I am sorry to say that astrologically violence against women will increase in India in the next 7 to 10 years. For now I don't want to get into the reasoning part - as it might not be in synch with what people want to hear. So guys - as a father, husband, brother and sons it is your duty to safeguard the women in your lives.
And now comes the Masterclasses by the very Gods - Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan. The tickets again were nominally priced, but the seats weren't limited. One thirds of the people who had bought the tickets had to stand in spite of paying the same amount of money. And there were no seat numbers allocated - the pushy people made their way to the front and the losers stood at the back. And there were no elevations for the seats provided, meaning if a taller person sits in front you - you are fucked.
Let me start off with the positives first. Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris, and Matt Preston are one of the finest and kindest people you will ever meet. They are awesome in real life as well and are all excited and ever ready to help, assist and entertain you. Now that being said...here is the story of the event and my experience with it.
It was a 2-day Food Festival, which took place in two venues simultaenously - a 5-star hotel and an elite mall which were relatively situated close to each other. And of course it was a paid event, and the tickets were decently priced.
