Sunday evening in Delhi was well spent with bloggers who have been read for a long time now. Shivam who was the host came rather late, but we forgave him as he organized it in the first place. Monica and I found some time to chat up before Jai made it. Dhiraj showed up, and showed off a brand-new tattoo on his neck. (Btw, I don’t know what the tattoo was meant to be!) Evidence of a Holi played with great enthusiasm and semi-permanent colour was obvious.
River and I ended up taking quite a few photographs. Prakriti looked at the two of us with great amusement. He also explained the concept of “living with an interesting name”. Conversation was free-flowing. From heavyweight blogging, overbloggers, weather changes, dead blogs (like DesiMediaBitch), Delhi, Delhi University politics, news channels, mangoes, litchis, freelanching, ruins, new bloggers, Global Voices, various pundits etc. were discussed. Much chocolate and coffee was consumed. It was also decided that Shivam bears a striking resemblance to Dilbert. I would have posted photographs of the bloggers, but am never sure of how comfortable people are with their photographs being posted online. However, what you see here are the remains of the day. Many thanks to Costa Coffee for not kicking us out despite the noise and cheat orders (when you linger over your drink for hours just to stay at the table!).
Had a wonderful time! So long, and thanks for all the iced tea!
