Hey Mi Fans
And Hello to Mi Fans from Bhubaneswar
Recently we had our 3rd Mi Fan Club meet at Bhubaneswar on 23rd October at Pathani Samanta Planetarium, Bhubaneswar.
It was the most exciting of all.
Apart from the venue, that was planetarium, the other reason for excitement is that it was attended by some of the most experienced and most genuine Mi Fans of our Bhubaneswar Fan Club. It was such an amazing experience to meet them all and get to know about their experiences and views about Mi and MIUI.
A few words about Pathani Samanta:
Pathani Samanta born Samanta Chandra Sekhar Harichandan Mahapatra; 13 December 1835 - 11 June 1904) was an Indian astrologer and scholar who measured the distance from earth with a bamboo pipe and many other traditional instruments that he built. This earned him the "Mahamahopadhyaya" award in 1893. His observations, research and calculations were compiled into a book "Siddhanta Darpana" which has verses written in Sanskrit in Odia script.
The timing for our meet was 3 PM. By the time I reached the venue, our dearest member @pulak had already reached the venue. He welcomed me there and we exchanged greetings. Soon @Harish Mohanty arrived. And also Abhishek. He were joining us for the first time. So we welcomed him and got to know about him.
We all started taking pics then.

Unfortunately, the museum part of the planetarium was going some renovation work. So it was closed for public.
But the show was quite good and we enjoyed a lot. The theatre's screen was actually a dome. And there were projectors installed at different corners. So it was all a 3D experience and amazing.
Capturing pictures were not allowed inside but we managed to get one only.

After that, some of us departed because of some work. The rest, we decided to have a quick snack.
Gup Chup or Paani Puri is a very popular snack all over the India. So we decided to have some of it. It was tasty!!!
After that, we parted our ways by saying goodbyes.

It was a very pleasant meet for me and indeed the best one. I got to meet some of the Mi Fans from our club. We generally interact through Telegram IM App, so meeting them in the real world was such a good feeling.
At last, we become good friends and promised to meet in the next meet soon.
Thanks to Pulak bro and Abhisek bro for his pics.
