A number of event management firms have come up in Nagpur over the years. While some have made their mark, some have just vanished with time. But in Nagpur, the business of event management is blooming as more number of events are now taking place as compared to past years. But do these events bring a cultural change in the city or offer something, which most of the Nagpurians really want? There’s something different, which needs to be done according to these three Nagpur women – Apeksha Munde, Deepshikha Thakur and Deepti Nangia – who have collectively started the event management firm – The Dream Catchers – with an intention to be innovative, give Nagpurians the exposure they deserve and bring about a change in the way business is done!

Nation Next tells you all about The Dream Catchers as it catches up with these three ladies!

Standing tall with men!

There’s no denying the fact that the event management field is highly dominated by men. Tell that to these women and Apeksha Munde is quick to reply, All three of us feel that in the end it is the product, which matters the most. If it’s attractive, it doesn’t matter whether there’s a man or a woman behind it. So, gender really doesn’t matter anymore. We are all so tech savvy these days and anything and everything can be done through cell phones. And hence, it has all become extremely convenient for women all over. We can sit at home and get all the work done!

Because designs matter

But what’s so different about The Dream CatchersAfter all, there are many event management firms in Nagpur. Deepshikha Thakur explains as she says, Dream Catchers is not a mainstream event management company. It is in fact, a ?designer? event management company! We don’t plan to just get things done for people blandly; we want to do them in the most creative ways possible! We didn’t conceptualise the idea of The Dream Catchers in a day. We observed a lot. Nagpur actually does not have an affordable place where people can go with their families, or on a Sunday afternoon, to chill and beat the stress of the week!

Event management with a difference 

Explaining further, Deepti Nangia says, We won’t manage corporate or political events like a regular event management firm does. We have a different focus and that is to give Nagpur what it lacks. Our events would be open for public and people can have a good time at the most affordable prices. We basically want to uplift Nagpur’s standards. We want to cater to different kinds of people every year. Like this year we are primarily focusing on organising events for families.


There’s an age old saying that one should not mix friendship and business. But these women certainly defy the saying! Speaking about the quotient they share with each other, Deepshikha says, You can call The Dream Catchers an extension of our friendship. It’s not that we are great friends and that’s why we decided to come up with this start-up. We all share a good professional base; have the same level of exposure, passion, confidence and most of all, the will to accomplish our work successfully. It is because of our determination that we three complement each other.

 All set for the big launch 

Interestingly, The Dream Catchers is all set to rock and roll with its first mega event in December 2016. Deepti says, Our launch event will have all day long live entertainment. It’s deliberately scheduled on a Sunday so that families can come together and enjoy. Nagpur always needed an event where one could dress up and have a gala time. We will also have a kids zone, a Santa house, and lots of other attractions and gift hampers. We will also have 15 multi cuisine food stalls. We intend to make it a perfect ?picnic-y? place! Surprisingly, demonetisation didn’t really deter them from conducting their event in December. Apeksha says, When demonetisation was announced, we amicably decided not to cancel our event since this event would actually be a perfect getaway and a stress buster for people. Enjoying at such an affordable price would keep them away from all their daily tensions at least for a few hours.

Kamptee resident Parseoni Police Station officer Jayant Vishnu Sherekar (42) was killed and seven others were hurt when a speeding car lost control and crashed into a crowd of people standing near an accident scene in Nagpur on Wednesday November 23 night near Naya Kund.

Police claim that a carelessly driven truck struck a car travelling in the opposite way. Vikram Singh Bais, the car’s driver, was stuck inside the crumpled car with blood gushing out from his body. To look after this incident, Sherekar and other Parseoni police officers sped over to the scene. A sizable crowd had formed at the scene of the collision, halting traffic.

According to the police, a second automobile entered the scene at a high rate of speed, slammed into bystanders who were standing on the road, and then sped off.

Seven other people, including officer Sherekar, suffered severe injuries. They claim that the policeman was confirmed dead by doctors after being taken to the hospital in a hurry.

The automobile that struck the officer and other bystanders was eventually impounded by the police, but the driver got away.

In a recent interview, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal spoke on BJP’s corruption allegations on AAP. He said, ‘BJP accuses us of corruption, they have not found one paisa. They have filed 167 cases against AAP leaders over the last 7 years, out of which not one has been proved in court.’

There were protests by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) employees due to delayed salaries. Following which, BJP accused AAP for not releasing funds. To which Kejriwal replied, ‘In the last 5 years, we have given ₹one lac cr to Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).. ask them (BJP) where it is now? kha gaye saara’ He added, ‘Give me CBI and ED for 24 hours, and more than half of the BJP party will be in jail’

Kejriwal further stated, ‘Modi ji gives free ki revdi, I do that too. While he does it for the rich, I do it for the public. He is waiving off huge loan defaulters behind closed doors. I do it openly for the benefit of the people. Providing schools and hospitals to the public is not free ki revdi, these acts are called as punya in Hinduism.’

If I make a film with Salman, there’s a risk. If it’s a hit, it’ll be his, if it’s a flop, daddy ki hai: Salim Khan




Elina Nayak | India

Salim Khan

Salim Khan is one legendary screenwriter of Indian cinema. And also a doting father of his five kids – Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Alvira and Arpita Khan. Be it supporting his kids, to making them realise the value of money and fame, he’s done all. He has also been an inspiration to many. 

Few years back, Salim Khan was asked in an interview why he never penned a script for his own son, Salman. The legendary screenwriter had a perfect answer, “When a person goes to anybody, they say, ‘I’ve an amazing script. You just hear it’. The other person might wonder, if you really have such an amazing script, why don’t you make it with your son. And if I make a film with Salman, there’s a risk. If it’s a hit, it will be his, and if it’s a flop, daddy ki hai.”

When asked about his retirement plans, he stressed on the fact that he doesn’t feel he can ever. Thanks to his five kids – Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Alvira and Arpita – they all turn up to him for everything. “They come to me for everything. If there’s no petrol in their vehicle, they come to me. What can I do about the petrol? If their vehicle isn’t working, they come to me. Koi income tax ka notice aaye toh daddy ke paas leke jao. Toh mujhe fursat hi nahi milti. There are times when I get a call at night 11 that ‘daddy, they want to meet you’. Hence, I’ve stopped writing,” revealed Salim Khan.

He admitted that he got stuck in his personal life duties so much, that he can’t dedicate time to writing. “I now feel I can’t give so much time to my writing. I won’t be able to write professionally. Earlier I would do it with dedication and focus, now I can’t, so I thought better I give up. And I’m in a happy space now,” he signed up.
