“The festival really is a community celebration,… it’s a wonderful free event; people learn about Escondido – Wendy Barker”
Diwali is a Hindu festival celebrated every year. This festival is celebrated in the honor of the return of Lord Rama, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana from exile of 14 years defeating Ravana. People of Ayodhya lit the “diyas” on the path symbolizing the victory of good over evil.
Well, here at Techno Infonet, we celebrated this victory with flair! A surprise and a planned celebration were done on 29th October 2016. It was a Saturday followed by a short mini vacation! So, of course, none of us had the feeling to work and were waiting for the clock to struck 1 so that we can start our Diwali celebration. All eagerness and patience ended as we started off our celebration with the Lunch party sponsored by the company.
After filling our stomach and consuming the energy to work and celebrate, we all gathered for the Rangoli competition. We divided ourselves into two teams – Web Development team and Marketing team and started off with the Rangoli competition. It seemed to be a real and a growing competition between the two. Great color scheme, design, and artistic representation were shown by both the teams. But a competition has only one winner, and our judge, Director Sam Maniar declared Chandni’s team as the winner. They really had good design, color scheme, and way of presentation was excellent!
After the competition, we all gathered in the office to decorate it. Some were busy blowing the balloons and some busy decorating the office glass with the props. It was really fun decorating as if we were decorating our own house! It was indeed adorable to look the office premises full of balloons and props and “torans”. Last but not the least, our selfie captured all the fun moments and the masti that we did during our celebration. Yes, indeed this Diwali celebration had it all! “Diwali means Lavish meals, Bright lamps, Festive activities, and Colorfful garlands… These are the elements of Diwali festival. Complete this celebration with prayers and warm wishes.” Happy Diwali and a prosperous New Year!
