The program began and they kind of welcomed everybody and then after a few introductions wherein the speaker began to mention there were a few who have come from outstations and mentioned my name and said Sharon has come from Mumbai , please welcome him. after that began the program wherin they selected 60 top bloggers outta the 277 attending to introduce themselves and their blog. Once that began and after about 35 of them introducing themselves my name cropped up on the screen again. I was more happy and elated that my blog was again being recognised. I just up and introduced myself and felt more happy, they even gave me a photo book.
Once that was done then we had to proceed for lunch in the Akshayapatra Dining hall. that was where i made a few friends. There was this poster on the wall that said - "the food here is Spiritually Elevating, Please don't waste the Food". we had fun eating our food and makng fun others sitting below the poster.
Then we came in back to the hall and then l the head of the Akshayapatra Program came and spoke about the program and shared as to how the akshayapatra program is carried out and how the school children are fed everyday.
After this we were all given a huge chart that had a thread to it and a sketch pen. we had to put it around out neck sso that people cud leave comments about you and your blog and similarly we had to do the same on others charts. that was just too much fun.
Once that was done we had been divided into a few groups on what interests you to blog. I was in the team where they were discussing how the internet is used to harrasss peple and how we can stop them. Again ha loads of fun doing that.
Then the meeting got over and we got our T Shirts.
I simply loved the program cos i made new blog friends for the first time. It was crazy and i hope to be at more such meets.
I am now very happy that my blogging is also for a cause.
