First Delhi meetup of RCB fan club
On a day when the sun played hide and seek with the clouds, a few RCBians decided to venture out for a meetup while some others played 'hide and seek' only.
I could hardly wait for Sunday to come. First RCB Fan Meetup in Delhi! Wow!
This was the day, I had been planning for a while and there was going to
be a lot of fun.
Proudly wearing my RCB jersey, I reached the venue and waited for the two
dozen odd people, who had confirmed their participation.
Life, however, always throws up twists, just like any silver screen
blockbuster and it surely did at that moment too.
I realized that it was past noon, the time designated for the meetup to
start, but, there was only me and a lot of curious passerbys.
'Traveling thirty kms and finding only myself to accompany me? Is this
how the day is going to turn up?" I was fidgety.

RCB jerseys generated among the Sunday crowd.

quizzing. I hurled some really difficult questions at the fellows, who
surprisingly, fended them off like Rahul Dravid would have tapped down a Shoaib
Jayaprakash, a new entrant to RCB fan club’s Delhi bunch, surprised us
all with his knowledge about the game and he duly won the quiz. Second place in
the quiz went to Rishabh. Thereafter, since the weather was taking a turn for
the worse and we didn’t fantasize getting stuck in the infamous traffic jams,
we had to end the meeting at that point itself. We all pledged to meet again
soon and to make RCB’s Delhi
fan club, bigger, better and more active.
