Nothing is big or small it’s we who make things big or small. It’s our imagination, innovation, handwork and determination which makes thing big.
HiveIndia@Kgp was earlier supposed to be a small webmaker event in any school. But then I thought why only one school, everyone should get equal opportunity to celebrate Christmas day with Mozilla. “So then I landed with HiveIndia@Kgp”.
This was the first event in Kharagpur and in West Bengal with mixture of technical, cultural and social events.
This event was supposed to start on 10AM 22nd December but it was started two days back when I was coming to catch my train at Howrah Station Kolkata. I was overloaded with purchased items for this event one security guard caught me and asked me to pay fine for carrying extra luggage. I just explained him about what the things are for. So after listening he got excited and asked me to give him something for his son, I just took out one Santa Claus and handed him.
His reply ”My son will really enjoy this Christmas”
My reply “This is Mozilla’s innovation and we are proud to be part of it”
