The countdown has begun! 11 days to our first fundraiser!
Its so much easier being part of the audience. One gets to amble in, be ushered to a seat, kick back and groove to the music. The organisers on the other hand, running back and forth like plucked chickens.
We finalized our design – the posters look lovely! Thank you Gunjan! I’m not entirely sure how were going to resize the prints in order to mount flexes though. Err. Oh and our website is up! (which is how you’re reading this).
It took 93840985 years (Chaudhry is techincally challenged) but I think it was worth all the waiting. Thank you Gaurav! So many people to thank for their support.
We’re trying to wrap our heads around production right now – Stage set up, light, sound, ushering, registration tables – the whole works. You’d think we’d be more organised seeing as we’ve been doing this for nearly 7 years now. But no, the last minute frantic dashing around is a staple feature every time. Its part of the fun though.
Our ticket sales are going through the roof! Which is strange because we haven’t started our publicity yet..hm. Noones complaining though, maybe we’ll finally get salaries! My life consists of running from one meeting to the other. Its begining to weigh heavy on my wallet and college attendance. The sound vendor, car rental, Kishan ji at the Ashoka, oh crap I just realised I haven’t set that meeting up.
Purple remains in an intergral part of the entire event as we try and bring it all together. Its doubly difficult without having her around to lighten the tension with a wholly inappropriate joke, or insert a logo onto the poster last minute, vowing not to do it the next time around “no poster for your next event” etc etc, knowing full well, she’d be doing it again the next night. Its just how she was, patient and gracious with all our tardy behaviour. The concert is a dedication to her, and her spirit, and we hope you all turn up to share that moment with us.
I’m over Chaudhry’s word limit. Sorry mom. More soon! Wish us luck!
