I was excited to sign up for the the BergerXP meet, as IndiBlogger is known for organizing meets that are fun and informative, both.
So on Saturday the 10th of December we reached the venue, Hotel The Lalit Ashok, to meet fellow bloggers and new faces. Pictures were clicked and sound-bites were recorded and our interactions continued over lunch which was scheduled for before the meet.
Post lunch we trooped in to seat ourselves for the meet, which commenced with the crowd favorite Anoop handling the mike, and the crowd, with his trademark sense of humor.
Kartik was next, taking us through ‘exercises’ and ‘tai chi moves’ the imitation of which had us in splits.
The Balloon Game followed, which required us to blow up a balloon, tie it to our leg and do everything we could, in a limited floor space, to avoid our balloon being burst, even as we attempted to burst others balloons. The game proved to be a great ice breaker and set the fun mood for the rest of the meet.
Chandranath Banerjee, Category Head – Interior Wall Paints at Berger Paints,took the stage to educate and enlighten us about the Express painting by Berger and elaborated on the tag line, Faster. Cleaner.Better.
With Express Painting, painting your house is no longer a cumbersome job it is known to have been. Trained Painters use mechanized tools from start to finish. A special mention to the Handheld Sander which is used to scrape the wall off old paint, a cleaner and dust-free process as compared to the sandpaper ‘ghisai’ that has been the norm so far.
Thanks to the expertise and tools, a 30 day paint job can be completed in 20 days.
Post the paint job a supervisor is sent to the house for feedback about the job and and the customer is asked to rate the job done. And this process is available at No Extra Cost!
Contact their call centre by sending an SMS to XP56767 or go to their website to know more.

Next, teams were formed and captains appointed and for the 2rd game we donned face masks and gloves and got together to scrub a rough surface with sandpaper, till it was smooth A judge supervised the teams and we were timed and rewarded for a job well done. A great bonding exercise.
As the meet progressed prizes were being handed out for the best tweet and that bought a big smile on the faces of winners.
The last game had the teams choosing a topic, from the social causes suggested, and using Berger Paints to create art in 20 minutes.
We chose the Environment and this was our painting. Our team, Paint My Love, won the 2nd prize for it and each of us won a gift voucher for the same.
After an afternoon well spent we left the meet with goodie bags from Berger.
