Decidedly a different Diwali out here! Not much veering away from the traditional celebrations of having loads to eat and fun things to do! Our HR leader Miti had many many tricks and treats up her sleeve and she let go of them one after the other!
First of all, a cookery competition with the staff being divided into teams . Theme – Innovative Diwali sweets or savouries…. There was extremely brisk activity in the kitchens with everybody trying to keep their ideas a big hushed secret! But it sure does not work in a work place like ours because everyone is very friendly…and helpful. So there were sweets and savouries set before me and does give a judge a difficult time in choosing the best? Always!
The prize was shared by two teams
Anupa Das with Tripta Bhagattjee
Saurabh Mishra with Priyanka Dubey
The dishes? First was the “Kesar Sandesh with Rajgira Crispies“
and I also liked the innovative ‘Fête des lumières‘ made by the second winning team.
We were all thrilled to know that creativity got a new sparkle on Diwali day.
Next from Miti:
KHANA KHAZANA – DIWALI PATAKA CONTEST
It was very simple. The staff had to nominate one of the Khana Khazana Member for the following categories. Who do you think resembles the following?
Rassi Bomb: – The most Hot character in the company in attitude,looks, work and talks – They nominated me!!!
Lakshmi Bomb: – The most Indian character in the company, very close to ideal – Vaishali Nikam (from accounts department)
Phuljadi: – Someone who comes across very lively, smiling and fun person – Chef Anupa Das (her laughter is contagious)
Rocket: – A person to whom you give any challenge, he/she can take it off the ground – Dilpreet Singh Kohli (a budding chef, youngest member in the Khana Khazana family)
Bhit Bhadaka: – Toughest nut on the block, very hard in-terms of sentiments, pressure and stress – Rajeev Matta (COO – Khana Khazana)
Fauwara (Fountain): – A person you feel who has highest potential to grow in this company- Dilpreet (way to go young man!)
Zamin Chakra: – A person who is down to earth, always ready to help- Vaishali Nikam (shy and quiet Vaishali seems to be opening up)
Time Bomb: – The person who is always punctual to work, first to reach office and last to leave – Priyanka Dubey (From Accounts Team .. always on time)
See, I told you we had a lot of sparklers at work! Wishing you all a fantastic day ahead replete with lovely sounds of laughter and aromas of good food!
HAPPY DIWALI !
