Hyderabad Indi Bloggers Meet - Fireworks in a coffeehouse.





As the thick monsoon clouds gathered and the distant sounds of drumroll began, Hyderabad bloggers came together for a meet organized and announced by IndiBlogger.






Starring a diverse and colorful bunch of characters, it was quite an experience to be among such people.  It was very interesting to see and meet the bloggers in person as each of the blogger brought something different to the table be it gardening, organic farming, value living, cool tech tips, publishing, gaming and life in general.






Ideas were tossed around and fine-tuned until it coalesced into a definite shape.  It was heart-warming to see bloggers from different cities and backgrounds coming together.  Although the event was labeled as Hyderabad bloggers meet, we had people representing Chennai, Kolkata and Lucknow.  I do feel sad for the people who missed this wonderful meet.  I do hope that this small spark of enthusiasm will start something significant and relevant in the coming months and years.





After a hilarious confusion at the end while the paying the bill and how blogging and math do not go hand in hand, we left the coffee lounge with our minds stimulated.  While I was riding to home in the pouring rain, I still could feel the good vibrations generated by this meet and was reminded of this quote.




                        In our personal ambitions we are individualists, but in our seeking for economic and political progress as a nation, we all go up or else all go down as one people.
                                                                                                            --Franklin D. Roosevelt




Here's another account of how the bloggers meet went.

    1. @D. Nambiar. I'm hoping there will be a blogger's meet where all the bloggers irrespective of cities come together. Just to know a person by his writing alone can be an interesting an enriching experience. Btw, that first pic was taken near my home where palm trees grow, I had just the right amount of light to create that dramatic effect.
