Despite the strenuous nature of their work during the World Cup, where several projects and innumerable meetings were the norm, Gupta stated that they had an endless supply of energy.
A message from her supervisor, Chirag Alawadhi, and an email from HR delivered the news of a one-day leave as a gesture of compassion and solidarity in the midst of national disappointment the day after the loss.
“It was a shock that none of us could comprehend until the official email arrived.” “This one-day relaxation isn’t just a morale booster; it’s a chance to recover from the loss, regain mental stability, and return to work with renewed energy and spirit,” Gupta explained.
