Republic Day Lalbaug Flower Show

So there was a lot of crowd. We should have figured considering traffic was made one way outside Lalbaug, and there was a sign asking people to park in Shantinagar bus station. Entry was 50 bucks for adults, 10 bucks for kids. We went in, and the show was basically a ton of flower foam into which people had stuck flowers. It was in the shape of the red fort, and there was a statue of liberty for some reason, probably because Obama was at the parade just then.
The funny thing was that the announcements were made to safeguard the people against thieves, and they were listing out the types of thieves. So purse thieves, chain thieves, mobile thieves and children thieves were about.



Then we took a walk around Lalbaug, went right around the lake, and then on to church street for some cofee at cofee house, walked a bit to Garuda mall, found the third book in the Mars series at Blossom (so now I have two, need one more).

Gamer's Connect #3

So registered for this event randomly, went with a friend. We had a little trouble finding the building on google maps, but then it was right above the area we were standing in, we just had to look up. We spectated a DOTA2 game for some time, while waiting for the event to begin. It was a small but focussed group. Was fun. There was a talk by nVidia. Tech like Shadowplay, Maxwell, some vfx using gameworks were covered. There was something about DSR, dynamic super resolution which apparently renders 4k content on non 4k monitors, though not sure how that works. And then there was a talk by MSI, who had got some gear along for people to check out. There was a presentation. Interesting looking micro ATI card in there, which looked like a gfx card cut in half. Then they gave away a few goodies and delicious sandwiches and coke for everyone.

There was this sign. LOL. 

Oh and I got a mouse just because I was the only game dev in the room. By game dev I mean I made a small game :P
