Compare Infobase celebrated India’s 63rd Independence Day on the 13th of August.
Though the Independence Day celebrations are held in the office every year, nevertheless the enthusiasm was quite obvious. The whole office was decorated with lots of tricolor balloons & flags which evoked the patriotic feeling in all of us.
To top the occasion it was mandatory for all to wear traditional dress in Tri Color. The participation was in full and the feeling of patriotism could be seen in one and all.
As a part of celebration we had a special lunch for all. It was a deliciously tempting menu, Veg. Biryani, Puri and Raita. To sweeten our taste buds we had Moong Dal halwa which was absolutely Yum and fantastic. Everyone relished the same.
Lunch was followed by work but only to gather and enjoy in the evening for an I. D celebrations.
