    Indian made hot air balloons is once again ready to compete with the dangerous Chinese made balloons banned by the governemnt. Two friends in Vadodara introduce the idea to work on Make In India concept and help people to celebrate the festival with great enthusiasm.

    After the government put a ban on Chinese made balloons the kite enthusiasts turn their attention towards the Indian product for the complete safety. During the day the kite enthusiasts are all set for the terrace party and at the night the balloons released in the night add the attraction to the festival. However the banned Chinese balloons are still flourished in the market and proves a danger to the people.

    To help enthusiasts celebrate the festival with care, Two friends Juzar Motorwala and Hussain came up with the idea and work on the concept of Be Indian Buy Indian. They design the balloons purely Indian way with the local made wax used inside. They said the wax is purely safe and there is no risk of fire when the balloons land.

    “Chinese made balloons are risky as the wax used in there is chemical based and there is a risk of fire when it lands. However the wax inside the balloons we make are totally safe as it get destroyed in the air and the balloon is totally safe on landing,” said Motorwala.

    Every year they manufacture the balloons and sell inside the famous Patang Bazaar. They also distribute the items to others and also take orders online. What is more impressive is whatever earning comes during this time goes to charity.

    He further said the demand for their balloons are increasing every year as they prepared 50,000 balloons this year comparing to 30,000 last year. They also sell balloons online and getting good response.

    This year they gives Gubbara Junction a name to their balloons and intend to make it a brand. They are hopeful that the brand will rule the sky this Uttarayan.

    “Me and my friend are working on good posts in private companies and financially sound. With an aim to give something back to the society we donate the total earning in charity,” said Motorwala.
