I went to the IndiBlogger meet today at ITC Grand Chola hotel, Chennai. This is a newly opened super-luxury 5-Star hotel in Chennai with 600 rooms (including 78 serviced apartments), at Guindy, Chennai. You can visit their (above linked) website to get an idea of the facilities/amenities offered.
I was impressed with their green initiatives. The ITC group has a wind-farm in Salem, Tamil Nadu which makes more electricity through renewable energy than what is consumed by the hotel. That’s an excellent initiative, that too by a luxury hotel to reduce their carbon footprint. Also, they have an excellent rain water harvesting system and recycle water in order to save water. Their other green initiatives are equally impressive.
I leave you all with some photos taken at the ITC Grand Chola, Chennai.
Of course, I had a lot of fun meeting other energetic bloggers from Chennai. It feels good to go to a meet like this once in a year (thanks to IndiBlogger) and meet some like-minded people. A lot of activities were focused on Twitter and the whole world seems to have taken a fancy to the shorter 140 character updates (and single-click Facebook). I wonder why I have not taken a fancy to the micro-blogging platforms, as much as I like and cherish my long-format blog! Are you guys active on Twitter?
