THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The capital’s IT hub is not a place where employees only follow a strict sign-in-sign-out routine and leave home when the office time ends. Over the years, techies have realised the need to stay organised to keep alive their social commitment and bring out the artistic and sports talents innate in them.

Their evenings are meant for more live action, be it from their in-house talents or from the cultural sphere. And when anything affects their life or locale, we see them showing  their ‘responsible citizen’ face.

‘Natana’ is a cultural organisation formed in 2011 for giving a fillip to culture, music, film, dance and other forms of art. It has been staying vibrant through different programmes, ranging from workshops, film screenings, shows by eminent artists to conducting exhibitions.  Whereas, ‘Prathidhwani’ functions with a three-pronged strategy, intending to make contributions to cultural, technical and social aspects. A non-profit voluntary organisation, its members are ready to voice their opinion and launch result-oriented efforts to make changes happen. One of their members is part of the Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee. The most recent initiative to join the fold is Sportz4u, which in the past couple of years spread its wings in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Bengaluru. It is bringing a new dimension to the importance of physical workout.
