As Santosh and Mayur cannot make to this event, Santosh asked me if i am available on that particular date to speak on Mozilla’s Mission, Projects and Firefox OS. As a mozillian, i always love to speak on mozilla’s mission, openness and projects. I accepted this invitation from Santosh and Planned to speak on Mozilla at Indore Institute of Science and Technology, Indore. I am thankful to Santosh, Mayur and Rishav for giving me chance to speak there on behalf of Mozilla.
Santosh connected me to the local Organizer Shubham Geete who helped me for the next tasks for the event.
It was Sep 5 2014, my tickets got booked and i started in the morning at 5:00 A.M. to the Bangalore Airport. It took almost 10-12 hours of journey to reach the awesome place Indore. I was really feeling refreshed when i stepped out of the Indore Airport. Then, in no time, i reached hotel, got fresh and met Shubham in the evening. We have sorted out the plan and proceedings of the event and checked whether if anything is missing in the event.
