BUF Delhi Meet 24/06/07 :-) (Ishita)



On Sunday 24th June 2007, we had our first Delhi BUF Meet…not exactly the most planned meet coz it was fixed up on rather short notice and not everyone could make it…! But there were 6 of us - Rajiv, Suchi, Uttara, Sushmita (Shooting Star), Vyom (Aakash) and Ishi (me me me!) and of course the super brat Vedant who to our surprise was quite well behaved and had a fun time with us!

For a first time meeting, I must say we got along very well indeed and I guess all the virtual chit chat and BUF posts/comments had us not only kinda familiar with each other but eager to know each other better!

We met up at the food court Eatopia @ India Habitat Center. For those unfamiliar with Delhi, this is where the movie “Rang De Basanti” was shot….what you thought was the DU campus is actually IHC!

We all reached almost arnd the same time…late by ½ an hour :P!! But once we settled down at our table, conversation flowed easily…the nice thing about a food court is that everyone finds something suitable to munch on.

Sushmita (Shooting Star) was a surprise coz of course she with her pink tee and long flowing skirt was a far cry from the “biker dudette” image I had been carrying. Friendly and definitely interesting (*ahem* guys!) she was a delight to know better :)! Oh yes she was a careful eater….nothing high on calories and at one point she was off to try a yummy desert but settled for Iced Tea instead. Now I have to learn how to exercise self control with my eating habits….from her *grin*

Vyom (Aakash)….Now I knew him like right away coz I’d been through all his pic on his Orkut profile :P He looked relaxed and very nice indeed in his Kurta…with him, conversation flowed easily and he has a really cute smile :)! And yes a total foodie! He suggested I try the stuffed potatoes and I wasn’t disappointed! I learnt he’d been blogging a long time indeed…started out in 2004 and to think I only just got to know him @ Blogsville…!

I won’t write about Uttsy, Suchi and Rajiv….lol…coz well, I’ve known them personally for a long time. And we have our lil BUF meet almost every night over dinner :P

Now let me share the really fun part of our time together … first we got a call from Rajbir (The outlaw) and he had chat with all of us turn by turn….it was really nice talking to him and I’m sure he had a great time catching up with us too…coz soon after came his sms which went as follows,

“It was a pleasure talking to all of u and adding to my list of voices that affect, sush makes it to my list of best voices along with Mala, kay, Sophia and sangita.:)and Vyom joins u with u, Rajiv and Suchi :) and for the rest my opinion stays the same. :)”

Then we smsd John … he he .. A rather frantic sms coz it had him worried for a bit :P but once he called we had fun…played a lil game…passed the fone around and he had to guess who was who :P ! Yep he got it alll right !!! Must say it was quite exciting ! And of course J will have to give us his own feedback to that call … my guess is he had a blast!

I’m sure the pics tell the story itself. Enjoy! And hoping u guys drop by to Delhi soon so we can all have another fun filled meet …. We delhiites insist u do!! :P

  1. Wow.. I must say I was veeerrry envious of all you guys.

    And the call, it indeed took me by surprise, given the fact that I just woke up and was having my first cup of coffee.

    Yes, the lil game of recognizing the voices was good indeed and now that I scored a 6 out of 6, i'm waiting for my prize :D

    Cheers to you guys, hopefully i'll be around the next time.
