Amidst the chaos of job vacancies, promotions and bank statements, an Indiblogger mail is a pleasant sight for sore eyes (and my inbox). This one in particular involved going to Colaba (aka the land of shopping) to check out the UniverCell showroom. That’s pretty much all I knew about the place until I got there. But I was in for a ‘Tech-sperience’ as they call it. Now whether that ‘Tech-sperience’ was good, bad or ugly, you’ll find out soon enough! Continue reading →
To say that the Xtreme Indiblogger meet lived up to its name and was (e)Xtreme, would be an understatement. It would by a long-shot be one of the coolest experiences one could’ve ever witnessed.
I was told that this meet is going to be very different from the ones that usually happen, and boy was it different!
Started off with a few prizes:
While we waited for the rest of the bloggers to show up, we were asked to select a random number out of 10, each number had a special gift behind it, with a task that seemed so simple we all failed to keep track of the numbers picked and the last three digits had everyone floundering.
I, who never really got a chance in any of the interactions in any of the meets I attended, was picked 4th at random to pick a number. With the number I had in mind already been taken, I picked the next random number I could think of, the one and only (Yes, 1).
‘What could go wrong with number one?’ I thought.
Well nothing says number one like the number one, I rued my choice seeing what I won. Continue reading →
The Great Charlie Chaplin had once said , “I love to walk in the rain, because no one can see me cry“,and now every 2nd person quotes it at the time of heartbreak, nosebleed or even during a random cry for attention. The thought sounds thoughtful, no? but is it really applicable , I don’t think so, like no one would notice the red-eyes, runny nose and/or the add-shaped face(yes, crying does that to people). Peeing in your pants make more sense than crying in the rain, if you ask me, not that I’ve tried or that I’m encouraging it, but it does, think about it!
What about the reduction in vision due to the tears in the eyes, which has already been reduced by the rainfall around you? (remember?) This attempt of not showing your tears is more of a stunt(other than publicity), in fact, especially for someone residing in Mumbai or anywhere else in the country for that matter, don’t be surprised if you see individuals walk in the rain with glycerin in their eyes on a decorated Mumbai road, to win maybe a motorbike or a pot of gold, perhaps the next task in a reality show? Only this time no harness would be able protect them from the average Mumbaikar’s road rage. Who knew hiding your tears could get you injured, maybe then the saying will change to, ‘I loved walking in the rain, now I’d love just to walk’, long story short, it’s just ridiculous how someone would use an innocent statement to such an extent that it would turn into more of an attention hogging statement, just to prove to the society that they are depressed and don’t want any attention
(if they didn’t want any, they wouldn’t even mention it in the first place!)
