Ayudha Puja, also called Astra Pooja, is a part of the Navratri festival. In simple terms, it means “Worship of Instruments”. It is widely celebrated in southern India.
In the cross-cultural development that has revolutionized the society, with modern science making a lasting impact on the scientific knowledge and industrial base in India, the ethos of the old religious order is retained by the worship of computers and typewriters also during the Ayudha Puja, in the same manner as practiced in the past for weapons of warfare.
Thus, in line with this ethos, our Bangalore office conducted Ayudha Pooja on 7th October 2019 to worship all our tools and resources without which, performing our daily activities can be a huge challenge.
