The noises of computers and those working hard on them was nowhere to be heard. Instead, the pouring rain was the defining sound. The competitiveness in the office to see who completes projects first was replaced by the race to see who reaches the top of the fort first. Getting drenched in the rain, drying ourselves after a while just to get soaked all over again was the order of the day. This is what the trip to Sinhagad fort was all about.
Everyone was excited and busy days prior to the trip: Planning, organizing and arranging for transport. We just couldn't wait for the weekend to arrive. Even though it was an early start, the enthusiastic responses were encouraging and we were soon on our way to the historical Sinhagad Fort.
Sinhagad Fort is 25 kilometers from Pune. It is a hotspot for trekkers and a favorite picnic spot. It stands 700 metres high and can be reached either by foot or by vehicle. It is also a military training base for the National Defence Academy (NDA) in Khadakwasla, Pune. The fort also houses a television tower which is instrumental in providing services to the city of Pune.
Our first stop was the Khadakwasla Lake. The beautiful lake and the dam are truly breathtaking in the rainy season with the surrounding lush greenery adding to its beauty. Here, we had fun playing a lot of games and having a good time. One of the favorites, tug of war, was played with great enthusiasm by all. We had fun, slipping and falling at times but getting back up again to help our teammates win the game.
In a fast changing social setup, the stress levels and work pressures are high among working professionals which in turn are affecting marital relationships and the situation of those working in the IT industry seems to be no different. Many IT professionals are looking at the institution of marriage as a contract or just an arrangement that can be altered according to one's convenience. To address this much discussed and important topic, a one day seminar was organized by the Rotary Club of Pune Gandhibhavan on pre-marital and post-marital issues with a special spotlight on people connected with the IT industry. The Club has organized many such seminars in the last four years with many significant social issues brought into perspective. A major focus at this seminar was on the social, legal and economic perspectives of pre-marital and post-marital issues and guest speakers were invited to guide the participants to maintain healthy relationships with their spouses which in turn will lead to a happy, healthy and balanced society.
In tune with the festive mood of Christmas and New Year, the annual get together of InfoBridge on 26th December 2008 added joy to the celebrations. This was the event everyone was looking forward to, it provided the best stage to end the year with a bang!
After refreshing everyone with a quick breakfast, the event began with the Saraswati pooja and the lighting of the lamp by Kanchan Gauri. Roopa welcomed everyone with a great spirit. With a presentation on the Growth and Future plans of InfoBridge, Kanchan highlighted the importance of development through positive thinking. It was an absolute treat to hear Sangeeta singing the Christmas carol 'O Holy Night', describing the night when Christ was born. Her melodious voice rang loud and clear in the conference room. Chetan's presentation on how to reduce wireless spending, amidst a lot of technical jargon and software lingo, was very informational and interesting.
