What did Women’s day 2023 at DriveStream, India look like for me!

This one is for the men at DriveStream, Chennai, India.

“When you change your thoughts, remember to also change your world.”—Norman Vincent Peale. And that’s what the men at DriveStream  did for us women on this special day.

I don’t know where to start but let’s do it from when I entered the office the decor and vibe was splendid to know that you did it all by yourselves talked a million words.

The exchange of hampers was such a heartwarming experience specially for me, since I got to do it with my favorite Lakshmi who unconditionally takes care of our needs every single day. I made a new friend today, Guna who came across to me to hand over my hamper and I got to meet her for the first time and understood her hidden talent of how gracefully she can dance.

For the first time I got to witness so much talent all on one floor ( though it required a little persuasion and also meant me shaking my legs to ensure other girls felt comfortable to join the dance floor) but once the mood was set in there was not much to do but just sit back and enjoy rest of the afternoon with so much excitement and fun. I made so many new friends and was jumping with excitement like a teenager in college.

The cake was not only beautiful but was so tasty that I gobbled up a few pieces ( that’s very not me)  The lunch was more of a festivity and community dining it was. 

The highlight of the day that we spent was a beautiful comradeship that we all built around us by realising that each person is gifted with a skill that is unique and that appreciating each other and applauding another person’s talent is what talks about one’s kindness.

Be the woman who fixes another woman’s crown without telling the world that (it) is crooked. … Be kind! We never know the battle others are fighting. I hope that we can all find a way to lead with an open heart and assume positive intent.”

Thank you my dear men colleagues for creating an environment on this special day for us to cherish!
