It all started with the mail which was sent to me and Cheth regarding the event by the Indiblogger team. (This event was for approved IndiBloggers).
Things we considered before attending :
1. ITC Royal Gardenia- a posh location
2. Free Rich food!! – Mouth watering
3. Free Cocktails and Mocktails.
4. Host 1: Rajiv Makhni - Popular TV anchor, one of India’s leading technology analysts, gadget guru!
5. Host 2:Vikas Khanna – New York based, Michelin Starred, Celebrity Chef!
6. And most importantly free Goodies!
7. An Nokia India & Indiblogger event
So I will keep this review simple and to the point.. It all started around 5pm Saturday riding through the streets of bangalore who are all gearing up for the Diwali.
While we were waiting for registration, we were all welcomed with soft drinks and yummy starters.This made our stomach feel good and was pre planned of much more yummy stuffs to come. Cheth already started taking pics (Crazy photography)
Registration counter was open. Like how we use to do in colleges, we occupied the back table. But that’s the mistake we did. I will tell you later about the why part. We were all waiting for the event to start, In the mean while we started tweeting/retweeting with the event hashtag because it was all visible on the big screen. There were many funny tweets though.

It was all fun when the event began. With exercises, hugs and lot more.. All we could see were smiles around. Cheers to Indiblogger for conducting such an event which makes us feel that we know Indiblogger from ages.
And then a sudden appearance of Vikas and Rajiv made the evening look more awesome.Vikas stealing the show with his cute smile and his clean and clear Udupi Krisna matt Shloka in Kannada made us wonder like “what was this guy smokin”?

Of course it was all Rajiv, being a hilarious host teasing Vikas every time. He made Vikas dance, ramp walk and then they both did Gagnam style dance with the team.
In the mean time, I had some taste of red wine and white wine, Thanks to Vikas who said white wine goes better with fried chicken. And it actually worked you know!!

Then it was all tasting some of Nokia’s innovative windows applications. One after the other Rajeev was presenting it in his usual techie way. With the windows phone 8 emerging, Nokia has a fair game to play against the rival Andriod and iOS.
Then followed questions to bloggers on why do they blog and these are some of the reactions.
- Making girlfriends, he claimed he got 4 girlfriends and married his wife through blogging and she was the 5th one. Beat that!!..
- Blogging for his small village so that he can spread developments of his village to the outer world
- Blogging for a better India
and I remember cheth telling he got fed up of engineering , wanted to try some so he started chethstudios.net Guess what!! he won a prize for that cool answer Nokia Universal charger .

And many more. I hardly remember- perhaps the wine was too much
And prizes were from Nokia accessories to the High end nokia Lumia phonies. And we are in the last table couldn’t actually grasp this opportunity. This was the ultimate mistake.
Then it was all fun events till around 9.30pm. we got our free Indiblogger tshirts. Met Vikas and Rajeev.spoke about Random things. Both were really very friendly.and then we packed up for some exotic lunch and desserts.

Looking for more events from the Indiblogger in Bangalore.
