This is not a photo of the Airtel banner, and not the beautiful little plant too. The marble structure in the photo is of the SASMIRA building which stands on a plot of land measuring about 12,000 sq.metres at the foot of Worli Hill Mumbai in the prime location of the city.

SASMIRA is THE SYNTHETIC AND ART SILK MILLS' RESEARCH ASSOCIATION. It is a cooperative venture set up by the man-made textile industry of India after independence as a multi-functional institute to serve its scientific and technological needs. It enjoys autonomous status so the Diploma programmes of the Institute enjoy academic freedom empowering each to experiment, innovate design and develop its own curriculum in order to keep pace with the industrial and technological development. It is linked to the Ministry of Textiles.

SASMIRA renders scientific and technical assistance to textile and related industries by Research & Development, Testing & Technical Services, Instrument Development, Computer Aided Design Services, Technical Education & Training and Organising Seminars & Conferences.

Few of the popular courses conducted at SASMIRA are:
Diploma in Fashion and Apparel Design Technology
Post Graduate Diploma in Apparel Merchandising
PG Diploma in Fashion Brand and Event Management(Full Time)
