indimeet berger express painting experience

Once again, IndiBlogger had held a meet in Delhi. Me being a little introvert, since I have started blogging, IndiBlogger gave me a great opportunity through these meetings to meet other bloggers from the community and helped me come out of my bubble and create my own identity. From the time of first IndiBlogger meet, I have tried to improve my social skills and open up to other bloggers of the community which helps in channeling great blogging ideas. IndiBloger is an amazing platform where one gets an opportunity to create their identity amongst several other bloggers and get to know them and their blogs better.

Unlike the past where Megha Gupta, a fashion blogger, is always there to accompany me to the meet, this time I had no company as she couldn’t make it to the meet. However, this meet gave me an opportunity to meet new bloggers like Preeti Chauhan, Dr. Mandira, Shwetab, Joyti Arora and Jhilmil. I was aware of these bloggers and their work but this was the first time I got to meet them in person and know them better.

 The registration process was little different as opposed to the previous meets, it was to start with an invite from IndiBlogger for which I had been waiting for impatiently so I put up the request twice and got my invite.

This time the meet was held pretty far from my house in Dawrka at Venvata by Taj but that didn’t stop me from going. Like always it started with registration through QR code scanning and we were given a twitter badge with our names on it which looked pretty awesome. The energized team of IndiBloger was all set to kick start the event, the opening lines were given by Anoop and we were handed out an envelope containing 5 slips. The slip had links for various bloggers and we had to get those bloggers to sign their respective slips. Unfortunately, there were only two bloggers in the meet available to sign the chits that I had, one being Mr. Khardooja and other being my own.

Followed by this was the speech by Mr. Das on the new concept of how to save time and money using the new tools introduced by Berger Paints and how his team of profession painters were able to do wonders with the same. The team of professional painters could paint a whole house without damaging or letting a single drop of paint on the furniture. These professionals are trained by the Berger in their academy. Mr. Das informed us on how they have already trained over 21000 professional painters along with the knowledge of new tools introduced to market by Berger. While he was explaining about the new painting tools, we realized that once again there is a box being kept on our tables, the contents were a mask, gloves and a cap. This was for our next task where we were to form a team of eight members and smooth out the play-board using a sandpaper provided to us and later it was inspected by the team of Berger professionals, The purpose of this task was to educate us on how difficult and time consuming it is using the sandpaper on the wall as opposed to the new sanding tool from Berger. This indeed was true. This was tiring task, proving its worth for the Berger tools and was followed by tea break.

After the tea break, there were some boxes for every team containing material to write on various topics given out by the IndiBlogger team. Our topic was Swach Bharat and the painting done by our team mate Dr. Mandira was outstanding, with the guidance and ideas by all of us. The meeting was marked by giving out the best painting award to one of the groups.

And though the meeting was officially over the meet wasn’t, we were given the opportunity by Berger and IndiBlogger to understand and know more about the new tools by Berger with the help of their professionals.  The first tool was for sanding the walls of your house without facing the cloud of dust that usually is present when using the hand held sandpaper, the tool has as dust bag where all the dust gets collected and can later be dumped without creating a mess.  The second tool was for mixing the strainer, colour and water to create your desired colour without getting it on your hand or making a mess on the floor as it usually does. The third tool was the electronic painting roller which was a very efficient and convenient for painting the walls. The roller could be filled with paint and the wall can be painted in one go at the same flow. This eliminates the need to dip the roller in paint time and again. These tools not only save time but also are very efficient hence value for money.
Looking at the advancement of painting tools and how Berger is working towards making their consumers life easy without compromising on quality and cost, I cannot help myself but write this slogan for them – “Ghar rahe hit, Budget mei bhi fit”

As we got together for a group photo, this marked the end for an amazing IndiBlogger meet. With the hopes for more of such amazing meets by IndiBlogger to come in the future, we bid farewell to each other and headed our way. This event was a delightful experience where I made new bloggers my friends and overwhelmed to know my blog is known by them which makes me feel proud to be a part of IndiBloger family.
