WebMaker kitchen party in Allahabad

Adding new chapter in the history of Mozilla Community-"WebMaker kitchen party" on 12 Jan 2014 by one of the most enthusiastic and core contributor Shahid Farooqui.
I am very glad and thankful to be invited at the party to share my knowledge and of course every time you teach you learn something new.

The Start-

The start of the party was with the speech of The Most Experienced Mozillian present there Shahid Farooqui who not only shared his experience at the Maker Party at Banglore but also enlightened us with the other Mozilla program like Mozilla FWD etc.He was also the part of Mozilla Summit,2013 and found himself fortunate enough to meet enthusiastic  Mozillians of all ages and shared about the  Mozillians all over the world who are continuously dedicated to work and support for the betterment of web.
In a speech at Mozilla Summit,2013,CA,Mozilla Foundation ChairMitchell Baker said-Learn more-do more-do better.That means there is no age boundation on sharing knowledge,polishing skills and learning new.
Our party included people of all ages ranging from 8-80 years.The experienced internet users were taught not only to use web but to "make web".The novice users who are our "future web makers" and "future internet guards" were taught  about computers, internet and how to use it safely and securely.

Another Step of Change-

After Shahid Farooqui's intoduction to Mozilla Community, Mission and Projects and Fsa Program.Then came the part of FSA's who had to teach and nurture the novice users
-How to make web and how to use it.I was fortunate and overwhelmed to meet new,dedicated and enthusiastic Mozillan's of IIIT-A.Thank you Rahul Ranjan for being there and it was all your support and hard work that made this party soo enjoyable and knowledgeble.Other FSA's from IIIT-A too shared their knowledge that made new Mozillians aware about new Internet Protocols and privacy protection add-os like Persona.They also demonstrated about Computer and its features,search engine,bowser,Thunderbird etc. They were so extraordinary and efficient in their job that the feeling is inexplicable.Webmaker tools-Thimble and Popcorn was shared by me.

Memorable End or a New Beginning-

The new beginning in Allahabad shows that the torch is still being passed from one generation to another and the fire continues to grow further.The drawing competition showed the drawing and designing capabilities among youngsters.
The Mozilla and Webmaker logo was beautifully made by the attendees and the winner was felicitated with cool Mozilla goodies.The energy among them showed that there is still much more in Mozilla to go.
The refreshments were really tasteful.I enjoyed the coffee with other Mozillians including Reps.I had a great time with you all and I enjoyed it the most.
