2015, We called it the year of “transformation” and 12th Jan, the foundation day of Auriga IT or as we call it Auriga Day. We celebrated Auriga Day last week, here at Auriga’s Jaipur Headquarters with its complete team. Dress code for the event was black and blue, and Auriga’s newly designed awesome T shirt ofcourse . We started at 11 in the morning and were accompanied by all the member of Auriga. Gaurav and Ayush came all the way from Delhi to join us, we started the day with a full house national anthem.
Presentation: The celebration started with a nostalgic presentation from Gambheer Singh in form of a video that had all the cool moments from past year. This amazing video really set the mood for the day.
Directors Speech: “We now have all the right resources in the boat” As always, Directors speech was inspirational and thought provoking. We all sat in silence for 1 and half hours and listened to “what we are doing and how we are so good at it”. Top two things to take away from it were, “When things get smooth then the real problems starts”, Divye told this while comparing the present and past scenario of the company. Second was said by Ronak while describing the future of the company and its aspirations “We have always helped starts up, if you look at Auriga’s journey you would find that most of our clients were and are start ups and in a way we are helping them build their dreams too”

Treasure hunt : After the inspirational speech from Directors, Mohan, Saurabh and Praveen organized a very interesting treasure hunting game, which was played with 4 teams.The task was to look for the “white slip” following a trail of clues. Each team was given a time of 10 mins to finish the search and under very sketchy conditions Amit’s team won the expedition in a record time of 6.40 Mins.

Funny Titles: It is a tradition to give out funny titles on every Auriga Day, hence Nishant and PK took the opportunity to give out the funny titles to each and every one of us. All of the titles were spot on and hilarious to say the least even as some of the titles were allegedly inspired by B-Grade Hindi movies.
Skits : 2 hilarious skits were performed, 1st one was about 2 goofy terrorist who were planning to bomb Jaipur but failed miserably as one of the terrorist found out that his mother was at one of the bomb site, it was prepared and performed by Sahil, Vinod, Gambheer and Shubam. Other skit was a satirical skit on the change that IT has seen over the years with various scenarios like how clients, Freshers, Management, interviews etc have changed over the 6-7 years. This hysterical skit was penned and performed by Hitesh, Amit, Siddharth, Gaurav and Vaibhav.
