Bookoholics "Open Session" with Rujuta Diwekar

Event – Open Session with Rujuta Diwekar

Date - 25th July 2015

Organizers – Bookoholics Group (Surat)

Venue – VR Surat

Must Visit for – Book Lovers, Bibliophiles, Writers, Readers

Today's Bookoholics event with the celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar was  completely different than usual author reader meets. The session was quite an enlightening and interactive one, men and a lot of ladies whole heartedly became a part of this and the meet's success could be measured with over filled chairs and people eagerly hearing her out.

The direction in which the session went was "Breaking the Myths", she made some really bold statements such as "You don't exercise to eat good food, you eat good food to exercise" and thereby giving us power foods (ghee, coconut, rice) which drive us towards exercising not because of the fat quotient but because of their pharmacological effects.


She also emphasized on quitting box food and going back to the basic food habits to keep the stubborn fat away and be fit. She firmly believed that bringing small changes in daily routine could bring big changes in the waist line. Also she launched the Gujarati version of her book "Don't lose out, Work out" wearing a beautiful magenta saree draped in Gujarati style.

This was followed by an open question-answer session which was actually the highlight of the whole meet. Almost people from every age group,  teenage girls, to young ladies to middle aged men asked her questions and clarified their personal queries. All in all every member present there took back quite a lot of knowledge, and will surely be doing some exercise (and not just morning walks) to turn themselves into healthy and fit beings they always desired to be.

Have you ever heard of Instameet? Yes guys, Instagram is more than an app, it’s actually a growing community of people passionate about photography who meet at certain place which has been pre-planned. It offers another opportunity to connect, whether it is to exchange some photography and gramming tips or to explore a great spot and capture in your camera. 

The most interesting part is discovering the faces behind the usernames whom you’ve been knowing through their feed, their pictures and captions. Instagram communities exist in Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Banglore and all around the world. And Surat isn’t staying back too. Instagram Surat (@surat_igers) is a group of Instagrammers in Surat who explore different locations in every Instameet, gradually getting to know each other beyond usernames.

You can also be part of it only by following them on Instagram @surat_igers and join in their Instameets. Instameets occur once or twice in a month and these are one of the mornings that act as refresher for the following days. It is more about enjoying the moments of life and sharing them on Instagram. There is always a unique hashtag for every instameet under which all the pictures are submitted. 

Dabgharwad is a good place for street photography and during Uttarayan season this place is full of colors due to preparations of Maanja (Strings used to fly kites) and kites.
