Jab We Meet!!

Since my last blog post, I had been keeping my pen busy writing a couple of poetry about the lost love, my pet area of writing about fiction, but since none of could be completed, no blog posts could be made. Par yeh mat sochna k yeh blogger fir se so gya. This time, its like toofan se pehle ki shanti. But shayad yeh shanti Indiblogger ko pasand nahi aayi and here, they come up with another blogger meet.

Another mail from Indiblogger, another meet notification and unlike last time, I had already got registered before the seats went full. Thanks to Shwetabh, who had tagged me @ fb about it. I was really excited to meet the friends I had made @ last meet and to have their feedback about the sleeping blogger's comeback post, which I had made after that meet. The excitement was visible more in the first timers' comments while they were registering themselves @ Indiblogger. Having gone through that curious-kinda feeling in the last meet, I could surely relate to them. I also reserved my day for the #FreshnHappy meet since it was supposed to be a wonderful break from everyday's monotonous-kinda routine.

Well, I reached the venue a little early, but was quite surprised to c such a large gathering. I just tried searching for some jane-pehchane chehre. But it was just Shwetabh, whom I could locate in that crowd. After a while, Karthik opened the flood gates to the hall, and all of us just rushed in to be the first movers. Shwetabh later told me, he was inspired by me to be the first mover, since it may turn out to be the Indiblogger's fb album's title photo.

In the rush of logging in, Arvind Bhai just called me up and the Zebra ka Debra effect was back. We occupied the centre table in front, so very habitual of being in the limelight. Sitting across and looking around, I hardly saw someone already known. Murtaza, Manjulika, Priyaa, Shaivi and Aishwarya Bhai, this completed my known ones' list.

The meet started with a BANG, a head-bang. Nihal came up with a crash course on head-banging. From beginners to expert in just five minutes, we had a good fun banging our heads.

Then came up the number game, just like last time, I could not get lucky getting a chance to give a number and take home some goodies. However, Anoop helped us clear all the bad air off our lungs by calling the hall to scream, since it would be the loudest scream who would get a chance. It was a good 1 minute screaming session and Shwetabh, who was just sitting in front of me, got his fingers on his ears and once I stopped, a request to me to scream a little less louder. Who cares!! ;)

30 seconds to fame, this time it had got a social touch. Every social blogger got a chance to introduce himself and the social blog. Just one word for the intros, concepts and stories of how it touched others' lives - Amazzzzinngg.. Felt proud to be a part of a responsible blogger community. :D

Then lunch time was announced, and before we could even get off the chairs, we saw a huge queue against the food tables, and this allowed us more time to chit-chat with the bloggers. It also gave me a chance to interact with Passey Sir, and well, that small interaction surely gave them an admirer. :)

Getting back to the hall after having lunch, it more of seemed like a marriage hall rather than a indiblogger meet, since most of the bloggers were still enjoying the food on the tables. A little later, as we settled, we were given a sample of Ambi Pur room freshners, a part-time fayda of attending the meets. No later were we made aware that even this was supposed to be an activity and based on the flavours of the fragrances, we were divided into groups. My Zebra ka Debra team was back again and coincidentally, we were into the same team. While the rules were announced, I was called on by Viral Fever team for some masti time off the field. Hardly, I had any clue k hone kya wala hai, but well, it was getting exciting. I was blindfolded and taken into a room. I was got involved into a conversation for about five minutes, wherein I was asked about some wonderful vacation, my experiences. I shared with them my vacation in Goa last winters with my friends.  After about 5 minutes, I was revealed the surprise and I had a beach-kinda feeling all around me, with some fish, prawns etc. lying on the table in front of me alongwith a guy sunbathing on the same sofa I was made to sit on. This was all being shot and I hardly had any idea what exactly they are going to do with that video. Indiblogger team, kindly throw some light.

Well, back into the action, I joined my team. Last time k zebra k debra were this time AmbiPandas. I was told that we are to make a Chinese Martial Arts movie and by the time I had joined them, the story had been finalized to a large extent. But the time allotted was ending with every passing second and before we could script a conclusive ending, the time got over. We kept discussing our idea while others were performing since we did take the task of directing a Chinese movie very seriously. But I don't know why no one could really understand our script (including us), since they were mostly Indians. I think I should share the script with you as well, so that Indiblogger team and other fellow attendees can at least understand our concept and appreciate the sheer talent we all displayed, but maybe a weak script (or a weak audience), it could not be communicated properly. Here's the script for our movie:

繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字繁字 繁体字全字简笔全体字

Note: If any of my other AmbiPanda happens to read the post, do reply in the comments.

After the activity ended, we were all made to give another try to clean off our lungs and scream our heart out. It was time for the meet to end, but not before another chhoti c pose-making activity. Activity may have been a small one, but the prize itself made it big - Nokia Lumia 720.

Ek aur meet, aur fir se no prizes. Mera number kab aayega? :-?

  1. Loved the idea of including a script in Chinese. By the way I did use Google translator and found you used "Traditional full English word every word all the words in simplified characters" for 18 times. Thank God, the English translation wasn't something inane or abusive! :)

    Meets are to meet people... why bring in prizes? Loved meeting you there. :)
