February 12, 5:20 am:

I get up from my bed, and feel an urge to check my mail. I take my Sis’ Note and log in and come across another Indiblogger Meet. Right away, I open my laptop and get myself registered.

February 13-16 till 2:00 pm:

I go all excited with the Indiblogger Meet, draw up a plan to fool the boss and leave in half day without getting my pay deducted. Tweet tens of bloggers I met in previous meets about me being excited to meet them and that we will have fun. Thinking about getting my damaged hair cut or not so that I can have good pictures in the event (Note: I hate Hair-Cut, not that I enjoy long hair, but I hate going for a Hair-Cut, Pakta hai bohot 😥 )

February 16, 2:05 pm:

Confront boss with a puppy face and well recited excuse and get permission to leave. I run to the station with my constant dripping down low waist jeans (wrong decision and forgetting to wear bealt, lead to such embarrassing moments 😛 ). Reach Bandra Station, fight with a rickshawwallah and reach the venue.


Here I reach, Indiblogger meet by HP #ConnectedMusic

Where? – Otto Infinito (you can have the details about the venue from – – Btw, Its a place worth visiting once !!

When? – February 16, 2013 – 3:00-7:00 pm.

               I reached the venue with an air of excitement and a mood of exultance as the venue as well as weather was quiet pleasant. As soon as I entered, I saw everyone waiting outside the venue. However, drinks were served and everyone were finding their “I-Know-That-Person” with a glass in their hands and chatting away until the doors opened and we were invited in.

              We all were made to sit on different table and were given a White Paper where after initial opening speech which involved voice clearance warm up by the Deadlock Organiser Guy, we had to go and meet every blogger for minimum 30 seconds and get their scribbles and scraps on our paper. Before going, Giveaway of HP Earphones with MIC was given to all the girls who had worn Dupatta and the guys with cool headgear.

So, yes, we kicked off with a funny music being played where we had to meet all the bloggers. It was that time, where I happened to meet few really charming people:-

Vaibhavkumar Rai (@IMRaiSaheb) – Although I know him from before, but still acted as if I met him at the meet :D. One of the most amazing personality, I have ever seen.

Amrita Rana (@AmritaRana) – One of the biggest food-lover, I have come across. Although, I met her in Nokia Indiblogger Meet, but hadn’t spoken much that time. Today, finally did it.

Neha Sharma (@NehaSharmaHere) – Member of Young India Foundation and she came to me as one really sweet girl.

The Nameless One (@deoxy_adi) – Since the first meet I attended, and till today. This Guy has maintained his hair and beard so nicely. 😀

Shanaya Sinner (@Shanaya_Sinner) – La Femme élégante. She moved around with her DSLR capturing Indiblogger moments. I came to know later, that she is a DJ as well. *ooooooooohhh* 😀

Karishma Rawat (@KarishmaRawat) – The pretty lady of the meet.

Fatima and Aditi – Bubbly girls who always seem happy hopping in the meet.

Amit Pithadia (@amitspithadia) – This guy has got really great hobbies. Had heard of him before from Vaibhav and was really nice seeing him out there.

Blogwati G (@BlogwatiG) – The most popular blogger. Had fans everywhere :D.

Priya Adivarekar (@priyaadivarekar) – Had a very awkward conversation with her since I felt, I have seen her a lot of times. Nevertheless, I really want to learn from her on how to design a blog so well :O.

Nelton Dsouza (@NeltonDsouza) – The conductor of the choir (about which you will read in the latter part of the post).

Gargi Salgaonkar (@gargi22_9) – The fashion blogger and a twitter friend after first blogger’s meet- Met her finally :D.

Nirali Naik (@BluBluBling) – She told me about Tamarind Rice :O .. Visit:- for more details 😉

And after meeting many more of such bloggers for couple of seconds, we all came back to our place and I won HP Headphones with Mic for getting more than 40 scribbles. 😀 😀 😀 Woot Woot

Headphones that I won

Then we had this HP and Hungama guys coming around to explain us, what is this HP – ConnectedMusic. It was an hour full of amazement as it was really good. The sound was clear, the search was quicker and comprehensive.

Q. What is HP – Connected Music?

A. HP India along with an association with Hungama launches a ground breaking and seamless service that will give Indian consumers immense choice and access to global and regional digital music and content.

One sad part about this is, It works only on HP products and since I have Dell, I won’t be able to access it 😦

(for people who were not present at the meet – get yourself updated with one of the most innovative product by HP —  Connected Music)

Meanwhile three contests were also announced:

1) Tweet your favourite artist’s name and if that name is in the envelope, they stand to win a HP laptop :O.

2) Tweet about someone you met at the meet with a #BFF hashtag and the sweetest tweet stands to win a HP Laptop too. :O

3) Whoever comes out with the real meaning of Otto Infinito, stands a chance to have a free brunch at Otto Infinito next sunday. WOWWWWW :O :O

It was a real difficult session as your eyes were glued to the innovations displayed by HP Connected Music and your mind brainstorming on how can you win these contests.

 ———— After a gruelling session, we had a break for food. I wish, I had photos of the event. However, my camera sucks and I was too busy eating, tweeting and meeting that I forgot to ask my friend to click. 😐

Food for thought:- Amazing mouth watering red sauce and white sauce pastas and roasted paneer (it had a very difficult name, I couldn’t remember, I am sorry), Thin Crust Pizza, Mint and Pomegranate Lemonade, and few non veg stuffs which I did not bother knowing the name.

After food was served and everyone got back to their places, winners were announced for the contest and cheering happened. To mark the end of the event, a last game was announced where people had to make teams from the eight music themes given by them.

4 teams were formed – 13 13 13, Dumchik Dumchik Dumchik, Smack that booty and one in rock genre, I can’t recollect the name.

We had to make teams on our own with like minded people and had to sing a song.

It was really funny seeing 13 13 13 having half the people who attended the event in their team. I belonged to it, and had a choir where we sang Fevicol, Sheila and Munni. It was amazing fun.

We were followed by Dumchik, that Rock theme people and Smack that booty and had a loud cheer in the end.

It was really amazing that the organizers announced 1st runner up as well and dumchik dumchik won HP headphones. After which, to everyone’s amazement, they announced 13 13 13 as winners too and almost half the attendees won HP Headphones too. Long live the Organizers O:) :D.
