I watch a comedy show on the weekends on the idiot box.I was looking forward to the grand finale on the evening of 19th August.IndiBlogger
had organised a meet -
at Taj Land's end ,Bandra
that very evening.I was in two minds - to attend or miss.My kid was insisting that we attend.So we went & well ,I enjoyed it because the sparkling wit & humour more than made up for the Grand finale which I missed ! It was a bonus !
The setting was five star ,all thanks to IndiBlogger team & Nokia
& obviously Taj Land's end ,in the queen of suburbs,Bandra,Mumbai ! The hosts ,tech analyst Rajiv Makhni
& Michelin Starred Celebrity Chef Vikas Khanna
were so perfect & down to earth that we all ,bloggers felt completely overwhelmed !
The warmth of the hosts,the superb ambience ,the presenters -all in all, a Scintillating event ! We all laughed so much that we were stress free for those many hours !
The onion cutting technique - a French one introduced by Vikas Khanna was really simple .It made me wonder, why didn't we think of it before ! Rajiv Makhni simplified the apps for those all who were not so tech savvy like yours truly !
The quiz round revealed some interesting bits of information.The onion halwa made at Khajuraho ,the temple town.Now, we know why the sculptures in Khajuraho are erotic -the scupltors devoured onion halwa as they sculpted away.Nokia is the biggest manufacturer of digital cameras -all included in their fabulous mobile phones ! Rasam is undoubtedly the national soup of India, as revealed by Chef Vikas Khanna.As the quiz ended,we were all jealous of the winners as they won Nokia lumia phones ! We all felt that we as audience deserved them more than the winners !
To indulge the audience ,Nokia
vide its Director,Communications, Poonam Kaul
announced this contest wherein we could blog about the event of the evening & win Nokia Pure View
if declared the best & Nokia Lumia
for the follow ons at second & third positions !
IndiBlogger celebrated its fifth anniversary
at the event & it showed that IndiBlogger has been able to garner the best of the worlds ! May IndiBlogger
thrive & rise further up to reach the skies & beyond ! Happy B'day ,IndiBlogger
-the meet was a worthy b'day bash !Well ,this snap of me & my daughter flanked by Vikas Khanna & Rajiv Makhni is just to recall that we were indeed present at the fabulous event !
So ,I decided to blog about it through this post .My blog post cannot truly reflect the chuckles we had as we participated by being there clapping ,looking ,cooking ,chopping,seeing & believing that we were indeed there !
Before I close,I would like to state that wine overflowed though we were too drunk on the wit & humour of the event to even take a sip of the wines !
Thank you IndiBlogger,Nokia & Tech Guru Rajiv Makhni & Master Chef Vikas Khanna for making this meet, the most memorable ever !
