A Tree Named Ganga, a book by chef Vikas Khanna, was unveiled at Fiesta Fantasia, the kids’ carnival organised by Pune’s Elpro International School at Elpro City Square Mall.

The two-day carnival, which had over 50 stalls with games and other activities, was an initiative to bridge the gap between the teachers, students and parents of the school.

It witnessed a huge turnover of visitors along with over 100 kids from Shiksha Seva Foundation. Besides the carnival, thousands of people availed of the flat 50 per cent sale offered by Elpro City Square Mall to commemorate the Republic Day weekend.

A Tree Named Ganga
Khanna is the only chef in the world to come out with a book aimed at kids. It revolves around a seed that grows into a majestic tree with everyone's love and support, until the day it loses all its friends due to its arrogance.

Speaking about the book, he added, “A Tree Named Ganga is a story of life, friendship and humility that will inspire children and parents alike. I wrote this book on the ghats of Ganga in Varanasi, watching the majestic trees on the banks, spreading life.”

This book is for the three men who reincarnated my spirit -Uday S Ahlawat, Robert Cohen and Zachary Taylor. I would like to thank Elpro City Square Mall and Elpro International School for giving me an opportunity to launch this book amongst kids at Fiesta Fantasia. I hope kids will love the book and will get inspired,” Khanna said.

Talking about the grand success of Fiesta Fantasia Deepak Kumar, chairman and managing director, Elpro International Ltd, said, “It was great hosting Fiesta Fantasia at Elpro City Square Mall.”

“It was wonderful to see young students in such high energy and enthusiasm. We are overwhelmed to see the humongous response. And chef Khanna was indeed the star of this event. His presence itself added a charm around. We wish him immense luck for his new book,” he added.

Dr Amrita Vohra, director principal, Elpro International School, said, “Fiesta Fantasia is the most extravagant event of the year for EIS. The concept of Annual Carnival was first introduced in the year 2013 to bring the students, parents, teachers and the staff together on one platform.”

“Since then it has been the most cherished occasion for the entire school community. The Annual Carnival of 2020 witnessed a great footfall, with everyone immersed in the happy-go-lucky carnivalesque spirit, making the event a huge success,” she added.

“It was also a much-needed breather for the students with the exam season drawing nearer. The celebration took the edge off the exam pressure, allowing students to get involved in a whole lot of merry-making business,” Dr Vohra said.
