The Founder of Speed Meet calls me from Delhi around 1.40 pm. Initially hesitant, I get a grip on myself and start speaking to the manager and explain him how the event is going to start and how it will proceed and how it will end. The second reason why the event was running smoothly was that there was a genuine interest and demand to meet people. Yet, the pace at which the event moved forward was a pleasure to watch.He wants to know if I am all set to do this and if I need anything from him. I start numbering the tables, once done labelling all the tables, I explain to the manager how he needs to receive the participants and that he should handover the response sheets and the free drink coupon upon entry itself. As I complete the event, I walk out to the terrace area of the pub where my Gurgaon friend is seated. Maybe as the King says in ‘The Alchemist’, if you help others pursue their passion, your passion will be taken care by default.
