Deerwalk Team was all set to celebrate the day with a picnic at Scout ground, Kakani. The presence of the Big Bs’ – Rudra Pandey and Jeff Gasser (Chairman, and President of the company respectively) – graced the program. I was enjoying the music and dance when everybody was called to the center of the ground. The two leaders were making some plans and finally the game was out. It was a 20-dollar prize quiz – all questions prepared on the fly – about Deerwalk. Each question was provided with two options. The team had to divide themselves into two groups for respective choice. The team that gave the wrong answer would get eliminated from the game, and then another question would again disintegrate the rest and eliminate recursively until only one winner was left.

Although I was not completely new, it was just little over three months that I had joined the company. Therefore, my prospects of winning the game seemed slim. So, I thought that I would use a life line – AshayT, meaning that I would move to whichever side he would move in response to each question, as he was one of the oldest employees (in terms of joining).

Finally, RudraP declared the answer and that ended the game. Yahoo! I had won!!!

It turned out that everyone else was thinking the same.

Thank god, the questions were of objective type and there were choices. Some questions were obvious while others were product related and not so obvious. Some of the obvious questions did not eliminate anyone while others did massively. At one point, AshayT took a lot of the remaining participants with him by giving wrong answer, and only three – ArjunA, MonikaA and myself – remained on the safe side. Then, we gathered and made a deal (fake, of course!) – “whoever wins ,the $20 prize will be divided among the three equally”. The final question came, and it left me alone on one side whereas the other two had a common answer different from mine. Finally, RudraP declared the answer and that ended the game. Yahoo! I had won!!!

I have treated this twenty dollar bill as a certificate from RudraP, awarded for being concerned about Deerwalk, participating in the events of the company, and above all, being a part of the Deerwalk family. I have a feeling that this $20 bill will invite many of its friends (other such bills, obviously!) and will start a great community at its residence – my wallet. To all those whom I had promised to share it with – you are welcome any time (during office hours, though) to see it, feel it, get inspired by it, and to put it back into its humble abode – my wallet – where it is still safe, hiding so much of potential within it.

I never imagined that the picnic would be so exciting before the event. This was my first picnic from Deerwalk. My initial thought was that it would be just another one of those picnics. Soon, I was proved wrong. With the music, dance and the games the whole day, this turned out to be the best picnic I ever had.

The musical chair game was an improvised version of the game with enthusiastic participation of more than seventy Deerwalkers. Having had played the game ages ago in my primary school days, I was excited to relive those memories all over again.

Luck was on my side this time around, as the stone was right in front of me when the music stopped. I stepped on the stone and was declared the winner of the game, not to mention the proud winner of the twenty dollar bill!

As the game progressed, the players got eliminated until we were down to five. I was surprised that I managed to get so far in the game. Further into the game, Pratik and I were the final two remaining, vying for the coveted prize – a twenty dollar bill.

Music blaring and crowd cheering, I was running with the little energy left in me. The music stopped. I quickly rushed to the unmarked stone, which was not too far from me. Pratik, all of a sudden, came running through inside of the circle and stepped on the stone. For a second, I thought that I lost. Then, I realized that he had violated the rule of the game that one could not run through the circle, only around it. I protested, and the jury decided to replay the final round. Luck was on my side this time around, as the stone was right in front of me when the music stopped. I stepped on the stone and was declared the winner of the game, not to mention the proud winner of the twenty dollar bill! All I could do now was to scream on the top of my voice with joy!

All of us were anticipating a day full of enjoyment and fun. It was the day we Deerwalkers were headed towards Kakani, the spot decided for our picnic. Most of us had already gathered at the office around quarter to eight in the morning. But as always happens in a group event, we got delayed, and our journey finally kicked off at around nine. We started off by singing songs and playing charades in the bus. We were getting hungry and were shouting on top of our voices and getting hungry was what was happening, to add to which our bus got stuck in a traffic jam. Grabbing the opportunity to get to eat something, we got out and found a small place where we got something to munch upon. Getting stuck with friends at times like these is not really bad; we clicked pictures…… all thanks to Manish for the memories preserved.

When we reached Kakani, we needed to walk towards the spot and none were aware which way to start with. Gathering information from others around, we moved and reached the spot. There, we were joined by Rudra and Jeff Gasser and few others who had taken the pains to reach early and organize the wonderful day. After breakfast, Rudra and Jeff introduced a new game to us, The Deerwalk Trivia. We were to choose answers to questions about Deerwalk, the group choosing the wrong answers were to be eliminated from the game. Majority was going with the majority and majority lost!!! Left were a few and the winner was Bhoj Raj. Exciting as well as informative, we enjoyed the game.

All pepped up, we were then ready to exhibit physical strength by a play of tug of war. Ten Teams and the muddy ground with a thick rope to tug at, we were all set. Some pulled, some fell, and Lava was literally dragged……. Dusty and sweaty, Sushanta’s team won facing a tough competition by the opposite team.

All set to enjoy the music we continued with some snacks, drinks, and dancing. Thanks to Dambar and BhuwanS for the groovy playlist and the music system. Amidst the cheers of the music lovers, few were basking in the sun and playing cards.

The day was amazing, full of excitement, for which we definitely need to thank all the organizers. Thanks to all for a day to remember!!

It was nice to have people gathered all around, few sharing some anecdotes, others enjoying music, cards and the delicious food our office chefs had prepared.

Musical Stones was on the list next. “Stones” because instead of sitting on chairs we used the platform stones lined in a circle there. Rajan won the game using all his energy to run around till the end. Later, we played bingo, all well planned and prizes distributed; the credit goes to Rupesh for planning and executing the games which made the day delightful.

As the sun was setting, we all wrapped up and headed back towards where our bus was parked. The day was amazing, full of excitement, for which we definitely need to thank all the organizers. Thanks to all for a day to remember!!

  26. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.
