Siliguri my birth place.Siliguri-‘The Gateway of North East India’ because of its  geostrategic importance as it connects three borders-Bangladesh, China, and Nepal.Now Siliguri has achieved the position of second largest city in the West Bengal with a population of 1,22,0275 (according to 2001 census) Going further ahead Siliguri is now considered as one of the fastest growing city in the country.

On 14th October Siliguri hosted the 3rd Tweetup in West Bengal.There was two Tweetup in Kolkata before this-1st-21st July: MCD, Parkstreet .2nd-27th October: Madox on nabomi.

For my friends who don’t know what Tweetup is?Its a meet up for the Twitter users(Tweeps) from a same geographic location to discuss stuffs and to have a hangout

Our place of Tweetup was Cosmos,CCD.Me and Bastab(@bassyc) were planning to organize a tweetup in Siliguri and that came true with six tweeps attending the tweetup.Siliguri with not a huge amount of Twitterholic people we are so happy with the outcome.I know one day will come when Siliguri people will be more in twitter and Tweetups will be a frequent thing so we Tweeps were proud of the fact that we were present in the 1st#Siliguritweetup.In Tweetup we discussed stuffs like Blogging, GoogleWave, Silverlight, individual twitter experience and for new Tweeps out there-few Twitter tips and what you can extract from Twitter.That day we came to each other very well and was a great hangout.The first product of that Tweetup is DENKEN-my all new blog and I would like to thank Bastab for this.We considered that as a successful Tweetup as Tweeps enjoyed a lot.

    Yes I remember asking @aritrasen one fine morning on twitter that “Dude what is this ‘tweetup’?” And he was so passionate about it that he provided links to explain me how the whole process goes! At that very moment I was damn Sure this guys gonna bring his dream of #siliguritweetup to reality… and he did!

    Well I kept following his tweets and i noticed there were few problems midway in trying to persuade the other tweeps into getting into this #tweetup. But this guy was hell bent on getting the things worked out! And i am so happy that finally 14th October made it happen…

    I can very well be sure of the fact that this tweetup will start a trend which will be difficult to resist for Siliguri people. And I am confident that next time more and more people will be joining this tweetup!

    Aritra, you have done a fine work here with the blog… very well written. and the background interface is also nice. And what brings your blog closer to my heart is the Title which you have written in German… which as u know now i love the language…

    Keep It Coming BRO…

    Both of us have a common frnd. ,thats why we know each other and our frn.ship continues.If u never met him but if u r a mature person then by talking with him and viewing his profile ,his view to represent things ,his culture u definitely come to d conclusion that he is a very good boy.i am not using any other adjective,coz its need not…
    And his face book picture infront of a black board not only seems to be very good but tells also that he is a studious boy, a least selecting such pic. for face book tells that.
    I wish him all the best for his coming future.
