Pahela Nashaa, Pahela Khoomar #JodeyDilonKo

'Pahela Nashaa ... Pahela Khoomar ... Nayaa  Blogger hain ... Nayaa Intezaar '

my feelings were verbatim, when I reached 'The Leela' for my 1st IndiBlogger meet. The very 1st IndiBlogger I met was Sabeeha, whose nanee stays in Karachi-Pakistan. What a marvellous coincidence! We bonded at the loo without glue , while chatting about our blogs.

Registration followed by lunch, which comprised various Indian and Continental delicacies. The salads were decorated in such a magnificient style that I did not dare to touch it , for the fear of spoiling it's delightful beauty.







The sumptious lunch engergized us for the Indi-Mayhem...  The debate between  Mumbai  and Delhi Bloggers zoomed in top gear , within a few minutes. The topics were HOT , literally as in 'Which city has HOT men ' ,  ' Which city has best public transport ' , 'Which city has best weather ' and ' Which city has best street-food' . You may want to know , who ( Mumbaikars or Delhites ) won the debates on which points ?.

The Million Dollar answer to this question is We the #IndiBloggers are all Winners . We may stay in different cities, but at the end of the day, we are all Indians.




'Zindagi haseen hain , chahe sarhadd ke iss paar ho yaa oos paar ' , we realised soon when Pakistani TV-star Imran Abbas made the entry and how .... WOW !




#JodeyDilonKo silsila started with Q. and A. between Imran and Mumbai-Delhi-IndiBloggers. All the IndiBloggers confessed their die-hard love for Pakistani TV-serials , TV-stars. 

We vouched for our loyal support and  gratitude to @ZeeZindagiTV for launching the channel with this unique #JodeyDilnoKo theme. We all had so many emotions to share with Sultana aapa ( 1st woman broadcaster from Pakistan) and Imran Abbas, that time flew like Hawaa ka zonka. Imran sang 2 lovely songs in his melodious voice at the earnest request of IndiBloggers. 

The High-tea was served after the #JodeyDilonKo session. We interacted with fellow bloggers over steaming Tea / Coffee , samosas , pakodas and coconut cookies. Lots of bloggers won Wildcraft bags , Flipkart vouchers ( including yours truly for a Tweeter-contest) , cookies , sugar packet and water-bottle. We all left Leela with a song in our hearts , 



'Khooshbu Maheke ... Pyaar Bahaake ... IndiBloggers Chaheke ... Zindagi #JodeyDilonKo'
