Boss's Day becomes part of Diwali festivities in multi-national companies this year
This year, the five-day Diwali festival had a Western mix on October 16 when Boss's Day was celebrated in offices of multi-national companies (MNCs) in Jaipur.

"It was good, I combined the Boss's Day and Diwali gifts and wished my boss twin happy festivities," said an office goer who lives in the neighborhood and jokingly added that for him his boss was Goddess Lakshami to be adored on this day.

In the Western world and in MNCs, the Boss's Day was celebrated on October 16. Traditionally, on this occasion, employees thank and express gratitude to their bosses for being a mentor, kind, nice, supportive and fair to them along with strengthening the mutual bond.

In fact, Boss's Day provides an opportunity to improve bonding between employers and their staff as well as accord respect to those in supervisory positions by organizing various social events. The observance began in the United States in 1958 but now is being observed in many countries.

Often employees give their bosses good wish cards, sing praises for them or send flowers on Boss's Day. These days, in the private sector, the observance is becoming increasingly despite some controversy.

Here are a few mixed quotes picked up by me on the occasion of Boss's Day this year.

·         A good boss makes his men realize they have more ability than they think they have so that they consistently do better work than they thought they could. - Charles Erwin WilsonBeing a leader is making the people you love hate you a little more each day. – Patrick Ness

·         Remember the difference between a boss and a leader; a boss says 'Go!' - A leader says 'Let's go!' – EM Kelly

·         When the boss is away, work becomes a holiday. – Portuguese proverb
