Adventures of a Paladin
Days - past, present, and future
A lot of stuff
- happened over the past few days,
- is happening now,
- will be happening over the next few days.

Friday was the Comrade Diwali RumMixxa. The venue was Pulse at Metro Palace, Bandra, and needless to say, I had fun, as freegeek notes.

Saturday was relatives meet up time at Ambernath. I met my brother Amod, the recuperating lawyer after quite some time. There was Sabudana Wada, Idli Sambar, and Fruit Salad for dinner :)

Sunday was the Bombay Bloggers Meet at Cafe Coffee Day, Nirmal Lifestyles, Mulund. I travelled there with Mandar. Tons of coffee was devoured over 4 hours, and another random hour of shopping later, dinner was at The Grill. The meat sizzlers were competely unsatisfactory and service was terrible. Never liked the place too much anyway. The nightcap was some Old Monk Gold, the first time ever for me.
The new Bombay bloggers I met for the first time were Ravi Kiran - the organiser, Amit Varma - the old man, Anand - the Number Theory Prof., Anthony - the passionate Manipuri, Surya - the 'undercover' journalist, Nikita - her as-yet-non-blogging-friend, and of course Mandar and me. Late additions to the gang were Gaurav Sabnis, and Sarika, with guest appearances thrown in by good old freegeek and sumita.

Coversation raged over a wide variety of topics and much of it is documented by Anthony and Amit here. I was largely quiet, catching up with Mandar and Anand.

Tuesday and Wednesday is Bangalore once again - this time I should be able to ping some of the usual suspects.

Friday and Saturday is Delhi. Meeting a few friends there too.

Saturday and Sunday is Pune - home sweet home.

In between all this I am going to continuously squeeze some time out to re-organise my thesis and try to get closer to the first draft :)

I spotted your post about the meet at @ 6 pm. Since I anyway stay in Mulund I was itching to join in but thought you guys would wrap up early, so ditched the idea.

Next time for sure!

Oh shucks. Thing is, these were largely non-LJ guys organising, so too few LJ folks knew on time.
