Today, we have taken a small step towards it by creating awareness around the importance of this campaign.” says Mr. Aman Jhunjhunwala, CEO of Firegaze Event and Entertainment Pvt Ltd who are the organisers of Navraag 2016.
There are a number of unique facilities that will be provided to the visitors of Navraag 2016.
