Want to write about Bangalore?

It’s the new year and also the time when we look out for some new folks to join the Bangalore Metblogs team. Fresh perspective is always welcome on the blog and I think it’s important that we get on board a few new writers who brings along his or her own point of view. Keeps this place more interesting, exciting and dynamic!

To join the team, you need to be:
– Passionate about Bangalore
– Passionate about writing and preferably have a blog so we can get an idea of whether you’re upto the job :)

The Metblogs team has a few core members who have stuck on through the last couple of years and a few members who’ve come in and out. Most of the team know each other and make it a point to have meets once in a while over coffee and dosa to keep the flag flying high! If you’re looking for a great paying job, this is obviously not it! But if you’re looking to join a dynamic and engaging bunch of Bangalore citizens, to discuss issues ranging from infrastructure to environment, and from theatre to tradition, do join in!

If you’d like to join the gang, please contact me on anitabora at yahoo dot com.

Being familiar with Midday using Metblog photo’s now it’s another daily trying to get their hands on the snaps (protected by creative commons). Not a good gesture from print media for sure!!

Bangalore Barcamp 3 – Event in Bangalore

Bangalore Barcamp 3 : Barcamp is an adhoc gathering, an open event for people to meet up, share, exchange ideas and possibilities.

Learning to Live, Living to Learn…

Sometimes when I capture few pictures while on the move, these frames then start telling me stories. Stories about realities of life, opportunities and struggle…

A unique window of my third eye, the digi-cam, with which I could see the world at my leisure and try understand looking at the situations with my mind opening up few subtle paradigms.
