India’s 75th Republic Day Celebrations @ Truminds Software Systems

Jan 26, 2024

Truminds celebrated the 75th Indian Republic Day in Style. The event was conducted in our Gurgaon office and was attended virtually by all the members of our Trumindsfamily globally.

On this special occasion, we had Captain Pranav Parashar, from the IndianNavy, as our Chief Guest. He is an alumnus of the National Defense Academy, Pune and the Defense Services Staff College, Wellington, Tamil Nadu, and has spent over 28 years in Indian Navy, serving the nation. During his career, he had the distinction of Commanding two frontline naval warships, heading the Warship Work Up Team and also commanding a Naval shore establishment. After his successful journey in the Indian Navy, during which he was honored with numerous medals and awards, Captain Parashar joined the Corporate and worked for more than a decade and he is now following his passion as a United States Golf Teachers Federation (USGTF) approved golf coach and mentor.

The event kick-started with the welcome speech by Rakesh Vij, where he spoke about how India is now being at the cusp of greatness, attributing its shine to the prowess of the IT sector and the contributions of the younger generation. This was followed by the address of Captain Parashar, where he has shared many interesting life lessons drawn from his experiences. He has emphasized on the impact of small victories and also highlighted the significance of collaboration and teamwork. Advising against vulnerability, Captain Parashar advised not to reveal weaknesses easily and in a world with potential challenges, maintaining a strong and confident demeanor is crucial, he added. Acknowledging life's difficulties, he has emphasized on resilience and that one should not get bogged down by minor issues and keep moving by focusing on the bigger picture.

Captain Parashar inspired our BrightMINDS with his interesting and engaging stories, followed by an interactive session after his speech. Later, we had a few stellar performances by Truminds employees across all our centers. As India shines on its 75th Republic Day, the collective efforts and contributions of individuals, inspired by the shared wisdom of leaders like Captain Pranav Parashar, will undoubtedly propel the nation toward greater heights.

Fittingly enough, the session ended with chants of “Jai Hind”, all of us feeling as one in that moment.
