Date & Time : 21st September,2008 at 4.00pm
Venue : In Kolkata's (first time ever :D) Heera International Inn
Agenda : Indi Bloggers Meet and related stuff.... :P
It kicked off with the Indiblogger team and Archit (the big fat guy :P who took the initiative of making this event a success) giving out a introductory speech...which was followed by Sandhaya the gal from Microsoft who briefed us on why Microsoft has tied up with Indiblogger and the all the rest of the techincal and professional inputs. Then came up the '1 minute fame' wherein all the bloggers present had to introduce him/her self and say why the blog,for how are they into the trade of playing with words and lemme tell this was more than 1 minute fame...each one took over 10minutes to say rather glorify about him or herself (read as blog :p)..it was indeed fun coming across such innovative and interesting bunch of people under one roof....and then as the day progressed and interactions flowed on...I forgot to mention there was a session of "how well do u know the blogger" where the Indiblogger selected few blogspots and some posts and some comments from a particular post of that chosen blogger and whether you identify or not that its your blog or not u gotta do the 'blogger jig' and Iam very happy to announce that my name came and I did the perform the jig :P and the comment which was read out was of my dear frnd Monz (famously known as our very own Busy writer) :). To go on further, it gives me great happiness to say out to u all that I did manage to make quite a number of good friends and I have been in contacts with them as well..guys do keep in touch and finally as the dinner took time to settle our gruelling stomach...the Ethical codes and regulations of Blogging's discussion round succeeded in combating hunger...and after much of an eager wait, the dinner was served...with few more quick and last notes and spices of conversations........and atlast it did come to an end..but I would say this was not the end but a beginning....till now we all knew music binds everything...I would say even Words do :) and with this note...wishing all of you "A VERY VERY PUJAS AND DIWALI"........and so long as it is hence it is...Iam really proud that even though I scribble and write on random stuff Iam able to connect and relate to so many people and friends all over..............looking forward more such 'WORD'ly meets... :)
