Ever wondered what you get when you bring three swashbuckling, awesomely cute and good looking hosts namely celebrity chef Vikas Khanna, Tech guru Rajiv Makhani and gaming king of India Vishal Gondal together on one stage – Indiblogger Nokia Lumia Meet 2014- session 2 – a meet that is little spicy, sprinkled with tongue in cheek humour and dollops of laughter! Yes, the fun began right from the moment we were seated and introductions began, as a masked man disguised as celebrity hosts stepped on to the stage when their name was announced creating a ripple of laughter amongst the audience. And when original hosts stepped onto the stage they surely upped the laughter quotient by their tongue in cheek humour and straight-face jokes that sent audience onto a roller coaster of laughter.
Initially hesitant about attending the meet, as it was a techie meet and I am technology challenged, I was glad I attended it. Rajiv Makhani started the programme with teasing Vikas Khanna, as Mr Khanna earlier had asked Makhani, quite innocently of course, as to what he was doing at a food meet after all it did talk about apps and that in a chef parlance translated to appetisers. And Vikas Khanna in response to Rajiv Makhani’s what is chef doing at a tech meet said, “I am a chef, a Punjabi and I am besharam, so here I am.” The light banter between these two hosts was indeed pleasing and kept all of us at the edge of our seats with laughter through the entire meet.
Of course, when one of the hosts is a chef App is bound to become Appetiser with ideas becoming spices that add flavour to the life of a consumer after all. Anyway in the midst of all these light hearted banter, and teasing Nokia MD Mr P Balaji talked about the apps for windows phone. He said htat currently there are more than 200,000 apps on windows phone and with the new show Your Wish is my App – starting on NDTV – we are hoping to see a steady increase in number of apps for windows phone.
Mr Balaji said that Nokia wants to be the brand that will fulfil all your app wish so get going and let those ideas pour in and we saw some really great ideas related to women security, civic issues, and some apps that were targeted in helping an individual to his/her maximum capacity.
After a mid way through the meet the hosts announced that all of us have a chance to be a part of the show if our app idea is selected so here is my app idea: Since I love writing about art my app idea is bound to be related to art. I would like to have an app that would let me know whether the tall claims of original paintings by celebrity artists made by gallery or art auctioning companies are true or are they just trying to pass the fake works as original.
And with this app idea I went in for dinner and some more talks with each of the hosts.
