"Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living?" - Mahatma Gandhi The thought behind this quote was echoed by Mr. Bimal Patwari, CEO of Pinnacle Infotech, as he kickstarted Pinnacle’s Independence Day celebrations by hoisting the tricolor in front of the admin building. The event was marked with stellar musical performances by the residential children. Mr. Patwari then delivered the Independence Day speech to the gathering where he stressed the role Pinnacle can play in India’s progress through its CSR initiatives and business performance. Both the performances and the speech were well received by the gathering, indicated by the loud cheers and applause. The patriotic fervor was apparent from the large gathering (despite the looming threat of rain) with all COVID-19 safety precautions in place. The day ended with a pledge from all Pinnacalites to contribute to the wellbeing of the communities they live in and work, so that we as a nation can effortlessly tide over these challenging times.
