Kolkata Bloggers Meet 2014!

And the day arrived when I met the most enthusiastic, joyful, pretty, courteous and lovely ladies.
Yes finally met Kolkata Bloggers and it was such a delight. 
For all the people who are not following me on Instagram, here is a glimpse of how the evening looked like.
After seeing a couple of pictures of the Restaurant Jhaalfrezi in Kolkata,  from the bubbly and adorable Soumi from "Sold for Shoes", and the very gentle and gracious lady Anupriya from the famous "Howrah Bridge",  I asked  if we could meet there. And we did. We will come back to the details of the Restaurant later.
An evening with endless laughs, pictures, scandalizing moments and discussion on men, started with a little talk on my countless visits to Kolkata and how calories scared Soumi Paul. Oh! But she loves to click calorie full food. Once, very happy and much excited Pooja Das from " Dailifestyle " entered, we could not stop talking about Gangtok (my city
J) for a bit. Soon the room was filled with silence and overly twinkling eyes, when lady with most cool hair Debiparna from " Fly Songbird " started to talk. And Debi, I hope to get some details on my next visit (winks eyes with a smile). I did not get much chance to speak to very lovely and simple Aniesha from "Aniesha's Musings" and Swarnali from "Dreams and Drama". Hope we could interact more and share some moments together. Initially me and lady with those pretty eyes Shayoni from "Sweet and Bitter Blog" did not interact much, but we landed with some good laughs together. 

As Anupriya says, if you do not Blog you do not know what friends are you missing. Blogging has definitely made me meet the most amazing people. Bangalore Bloggers meet in 2012 was an experience in itself, and now Kolkata Meet 2014 has added another chapter in my life. Knowing that, I would be settling in Kolkata, you girls are my hope to survival.

Coming to the place "Jhaalfrezi" it is beautiful. I was in complete love with every corner of the place. Fairy lights, Walls with quirky messages made me fell in love with that place. For you Kolkataites and people planning to visit the city, It’s a must visit place. Their Jhaalfrezi special drink with Expresso, fresh coconut, choco chips and honey is a drool over. You can avoid their lebu cha though, Debiparna can explain you better on that. 
I had an absolute delight and an experience meeting these lovely, independent and upbright ladies, and will continue to do so, on my every visit. So let’s stop the talking, and visit some pictures from the evening.

A picture that defines too many things! My favorite part from the evening.  Anu I am proud of you for capturing this moment.

Highlights from the evening:
* Excuse me, one Vada Pao with no Butter* courtesy – Soumi Paul (sorry for spilling in too much details) You know I love you.
* Debi’s reaction when those uneducated and severely desperate men look at you.  (You should ask her about it, when you meet her in personal).
* The Thaukuria story. Anu will explain you guys better on that. And it’s a story you cannot miss.

Thank you Ladies for an amazing evening.

What I wore:

Jumpsuit – Thrifted (Gangtok)

Hope you guys had a good time reading the post.

With Love,
Pen Twister.


  1. Okay, after a chuckle or two remembering that day, here are a few lessons for your future-
    i)We are Kolkatans and so would be you.
    ii)The uncool place is Dhakuria. If you say Thakuria, the Tagore fans might be a wee bit upset. :-P

  2. The "dhaaaakuriaa" story was epic! And so was the vada pao with extra virgin oil! And Nikita..loved meeting you! We should catch up real soon!

  3. Fun, fun times!! Welcome to the gang, Nikita!!! :*

    And yes, I'm always up for orating the "Dhakuria" story to all & sundry!! :D
