I know all the answers... but cannot figure out the context of the questions. Koi mar gaya kya? And yet, I cannot find the common link ( actor/director ) in any/all of the adaptations.
Please help Sir Dipta!

To begin with, I am Shashi, and like you, I am one of the recipient of IBAwards 2013 for 'Spirituality and Religion' section. From the day of awards, I was trying to get in touch with all the IBAwardees 2013, in order to

a) Organise a meet up to network and share our passion for blogging.
b) Publish a book, where each one of us can be an Author, contributing one chapter or few pages, sharing thoughts and ideas about Social Media and blogging...

Please do respond, if the ideas above appeals to you.

As I am on my business trip to Pune (10th-11th Sept) and then on to Delhi (12th-13th Sept), and in the last leg on personal travel to Rishikesh (15th-16th Sept), I thought of using this opportunity to reach out to the fellow IBAwardees in these cities and if possible meet few of them face to face. Let me know if you are interested. Once I have inputs from you and others, then I will organise a meet at a common place.

I will be very grateful if you can send me a message on my email ID if interested in meeting along with the other bloggers in your city who I am approaching through this email.

Since I am based in Chennai and do travel to Mumbai and Bangalore as well as on my business, hence I also plan to meet in person with the bloggers in these cities shortly. So let me know, where are you based so that we can meet face to face along with other bloggers when I am there.

My other social media presence is here
Indiblogger ( , as well as At Twitter @VerseEveryDay; Face Book and at Google+ )

Cheers and Happy Blogging.
