Trip to Alibaug

November 28th, 2011

We had a fun-filled and exciting weekend at Alibaug (12-13 Nov). It was a clubbed visit..firstly it was to attend a colleague’s wedding at Varsoli (Alibaug) and as the wedding venue was such a great weekend getaway for Mumbai people, we planned an overnight stay at one of the renowned resorts (Paradise Resorts, Mandwa).

We started off from Gate way of India to Alibaug through one of the regular ferry services. This is a good and quicker option to reach Alibaug. Travelling by ferry was awesome; on the way to Mandwa we could see lots of ships, speed boats and birds.

After reaching Mandwa jetty, we reached Alibaug to attend our colleague wedding at Parnakuti Resort, Varsoli village. The whole team enjoyed at the wedding and had a sumptuous lunch there. After greeting the blessed couple, we left for the other exciting part of our weekend fun.

On reaching the resort and after a small rest, we were all ready for fun in the swimming pool. After a long session in the pool, we were offered evening snacks. In the evening, we had lot of fun in team activities. Next came the dinner which was also quite filling.

Next morning, we all got up early to dive in the pool again along with some games in the pool itself (Nobody actually wanted to get out of the pool!!!). We also explored the places around the resort especially the river side. After having lunch and some rest, we started off for Mandawa jetty to catch a return ferry in the evening. The return journey was equivalently exciting.

We reached Colaba in an hour and along with the journey we took along beautiful memories of the weekend trip with the team.

It was one of the best times that we had with our group in Alibaug. I am sure no one would disagree. Hope we plan such exciting trip soon!!!

Vegayan’s day out at Innovations 2011

January 20th, 2011

Yet again, Vegayan was one of the shortlisted companies for its innovative products at INNOVATIONS 2011 hosted by Persistent Systems at their sprawling campus in Pune. There were altogether 14 such companies which showcased their innovative technology/products at the event. It was a one day event which started off with a keynote speech by Mr. Chetan Maini – the man who designed India’s first electric car –“Reva”. This was followed by Innovator presentations (Group I) which included Vegayan’s presentation. The presentations were followed by a common Q&A session wherein lots of inquisitive queries were asked by the audience; with equally interesting answers from the Innovators.

This was followed by a lunch-break cum exhibition at the exhibit floor where the Innovators had setup their stalls for showcasing their innovative ideas/products. Vegayan stall also had a good number of visitors who wanted to get more details about our company and products, our customers, the markets we cater etc.

After about an hour at the exhibit floor, we were again ready for yet another exciting round of Innovator presentations (Group II) and a common Q&A session. This was followed by a short tea break.

In the last session, an interesting presentation was delivered by L R Natarajan of Titan Industries- Jewellery Business Unit (Tanishq) on how its innovative practices revamped the jewellery business in India.

It was indeed a wonderful experience watching Innovators present and demonstrate their novel ideas. Few of these were quite impressive and if implemented, would bring in lot of benefits for the common man in terms of utility and affordability.

Keep innovating !!!

Kelva…The king of good times for Vegayanites!!!

November 22nd, 2010

Nothing like Anything…..so goes the tagline of the popular mobile brand Micromax and that perhaps also describes the energy packed and fun-filled weekend Team Vegayan had at Kelva beach Resort .

The resort, situated near Palghar, is on the beautiful, long and almost untouched beach of Kelva. The first look was impressive and it grew with time. With the rustic look all around, we had plenty of fun there. We stayed in nicely thatched bamboo huts.

In no time we all jumped in the swimming pool. With trees all around the pool it was a perfect treat.  We had a long and great session of water polo match. And that was just the beginning of fun. After having lunch we tried our hands on Pool Table, Table Tennis, Carom boards and what not. Soon it was followed by cricket and a football match on the beach (Yeah I know…we never stop when it comes to having fun!!!). The winning captain got some prizes which we all mistaken it for chocolates.

After all the tiring games, in the evening, we finally settled down on Antakshari, which turned out to be very entertaining and fun. The place was lovely at night.

Next day we started early. With few cups of tea, we were ready again to dive in the pool. After having breakfast, we had group photo sessions.

With our refreshed mind and exhausted body, we checked out to return to Mumbai for a lazy and relaxing Sunday to rejuvenate our body for a busy week ahead.

Lateral use of Saturday @ Vegayan…..

April 15th, 2010

Last Saturday, we had a very interesting session on “Lateral Thinking”. This is a problem solving approach christened by Edward de Bono which, as the name suggests, looks for not-so-obvious solutions. If you look around, many of the problems (be it in professional or personal life) have been resolved by implementing these so-called not-so-obvious solutions. For eg. The lassi-maker in Punjab who thought of using a washing machine to churn out lassis at a pace that could catch-up with the ever-increasing demand at his stall; would not have obviously thought of using a washing machine to prepare lassis at the first instance….!!!

So coming back to our session, we selected few objects which apart from their regular use, could be laterally used for something substantial in our day-to-day life. There were very creative and at times funny usage ideas from the Vegayan team which was divided in two groups for this exercise. This lateral thinking exercise was very much enjoyed and appreciated by the team.

After this exciting session, we went for a team lunch at a nearby restaurant to nourish our brains which were exhausted after flushing out so many ideas laterally..!!!
