A fun-filled and stress-free weekend at Happy Campus of Infosys

Want to have a look at the IT campus of one of the IT giant companies in India? Want to look into the work environs in these campuses? Then here is a wonderful opportunity for you to get an insight into the IT world.

Recently, Infosys has introduced the concept of 'Happy Campus' in the same lines of 'Happy Streets' or 'Raahgiri'. This was initiated in view of providing an opportunity to the Infoscions to walk-in / drive-in to the Infosys Campus along with family and friends on specified weekends at specified time and participate in various fun-filled activities for refreshing and recharging.

The 'Happy Campus' program not only provides a fun-filled weekend activity in the Infosys campus but it also provides an opportunity for the family members of IT employees to know about the work environs of IT industry. Family members most of whom have no knowledge of the IT campuses, are given the opportunity to get into the campus which otherwise is not allowed. They can move around the campus for a better understanding of the IT life.

Besides getting to know of the IT work environs, Infosys has arranged a good number of fun-filled activities for all age groups. The campus remains open for family and friends on specified weekends (Saturdays) at specified timings, generally from 7.30 a.m to 10.00 a.m. Visitors are given printed passes at the gate.

On getting into the campus, people are lost in their own world enjoying the environs in their own way. Some are engaged in playing table-tennis while others are involved in yoga. While others are busy having delicious breakfast, both local and continental, at the food stalls. Of course, on self-payment basis.

The various events include games like snooker, carom board, football, tug of war etc. Sports and fitness activities like meditation for both adults and children, meditation and yoga for adults, swimming, cricket, volley ball, basket ball, tennis, badminton, cycling etc. The fun-filled entertainment include graffiti, photo booth, face painting and tattooing, zumba dance, live music, hula hoops, skate boarding, sketching and drawing etc. There are various games and interesting activities for children like painting / coloring / drawing to keep them engaged. They enjoy these the most.

In fact, it is a baby's, aha!, children's day out. Children are lost in their own world with lots of fun activities on campus and it is they who enjoy the most. At the end of the day, most of the children are reluctant on leaving the campus and want to stay inside for more fun. The main attraction is 'Graffiti' fore both children and adults who are getting glued to it.

There is a live music band and music lovers too have an enjoyable time relaxing on the green lawns and listening to their favorite songs.

Uf!!, continuous playing, running around in the lawns. Damn tired and want to relax for a while in the lawns. So, just ease out yourself in the green lawns under the shade of trees and relax for while. It's cool and refreshing. 

Ah! what a relaxation!
Or else, one can even have a splash in the cool waters of the swimming pool for a fresh feeling.

And then relax for a while after the splash. 

Cool! Relaxing after a splash
Wonderful experience. Much of recharging and energizing and its time to get back to homes with a fit body and fresh mind. Some return to their homes while others stay on campus and move around enjoying the beauty of the campus, have lunch in the restaurants or subs in the sub-ways. They return home with a contented feeling and carry with them, the wonderful moments at Infosys campus.

A program worth enjoying with family and friends on a weekend. It is in fact, a community celebration where there is much of interaction and togetherness.

How To Perform Aksharabhyasam At Home And Basar temple

Aksharabhyasam is a traditional religious function of Hindus. 'Akshara' means letters (alphabets) in Sanskrit and 'abhyasam' means practice. It is also known as 'Vidyaarambham' which literally means starting of education. In this function a child is given initiation for writing / education. With this function the child is ready to receive formal education in a school. The function is performed in different ways in different regions of India.

In the olden days, aksharabhyasam was performed when the child was 5 years old. But presently because of early education at Kindergarten level, parents perform this ceremony when the child is in his 3rd year i.e. after the child completes 2 years. Normally there is a belief that aksharabhyasam should not be performed after the child completes 3 years and is in its 4th year.

The function can be performed either in a temple or at home.
