I MET ROGER WATERS!!! Hotel Adventure

Now the fun begins...........

Other than us there was another group in the hotel waiting to meet Roger, they were kids from Delhi all wearing the Roger Waters concert t-shirts. There was a wall outside Vista where I wrote "In the memory of Roger Keith Syd Barret - neo (my cell number)" Well I though Roger would read it and get touched and call me! Yea wateva....

At the hotel we hit this restaurant Vista. Sangita then found out that Rogers in Suite 2021 on Floor 21. Pratik and Smta head to his room while we're waiting in Vista. No luck as theres no answer to the repeated door bells. Then we get a news input of Roger being in Masala Bay. We abandoned Vista headed one floor below to the first floor to masala bay. At the lift we came acroos Arjun Rampal once, more and just before the doors shut Sahej yelled "I C U SUX!!".

At Masala bay we were refused a table and even refused to enter and meet Roger. Basically the staff was politely asking us to Fuck off!! Later security asked us to clear the floor. We managed to get Mr. Snows autograph while leaving the floor. We then accumulated on the stairs near the lift lobby on 1st floor. We were even shooed away from the stairs "Gheun tak!". Wateva...

Sahej, me and Pratik are now camping on secong floor stairs. From the mirror we can see the first floor lift lobby. Sangita, Smita are stationed outside Roger Waters suite. The delhi boys are garrisoned on the other side of 1st floor waiting for Roger to exit. through these postions we waited and accumalted the entire bands signature, include Roger Waters's son, Harry Waters.

Just when we were getting this one guitarists signature we heard some noise. We all looked towards Masala Bay and saw his HIGHNESS Roger Waters. He wa walking towards the lift lobby. He flanked by two uber-super-sexy-hot chicks with two rows of security guards holging hands and walking ahead of him. But Roger said in his British accent "A'll sign aa few o thaissee". Everyone was crowding him lke crazy and he stricly asked everyone to queue. Delhi Boys, Pratik, Sahej, all got signatures including some druggies who appeared at the last moment from nowhere.

So then we click a picture at our watch tower.

Oh it feels so great to meet the greatest and the most artistic Rockstar EVER!!!

Sangita, Smita didn't get his autograph as they were waiting outside his room. They could
nt get through the security and didn't get anything. We later met this Bangladeshi group9which really had this hot chick) who were dining at Vista. They came up to us and asked if we were waiting for Roger, and we just flashed our posters. Poor guys.......Roger even spoke about them on stage saying fans have come from so far away.

Now I was parading the poster at 2 am around the entire hotel. I was holding the poster like I am holding in the picture added with a impish gleaming smile. I flash the posters in the face of the stringent staff that didn't let us through. I was coming in the way of random foriergners from Rogers crew and flashing the poster. I was irritating the hell out of everyone. Then we were dancing at the drive-in security cam. Showing them the finger and freaking out like mad.

We also met Iranian Oil Minister son, Hirad. He attended the concert an was jealous of my poster.

BTW I have the best signed poster. IN SEXY SILVER MARKER!!!

Where theres a will theres a way!
