Munj in Sky

Dhananjay Datar, a Marathi Millionaire based in Dubai, gave into his late father’s dream of conducting his grandson’s मुंज (Munj = Thread Ceremony) high in the sky… With 150 relatives, Datar Mandali conducted the ceremony in a chartered Jet Airways plane. In addition to the journalists, even representatives of Limca Book of Records were present to witness the high flying “record making” ceremony!

3M finds it hard to believe that even in these recessionary times, people have money to spend of such whims… Also this is the first time 3M has seen a Batu (the boy undergoing thread ceremony) wearing a turban… Punjabification of Indian ceremonies!
