There were loads of other conversations and loads of other bloggers like Akshay, Abhishek, Ideasmithy... sorry - I can't remember them all, but it was a pleasure meeting with you and a pleasure talking to you. A blast of a time.
Thanks Sakshi and Melody (their posts with photos linked) for organising it. Lovely job.
* For the record, and I quote from Sakshi's post, "For the freaking last time, I am NOT related to Sanjay Dutt."
