Lucknow-Kanpur Read Meet Report

Hello all!!!

The Kanpur Lucknow read-meet was the smallest read-meet, but also one of the largest. It had a surprisingly international character. There were four (almost) real participants, five phone-in participants, and a number of submissions by others were read out.

The meet was great great great fun.

Of the real participants, four is actually an exaggeration, for at any given point of time, there were only three. To start, Natasha the lucknavi chikan a.k.a the "rogA yoga", Dan the danish, and Amit the khuTo. Half way through, we were joined by Danish's brother Banish, but Danish himself had to leave then (he had a train to catch for Delhi), so we were left with Banish for the rest of the evening. In between some of Dan's friends called - Ritu and Pragya - the latter we even converted to a read-in participant...

We can't say it enough. The read-meet was great fun!

Watermelons - yes. Tunda ki kabab from Lucknow - yes. Cold Gazpacho soup, pasta with veggies in white sauce - yes. Peach tea, Camomile. Yes.

The read-meet ended with a cup of bailey's, served AKN style in earthen khullars...

We can't say it enough. The read-meet was great fun!

Hi Khuto,
You and Natasha pulled off a great coup there ! Only four guys and five phone-ins, amazing...this sets a new precedent for caferati readmeets, I am sure.
How did you incorporate the sound bytes? This is news to me.
BTW my story was entitled "The Licking" -don't see how the title got chopped off. Please add it in the Notes and Writing, if you can.
Would love to attend the next one!
cheerz!
