We were doing the announcement of potluck that is happening in the office for the independence day celebrations. Saneesh approached me and asked me if we are also calling for the Onam celebrations. We Syntillations team when ever tried to do some religious or cultural celebration of one particular group of people then there was always an objection from some one or the other saying that the previous team has not done this because of some issues. Keeping this in mind I told him that let me discuss with the team and get back to you. Saneesh again said that he has got some contact of a person who prepares “Adapradaman”, a porridge made in Kerala, and would give his contact. Since I too am from Kerala, I actually did not wanted to comment on it or propose it. But Nandu who overheard the conversation immediately responded saying. Yes, we can do it. He then told me that let’s call him and get the details.
I then asked Saneesh to contact him and get the details. On the same day in the evening Vimal and Dilan found me on the way and made a proposal of giving banana chips and “Sarkaravarati” to all the employees, by collecting money from the malayalies who are interested in it. I liked the proposal and said that I will send a mail to all the malayalees I know and let them cascade. I checked with Nandu and he said that we could do this also from syntillations. I told him that this is the happiness that the people wanted to share to the rest of the people, and it is not about the money. He was convinced. I then told them that if the ends are not meeting then we can get the help of syntillations. I send mail to a few people and it went on cascading. The mail also had a survey. We got response from 143 people.
Then there was also an Athapookalam in front of Logica designed by Previn, drawn by Sulfy and decorated by Anee, Sruthi and team. It was also a nice one. It took 4 hours to complete it.
Then came a proposal from Nandu about making a nair’s tea shop in the cafeteria. Rajesh Thayial helped in arranging the tea master and the accessories for the shop. Previn Named it as Chandran’s chayakada. Josin brought banana and hung it in front of the shop. Which gave a perfect look. There was also a glass almara in which there was some pazham pori and puttu in it.
