Taneira Saree Run, Bangalore, 2023
Flagging off and leading the march was one of the foremost voices in the world of technology, a technology humanist, and an inspiration for young women, Sindhu Gangadharan, SVP & MD, SAP Labs India; Head, SAP User Enablement; Board of Directors at Titan Company and Siemens India.
The Taneira Saree Run stands as a resolute ode to the exceptional versatility of the saree and the women who wear it.
Beyond a fashion statement, a saree mirrors the multi-dimensional identity, reflecting every facet of a woman’s life. It offers comfort while navigating the demands of modern day living all the while maintaining a link to time-honored traditions through its graceful folds. It encapsulates adaptability, strength, and an unyielding spirit-becoming a vital part of a woman’s daily narrative.
Building on the success of the Saree Run in Kolkata and Pune, which saw 4300 and 5600 women respectively, this event transforms the saree from a mere fabric into a superhero cape-a catalyst rather than a hindrance. It’s a powerful affirmation that women from all walks of life can confidently don a saree, embracing their unique styles while shedding inhibitions and venturing forth boldly.
Speaking at the event, Mr. CK Venkataraman, Managing Director, Titan Company Limited, said, ”The Taneira Saree Run embodies the enduring spirit of Titan, where innovation and tradition converge. Just as our timepieces have become a fundamental part of people’s lives, the Saree Run harmoniously weaves together the threads of empowerment, diversity, and the timeless beauty of the saree. It reflects our commitment to celebrate the essence of womanhood, resonating with our broader vision of shaping narratives that transcend boundaries. This incredible event not only inspires individuals across the spectrum but also emphasizes the significance of women’s health, seamlessly integrating empowerment with well-being.”
Mr. Ambuj Narayan, CEO, Taneira, added, “Our collaboration with the Saree Run transcends mere participation; it signifies the amplification of the saree as a symbol of liberation. As the Saree Run transforms into a jubilant celebration of womanhood, fostering connections and embracing diversity, our partnership with JJ Active emphasizes our unwavering faith in the saree as a blank canvas—a canvas which infers limitless possibilities, upon which women can inscribe their narratives of resilience, individuality, and triumph.”
Coach Pramod, JJ Active, said, “The Taneira Saree Run isn’t just an event; it’s a celebration of the indomitable spirit of women. It represents the empowerment to flourish, the inclusion of diverse voices, a stride in the journey towards wellness, and the sheer delight derived from shattering conventional norms.”
The Bangalore chapter of the Taneira Saree Run emerges as a magnanimous feat, a magnificent homage to the power of womanhood. It transcends the concept of mere running- embodying confidence, camaraderie, and a defiance of stereotypes. An open invitation to leave your reservations and responsibilities behind and immerse in a morning full of energy, exuberance, esprit de corps – one that celebrates the iconic six-yard wonder and women who wear them in all its glory.
