But what caught everyone’s attention was the attention to detail. A few of our colleagues sported blue, representing the Ashoka Chakra, adding a touch of completeness to the tricolor theme.

The highlight of the morning was the flag-hoisting ceremony. As the tricolor unfurled, our Founders – Rohit Ajmani and Sahil Walia stood tall, saluting the sky, embodying the pride and respect we all felt. The air was filled with the resonant notes of our National Anthem, and for those few minutes, we were all united, paying homage to the heroes who made this day possible.
