Indiblogger Pune Meet and Greet August 2015

Initiated by fellow Pune Blogger Kaustav Sen, a self organised meetup was scheduled for yesterday evening at 11, East Street Cafe, in Camp Pune. And it was a nice meeting where I met some very interesting bloggers. Conversations flowed over a pitcher of Peach Ice Tea, and some snacks.

About the fellow Bloggers

Tara Nair, Vikram Karve, Kaustav Sen, Vibhuti Bhandarkar, Rutuja Joshi, Shubhashree Patra, and Aziz were some of the attendees at the event. Tara, Vikram, Rutuja, Vibhuti are creative writers and their blogs are about fiction, mostly. Kaustav is a photoblogger. And true to the agenda mentioned on the event page, the conversations were free flowing and we discussed a lot of things under the sun, from differences between and to Vikram's most thrilling experience during his time in the Navy when they actually sailed through the eye of a cyclone. While I have been surfing the blogosphere reasonably actively for sometime now, I was meeting these guys for the first time, and I am glad I could make it to the Meet and Greet event yesterday.

About the Cafe - 11 East Street Cafe
11 East Street Cafe is on, well, East Street, Camp. The cafe is themed like a high street in London, lined with mock shops along both walls of the entire length of the cafe, with the front of the iconic London Bus jutting out at the entrance of the cafe. The menu is a delight for people who eat meat, and the cafe serves alcohol as well. Good ambience and good food, this cafe is an ideal place for merry chitchat.
