It’s been a while since I have been thinking about the word “SPONTANEOUS”. I mean how often we plan certain things and when they are about to get “in-line” for the execution we tend to back off or the circumstances are such that we ultimately end up doing the complete opposite.
It’s been a while since I have blogged. Last time I remember I was on a trip to Uttarakhand-Himachal and even thought about writing a daily log for a two week long fun but then again I am too lazy!
Coming to the point….
Few days ago I received around 7 notification on my phone related to “Bangalore MakerSpace”. It’s a Facebook group for all the enthusiast who are into “Making & Hacking” kind of stuff. If you don’t know what MakerSpace is you can check this link.
Since I follow the core member of the BLR MakerSpace, Kavita Arora on Facebook those notifications were inevitable. As per the trend of receiving notification goes I can figure out that she is quite active during the night-time on Facebook. Hence, I wrote to her (with a slight taste of pun)
“WHEN DO YOU SLEEP?!”
To which she replied and we chatted for like five minutes over FB. Suddenly, she told me about one of the events she was planning to attend at Kolkata, scheduled to take place between 21st to 28th of September (I HOPE I REMEMBER THE DATES CORRECTLY) . So after checking my schedule I thought that it would be a good idea to visit Kolkata during the weekend (Sep 25-27) and also to attend the MakerSpace event.
So I started digging the internet : flights, reservations, costing, hotels etc. Finally, I made up my mind that I’ll be booking the tickets in next couple of days. Two days later I booked the ticket and thought that I should ask about the kind of activity these guys have planned at the Kolkata MakerSpace event.
Just as I was about to ask her to my surprise, I came to know that entire plan has been changed and now the event which was scheduled to take place during September has been shifted.
And co-incidentally today I was thinking about the fact that how spontaneous this whole thing was. First I messaged someone around 2 o clock in the night and 10 minutes later we are searching for a net (booking, hotels, tickets) just to visit an event and couple of days later, the whole thing turns out to be DEAD. (ouch! Harsh word ).
But since this blog post is about how “spontaneous” the things turned out to be, I saw Kavita sharing an event at Bangalore aka Bengaluru for her new MakerSpace today itself. And at that very moment I thought “SHOULD I PLAN A QUICK TRIP?” as Friday is my off and I’ll be getting 3 days to enjoy my freedom and to unravel the beautiful city of Bengaluru on my own.
10 Minutes later :
This Happened :
I guess spontaneous is the word for the “LIFETIME” for me now.
P.s I am excited to meet Kavita and her gang of MakerSpace frenzy people.
P.p.s : OH YES! I haven’t met her physically, till now I know her through her FB posts as she heads the MakerSpace group (which is my domain of interest).
P.p.p.s : This time I’ll definitely write a blog about Bangalore MakerSpace group and about the event also!
