PlaySpan's Diwali celebration 2010.

Today, we had Diwali celebration in our office and it turn out to be really great and one of the most memorable Diwali celebration in my professional life. Now days I am just amazed at my teams enthusiasm and positive energy. Whether its work or any other activity, we are getting really cool response from all the people. I think today, all people of my core team will be very very Happy. Since last three and half years we are working really hard to proceed each step forward but in recent times as far as team is concerned we were not able to get newly joined people to our level of enthusiasm and involvement. But we never give up and kept trying. So finally today I can see that we have got success to large extent and I can see not only core team but also entire office is having great enthusiasm and positive energy about the project. If we continue this then I think PlaySpan will reach its goal very soon...!!! Of course credits goes to entire team for its effort but we should really thanks to Vinayak Sir for his behind the scene effort. Also our HR Kavitha, PD and twinkle are really doing cool job in team building activity. he he he he he ... I guess I am becoming emotional ;)

As a part of Diwali celebration we had bay decoration competition in our office. Each team was given a theme and accordingly we had to decorate our bay. So for this CS had got "Haunted house" theme. PSM had got "Bollywood" theme. QA had got "Jungle" theme. For this activity MTX, Reports and HR were merged into one team and we had got "market" theme. So since last couple of days I can see that teams are syncing after office hours for taking various decision for their bay decoration, putting up all the creativity to decorate their bay so that it will look the best. So working during office hours and after office hours putting up some extra effort for decorating bay.... he he he he .... thats what is called a team spirit..!!! Till now everyone's identity was their professional skills only, but Now we know.... oh... some people paint things nicely, some are good at craft, Someone can give good light effects.... and all and all... So apart from our professional skills, everyone is having one or other really good skills.. Nice to know..!!! During all these activity at least for one day, just went back to school and college days where we used to do all these activities for our projects. I think this is really good short break from work where you just think differently apart from your work and gets rejuvenated.

Finally today on celebration day, entire environment was charged up. everyone was busy in getting remaining things done for their bay. My team MTX is always busy with tons of blockers ;) can't help it. Still we started yesterday night itself and today we were successful in getting things in place. For our market theme we had set up of small village market where there were many shops and small Rangeela theater. Sudha had "Poda" beauty shop. Niraj was having "Milk" shop. [this shop magically gets converted into "Gavathi bar" after 6pm ;) ] Paresh was having mobile shop. Riche had attar shop which was one of the best shop in our market. Good work riche for really small detailing in this shop. Sandeep W had firecrackers shop. Sangeet was street seller who was selling many things. Hey I guess your thinking what I was doing?? ....... I had "Usman Bangali Baba" shop (sab dard ka ke hi elaj....he he he he ) But in all our theater rocked liked anything...he he he he .... We had managed to show various Rajanikant films shots in our theater. So during entire day our theater was full in form and everyone enjoyed it... Even Vinayak sir find some time for one of our show.. We entertain all people in our market who came to purchase various things (Though nobody purchased anything because of very high cost.. he he he he ).. In fire crackers shop, "aapati bomb" was too good and we gave 11 aapati bomb salami to Vinayak sir to welcome him in our market..... Harshil's (who is our big B) entry for opening ceremony of "Sulabh Sauchalay" was ultimate..!!! he he he ..... This small part really rocked the market ;)

This time, CS was in different level of form. they had decorated their bay very nicely with their theme of "Haunted house" and also everyone was dressed up like ghost. Really appreciate their extra ordinary effort in dressing and all. Also their entry was really dashing. everyone was having some kind of ghost face... but Raj didn't had anything... I guess he don't need any ghost face to look like ghost... he he he he .....Being "Bangali Baba" in market, I also joined this gang of ghosts and we enjoyed in entire office. I was behind them and tried to push them out of office. So this ghosts and bangali baba's tu-tu-mai-mai also rocked like anything.... PSM had setup bollywood multiplex with all different variety of movies..... I liked all the different types of movie posters they had posted. QA team had really great effort in setting up jungle theme on their bay. They had done really minute level of detailing while setting up this jugle, I just liked it a lot. Also various animals voice recoding played by them, created some reality effect. Sagar was dressed up like mogali...but everyone found him like a Shakira... he he he ... Twinke was in shikari dress up. Also at one side they showed some civilization and tried to gave some global warming message. Today nobody will say that its PlaySpan's office :) Our judge vinayak sir spent time with all the people and saw all peoples creativity. Finally he declared CS as a winner team. I had managed to get all detailed pics of all the bays. (link to pics is given at the end of this post.)

Entire day was full of masti and dhammal. Everyone forgot work at least for some time and was shouting, doing some mimicry, some photo session. Whether we were in market, jungle, bollywood or in haunted house, everyone enjoyed a lot. It was so much fun. Everyone got good break from office work and energy to get back to work again ;) Finally end of the day, as usual Kavitha had surprise for us and Vinayak sir gave diwali gift to everyone. Guess what was it???... It was wrist watch. So everyone got really cool wrist watch :) Almost everyone come to office on time but I guess by giving wrist watch as a gift sir just want to convey message that "Guys, use this watch, Please come on time to office and work on time..!!!".... he he he he ... Just kidding sir...!!! Thanks to all PlaySpanian's for making this celebration really grand...!!!

I guess these festivals are "fill in the blanks" in our life..!!! didn't got it???.... see, just try to recollect your school days when we used to write a exam, which question used to give us more marks in less time if you write it correctly???.... of course it was "fill in the blanks".. where we just used to write one proper missing word in entire sentence and within a second we used to earn good marks for it. Similarly, In todays life everyone is trying to find some happiness from his stressful life... These festivals are "fill in the blanks" opportunity for us... Just fill them with great and full on energy, I mean just enjoy them, you will get maximum Happiness.... he he he he ... while writing this, its almost 2 am and I am becoming philosophical :)

Last but not the least "HAPPY DIWALI" in advance to everybody..!!! May this festival of light brings prosperity and Happiness in your life...!!!
