On the 12th of January, the eve of the Pongal festival, a Rangoli competition was organised at the William Hare India offices.

Rangoli is an artform in India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as coloured rice, dry flour, coloured sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali (Deepawali), Onam, Pongal and other Indian festivals. Designs are passed from one generation to the next, keeping both the art form and the tradition alive.

The purpose of Rangoli is decoration, and it is thought to bring good luck. William Hare India employees made Rangolis and the best three were awarded prizes. Staff were also encouraged to dress in traditional ethnic clothes to celebrate the festival. 10 teams participated in the competition and 3 teams were awarded prizes for their designs.
