A Splendid Weekend


Even while writing for this post, a big smile is lingering on my lipstiny-smileys-yesemoticons-012. This weekend indeed proved to me as a splendid and awesome weekend with tons of memories to cherish for a lifetime. First of all, It was  my darling mother’s birthday on Sundaytiny-smileys-yesemoticons-072, but we celebrated it a day earlier because I had to attend a conference on Sunday. I had a very good time Mom, thank you so muchtiny-smileys-yesemoticons-131 . It was truly an awesome birthday celebration and we enjoyed a lot. Truly, you rock.

Next day was Sunday,the day for which I have waited for a long time. Blogadda.com had organized a conference WIN2014 where bloggers, speakers, writers were invited. It was a day full of conversations, learning, interactions, fun and the joy of winning. Initially I felt my luck was not playing on my side as suddenly in middle of the Saturday night, my health went badtiny-smileys-yesemoticons-003. Though I was feeling sleepy, but the sudden sickness was making difficult for me to sleep. Morning at five, I had a medicine and thought of grabbing some sleep for two hours. I wished to God, my silent prayer that the medicine works, so that I don’t miss the conference. After waking up, I was feeling better, but was not completely well.  Finally, I just decided that I would go to this conference and got ready.

As I reached the venue –Courtyard Marriott Hotel, I was greeted by Namaste (joining both the hand gesture), an Indian way of welcoming guests,by the hotel staff. They escorted me and my fellow guest to the Conference room where the event was going on. After checking my name in the list, the Blogadda member asked me to describe what Blogging means to me in a word and write it down with my signature below. Then the photographer clicked our photo. Truly would say I felt as if I am a star already:-P. Haha. The conference was hosted by witty and fun loving Mr. Ashwin Mushran, who really made the conference lively by his witty remarks tiny-smileys-yesemoticons-006 . Later, various speakers, writers like Ravi Subramanium, Kavi Arasu, Anaggh Desai, Kiran Manral, and many others spoke and shared their blogging stories, how from blogging they thought of writing a novel and a few even got published. The legendary Shekhar Kapur and vocalist  Vasundhara Das were also present at the conference and made audience go Wow by their speech and answers.Truly I loved hearing three people more Kavi Arasu , Anaggh Desai and the Q&A section answered by Mr.Shekhar Kapur. Even there was an award section where many bloggers  were felicitated for their best blog.

To me, this conference was worth attendingtiny-smileys-yesemoticons-024. Hearing to Legendary Producer/Actor /Director Mr. Shekhar Kapur was a marvelous experience tiny-smileys-yesemoticons-032. Indeed , I got  to learn a lot and inspired  from this great people, interacted with many bloggers, enjoyed the food,great hospitality by the hotel staff who were indeed very courteous and warm welcoming. Thanks to God and yes obvious Blogadda , I had an awesome experience and every moment will be cherished forevertiny-smileys-yesemoticons-032Image.
