A blogmeet and a week end

The Blog meet this time around was held at the Madras Boat Club, on the banks of Adyar River (yes it is a river). There was a huge crowd this time around, probably due to the location. The names that I remember are

Kiruba (Sify)
Somu (Sify)
Vijay( Businessman)
CCG (Copywriter)
Harish (Student)
Nirenjan (HCL Tech)
Ravikumar (Resort Dev. Auth)
Vijay (Isoft)
Samanth Subramanian (Writer)
Ram Viswanathan (IBM)
Kumara Raghavan (Melbourne visitor to Chennai)
Chinmayi (Singer)
Vinod G (Software)
Anil (TCS)
Prabhu Karthik (Software)
Vaibhav( Software)
Archana (Software)
Shyam
Sathish
Prashanth (MBA Student)
Vijay (MBA Student)

and there were some more names I missed - a journo from Indian Express who doesn't blog, the girl in the second photo and a guy named Sudhir (I think). With such a huge crowd, after introductions and attempts by Enfield Marketing manager to steer the talk towards Royal Enfield trips, the meeting broke up into smaller groups having varied discussions.

Couple of photos from CCG's camera.

Sunday we had planned a get together of my classmates from LIBA at the MGM Beach resort. 16 out of 25 confirmed members turned up. Had a nice time doing nothing as seen in this photograph.

Somu, it was just that I knew half the crowd from earlier meets :-)
