This is in continuation of Bookoholics Open Mic Part I which is posted here. Part II Continues -
The only bad part about this meet was that Pinak followed the time limit !!! We all were having such a great time listening to him. The applause which followed after his presentation in itself expressed how much we all appreciated his talk.
The podium was then shared by Jash. Jash is a dynamic go-getter, an ex-asst head boy of Xaviers, a creative person and a nature lover. He presented a hindi poem, 'E Insaan Tu Aaisa Kyu Hai??' which is a joint effort by his friend, Uday Chinai and himself.
Aaliyah, our very own in-house beauty who can boast of excellent oratory skills to match followed next… She presented a small talk on Money and the importance of it today.
Aaliyah was followed by Tanya. Tanya introduces herself as a bird who is learning to fly... a poem who wants to meet that grand ocean... She likes dancing, singing, writing, speaking & watching hard core horror movies. She recited a self composed poem.
Rohan followed Tanya to grab everyones attention... Rohan is someone who is blessed with the classic gift of gab and also knows how to utilize it to the maximum!! Besides being a lawyer, Rohan is true blue cinemaholic . Being multi- talented, he revealed himself as a poet and allowed us to have a peek into his poetic pool...
Rohan was followed by Shrey who in himself is a big surprise package. Shrey described himself as a student, a thinker, a musician and an almost photographer. Being multi-ambitioned is what he likes about himself and adjectives such as sheepish, humble, disciplined, down to earth are what do not describe him at all !!
Last speaker for the day, Hemant Sir did not need any introductions with Bookoholics. His book review of 'Are You Joking Mr Feynman' in the last Bookoholics meet was a treat for everyone present. This time he was speaking on "What One Reads" which was about the "reading" we do other than books...
This marked the end of the scheduled speakers list. The forum was then thrown open for anyone who wanted to speak to the group or comment on the given presentations. Pinak was called upon to speak on Bookoholics 2.0 which is starting with a new book circulation model for members. He was then followed by Prabhakar who had a genuine feedback to share with the group and involved everyone in a good discussion.
The meet ended with a true delight. Shrey orated "The Great Dictator" by Charlie Chaplin to the group... and all of us were just left aghast by his brilliant oratory skill. This was really the cherry on the cake. A great ending to a great meet at Bookoholics.
Following are some photos of the audience spell bound by the speakers during various presentation -
Then all of us were served an elaborate menu and we continued the discussions, feedbacks, conversations over the refreshments. Everyone was busy sharing ideas... giving feedbacks... appreciating speakers... relishing food & missing a few regulars who were not there for this particular meet.
And finally at the very end a few classic Bookoholics portraits were shot !!!
And so ended another meet at Bookoholics... Connecting like minded people together... providing an opportunity and a platform for members to come forward and express themselves... being a bridge between members of various age groups, various back grounds, various professions but just one common gene binding them... their love of books.
