Bangalore Metbloggers Meet

We had a small metbloggers authors/readers meet today at Infinitea on Cunningham Road. Initially, there were four of us, but another two people joined in.

But all in all, it was good to catch up with all the Metblogs authors, one ex-author and now reader and another prospective author! One reader made a guest appearance and had to rush of after as he had something else to do.

From l-r: Usha, Thejesh, Prabhu, Ravi & Rajesh – enjoying our tea and food!

Everyone was nice and early and reached the venue by 12.30 pm. I was a little delayed and reached about 1/2 hour later. Meanwhile the group had already warmed up and were chatting over tea and sandwiches that were ordered.

The folks present:
– Usha
– Ravi
– Prabhu
– Me
– Thejesh
– Rajesh & Preeti
– Divesh (guest appearance!)

Rajesh, we found, runs an interesting site where he posts a photo a day related to Bangalore. And not only that, he also adds some interesting tidbits to make the post more informative. Quite a laudable effort as he has been going on for a few months now. Hopefully, he will be coming on board Metblogs to share his perspective on Bangalore.

Anyone else who wants to write can contact me directly -, the details are in an earlier post.

It was a good catch-up session for the authors and we should definitely do this once in a while. We’ve met twice before this and it’s always nice to know the others face-to-face. Bbesides of course it provides the opportunity to get to know a diverse group of people, which is always a pleasure!

We are hoping to meet again on the 16th and hopefully have more folks join in. Till the next BMB meet!

We met at Infinitea on Cunningham Road, a rather cosy café, which has also been reviewed on Metblogs earlier!

    Now that we have been doing meetings… how about a group picnic? We can go and do some “team-building” stuff. I know one guy – Lalit Kumar – who owns the Adventure Club ( who help in organizing treks etc. I know him personally and can help in organizing one such outing.
