The Best of both Worlds!
Hi RCB Janta,
I have been told to write a new blog introducing myself to every one of you out there. So here I am, trying to write one.
Hi I’m Ushma, a diehard RCB fanatic. Have been following RCB from 2008. It started off with an obsession for Rahul Dravid and carried forward with the years. The colors of the team started to flow through my veins every time I watched the team play. I can proudly say I bleed “Red and Gold.” There was a time when I almost gave up on the team and stopped following them much but then community managers like me (Natasha and Nidhi at that time) got me engaged with more things by making me a fanatic fan.
One of the simple and best reasons I followed RCB before was because I knew it for a fact that no matter what happens, the team loves their fans more than anything and it showed with the frequent meet-ups with the fans and Fanatic Fans Challenges and what not! I guess that’s more than anything a fan needs: to be close to the team they follow and to be a step closer to the players that anybody else.
Crazy fans like me and you can explain my point better. I have been a fan and I will always be a fan first no matter what though this is my new life on the other side of the coin, basically I have the best of both worlds and in an awesomely amazing way. I was a FFC 3 finalist and FFC 4 winner, a fanatic fan and now the Community manager. I’m a photographer by profession and a fanatic by heart.
In fact the other day, I was sitting right there in the office watching the Gaylestorm and Kohlibash thrashing Delhi Daredevils in Delhi in a must win match, the first inning was over and it was time for me to leave, but I was sitting right there ten minutes after the first innings, awestruck about what just happened, Gayle just was amazing out there with thirteen maximums and 7 awesome boundaries and a century helping RCB become the highest scorer of the tournament and getting himself an orange cap, that was one moment felt god! this is my first day at work and the best match we ever played.
I love RCB no matter win or lose, there’s a sense of pride that I feel whenever I say “I’m an RCB fanatic; there’s nothing that can stop me to say that out loud and change it.” There are few things I love and RCB basically, undoubtedly tops the list.
Simple funda, ups and down happen, but always remember RCB never gives up. The storm arrives and thrashes everything that comes in front. And with the last win I think we are unstoppable.
From now on I will be connecting with you guys more and more in every possible way, you have any issues shout out to me and I will try and sort it in any way I can.
He, along with the fab members of the Fan Advisory Board, plot new schemes to engage with fans and trouble shoot their problems.
