Tata Hexa Experience - Bangalore 2016

I have been blogging and tweeting actively for over 3 years now and have covered many events in this time, so invitation to attend Tata Hexa event in Bangalore came like any normal invite for me. I was excited for it like for any other event but after going through all details I was bit more excited especially with the promise of getting  chance for “Off Road drive experience”.


On 24th December as scheduled I was there along with many fellow bloggers and the place was full with Car enthusiasts of Bangalore who came at venue to experience new Tata Hexa. After doing with formalities of registration we were let loose to roam around the venue and feel the vibe there. The event had different Tata Unit stalls like Croma,Tata Motor Finance, Tata Value Homes and at the center of venue was the brand new Tata Hexa. This black car was attraction point of everyone and all of them got opportunity to see the car from inside as well. From inside Hexa really looked spacious enough for a family including good space at back for luggage and from outside it looked really decent.


There was Digital Zone where one could experience Tata Hexa car inside out including all the features just by sitting on a computer and also Tata has launched “Tata Hexa” app with which anyone can see all feature on their phone. One can see specification of everything from minor to major related to car and also can operate those to see how it works, for example one can use Light option to change color of light inside car and immediately the backseat light will become of that selected color.

There was also kids zone to make it a perfect family outing. There were few games for kids to make them feel part of the event and next to that was Pet Adoption drive where stray dogs were put for adoption as a noble cause and that place was getting many eyeballs of pet lovers.

One of the best part of this event was great music being played continuously with different singers and band performing. We spent more than 1 hours sitting there and just listening to some melodious singing.


Then it was time for stuff that I have been waiting for and that was the crux of Hexa Experience event, It was time to go for “Off Road drive” experience in new Tata Hexa Car. When I had filled the declaration form while registering I was asked to sign a bond that if something goes wrong Tata Motors wouldn’t be responsible and as soon as I reached by side of ground where the drive was happening I felt that the form filling was genuine, yes the drive looked really risk prone and tough from outside and it was not for everyone. 

Glimpse of  Off road drive experience
There was inclined hill like ramp, a muddy road full of water, driving over Stairs, driving on 30 degree side inclined road and driving on rough surface made with tyres and bricks. If I have to describe this experience in one word then it must be “Thrilling”.  Driver was expert enough to drive through these placed obstacles while explaining us qualities and uniqueness of Tata Hexa car. While sitting inside the disturbance was not much felt as Car has been designed keeping such tough terrain in mind. The suspension, the seating space and the height of car was good enough to make traveler comfortable while driving on any type of road or even off road. Here is the video of off road experience in new Tata Hexa.



Overall the event was somewhat different from other events that I had attended including some of car companies. Getting personal experience of Car’s capability and uniqueness made it exciting, so if you love going on trips with family then this Tata Hexa car is for you and if you and your family has adrenal rush then it is must have car for you.

#BergerXP Indiblogger Meetup - Change the way you Paint

We all love painting, don’t we? Even if we suck in it, given a brush and few colors we would paint something which would definitely look colorful. Well, painting on art paper is much easier than painting a house in terms of effort, precision and way of painting. We all have witnessed the pain of our house getting painted once in few years. It is such cumbersome, time taking and get- dirty process that many of us detest to go for painting for our house.

Berger Paints, one of India’s leading paint brand has decided to solve this problem for us with its Express Painting feature. We bloggers of Bengaluru were invited for meetup with Express Painting team of Berger Paints hosted by Indiblogger on 10th December to get to know more about Express Painting and the event was full of informative session and painting related activities.

The meetup started with some nice lunch along with networking opportunity for bloggers and then it was time for the real stuff for which we were invited. Indiblogger team introduced few of the bloggers randomly by identifying them with their Twitter accounts to make moment lighter before Berger Paint team starts their presentation.

Representing Berger Paints team was Chandranath Banerjee – Service Head – Express Painting and he explained about how this idea of Express Painting came into consideration and how they went ahead with it when no other competitor was willing to try it. As any new idea is just a thought to solve an existing problem, so was Express Painting which was to solve the problem of normal house painting process which is messy, tiring and very slow.

About Express Painting:

Express painting uses skilled painters along with specifically designed tools to paint houses and buildings and the best thing about this is that it is cost effective. The main moto of “Express painting” is to make panting less hazardous, faster, cleaner and better. As per Chandranath Banerjee, the amount of time it takes to paint anything with express painting is 40 to 50% less than what it takes in usual way of painting and in this way it also reduces the labor cost which is major factor in deciding cost of entire painting process. For specific purposes Express Painting team uses different kind of tools like SANDING MACHINE, MULTIPURPOSE MIXER, AUTO ROLLER, HIGH PRESSURE WASHER and AIRLESS PAINT SPRAYER.

Different tools that are used for Express Painting 

Some of the benefits of Express Painting in their own words:
  • 40 percent faster than traditional painting
  • Trained painters for efficient and better painting
  • Cutting-edge vacuum suction-enabled sanding machines keep your house dust-free
  • Better coverage and smoothness guaranteed each time
  • All these benefits and more offered at no additional cost

Activities:

Like many other Indiblogger meetups, this was filled with activities too and this time it was time for some hard work along with the fun part. The first activity was to smoothen a rough surface coated with some white paint using scrubbers. This activity was to make us feel how hard and time taking is the manual old process of painting and to our surprise we did finish it in quick time :)


The second activity was to do some painting on art paper using any of the themes and our team painted on theme “Colors of India” and it was appreciated by both Berger Paints and Indiblogger team. The painting was done using paints and colors of brand Berger Paints and we were given a brief about how to mix water, paint and colors to make it smooth for painting, the same way experts at Berger Paints do. 



The event ended with winners getting cool vouchers like in any other Indiblogger meetup and thanks to Berger Paints team and Indiblogger team for smooth conduct of entire event and it was a great way to spend weekend for all of us. All tweets related to event can be found on twitter at #BergerXP and don't forget to checkout this really funny TV ad of Express Painting.
