On 13th Jan 2004, a group of bloggers in Delhi decided to get together and meet offline for the first time. The excitement, apprehension, curiosity of meeting total strangers – all culminated in a rather successful meet and the formation of a community which has lasted all this while.
It’s the 4th birthday of our beloved community. It’s great to have lasted this long in the online world, certainly no mean feat this one! 20 official meets, a couple of unofficial meets, history walks, photography gyaan, book reading, kite flying, link-ups, print/tele coverage (BBCRadio/ Delhi Times/HT City/TodayPlus), flame wars, exercises in blogging outreach and endeavours with NGO’s ……….we’ve come a long way together.
The group has had as its members, people from all walks of life..techies, journos, students, activists, photographers, lawyers, doctors, guys who make their living off blogs!!..and we’ve walked a few steps together. A few in our group have moved on, relocated to other cities, but are still a part in spirit, and try and stay in touch. As the old saying goes “Once a DelhiBlogger, always a DelhiBlogger!!”
We are celebrating our 4 years in this online world and keeping a simple meet this time with no frills and fancies – only fun unlimited, which includes shooting a video of delhi bloggers. If you wish to join in on the fun, please append your name at the meet registration link or write to twilightfairy at gmail dot com (mobile # nine eight one one five one one seven one nine). Please keep your calendars blocked for 13th Jan 2008, 4:30-11pm, Blues, Outer circle, CP, New delhi :). You can drop in any time at your convenience.

Didn’t know you shifted…. well look forward to more frequent posts from you…and am dying to read the guest post..
thanks for dropping by at Jahane Rumi. And, it appears that you are quite an organizer of the meet ups.. I was in Delhi in January and wish I had know about this event.
Anyway, will let you know when I am there next. It would be excellent to meet some of the bloggers..
And the connection is marvellous – we were destined to meet – Punjabis end up finding Punjabis….hahaha
You must read my post on Amrita Pritam and if possible cross-post it as well..
Keep it up and stay in touch, R

Raza Rumi – thanks for your visit. Yes, indeed I have been organising meets ever since I can remember and it would have been interesting to meet you while you were here. Do drop in a line whenever you plan to be here next :).

theek hoon Salty, tu kaisa hai, kahan hai! U are just gayab in the swiss land.
Oh happy new year, ma’am… and yes, that last pic was definitely worth a thousand roses (maybe more?).
P.S. – Why does the submit button on the comments section say “Submit query”?
Hey, u ve gone all sleepy or what? BTW, do something about this template, its too bright “…must…keep..eyes…open..must…type…comment..”
Thanks Sudipta – yes need to change that text on the button :).
Shantanu – just been busy with you know what. And needed a break from the whole DBM thingy as well :|. But new posts shall be up soon. About the template.. err.. you are the first one saying it’s too bright.. are you sure it isnt a monitor thing? 😛 🙂 How are things with you?
things are fine..
template..hmm..maybe its my eyes, as I always seem to do all the blog-reading at this unearthly hour when anything brighter than black hurts 😛
Lovely! It’s always good thing when people come together to celebrate common joys!
I look forward to meeting the Delhi group of Bloggers when I’m in Delhi next.
And you, should come to Mumbai & join us too!
