I met Vaibhav ..... this is an understatement. We had a talk that spanned more than 2 hours.

Let me start from the beginning. I called him as soon as I reached Mumbai , which was somewhere around 6:15 pm. I told him I'd call him back later ... but couldn't make it.

Called him a couple of times the next day. I asked him to come to where I was put up , coz it was my first time at Mumbai. He gave me a lot of lame excuses , all revolving around the fact that he'd have to trek to get to where I was put up. Ironically, it turned out that I had to trek (sorry walk) for 30 min to get to the point where I agreed to wait for him.

Vaibhav had no clue as to what I look like. I gave him directions on how to spot me. I knew what Vaibhav looks like in 1-D .. but in 3-D ??!! anways , to cut a story short , we recognised each other and said "Hello"

I asked him a question (he has put it up on his blog), and I was totally unprepared for his answer. We walked in silence for sometime. , and then started talking. Rather, i did the talking , and he did the replying / listening.

We walked in a mall , near a fountain (where we hoped to catch the water spray , but didnt really ), and on the road. We questioned , we talked.

And , I prohibited his taking my snaps.

By the way ,we talked about a lot of bloggers. And we did discuss Sudeep and A/B . And somehow , we were happy that we got to know you both.

We ate .. had dinner rather , and he dropped me back.

Now , he says he learnt about Signal Processing . I learnt a few thing too. One was the word "Pakaao"

10 things about Vaibhav :

  1. He is extremely tall
  2. He is extremely quiet .. I did most of the talking
  3. It it nice walking with him
  4. He knows Pizza Hut and its mannerisms well
  5. He can ask a lot of thought provoking questions
  6. He paid my bill ...... Cant forgive him for this one. The reason he gave is when he comes down to my city , I'd obviously treat him. Obviously ! but the chances of his coming down are minute.
  7. He doesn't really ogle at girls
  8. He likes kids and babies
  9. He has a great looking mobile
  10. He gets to work after 10:30

I really enjoyed meeting Vaibhav, though I am not very sure if he feels the same way ! Thanks for coming, Vaibhav

He paid my bill
A true gentleman.

I think it's cool that you two got to meet. I also can't wait to see how Viabhav responds to this. LOL. I don't know. I just see this turning into a series of posts between you two trying to "set the record straight".

Dew Drops said...

vaibhav said...

vaibhav said...

He is extremely tall No, not really - just about 6 ft.

And Deepa, "pakao" just doen't mean cooking. It has it's other connotations as well. Sudeep, pls help Deepa understand the word!

manish said...

Have all the bloggers started to meet now?? Great !

And yes Deepa :- I do check my blog often :-)

zonko said...

zigackly! have bloggers started meeting now?! very nicely.. bloggin' didn't seem such an active activity (sic) to me!

Twisted DNA said...

Wow, well written. Reminded me of the time when I coaxed my extremely shy/orthodox/paranoid/taciturn wife (not my wife at that time) when we both were 19 years old to come out and meet me. We walked in a similar way, not knowing what to talk and too excited even to breath.

All good stories start like that, I guess :)

Sudeep said...

He gave me a lot of lame excuses

And somehow , we were happy that we got to know you both

Hi Deepa,

If you go to my profile,you will find different blogs from me,the other ones(which are the most recent ones) are on krrish review and Einstein effect(on irrelevant ads).Now,it was just that,I changed the name of my blogs frequently,chosing a different domain name for a new topic.

Anyways,thanks for your kind comments :-)
