Commenting on the event, Sohel I S, CEO, HDFC RED said, “One’s love for their NEIGHBOURHOOD is almost as deeply-entrenched as that for their home. Every person who lives and grows up in a locality has a different perspective and shares something special with their vicinity, something that can be captured only with the lens of their mind. With the creative campaign #LanesByLens, we want to celebrate the various facets of the lanes of Mumbai through the eyes of the people who call this city their ‘home’.”
Elaborating on the concept of this campaign, Rohan Gandhi, Social Media Head, HDFC RED, said, “Unlike other regular street photowalks, we decided to capture the lesser known, yet symbolic landmarks of Mumbai which for an individual, define their address and identity. To cherish these memories and hold on to them, we rolled out the #LanesByLens campaign. We believe cities are made out of lanes and lanes are made out of these small landmarks, which then become an important part of your postal address.”

Participants aged 16 and above, residing in Mumbai and possessing a valid Mumbai delivery address with a valid ID proof can enter the contest.
