This Independence Day, the air at ixigo workplace exuded of sheer patriotism. With the whole office decked with tricolor balloons and the ixigems dressed in ethnic wear celebrating the theme of the day, the revelry really began with everyone singing the national anthem in full chorus. The days like this make us more united than ever.
To celebrate the spirit of Independence and the cultural diversification of India, an event was organized, in which the ixigems were to decorate their respective office bays depicting different states. The day was filled with fun and frolic as teams took to adorning their bays with full dedication. It was a platform for the ixigems to display innovation, creativity, and teamwork; the core values ixigo runs on.
A special lunch was organized by the office for the ixigems. The snacks were also served as a refreshment while everyone actively indulged in the spirit of coming out of the competition with winning colours.
Soon in the office, one could take a tour to, the happy-go-lucky Goa, the colourful state of Rajasthan, the hippie culture of Himalayan Cafes, the rustic swag of Punjab, the ecstatic beauty of Uttarakhand, the pride of nation Jammu and Kashmir, and the historical Jallianwala Bagh.
The runner-up prize went to the team pitching for Uttarakhand, for their inspired depiction of state and the way it involved innovation. While the first prize was awarded to the Jammu and Kashmir team for taking us through the authentic experience of the Vaishno Devi pilgrimage. The winners took huge goodie hampers to their home.
We, here at ixigo, are divided as teams and united together with a single motive — to simplify travel experience through the ixigo platform itself. The independence day event was a proof of this fact.
