  • yesterday the Delhi Bloggers Bloc completed 6 years! thanks to everyone who's been part of it in someway! http://is.gd/6ezEi #

The Delhi Bloggers community completes 6 years!

Cats: Camps, DBM, twitter| 6 Comments »

It’s been another glorious year in the history of this group of Delhi’s bloggers! It seems like just yesterday when we were celebrating the 5th year anniversary of our group which is still growing, spreading further and hopefully adding value to the lives of all who are a part of it! :).  From my end, it sure has been one hell of an experience which has provided me not just an opportunity to interact with so many bloggers and indulge in so many events/activities with them, but has also directed me towards a new profession altogether!
The Delhi Bloggers Bloc completes 6 years on 13th Jan! (It was created after the first ever Delhi Bloggers meet on 13th Jan 2004).
In the past year we have organised some spectacular meets like India’s first ever WordPress camp where Matt Mullenweg, the founder of WordPress & Om Malik, the founder of the Gigaom network, joined us along with a lot of bloggers from all remote corners for India! This was the first such pan India bloggers/social media enthusiasts event to be organised. It was also the first such event where global attention was upon what was happening in the Indian capital, thanks to it being a WordPress Camp being fairly popular events. Such was the excitement generated during this meet that the hashtag of our event (#wci) top trended for the entire 2 days that the event was held for!
Another wonderful meet organised in the past year was the first ever meetup with a politician in India – and who else but the savviest one – a meet with Dr. Shashi Tharoor himself! It wouldn’t be entirely incorrect to state that the entire country’s twitterati and bloggerati was watching our event hashtag to see what was transpiring in this one of a kind unique interaction between a politician & users of new media.
Apart from these exciting events, we of course also had a lot of the regular fun meets, heritage walks, photography walks, food meets/tw-eatups.
We would love your suggestions on what all you want to do in the coming year (both online/offline) .
A big thanks to everyone who’s been a part of this journey whether it was by helping organise meets, participating in meets or even being a silent spectator of the goings on.
If you aren’t a part of this community and want to join us, here’s how to join us on the Mailing ListFlickrLinkedinOrkutFacebookTwitter. You can also stay tuned in to our website by subscribing to the rss feed here.

Let the drums roll!

#DBM32 – walkathon from India gate to Rashtrapati Bhawan

Cats: DBM| 3 Comments »

After the rather sumptuous & also culturally rich meet at Jama Masjid/Chandni Chowk (DBM31), we now plan to meet at India Gate for a walkathon from India Gate to the Rashtrapati Bhawan. The weather is just right and we explore the historical and architectural aspects on the way.

We have two experts with us, who could guide us along on the short walk in that area. Mani with a keen interest in history and Pashim Tewari (visiting faculty at School of planning and architecture) will share some architectural aspects of the Lutyens Delhi. However it is also recommended to read up a bit about India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhawan, for this meet.

Here are the details.

Date : 15th Nov’09 (Sunday)
Time : 3pm-5pm
Venue meeting point is at India Gate (not the lawns but the gate)
Agenda - Meet at India gate at 3pm, sit in lawns till 4pm and get to know each other. After this we walk from India Gate towards Rashtrapati bhawan and go as far as they let us. We explore the area, read up on it before hand and get guidance from experts – Mani & Pashim (history & architecture perspective respectively). After the walk it is upto the attendees if they want to go to some nearest coffee place (which would be in CP).

Map : http://bit.ly/3Ke1Ou

Who should attend?

Anyone who has an active interest in heritage, history, culture, architecture, photography, or just Delhi in general, and documents it through blogs, tweets, flickr pictures, podcasts or in any other way. Or anyone who has an interest in meeting the oldest bloggers group in Delhi (5.5 yrs old) and having some fun along the way :).

For this meet, the coordinator would be Twilight Fairy (9811511719). Mani can be contacted at 9899303108 & Pashim at 9810291943. Please confirm your attendance in the comments or at the facebook event. While you are at it, please join us here in facebook and here in the mailing list.

#DBM31 – ramzaan special – tentative agenda

Cats: DBM| No Comments »

Dear all,

We now have another bunch of people joining us for this meet – EOID gang (Eating out in Delhi). Their meet and our meet coincides very much and this just adds to the merriment. They are of course experts in “eating out in delhi”.
Please note that we are PREPONING the time of the meet by half hour, so that we move for our jaunt at *precisely* 5:45pm.
Here’s the tentative action plan for the day:
1. meet at chawri bazaar exit of Chawri bazar metro station at 5:30pm this saturday. (please note there is a chandni chowk station as well & chawri bazaar metro station is different, so make sure you know the correct stop)
2. We move from there at sharp 5:45pm, to head straight to the Jama Masjid to witness the daily breaking of the fast. We all reach Jama masjid by 6 pm (walking or thru rickshaw etc)
3. Iftar on Saturday is around 6:35pm so this is the correct timing to be there.  People are advised to wear clothes that keep their arms and legs covered. In addition, women should bring a scarf/chunni/etc to cover their heads. Some of us should also bring a bedsheet/chattai to spread out on the floor at the Masjid so we can relax and break the fast with everyone else. If there are ppl fasting they can get fruits/dates/water to break their fast with. If you are not fasting, even then you are welcome to do the same.
Those carrying a camera might be charged an entry fee at the gates. The purpose of going inside JM is not only to observe a ritual or to click pics, but also to interact amongst ourselves, because practically there wouldnt be any other place where a big group can sit and interact within members.
4. Post JM we head out at 7:15pm, to chawri bazaar to taste some delicacies. Some of us would be interested in non-veg, some in veg.. people are free to pursue their tastes separately also :), and possibly meet at a common point later like sitaram bazaar (which sells some unique kulfi)
This aspect of our meet can be dynamic based on the groups preferences at that point.
Hope to see you there. For coordination with the group, you can contact me at 9811511719 or Hemanshu Kumar at 9873664290.
cheers
Priyanka
