Sometimes you start something you never know what turns the story might take. On April 20 a few online friends were holding a Tweeple’s meet in Delhi. This was organised under a social project called “Ek Aur Prayas” (EAP) which takes activities of friends beyond Twitter to ground level actions to help the poor, needy and currently the drought hit in Maharashtra. The people behind the activity are @Jemin-P, @AnilKohli, @ASRaghunath, @SureshNakhua and some more. The idea they share at these meetings is that members of the Social Media can go beyond Twitter or Facebook and help on the ground.
For the event I had offered my book “Social media as watchdog” for purchase by those interested but my friends gave me a pleasant surprise. They organised a formal launch of the book by prominent journalist Mr. Kanchan Gupta and lawyer Ms. Meenakshi Lekhi. Here is a great pic from the event with the two releasing my book.
Thanks to my friends who organised this and to Mr. Kanchan Gupta and Ms. Meenakshi Lekhi. For a small writer in a small corner this is an unexpected honour. It’s a moment I will treasure all my life.
