Unexpected Celebration #GameofBlogs

It’s a WOW post!!!


It was one bright and sunny morning when I saw this post in Blogadda, #CelebrateBlogging!! The curious me stepped in and found about the Game of Blogs- a never-before seen-thought-happened event in the Indian Blogosphere. All I had to do was register and then opens the world to CONNECT| CREATE | COMPETE .


A golden opportunity where teams will be formed and weave a story for three weeks, with an elimination sword hanging right above us as each week ends.  A fighting chance for the newbies to be an author and get published. A fair shake among the veteran bloggers.

Doesn’t that sound exciting? Take a look at the revered jury panel– few of the big shots in English literature.


It’s an Unexpected Celebration- to put on the creative cap, collaborate and tell a story through a team of ten bloggers for 3 weeks, on same characters. At the end, the best is published as a book by Blogadda!

Here are the characters:

  1. Shekhar Dutta – Stay home Dad, freelance writer, Hindu, Stays in Mumbai
    Description – French beard, bald, average height, fair, thin specs, lean, wears t-shirt & track pants generally, ever smiling.
  2. Tara Dutta – Shekhar’s wife, Media professional , career oriented woman.
    Description – Fair, short hair, tall, prim & proper dressed, wear formals & high heels.
  3. Roohi Dutta – 9 years girl, Shekhar and Tara’s daughter.
    Description – Fair, healthy, notorious, 2 ponytail, wear frill frocks.
  4. Jennifer Joseph –  Photographer, Christian, Stays in Kochi (Kerala)

  5. Cyrus Daruwala – A law student, Stays in Delhi
