Prayers in the Pandemic
Prayers in the Pandemic
USHERING in the festival season in many parts of India, Dussehra took on a special meaning this year. For the world is battling a single enemy, and vanquishing this deadly foe is topmost on every mind. 
At L&T’s many establishments around India, Dussehra and its many regional avatars were celebrated in a somewhat muted fashion, necessitated by the constraints of the pandemic. Numbers at poojas were restricted, and social distancing was astutely maintained. The focus was on seeking the blessings of the Divine, and on staying safe.
As the entire L&T community lifted up a fervent prayer for better days, the company continues to resume operations in vital areas. Here’s a snapshot of the celebrations from L&T campuses.
