Last weekend I got invited to a Blogger meet organised by Social potpourri and Safetykart.com.
The event was a close knit one with about 15-20 people.
Social potpourri is a platform started by Kriti Mukherjee and Sulekha Rawat.
You can read more about it HERE.
Kriti is a sweetheart and though i was a little hesitant (initially) she sounded too sweet so i couldn't back out :p They arranged for the conveyance too (Awwww....)
The event was held in a bed and breakfast centre.
So,everything was very homely.
I esp loved the very vintage decor and have tonnes of pics for you to drool over.
Mr.Vikas Bagaria (Managing Director of SafetyKart) was like a kid in Candyland demonstrating all the safety gadgets with much enthusiasm.There was a Taser (electric shocker),pepper spray,ipod/iphone crush proof cover,mini torches, Care safety devices...something for everyone.

At the end of the demo, everyone was starving and started munching on the bread and garlic dips,cheese ,white and red wine with huge varieties of fruits :)

"Social Potpourri - An Anthology" is a mixed bag of stories about unnatural happenings, love, fear, ambition, marriage, complications, war and more.
