And the winner App of Nokia app tasting event is….


Around 300 bloggers, fantastic ambiance @ITC gardenia, fun filled events, Platform for spurting creative brains and 2 hot handsome anchors what more would you ask for a bombastic evening?
But not only these.. luck had lot more to offer me that evening!!! As I am still sailing in the sea of happiness ;) here is the glimpse of my first Blogger meet which I was badly waiting for…

I was about to miss this event if I had not received a call from a dear blogger friend Sahana who was kind enough to remember me and informed to register to the event immediately. From the moment I registered I was all excited and waiting to meet the fantastic bloggers of Beautiful Bangalore :D  
Oh what an evening, How much creative one can get was showcased in the event there !!! I cannot even imagine a person who’s mouth waters at the thought of tasty dish being at the App event or A complete Techie gadget freak at the Food event? Combination does not make sense right!!! All these thoughts were demolished when we saw Rajiv Makhni and Vikas Khanna take over the stage and cruise everyone into fantastic jolly ride of fun, quiz, and apps of Nokia

Nokia which is back with a Bang with its awesome lumia series just proved their creativity by planning such an event to introduce their phone and apps to the indiblogger community via which they will be definitely successful in spreading the news, not only this they used the fact that we bloggers are one amongst the creative brains. This was the right catch for Nokia to use these creative brains to collect most wacky and innovative ideas, so they made us write any number of ideas and drop it in the drop box which was getting evaluated by panel of judges for “Your wish is My app” as this evening was progressing…
And so there I was enjoying the awesome ambiance and appetizers, I was eagerly hoping to get on stage at least once, forget winning all we wanted to be was just be a midst two smart men :D sooooooon I got that chance Me and my sister Ranjana were picked to get on stage for one last event to win Nokia Lumia - one last chance…
and hoping for....

And there we were standing clueless of what the event could be and for our hearts to break they announced QUIZ that’s the least thing I do well and The GADGET guru throwing questions at it :D we realized we were totally in soup :D but then ;) somehow guessing the ingredients for DIVINE Soup by Vikas khanna saved us :D and we were the winners of :D the QUIZ contest and OMG :D Two phones ;) Nokia Lumia 510!!! ;) BTW they saved our home from world war between me and my sis :D for the phone :D by gifting one each :D


With immense happiness I thought I cant get more lucky until The GADGET GURU announced the top 5 App for the evening and how the crowd laughed when he said “Who is this who choose to write their gmail id on this app idea!!!” yes that wacky brain was mine I jumped high and screamed to have heard him spell it “ramyam139…” I ran up to the stage and again this was not easy there were 4 more with me with fantastic ideas so we had the final contest to present our idea :D and win audience vote and judges Vote, completely like TV show…

After all the drama, of some blogger friends hating my idea, some encouraging at the fun of it and some just cheering me J there the judges where announcing “And the winner App of Nokia app tasting event is….”  Yes yes yes it was mine :D “AccsApp” an app which would help women to spot their favorite accessories and save men ;) from making boring trips to shopping malls with their sister\wife\girlfriend

Innovation is best done when there are no boundaries… Nokia Lumia already has the best innovative and wacky apps like , Alcohol meter, Gangnam style Dance tutor ;), and wow the direction finder was just so amazing and by giving platform for more innovation I am sure they are going to find tons of wacky ideas…
For blogging for 6 yrs now, felt very rewarded to smile to fantastic bloggers like Rachana Parmar, Sujatha Sathya, Sudharshan, Farida, Suresh Chandrasekaran, Anup Karn, Sahana Rao, Sibi and many many more.
All in all, this was absolutely OMG evening for me! 
Thanks indiBloggers and Nokai for making this evening the best evening of my life!


PS: I have one more wacky App idea Nokia are you listening ;)? “ScareApp” Just put my video of shouting and jumping around the stage which you captured last evening, I am sure it will be one of the most scary app ever in the market :D

PS: Sudharshan thanks a lot for sharing snaps with me...

Your concept of the app is awesome Ramya. Did Nokia say they will release it? We need such an app yaar! For such an app, guys will gift their wives with nokia phones just to ensure that app is present and working :D
