Indiblogger Bangalore meet 2017: Curtain raiser- Valley of Words

“Life is all about having a good time.”
― Miley Cyrus

The BNLF fever is at its peak and the Indiblogger community is going bonkers over the biggest blogger’s meet, which is scheduled for November. Last Sunday (20.08.2017), Bangalore bloggers got a chance to experience and be a part of the interactive session organized by Indi Blogger at Hilton Bangalore Embassy Golflinks. The event/ meet was organized in collaboration with StoryMirror and Valley of Words.

Our host for the evening was Mr. Anoop, who knew it pretty well how to grab the attention of the audience. The program began with a quick round of Musical chairs (well, not exactly), followed by 60 seconds of fame. Many bloggers and published authors introduced themselves. It was an enriching session; it was, indeed, a good chance to get to know people.

The second session was taken over by Mr. Bibhu, founder of StoryMirror, who shared with us the inception of the concept of StoryMirror. He even discussed his book ‘Wheels of Wish’. This was followed by book launch by the published authors of StoryMirror- Ms. Ganga Bharani, Mr. Sulaiman, and Ms. Kavipriya.

The third session was a talk-session by the authors who shared their experience working with StoryMirror. Indiblogger was generous enough to call upon all the published Indi bloggers on stage and acknowledge them. Immediately after this, we were asked to break for high Tea.
The second session of the workshop included book launch of Hindi translation of ‘Songs of the Mist by Shashi’ and the curtain raiser for ‘Valley of Words’. Mr. Shashi discussed the plot, the time and the little tricks that he employed to write the amazing story.

Next agenda for the day was to reveal the concept of ‘Valley of Words’. Mr. Sanjeev Chopra was the speaker for the day. He revealed the schedule and the guests for Valley of Words. This was followed by an interactive session with Mr. Pankaj Dubey, who has authored ‘What a loser!’ and ‘Ishqyapa’.

Overall, this meet was an enriching experience for all of us. Not only did we get a chance to meet new people but also got the opportunity to introduce ourselves and our blog. The meet concluded with a Mexican song and an amazing group photograph.

Eagerly waiting for the next meet in Bangalore, I sign off.
