A fragrant day at The Ambipur Indiblogger meet at Chennai


Hi all. I'm so glad to share about the recently ended Ambipur Indiblogger meet(26th May 2013) in Chennai at the Hyatt Regency, Annasalai. Since it was my first ever meet I was little nervous and excited about it and at-last I had a wonderful experience there with the blogger friends. Kudos to Indiblogger and Ambipur(air freshener) for arranging such a remarkable event. It was a great platform for the bloggers to interact with each other and to share their views on various topics.

Here's the schedule for the event :
Registration-01:00 PM, Just the Beginning-01:30 PM, 30 Seconds of fame-01:40 PM,
Lunch-02:30 PM, Smelly to Smiley-03:15 PM, Live & let comment-04:15 PM, IndiForum-04:45 PM, Photo Session-05:15 PM, Head home & keep Blogging-05:30 PM        

I was there by 12.40 PM at the venue and I was asked by the IndiTeam to wait in the lobby until the event starts. While waiting there I found bloggers similar to me who were also came for their first meet. We were discussing on various issues until the event started. The event started with our registration and we all got settled in our place and got to introduce our-self with fellow bloggers in our table. Then the Indiblogger team started with some games and gifts in which all of us participated. Two of our lucky blogger mates won the Samsung Galaxy S4 for their tweets on the event. Then it was followed by introduction part where few of our bloggers got a chance to introduce themselves. Since the attendees were more than 200, only few of us got the chance.


Then came the Lunch time. The food was awesome which included desserts, biriyani's, malai kofta and many more interesting dishes. Then after lunch we were made to do some exercises to keep us awakened after a heavy lunch ;) Then people who were in collar-less t-shirt or dress won a movie ticket each and I was one among them ;) Then a marketing person form Ambipur- the event sponsor came up with some interesting information on their product and explained us about how it works in the process of converting 'Smelly to Smiley' moment. Then few of our bloggers asked some queries to him about the product. Later all of us were given with an Ambipur car aqua air freshener. There were many fragrances of Ambipur and I got the 'Newzealand Springs' fragrance.

The interesting and funny moment of the event has came along then. We were separated into groups based on the flavor and each groups were given a topic to make a skit performance featuring Ambipur in it. Well after the announcement of the topics, we all got into our group to discuss on the skit and we had a wonderful time while doing the skit. It was totally a fun. Every group did their best with innovative ideas. As like their theme 'Escape into Freshness' , we all enjoyed the fragrant evening with fresh thoughts and moments.

During our team discussion on Skit - NewZealand Springs
At the end of the event we all got to be a bit more attentive as many people spoke on various causes that they were a part of. Some campaigns and causes like 'Dark is beautiful' , 'AIESEC' , helping Govt.school students of Tambaram and many more valuable causes were discussed and I hope it would have helped to reach a wider audience that day. All credit goes to the Ambipur and Indiblogger team :) They gave us a nice platform to explore our skills, ideas and to meet our fellow bloggers. Last but not the least we all gathered for a group photo and each of us got an Indiblogger T-shirt. Finally we had some evening snacks along with tea and we dispersed back home finishing a wonderful event.

  11. First of all I am sorry to be posting what may be a random garbage to you like an intruder. But please go through this and help us.

    http://despoticorg.blogspot.in/2013/06/trivandrum-victim.html

    This is a rather tragic story of some helpless employees working in C-DAC, Trivandrum a government of India organisation under DeiTY. Please help us by spreading or posting some advice. Please do not see this as abogus post or the one intended for 'hits'. Please spread.

    As we have said in the post, its impossible for us to go against the management openly as it will cost our jobs. We are not permanent employees. We are just on contract. They can just let us go today if they want. And most of us being only 'employed ones' from our family, we cannot afford to lose our jobs. So as we said an open protest is difficult even if legally. But as you said its ridiculous that a central govt org is doing this. Yes, they are and have been doing this sort of things as ths org is not that much in public domain. Most of the public dont even know such an org exists. So thats why we are seeking public help to spread awareness of things happening. Once its in the public they will feel threatened. And as we cannot possibly bring this out in the public [as it will cost our jobs] we ask for social media help. Thanks again.
