If there is one festival that is eagerly anticipated throughout the country it has to be Holi or the Festival of Colors. And VirtualEmployee made sure that, as every year, this year too would be a memorable Holi in its offices.
Marking the end of the long winter and the arrival of spring, Holi is one of the most boisterous but loved festivals in India.
The VE management and HR teams had arranged for plates full of red, green, yellow, and pink dry color for employees to have a good time. This was the one day where old clothes were the norm as no one wanted their regular clothes to end up being dyed in different hues!
Celebrations began post lunch and started with the enthusiastic ones throwing gulal or the traditional red color on their immediate colleagues. The playful mood quickly caught on and soon everyone was in the thick of things, and the air streaked with a multi-colored haze.
The senior management also sportingly applied color on their colleagues as this was one day where hierarchy took a back seat to giving oneself up to the fun and child-like playfulness that characterized this festival.
The VE management had also arranged sumptuous snacks and beverages for the employees. After a while it was back to the workstations but the brief interlude had only whetted the appetite for the actual festival which was the following day!
