Brigade Culture Club
At Brigade, we start every morning with a prayer from Gitanjali - a collection of poems by the inspiring Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore.
A morning prayer is a wonderful way to focus your time and attention on seeking the blessings of the Almighty in planning for the day ahead. Whether you need peace, strength or energy, the Almighty can provide you with the much-needed encouragement every day. We start all our events with this prayer, and end with the National Anthem.
We live in a stressful world. We wanted all employees to start the day with a calm mind and hence started this initiative of the morning prayer way back in 2009 as part of our change management. Since most staff gather for the morning prayer, we use the occasion to announce the birthdays and anniversaries of colleagues. We also announce important information like awards received, employee referrals and welcome new joinees, we call NEO Bs.”

A common prayer works for everybody and hence we selected this prayer by Rabindranath Tagore. This is unique to our organisation and it brings in a positive vibration and is in line with our philosophy of Building Positive Experiences. We start all our sessions with this prayer, and it is recited across all our offices.

Gandhi’s thoughts on a prayer
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
