Technopark CEOs, staff make merry in 'Daan Utsav' events

CEOs of Technopark-based companies willingly offered themselves as soft targets for slightly harsh but fun-filled pranks at the hands of own staff as part of Daan Utsav, a festival for charity. CEO-bashing was the major attraction of the day with employee ‘purchasing’ the right for ₹100 to ₹1,000 to target their bosses with a water-soaked sponge ball. KG Girish Babu, CEO of Technopark and host of the festival, volunteered to be the target for the first round of sponge-ball throws. CEOs of other companies would take aim at him; none of his own staff would! In the end, he took the maximum number of throws. Some of the thrower-CEOs who revelled at it paid even higher prices for the privilege to aim at the CEO of CEOs!
