The wish to attend an event as a blogger had been there for long, and here I saw the opportunity to attend the Berger Paint event happening in Delhi. I had seen pictures of BergerXP events in other cities, showing bloggers painting and thus got interested. I requested for the invite, and when I got the invite for the event I was really looking forward to it, but still did not expect it would be so much fun. So, here’s my experience of my first event as an #Indiblogger.
Painting is the worst of the jobs in regards to your house second only to construction hues. Berger paints is trying to break these perceptions through their Express Painting designed with innovative and advanced Home Painting Tools.
Be a child again!
Meeting new blogger friends is awesome, Anoop from Indiblogger made it even easier through the first ice breaking session, we were given 5 slips with information about other blogs and we had figure out whose blogs the slips belonged to. Followed by this was the task of using the sand paper to clean a piece of cardboard given to us as a team. We started to sand the cardboard, don’t know about the time or how smooth did we make it, but it was super fun.
Trying to be painters
Looking like painters ourselves
We did try out hands at painting as well. We painted an image of “Go Green” and created a lot of mess with colours on our table. My hands are visible at the bottom of the painting to take a pledge on behalf of the entire team. We did not win the competition :(, but still playing with colours was exciting as the heading says” Be a child again”. Indiblogger ensured we became children and enjoyed all the activities thoroughly.
Let the Expert speak!
Mr. Vinod Das, Head-Consumer Services & Business Development at Berger paints spoke about the benefits of Express painting and how it made the tedious process of paint into a process which was “Faster, Cleaner and Better” and it came with no extra cost over the traditional paint process. There are certain other benefits of Express painting, which are worth the mention:
Express painting is 40% faster
Service provided by trained painters
Dust free house at no extra cost
Their commercial does the job of describing, what a relief it is to have a service like Express paint. Check out the TV commercial below:
Now, let me talk about the tools that make the Express painting by Berger paints so cool. These tools not only promise a world-class painting experience without the dust, dirt and paint spillage but also assures the homeowner of an excellent finish, reducing the time required for a painting assignment.
Eyes show the strength of one’s soul – Paulo Coehlo!
For if there were love and hatred all is seen in one’s eyes. As I sat and pondered over the depth and character of these little but powerful scanner of one’s thoughts and intentions, there were a few thoughts which struck me.
I know the eyes of a traitor and a keeper, as they are the eyes of the mirror of your soul
I saw the eyes lying and cheating; saying there is no worth in a single word they say
I saw them all; and I saw eyes that are yours, telling me they share the same pain
Eyes shining like diamonds through crystals falling over our shared joys and sorrows
Eyes wanting to stay longer than the time permitted on our watches
Eyes telling me they are here to stay!
For years long enough, I thought if love were to be found through someone’s eyes it would only be in a fable.
But when I see your eyes, they stop all trivia around me
I see my world resting in them, and they hold that moment for me
I see meaning in those intense eyes, and they teach the meaning of life to me
For years long enough, I thought a touch may lead to quiver’s it would be fiction
But your gaze caught me off guard, giving me quicker’s never felt through a touch ever!
Eyes that bind me and say they’ll love me forever!
The food was sumptuous, presentation even better, though I did not fancy the ambiance, food makes up for it. But it won’t be light on your pocket, this place will cost you as much as any other 5 star hotel. For 2 people, the dinner with drinks will be around 5k.
My head is full of shame and my heart full of rage, this is a country who worships Durga but does so many inhuman things to its daughters. It is the society, Bollywood, upbringing or unrest, what led to the demolition of morals this steeply. As I ponder over these incidents it makes me so sad, how can you reach out to these women, more than the women, how can you reach out to all those men, who think it’s okay and it’s just fun. When will they learn the indelible marks they leave won’t erase, it will leave stains on these girls and the society, who has forgotten how to respect its women
Isn’t it that you who taught her not to trust any men around and now when she speaks against these acts, you turn around to call her feminist
Isn’t the stranger on the road who tried to grope her taught her that roads are not safe
Isn’t the cousin who tried to touch her proved her, that the only her brother will keep her safe and other relations are a farce
Isn’t the friend who tried to molest her, made sure, she believes that men just want sex
Isn’t the guy she liked only wanted to enter her pants
Isn’t the man at her home breaking her confidence, by calling her names, by using force and by away taking her shame
Isn’t she taught that she will be used and seen just as a sex object
Isn’t it a matter of society where you raise your girls to feel so unsafe from everyone
There is a Nirbhaya and a silent cry somewhere in your city, or your town, or maybe even your own house.
But it did it make you stop, and take some action or has it became so mundane, stale and insipid that crosses over eyes as a news piece and it is over.
It may be your eyes are shut and have stopped notice of a force against her, but those exploiting hands, leering eyes and brutal force has not.
