If you find this post much like a newspaper report! (No issues! :-D)
Just when I was doubtful over my hiatus from blogging turning permanent, the Indibloggers Berger Express Kolkata Meetup just provided the much needed boost to hit the keys again.
The evening was auroral for many bloggers (me included) as it opened up a peerless networking avenue for the community in Kolkata. It was a melloflous evening of many hues, starting with the registration to the management, everything was just Thumps Up. I was twitterfated sans inhibitions as this was my 2nd Indibloggers meet after Bangalore meetup in 2k13.
Every single moment of the event was one to live for, to begin with the 30 secs of fame, wherein some of the blogging stories were undubitably inspiring. The protean mix of bloggers from all walks of life with their own bags of wonderful tales – A mother inspired by her son into blogging, 16 yr old guy using blogging as a tool to crack wide open his voice et al. As with the phrase, A picture speaks a thousand words, the Pics from the twitter contest stood testimony to it. It really urged me to festinate here so that I can catch up the space I had missed up all the while.
The video on Berger Express Painting, which seemed unsually lengthy at the begining however stood reminiscence of the horrendous round of activities that followed back home whenever my home needed a fresh coat of paint. Berger Express is a truly efficacious tool which makes your painting – Faster,Cleaner & Better!! much in reality as the tagline promises.
High Tea followed the presentations with many known faces & some new friends as well as a few bloggers from past meet-ups. The bonding was so warm, & it was aided by the delicious mouth watering kebabs being served. I am just repeating my tweet here : The kebabs were really delicious!! Really 😛
The team activities were commoving to the core , all the bloggers formed teams of 6 amongst themselves,we named our team as FLASH (Logic lies with the fellow bloggers in the team :-P). The first activity was sanding a board using sand-papers & we were donning safety gears which made us look like doctors in the Operation room getting ready to rip the bellies apart 😛 This was followed by the painting event where the task was to paint a theme or an issue using the colors provided. My pathetic artisitic skills coupled with a few others from my team didn’t fetch us any prize, but the fun nevertheless was priceless. The 16yr old guy explained his painting in a really theatrical manner with hindi slogans & extemporized overtones!! (Smart Guy!). By this time, we had drained all our energies, and the belly needed a refill.
Finally, it was Pet-Puja time (not pet animals folks!!). I made sure that my plate was filled with every other deliciacy my eyes wandered to and my taste-buds just got me driving for refills. The desert was sans pareil and the malpuas were to die for!!
Thus ended the day on a happy note with many new friends made, learning ascribed in mind, the next big thing in painting experienced in close quarters, a belly filled to the brim (:-P), and a lot of other emotions along with a goody bag from BergerXP.
Thanks Indiblogger & Berger Express for the wonderful evening!!
The quiddity of the meet-up for me was the fact that much like BergerXP , our blogs should essentially be more Faster (As in shedding out the laziness!), Cleaner (To the point & laconic!) & Better (Always keeping up the experience of readers to the optimum whilst not compromising on the content!
Not a gud speech, but thanks for the awesome pic 😛
The warm-up activity was warm indeed!
Ready to operate!
