We want Thane to be part of this crusade that is being carried forward by a growing community of empowered women across India, who share a belief that a healthy family, a healthy nation and a healthy world begins with empowered women. The first step in empowerment is taking control of your own health, respecting yourself and understanding and celebrating the value you bring to your family and society. Empowerment is not a gift of society; it is a gift you give yourself. I urge the men & women of Thane to come forward and wholeheartedly support this campaign. We are confident the city and its people will support us and help make this run a success.”

At Dosti Realty we believe that health and fitness plays a very important role in ones daily routine and we encourage the same. Even across our projects, there are a number of activity areas besides the usual swimming pool and gymnasium; we also have squash courts, a rock climbing wall, tennis courts, badminton courts, table tennis areas, a jogging track, yoga/ meditation areas etc. We understand that in today’s day where it is sometimes difficult to make time to go out to get the necessary exercise.
