Faster, Cleaner, Better: Leading the Change

IndiMeets are always fun! This one especially which was held last Saturday in Mumbai in association with Berger Paints. What got me all excited was the "colors" bit- it has been years that I got my hands dirty with paint and colors, and so I eagerly looked forward to the fun afternoon. It was lovely to see some familiar faces as I entered. The Inditeam, warm as ever assisted us with all the event details. After the registration and a delicious meal at the Taj Vivanta ,where the event was being held, we seated ourselves amidst a lot of chatter and infectious positive energy in the room. 

"The Stage"

The host for the event, Anoop, kept us all at the edge of our seats with fun exercises and some leg-pulling. We started with musical chairs (with a twist, of course!). After warming up to some "Dancing with the Chairs", and some rounds of introductions for the new and old Indibloggers, we were all geared up for more. Bloggers were being recognized with vouchers for best tweets, insta posts and pictures and most of us were busy typing away throughout the event! (And oh yes, I won one too!😀 )

The next session introduced us to an innovative new style of painting by Berger Paints called Express Painting. This style uses automatic machines for all the work involved- right from scraping the walls to smoothen them to removing the dust to even painting them evenly. This not only reduces the average time required for painting an entire house (externally or internally) but also lowers the effort to clean the dust and wait patiently for the entire process to be completed. A 2 week period now reduces to a 2 day window with Berger Express Painting! Now if that hasn't surprised you, there's more!!! The cost involved remains the same too! No additional charges at all! A stress free and a hassle free painting technique indeed!!! Mr. Chandranath Banerjee explained the process very well along and we were shown some advertisements too! 
Several Indibloggers asked questions on the techniques and tools to Mr. Banerjee. The tools- Sanding Machine, Multipurpose Mixer, Auto Roller, High Pressure washer etc. were put up for display at the venue too.

Later, there were a lot of fun team events lined up for us. My team was named, "Team Cleaners". We started with an activity which involved smoothening a surface using sand paper. Geared up in headcaps, gloves and masks, we were all set for "Operation Safai". After a short tea break, we were back for some more painting. The theme was- "Mumbai" and all the teams did exceptionally well. We used Berger colors and drew on a canvas. The beautiful paintings were later presented by each team.

The afternoon ended with a smile on every face. Thank you Team Indiblogger and Berger for a fun Saturday. we were handed a goodie bag with information on the Express Painting techniques and a coffee mug. 

Looking forward to the next one soon! Cheers..

Relax.

Having a crazy imagination, I spend most of my time thinking and dreaming- sometimes works in my favor, sometimes does not. So, the other day, the thought struck me when I saw a tree- it was completely bare- a few leaves here and there. That got me wondering. This very tree which provides shade to passing pedestrians with its green foliage in summer, blooms delicate flowers , which later bear fruit , so easily lets go of everything and takes a new form again- in Spring with new shoots and tiny green leaves. Maybe it's the way of nature- a bear hibernates, a snake sheds its skin et al. Is it the same with us-human beings? Which time of the year do we dedicate to letting go, to rest and to rise again, renewed with hope and vigor? We do it when we have no choice. In recent times, yoga, meditation, Vipasana etc. have gained wide popularity. Drowned in a constant dizzying pace of life, the soul needs a renewal of new energy too. So, the next time- take a break when you want to, not when you have to! :) Happy weekend!

Cheers!

Crimson

It came out of nowhere,
Creeping about on the roofs & walls,
They tried cutting it, to stop it from growing.
But spread it did, entwining itself on the branches & the hedge.

One day when they woke up, 
The garden was bathed in crimson hues,
Flower petals glistened with fresh dew drops,
The sun rays softly beamed down.
The Weed had finally bloomed.

Tides

The distances grew
Like the sea from the shore during a low tide
Conversations became shorter
And the laughter was forced
On the verge of collapse
Came a full moon night,
And the waves lashed forth again
With renewed vigor.
A new cycle.
