Today the office was in a free and festive mood what with Pongal just around the corner. This year the celebrations were a little grander than usual, there was a nice little Pooja conducted, staff came forward to entertain their colleagues with melodious songs; the ambience was pleasant.
Entertainment galore at AscendersTech!
After a short prayer, sweet pongal was distributed.
Amidst the celebrations, there was a sugarcane breaking competition where all the He-men of AscendersTech proved their prowess much to everyone’s delight.The competition was initiated by our CEO Dr. Thiru.
There was a lot of cheering as each He-man tried to outdo the other by employing various techniques to break bunches of sugarcane. We had bits of sugarcane flying around with each resounding crack; someone actually began to crush the juice out of his sugarcane! Juice sprayed across the office amidst loud applause.
Bangles and flowers were distributed to the women folk of AscendersTech; everyone got a taste of the traditional sweetmeats procured by HR & Admin just for the occasion.
It was a loud and jocular occasion where our CPO donned the role of a solemn priest at the beginning of the celebrations and then switched over to his excellent HR persona where he highlighted the fact that all the songs sung during the occasion had been Krishna lyrics; and this only symbolized that Krishna being a universal and master strategist, this year would be a year of Strategy for Ascenders Technologies!
