The New Year Bash happened with a gala celebration on 30th Dec 2013 heralding the end of another year and beckoning a fresh and happening New Year.
The Ascenders gathered at the NSIC Auditorium where a variety of programs were planned well in advance. This year we had business presentations made by the heads followed by an inspiring talk by our chief guest Mr. Shaktivel.
The young, energetic and dynamic leader of his own quickly growing outfit is a self-made man who believes that the secret of success lies within individuals and he makes it a point to tap that hidden potential in everybody he meets.
In the small and brief session with us, he managed to awe us with his humility and fluent speech which was fired up with his own enthusiasm and confidence; the confidence he has in people in general is breath taking! No wonder that at his young age he is surrounded with his own army of ardent and faithful followers. His motto: To create and distribute wealth.
After a short but completely charged talk that had us all spell bound, we had a treasure hunt that saw the Ascenders running all over the building searching for clues that would ultimately lead them to the treasure.
A sumptuous lunch of biryanis followed. After lunch there was an intellectually stimulating activity – the AscendersTech version of Neeya Naana! Our very own PVR donned the role of Gopinath minus the signature blazer. The topic of debate: Has modern development become a boon or a bane? The discussions (or rather, the heated arguments) that followed had everybody clamoring for his or her say. The best speakers for both teams were recognized by our homegrown Gopinath.
Then there was fun and games that followed with lots and lots of unbridled laughter. One of the games had contenders vying for AscendersTech strongest man of the year.
New Year Resolutions:
Another game titled ‘Banana Shake’ had contenders shaking bananas out of their trousers!
Then there was ‘Baby’s day out’ where mothers made sure that their babies were well fed after their day out.
A card game that had people grabbing gifts from a whole gift display and not satisfied with those, ended grabbing other people’s gifts as well!
AscendersTech birthday babies were honored during the course of the day with a lovely birthday cake and gifts.
The day went on to see songs sung and danced to with the usual AscendersTech gusto.
