Birth of WL !! - how the lounge was created ....

It was 17th July,2008.I was enjoying my vacations after the completion of my Semester 6 exams.Exams got over on 21st June and my college was re opening on 21st July,2008.I was sitting all alone at home with nothing to do.I always used to be busy with some work .After completing my "The Fourth Seat" series,I planned to do something new.Yes,something different.I started with my "Office,Love" series.It was 4 pm when I got up from sleep.Went to sisters place and came back home at 5pm.I logged into my PC at 5:15pm,.I could not find any one online on my GTalk.Oh yes,Asbah came online at sharp 5.24 pm on 17th July,2008.

This is what we spoke.

  10. That seems really incredible :)

    Way 2 go, i suppose this is the learning curve for the lounge before getting into a dedicated place.

    That must have been beyond expectations i suppose :)
