With India having the largest youth population in the world, it is not just important but crucial to be concerned about issues that affect the youth of the country today. And education or rather the lack of it is perhaps the most critical one of such issues. We at MakeMyTrip believe that nurturing children today and helping them gain knowledge and education will lead to a better and brighter future. And we are doing our bit through MakeMyTrip’s corporate mentoring program with Udayan Care, which runs homes for orphaned, abandoned and abused children. This month, employees who have volunteered to mentor children, spent time with children between the age group of 5 to 17 years at their home on MG road and discussed their career interests, future goals, further studies and part time jobs. The evening ended with what we do best – eat and have a super fun time!
At MakeMyTrip, it’s not just work but a whole lot of play too because we all know that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! And there could be no one better to endorse this theory than our very own CEO, Mr. Deep Kalra, who, along with our CPO Mr. Amit Somani joined other Table Tennis champs of the office for an exciting ping-pong tournament. Not only was this a chance for all the TT aficionados to showcase their talents but also pure fun and entertainment for the spectators. The battleground was the 4th floor cafeteria and the champions’ weapon of choice, the paddle. And what were they all competing for? Pride, honour? Naah...to be the TT champ of champs at MakeMyTrip! Watch this space for the results and more details on the tournament.
And from Table Tennis, it’s now onto Cricket. This month, as the nation is gripped by the IPL 5 fever, so is everyone at MakeMyTrip! ‘We’ decided to run a cricket quiz or ‘Cric Quiz’ with IPL tickets up for grabs. From IPL trivia to ‘green’ initiatives to face painting; a lot happened in the name of IPL and more than 100 tickets were given away in prizes! The face painting competition took place on April 26th and after much fun, coloured hands and faces, some 300 plus votes and a massive counting task, we finally got our winners. The winning team oola la la la le o-ed their way to the top, bagging couple tickets to Jhumroo at the Kingdom of Dreams. Other two teams, which also received Jhumroo tickets, shared the runners-up position. Kudos to all the face painters!
Is there is any such award for ‘The Most Happening Workplace’? Well, if there is, guess who’s going to be the most deserving candidate? No prizes for guessing eh!
The month of April in particular has been quite an eventful one. From Table Tennis to IPL fever to social initiatives; no single day has been the same at MakeMyTrip.
