When a company starts growing over time and not worrying about obstacles that will come, only those companies can set the benchmark for themselves.
“With the right culture, people, and principles, you can achieve amazing things.”
May the next year be prosperous as well, but first, let us celebrate this special day. SETUBRIDGE TECHNOLABS celebrated its 10th Anniversary, and to be honest, the journey has been exciting, challenging, and memorable.
Despite the ups and downs, Setubridge Technolabs has stood like a statue and they never stopped delivering top-notch services to their clients, which has resulted in us being ten years old now. A dream that only a few have exceeded.
We like to convey our sincere gratitude to all our coworkers, clients, and collaborators for their ongoing support and contributions in this time of joyful emotions and the broadest, biggest smile.
All we can say, without your support, this achievement would never have been possible. We are saying this to our fellow mates. Guys, we are 10 years old now. We all deserve a pat on the back as we were part of this while achieving this milestone. So, let me tell you in brief how we celebrated this grand occasion.
The moment we entered the office, we were welcomed with an eye-catchy handwritten anniversary card on the desk and some nice and energetic music. Thanks to our events team.
The feeling was exceptional, and as everyone settled down, we desperately waited for the event to begin.
What lovely gestures have been received? Every team member gave a standing ovation at the moment. Our leader, Mr. Sagar Panchal, entered the office, along with the welcome song.
What a precious moment for all of us. I think we all deserve a token of appreciation as we have made it here.
- The Message of Appreciation from the Anchors
Our anchors, Krishna and Rutvi, were all set to begin the program, along with the prettiest smile. The activities were about to start and they were welcoming all their fellow mates. And, they started the event by delivering the welcome speech, and they have indeed started well.
I am still hearing the noise of the claps because of the way they delivered the welcome speech.
However, it was a nice gesture from them
- Lamp Lighting
Light is a sign of brightness and prosperity since sunshine dispels the darkness of power, and blessings bring prosperity and pleasure into our lives.
Once the welcome speech gets over, it’s time for Lamp Lightning. We were all going to witness our traditional lamp lighting ceremony, and what better way to start than this by lighting the lamp by the CEO of the company, Mr Sagar Panchal.

So, the moment has finally come that we have been waiting for. A modest expression of thanks from everyone at Setubridge – I still get butterflies thinking about it.
So now, the director of the company, “Mr Sagar Panchal,” holds essential parts of the organization and makes intelligent choices. Sir has shared his initial days of struggle and, to be honest, that was a real-life experience for the person who has lived those 10 years and seen ups and downs and is currently standing in front of people and addressing them.
The voyage was tough, but he handled it admirably. All of his inspirations and objectives can be heard and seen in his eyes. A well-crafted speech was delivered by a well-organized gentleman!
Finally, while ending, he once again congratulated everyone, and the entire office gave a round of applause.
- Cake Cutting Ceremony
We saw a nicely decorated large size cake waiting for our arrival, and we were invited to cut the cake together. The moment of joy can be seen on everybody’s face, and eyes are filled with those breathtaking moments that can be stored in our memory lane.
Right after the cake-cutting session, one by one, the teams clicked photos with the director. After that, we entered the stage, and we started dancing without much worry from others.
Finally, we went out to eat. Our delicious delights were awaiting a compliment from our taste buds. It was a genuine and well-organized dinner buffet for everyone. We ate our fill of dinner and finally left the venue at 10:30 p.m. to return home.
You know, any organization that completes 10 years is itself a statement and is proud of itself. And to appreciate it on a large scale, you need a grand celebration like this. A well-spent evening with all my colleagues.
All we could say is that it was more extravagant and spectacular. On behalf of the entire Setubridge Technolabs management, we appreciate their efforts and hope for good fortune.
