Women’s Day

This day of 8 March, is packed with fever of woman’s day around. My ADM work team comprises of 22 women and 14 men(including me) making total 36 software engineers. Gender ratio of female to male is 11:7. So, there are 61 % women in my team.
I am watching, all girls came today in office with exhilarating happiness. Few girls were seen in Sari, and many in their own traditional clothing. Couple of girls has received roses in their aerobics class. One team mate has offered Chocolates to all girls in the team. What a good spirit ! This idea really touched my heart. It’s about respect for women and their work. During difficult time of work, these girls stood firm and helped get the work done before deadline.
One of my other teammates, has received a beautiful gift from her boyfriend. She is very happy on this moment. Actually, she received a gift yesterday by currier. I was trying to know what is inside the gift pack? She just showing to everyone with so much proud of her friend. It is a greeting card and a gold colored coupled heart show piece. Each heart has blood red pearl inside. Greeting card has picture of human love birds dancing on front side. If I try to open it, one melodious music starts playing.
In my office also there were some special programs for women. At 11 AM morning, there was photo shoot event for ladies. I browsed the photos of this event. In the afternoon, company has organized Tug of war only for women. All women are invited for in this competition. Two groups of ten women will compete in ‘Tug of war’. All girls in winning team would get a gift vouchars along with rose as prize. It was prize of their vigor and winning spirit. I just tried to enter the crowd along with my friend Vishal. Cybage lawn was really thrilled with feminine element around. Wind blowing around also cheering for women. Group of boys were cheering with slogans like “Come On.. Princess..!”
We have movie Theatre ‘Big Cinema: Gold Adlabs’ nearby my office in Kalyani Nagar. I heard that there is a free movie show for women today.
