In a recent cricket match organized by BluOne on Saturday, 1st February 2020 at SCG 2, Noida, the previous match winners, Royal Strikers, led by Paramveer Singh, won again.
The day opened with a trainer-led, warm-up session. Every player put in their effort on their stretches, bends, and twists, which helped play a great game. The attendees were grouped into two teams: Blu Lightning (led by Jitender Rawat) and Royal Strikers (led by Paramveer Singh). The day was sunny, and Royal Blu Strikers won the toss and elected to bat.
The Strikers started steadily with their opening pair of Sarvesh Panchal and Ajeet building a partnership of 27 runs. The Lightning bowlers put all their efforts however they couldn’t manage the breakthroughs as regularly as they needed. Credit must go to the top scorer and the man of the match Sarvesh Panchal, who kept chipping away at the target with his cuts and lofts. His partnership with Dilip of 27 runs, gave the match a turning point.
The strikers had great contributors from Sarvesh (43), Dilip (33) & Kunal (11). Their total score of 128/8 was a high target for the Lightning. Strikers were at 100 in 14.5 overs, with only 13 extras and they reached their total score in 19.5 overs.
In response, Jitender Rawat, captain of team Lightning, opened with Varun. Though they started with great spirit, Jitender got out (lbw) in 4 runs in 5 balls, by Sarvesh. After the first setback, their inning did not see any partnership, as they must have expected. Due to the regular strikes by Strikers, Lightning could only manage a score of 34 for the loss of 8 wickets and lost the match in 8.3 overs. Though a tough match, Lightning showed a great sportsman spirit, however, at the end of the day Strikers came out as champions.
On the eve of BluOne’s 3rd anniversary, a session on ‘Conscious Organisation’ was conducted by our mentor Partho. In the session, Partho discussed the concept of conscious organisations and conscious capitalism, as well as the process of creating a conscious organisation with dharma, core competence and mindfulness as building blocks. According to Parthoji, an organisation can be termed conscious when it works with the collective consciousness of the employees to create an environment where everyone is vigilant and unresolved issues do not go un-noticed as they often do in various organisations. He also discussed Dharma – the principle that upholds and protects — our inner truth, which acts as our motivating force to be and do good, to act according to Truth. Our dharma is what defines us. According to Parthoji, we should strive to create a transparent culture where people feel empowered to speak up and approach management. He also emphasized the need for employees to find their core competence. Core competence differs from a trait or passion, it defines a person’s area of expertise, for example, problem-solving, accounting or teaching. Attaining excellence in one’s core competency results in a symbiotic growth of the organisation and the individual. We thank you all for being a part of this organisation. We encourage all of you to excel in all that you do, within and outside of BluOne. Find your dharma, and align it with BluOne’s dharma, and let us all grow together.
What is BluOne’s dharma?
To work for the highest good of all, honestly and consciously. To create a conscious and happy workplace committed to mutual respect, personal sincerity and excellence.
