The event was started with lamp lighting, followed by honoring the guests with Shawl, Bouquets, and special momentos. A huge cake, which caught the attention of everyone since it presented on the stage finally met with the special person for which it was brought i.e. Mr. Sanjay Ghodawat. He cut the cake and the celebrations & event finally started.

Then came the most interesting part of the event where SGG’s MD took charge of the program himself and hosted the event thereon.

He revealed many interesting things about the SGG’s key four businesses which include Aviation, FMCG, Education, and Renewable Energy, and emphasized the importance of these verticals for the future growth of Sanjay Ghodawat Group.
