Foursquare turned 2 on 16 April. And what an apt celebration to the whacky service it was. There were some 1000 parties done by its fan all around the world. Being crazy for it, I was also waiting for its Delhi version, organized by 2 Foursquare mavens - Sarthak Raheja (@sarthakraheja) and Sumit Berry (@iBerrySumi).
They were marketing it quite heavily and did a great job in pushing Foursquare in Delhi. And am so glad they did it. The best part was the swarm badge that we managed....within 55 minutes of the start of celebrations at 8:00 pm...not a mean feat that is! - given it was the first foursquare event in the city at this scale!
I ended up winning 4 awards , one taken away by Vaibhav :) - I won -
1. Maximum number of checkins "Crunked" badge - I had 1850+ checkins at the time of award
2. Most number of mayorships - I had 92 at the time of award and one got lost since then
3. 10 or more checkins at the airport
When Vijay Nair invites you to a gig, you can not avoid it - not for the gig but to meet the man himself :) -...And that happened today... Venue: Hard Rock Cafe Performer - Pentagram , part of their shows to promote 4th album Bloodywood. I am not an expert in the music but I liked the beats, especially the passion of the band and Vishal ofcourse...wish it was a weekend and I would have been there till the end. Some pics for you...
Recent business trips have been hectic but I have enjoyed a lot - thanks to a great wife and also to that obsession habit of being organized like hell! Coupled with these two , I have managed to enjoy a lot in the trips. (well almost! - I forgot dispirin in a recent trip and had to suffer so much! - a simple single thing like that can actually ruin your trip)
There are billions of business travel happening every year and I hope, with this post, to atleast, help a handful of you there to plan your trip better!
Manhattan has been a must visit place for me...a place which can be called center of the world.
It is one of the most densely populated place on Earth...people of every tradition, every culture and with every kind of dreams. Such a unique melting pot the city is that you forget your own identity in one moment and start fighting to retain that very same identity of your own. It is a tough city where you can feel part of the crowd or where you can be the most lonely person on Earth!
And here is a pic that I was waiting to get clicked for , I think, about 27 years or so :)
