Godrej spreads the message of purity this kumbh season
Godrej Consumer Products limited (GCPL) through its various brand activation’s has created an experience that brought alive the Kumbh ritual of purity, making every Indian experience of India’s purest bath even more pure and enjoyable.
Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu pilgrimage, held in India every three years and attracting 100 million people. GCPL installed multiple refresh vans across the city at various junctures like bus stop entries and pilgrim shelters so that the devotees can feel the purity and essence of such a pious festival right from their arrival. These multiple experience zones have successively been able to touch each and every Indian across ghats and akhaadas, enabling the pilgrims to experience the glow of Godrej No 1 soaps and get rejuvenated for the holy dip.
Not just this!! GCPL ensured that the holy place where the Aarti took place was also pious and pure. How?? Simply by creating a number of fumigation rickshaws shaped like Good-knight Fast Card that moved around the mela and guaranteed that the place became mosquito free within minutes. Given the unexpected rains and the season of mosquitoes, a team of experts also performed particularly created Good-knight Fast Card aartis across Akhaada by lighting up special diya’s before beginning of a bhajan or aarti inside ahaadas to ensure that the place becomes mosquito free.
From the Akhada to the main ghat, GCPL sure made it a pure, pest free and a memorable experience for all the pilgrims. The brand has very consciously moved away from the traditional concept of a static stall and has created mobile experience zones. We are also sampling more than 20k Godrej No 1 soaps and 1.5 lac Fast cards to devotees, said Sunil Kataria, Head India and SAARC, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd (GCPL).
