Being a student of life, I learn from every single day in my life. And you know very well, that I try to share what I am learning as much as possible. That’s why I am writing this post to share with you some interesting experiences I had in last few days ( 9th – 12th May’15), and the lessons I learned from those experiences. Quite an interesting mix it was – starting from Rabindra Jayanti Celebration at a close friend’s home, meeting 37 amazing Kolkata Bloggers at #KolBloggersMeet , meeting school friend (actually 1 batch senior) after 5 years, spending a day each with two people I’ve met on Social Media, being invited to tea with US Consul General and Other Digital Marketing professionals from Kolkata, enjoying first ride with Uber and feeling Earthquake tremor for the second time in life. এই কদিনের এত গল্প, দেখি কতটা লিখতে পারি .
What if an event can be arranged, where aspiring photographers can come and get to learn about photography from the experts? Get inspired by the awesome work of these experienced photographers? Not only that, but also the aspiring photographers get to meet and collaborate with local bloggers. And then finally they get to learn how to build their personal brand using Social Media from the Digital Marketing experts. If you are thinking that all of these things sound too good to be true, specially to arrange in Kolkata, then let me tell you that some young passionate individuals successfully arranged this event and it was a huge success. And fortunate I was, to be present there.
Few days back when I was writing the post on MeetUp Magic , I was really really hoping for many more meetup experiences. In 2014 I took a resolution to take my Social Networking activities to offline meetings also. So when I got the chance to meet Kolkata Bloggers at a Bloggers meet organized by Aviva India, I was really very excited. Though I’ve met Twitter friends and Facebook friends earlier but never attended any blogger meet before. And as I am resuming my blogging after 3-4 years, I was bit hesitant also to join. But then again, as I teach people to get out of comfort zone, I followed my own advice and went there. Trust me the experience was beyond my expectation. Let me tell you the whole story.
