It is not very often that you go to a restaurant, order and meal along with a bottle of water and it turns into a good cause but Nara in Mumbai is making it possible. With the celebration of Songkran, New Year in Thailand, where water is of significance, Nara brings water to the Raigad district of Maharashtra and here’s how.
New Year is celebrated in a unique way in Thai culture and water is of importance as it is regarded as a purifier of bad luck and grievances. On Songkran, water is allowed to trickle down the Buddha statues, collected by the masses and then trickled onto the shoulders of the elders. The modern version sees a kingdom-wide water fight in the month of April which is the hottest month in Thailand.
Nara’s Support To Raigad
Keeping the significance of water, Nara has initiated the noble cause of providing water to the Raigad district of Maharashtra on the occasion of Songkran. They’ve tied up with the Swades Foundation and together this team will be creating rain-water harvesting measures and water storage facilities. Plus, the will also be distributing 200 liters of potable water every day of the year.
Nara makes a sumptuous delicacy – Khao Phad Samunprai which is a Butterfly Pea Fried Rice made using flavourful Thai herbs and ingredients. You simply need to order this dish along with a bottle of water anytime during the month of April and the proceeds from your order will go to the Swades Foundation. So celebrate the true spirit of Songkran this summer and extend your help to a Raigad by simply ordering a delicious dish in Mumbai.
While in Nara, you can also binge on their sumptuous delicacies like Kang Pa Nang Gai, Burmese-style Khao Soy Gai, Phu Phad Pong Ka Ree and lots more!
