Hindi Diwas is observed on 14th September, to spread the awareness of the simplicity and the richness of this language. As India is a diverse country with various cultures and traditions, Hindi Diwas is a day which integrates the country under the blanket of our national language. Hindi Diwas also commemorates how Hindi language played a vital role for national integration during struggle for independence.
To mark Hindi Diwas, “PLANETCAST TAGLINE COMPETITION (IN HINDI)” is organised. Employees are asked to submit a crisp “Planetcast tagline” (not more than 1-2 lines) manifesting their creativity and Hindi.
Handwriting in Digital Age has become an obsolete skill. It’s no surprise that as technology has become increasingly integrated into our daily lives, the traditional act of writing has been somewhat forgotten. The ease of word processing documents has made the purpose of handwriting almost redundant. However, the act of writing should not be forgotten; as emerging research shows that handwriting increases brain activity, hones fine motor skills, and can even predict personality traits, in ways that keyboarding can’t.
It is with this thought, that “HANDWRITING COMPETITION”, is organised. The competition is held during work hours, wherein participants are asked to re-write a paragraph on plain sheet in blue / black ink, at any given time which is convenient to them and drop it in the ‘drop box’ placed in their department.

In the digital age, most of us are bound at our workstation and get little movement during the workday. Squeezing out time to go to the gym in between work and home life could be strenuous. However, being fit doesn’t always require a gym membership and changing into track-pants and sports-shoes. To combat the adverse effects of prolonged sitting and sedentary lifestyle on our back, wrists, eyes, neck, and shoulders, ‘Deskercise’ was initiated: simple stretches which could be done at desk and would not take more than 10 minutes.
