Diwali is often referred to as the festival of lights, and it is the time for religious rituals and sharing traditional stories. Every region in India has distinctive traditions for commemorating this festival, but whatever the customs, there is agreement that Diwali represents the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and wisdom over ignorance. It is considered a symbol of happiness, prosperity, diversity, and integrity.
We at Webkul had another blossoming year being lauded with the Diwali celebration. Definitely, it was tough for us to celebrate with complete strength due to the pandemic, still, we figured out the best and made it very ravishing due to the hybrid pattern of working.
Starting with the Rangoli Competition, we parted the employees into different teams to draw the rangoli. Wherein, every individual performed at their best and participated with avidity. Certainly, everybody was not so good at it, they gave them all their efforts to make the day cherished with joy and laughter because the purpose of the celebration was solidarity with the light competition.
Of course, Diwali is incomplete without the worship of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laxmi. So the other activity we arranged was ‘Paper Folding Statue’. In this activity also, we segregated the people into groups and they chose one person to be a statue, rest of the team accessorized and embellished the statue with paper and made them look as near as with the god and goddess.
It was quite difficult to make it, once again the team proved to us that they are best at anything and everything. The performance was commendable and brilliant.
The last activity was Invisible Talent where it was an open room to showcase their talent. People participated and presented their singing, dancing, instrument playing, mimicking, and so on.
Be it Diwali or any other festival, it is all about keeping a connection with our roots, culture, origin, and preserving it.
On the same day, a number of virtual activities were held with the purpose to bring our tight-knit community even more closer. The activities consisted of lots of trivia games, quizzes, general knowledge questions, and whatnot.
In this way, another year and another day ended with Diwali being celebrated at Webkul, it was a very contended, soothing, and positive vibing environment all around. The event ended with so fascinating moments and created a bond of togetherness among us.
