“Malad Masti” is an initiative led by MLA Aslam Shaikh to promote his area Malad as a tourist attraction by turning the stretch of Malad Back road into a no vehicle zone for a family fun day with Sports, Games, Yoga, Music, Dance, Food, Fun & Frolic, Art & Crafts. Various musical teachers and performers like Garba, Drummers, and other practitioners of musical arts are provided free stage, power and exclusive area to promote the musical arts amongst younger people. By linking other social initiatives like his annual tree plantation drives with “Malad Masti” he has started to make a large section of the annual crowd interested in being part of these green activities and drives in their locality.
MLA Aslam Shaikh said, “I want to make Malad Masti, an annual street festival with total people participation in organising and running it along the lines of Oktoberfest in Germany or the Carnival in Rio and a platform to promote social causes dear to me. The campaign is all about getting the people to enjoy the area that belongs to them. We provide them with every possible safety and security, we have volunteers, police to take care of the participants.”
He also said “There are innumerable people who are malnourished which includes kids and women. We have also invited the NGO’s who look after the malnourished kids and women. The concept of Malad Masti is to celebrate the Indian culture where every Indian no matter what caste or religion they belong, they come together and have fun.”
