A Festival to Light the Way

Diwali 2016

Diwali 2016

The tradition of Diwali, from the diyas to the gorgeous offerings to the fireworks, makes it an exceptionally beautiful festival of light. Being one of the most significant festivals in our “Indian culture”, it’s an auspicious time for everyone to start a new chapter in their lives by detaching all fears, sorrows, evils with happiness, joy and vibrancy. The beautiful spirit of the celebrations and contagious positive energy that make the holiday truly radiant is what makes it one of the most awaited celebration for everyone. Diwali is all about happiness – and fun! The lights, for which the celebration is called ‘Deepavali’ represents the triumph of light over dark, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. As such, the best way to celebrate this auspicious festival is to light a candle or oil lamp, called a diya.

Every year, the staffs at Supertron Infotech Pvt. Ltd India continue their tradition of performing a small puja, or offering to the deities, to mark the festival. All the staff, member and their family attend the puja with great enjoyment and this simple things are what makes Supertron more than a workplace, a family. The purohit performs the puja everyone from the office takes part. It is like an extended break and the opportunity to spend more quality time with their families. Like every other year, the Supertronites were on their happy feet when it came to office decoration. The whole place was gleaming with the light of electric diyas and small fairy lights.

On the day of puja, our CEO Mr Sanjay Chaudhury arrived with his family. The preparation was done and all were waiting for the puja to get started. The HR manager Ms. Payeli Sen Majumdar and project manager Mr. Debarun Biswas decorated the office with beautiful flower design and wonderful rangoli. The whole atmosphere seemed to be filled up with serenity and piousness. As the chanting began, all gathered at the prayer dias to offer their pujas to the deities. Once the puja was over, the HR manager, was all set to handover the pack of sweets. As mentioned by our back office executive, Mr Somnath Dey, “I love this festival simply because of all the fun and frolic associated with it. We buy new cloths and light up diyas and the office puja is nothing short of what happens in my home!” For others, Diwali is simply a chance to celebrate being together as a family. “Due to my work, I stay away from my family,” says Debarun Biswas. “Here, my kid even feels like being in our house.”

With faces gleaming with happiness and laughter, the workplace was no more looking like a workplace, rather, a family gathering. Like every passing year, this year also started off with the blessings of Lord Ganesha and Mata Laxmi for a prosperous and happy year.
