Meanwhile, Diwali sweets made by Tanishka members in Kondhwa have generated demand from Canada. Sweets put up for sale on a no-loss no-profit basis by Tanishka members near NIBM were sent to Canada by local resident Manisha Aulkar. The sweets were liked so much by the recipients that a second batch of sweets had to be sent.
At the same time, Tanishka members have been assured of a fixed income throughout the year, following residents of housing colonies like Kumar Colony, Bramha Estate, Manish Park and Saroday Society have booked orders for sweets during different festivals throughout the year.
The initiative was launched with the help of local corporator Tanaji Lonkar, Popat Lonkar, the police patil and Rahul Lonkar. Led by group leader Pushpa Nikam, the initiative was successfully launched by members Sunita Patil, Sunita Mahajan, Vaishali Babar, Chhaty Gote, Suvarna Pawar, Vaishali Thopate, Shantabai Lipare, Lakshmi Lonkar, Kiran Mahamuni, Sneha Gujar, Nailni Lonkar, Mangala Lonkar, Snagita Lonkar and Savita Pille.
