This Women’s day, nobody came in pink and we did not give flowers! Today’s woman is not just ‘Pretty in Pink’, she is ‘Proud in Purple’. So what we did do was focus on courage, dignity and parity. Each event, each activity focused on celebrating that Strength. And of course, we had fun while we were at it!
We showed empowerment a path and saw the celebrations take its course. We empowered our employees to speak and write their minds, we empowered them with self-defense classes, we empowered them by bringing to light accomplished women.
At the beginning of the day, we placed a blank canvas for our women employees to let the world know how awesome they were. Within minutes, the canvas bore the proud signatures of the strong women that Ajuba personifies. We also got some celebrities in the mix! Cardboard cut-outs of famous celebrities were available for employees to click some happy pictures. Sessions on Personal Hygiene, self-defence classes and exciting contests were conducted to add to the plethora of activities.
‘She Inspires’ was a series that was started to glorify women that have accomplished great things but haven’t seen the recognition. Our employees had a great time identifying them. The Slogan contest saw some great closet writers take the fore. The winners walked home gifts and great memories.
Ajuba salutes the women of yesterday, today and tomorrow, for you truly are beauty, in every sense!
Wait, wait, wait… Hmmm… 10 points! That’s the right answer! Brilliant! And answers, of course!
Those and more were the constant phrases uttered by our intelligent participants and Quiz Master, Ashley Berty at Think Tank ’16 - Intra Quiz competition. This Republic Day, we set out to test the General Knowledge of our Ajubans and they did leave us mesmerized at the high levels of intelligence.
Over 70 odd teams signed up and we knew the competition, just like always, wasn’t going to be an easy one. Following the elimination round, 9 teams met head-on at the Finale. Answers flew across tables at the speed of arrows with such confidence and there were more hits and less misses. To fall in line with Republic Day, the theme of the quiz was all about India. The Quiz Master had put together an AV format of questions which made the competition lively and interesting for both participants and audience.
At the victory stand we had, Team Rock and Roll finish first, following them with Team Let’s Face It and in the third place we had Team Rocking Stars. The winners got to take home cash prizes and trophies. The recipients of this year’s Think Tank were overwhelmed to have made it to the top 3 which such tough contenders alongside. This Republic Day turned out to be a learning curve on the road to knowing more about our Motherland for everyone who was a part of Think Tank ’16.
The farmer’s festival, being the first celebration of the year was ushered in with much cheer! We kick started the calendar of events for 2016 on a brilliant note, by taking all the action right to our Ajubans at their bay.
The season of Pongal welcomed our employees with a picture perfect combination of sugarcanes, colorful kolams, thoranams and decorated pots even as they stepped in. Along came the time to turn to the Ethnic side of fashion, which our Ajubans make the most of! The special food, was the cherry to all the gala!
The day started off with games centered on the harvest festival. To get the crowd going, ‘Word Connect’, on first on the list. Any word that comes to the mind about Pongal was said one after the other, the best of which was awarded. Next came the real crowd-puller, the game of Tug of War, which saw some enthusiastic participation and hurting hands for sure. ‘Let’s herd some cattle, shall we?’ was the highest point scorer on the day’s agenda, Ajubans were asked to herd paper cattle to safety. Along came movie ticket vouchers for winners to enjoy Pongal releases. The activities brought in the right amount of energy and enthusiasm for the year ahead. Isn’t that what Pongal is all about? Here’s to limitless goodwill and blessings from above, just like always!
