Celebrating the day, Essar illuminated ‘Essar House’ at Mumbai, it’s iconic headquarters opposite Mahalaxmi Racecourse, to Pink. The year 2022 also marks the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl.
In spirit of this year’s theme – ‘Our Time Is Now — Our Rights, Our Future’, the otherwise blue-coloured glass façade of Essar House was turned completely Pink. The 21-story high-rise that defines Mahalaxmi areas skyline, was a sight to behold, supporting the cause of girl child.
