DBM . The 4th Anniversary meet.

Filed under: Uncategorized — coolantz @ 6:26 pm

13th January was the 4th anniversary for the DBM, and this time around I decided, that I had been in Delhi long enough and I ought to meet the people, who write and whose work I so religiously follow (that even my RSS reader takes some time to load now-a-days).


So, well, I got into my shoes(apart from the other stuff), and decided to kick off till CP where the meeting was planned….. Blues.


Needless to say, I was a bit apprehensive at first. Even more so because of a sort of “Power tussle” that managed to create 2 groups, and two meets, on separate dates. Anyways, after having met these people, I wonder why anyone would ever have problems in the first place.


Theories apart, My gatherings and observations from the meet are:

  1. Blues is a nice place. If you are a Delhi-ite, like good music, this is a must visit. I just wish it had a section for non-smokers 🙂
  2. The people involved with the organizing task are quite responsible and capable.
  3. Some of the people I met are very Jovial. Quite frankly, I expected some bookworms, but, these people are lively (they still might be bookworms, though not in the typically portrayed mold 🙂 )
  4. Would have loved to speak to each of them separately, for longer durations of time, but blues is not quite a place that encourages conversations.

  5. Never touch a sizzler plate, even after the smoke’s died out, and other people are mouthing it’s contents at a brisk pace.


PS: I realize, that this post is coming at a rather odd time, (read late), but I had been ridiculously busy for the past week. I further shamefully admit, that I’m composing this post from the airport, cause my flight is 3 hours late.


But I hope I’ll get to write more often in the near immediate future, cause I foresee myself having considerable amount of free time.



  1. Hey Gautam.
    It was great meeting you too. And yes, we all managed to have a great time, in spite of the loud music and the entire crowd to meet :D.
    Until next time then…S m i l e
