vegan products. They’re also keen to top-up shop regularly and want healthy, easy dinners with fresh ingredients and that’s exactly what we’ve delivered. We’ve also tried to look after our younger visitors and have introduced small shopping trolleys for children, which have been a big hit. The results speak for themselves. Basket spend has grown from £5.30 to £6.66 and sales have grown from £26,000 to £35,000”

He lists three ways in which he have responded and retained footfall after a new discounter/supermarket opened in his catchment area.

“1. Point of difference to create distinction. We’ve created a real point of difference with our vegan offering. Our competitors have now reduced their vegan range as they simply couldn’t compete with the depth and breadth of our offering. We have also introduced a specialist range of grocery items to fulfil demand from customers seeking a premium range of goods. 2. The extension of our BWS offering means that we now have one of the most comprehensive ranges in the area, ensuring we always have a great range of possibilities to pair with our ‘meal for tonight’ options. 3. In a direct response to customer feedback and to reduce environmental impact, we have introduced loose fruit and vegetables, so shoppers can buy the exact quantity they need”
