L&T bends it like Beckham The Motera stadium near Ahmedabad, Gujarat
is touted to be the biggest cricket stadium in the
at Al Rayyan for FIFA 2022 world with international standards comparable to
the Melbourne Cricket Stadium in Australia. With
the demolition work of the old stadium complete,
the biggest L&T has won the toss to construct this marvel in
cricket the making! The stadium will have an enhanced

stadium in seating capacity of 1,10,000, and associated


top-class facilities like eateries, fan-zones and
the world washrooms. The stadium is slated for completion
by next year.

With our JV partner in Qatar, Al Balagh Trading & Contracting, we are


constructing the Al Rayyan Stadium at Doha, which will host the FIFA 2022
World Cup matches until the quarterfinals.

Reflecting Qatari culture and heritage and inspired by the Bedouin tents,
the Al Rayyan stadium and its precinct design will resemble the sand
dunes that surround these traditional desert encampments. With a seating
capacity of 40,000, fans from across the world no longer need to settle just
for the screen. This landmark stadium is expected to be completed two
years ahead of the big event.

that does the rounds! Here are some campus trivia you might want
to know!
While most people prefer to sleep in on weekends, the cycling
enthusiasts of L&T are early birds who prefer to catch the
worm on the road. This adventurous spirit is what enables
L&T-ites to chart out new territories and race against time.
The cycling squad is just one among many such recreational
groups at L&T.

Apart from doing their bit to reduce the carbon footprint,


members of this club encourage curious onlookers to grab

dedication has resulted in covering distances even up to
160km at a stretch! Whats more, all this biking works up a
ravenous appetite that is satiated by grabbing some piping
hot grub on route!

As with any physical activity, cycling has its own share of ups
and downs-but the crew looks forward to GETs like you who
are young and full of zest to brave rain, shine, wind or storm.

From green thumbs to
green hands We for
Women
In the last 5 years, with the support of our green
volunteers, more than 1,50,000 saplings have been
nurtured and planted in various public places such
as schools colleges, hospitals and local townships
through Project GreenHands. Come March, L&T-ites are bitten by the excitement bug to usher in International
Womens Day, with celebrations beginning a week in advance, culminating in a grand
finale. The festivities include a variety of fun events and games, ranging from ramp
walks to talk shows to quizzes and workshops. And men are certainly not excluded -
they indulge in exciting cooking duels donning the toque blanche, adding their unique
flavors to the revelry.

The theme for 2017 was #BeBoldforChange, instilling confidence in all the lovely
ladies out there to be unapologetic about their dreams and aspirations. The event was
a raging success as participation went through the roof. Despite their multifarious
responsibilities, women employees across ages spent many a diligent hour gearing up
for their shows-songs, dances, you name it and theyve done them all.

The spectacular grand finale was replete with inspirational speeches, glitzy
performances and a sumptuous high tea. Well, the bar for next years celebrations has
certainly been set high!

Take all you can eat, but eat all you take!
Food lovers, heres your cue. Browse through a variety of options-be it
North Indian, South Indian, Chinese or Continental, theres something for
everyones palate. If you are one to watch your weight, we have a dedicated
eat-out for those who count each calorie. So, choose your pick and eat your
fill, but make sure you eat every last bit!
