[dropcap]Z[/dropcap]ica did call us and we rolled our hearts out to the #fantastico weekend in Goa! The Style Symphony got lucky enough to be shortlisted as one among the top 60 bloggers to attend the unveiling of Zica by Tata Motors in Goa. Thanks to IndiBlogger for this one-of-a-kind opportunity #madeofgreat that made us DRIVE through DESIGN and CONNECT. Here’s our share of rewinding memories from this super event that has not only made us go gaga over Zica but experience a world beyond virtual networking.
DAY 1 in Goa: #madeofgreat #Fantastico
Soon after reporting at the IB desk at Goa airport, we all were escorted to the Alila Diwa resort in south Goa. And guess what? We were shaken aback mesmerized with the breathtaking beauty of the ambiance. After registering at the desk, we were handed over the keys of our respective rooms and we were stumped yet again with the rooms that oozed out sheer luxury. All in one, it’s a marvelous place that is deemed to stun you if you plan to have it as your next holiday destination.

Post lunch, we were directed towards the nearby Gonsua beach, the heart of vocational spots. From ‘n’ number of selfies, sporty games, collecting shells, a little savoring and shopping and a multitude of other beach activities, we had innumerable fun that is still etched in my heart.
Followed by the outing, we had a hi-tea session in the evening after getting back from the beach. Fun questionnaire by Anoop made the networking round all the more exciting. We shared random thoughts and got to know each other pretty well. We even gotta create our team for the Zica drive that was supposed to happen on the next day. I was partners with fellow blogger Rajiv Verma and Shayoni and we were allotted the D-9 team with our captain cum driver Rajiv.
We were then taken to another locker-room session that we actually wondered what it could be like. And we were amazed to discover separate personal lockers for all of us especially curated with our names that had super cool Tata Zica merchandise. This was followed by the most exciting part of the event, rolling out none other than Cyrus Sahukar for the briefing of the car along with esteemed members of the Tata Motors team.
Abracadabra & Khul Ja Sim Sim!!! 😛
The first day in Goa came to an end with a lovely cocktail evening and a sumptuous dinner. The cherry on the cake was the karaoke session; needless to say, I was also a part of it among singing talents like Rahul, Blogwati, etc. And what could be better than having performed on 3 karaoke tracks and getting applauded by Cyrus himself along with the audiences. Here’s a glimpse of my live performance on the eve captured by fellow blogger Ankit Chugh. 🙂
Cause All of Me loves whole of #madeofgreat 😀
Loved it for it’s perfection, Zica’s curves & sophistication
DAY 2 in Goa: #madeofgreat #Fantastico
The next morning in Goa was another refreshing one where we had a delicious breakfast after checking out of the hotel. And the moment arrived that we were actually longing for, the ultimate Zica drive. Geared up for another great day ahead in Goa, our share of awesomeness began with a long drive in Zica accompanied by our captain Rajiv.
The espresso Brown and charcoal Grey of Zica stood out against the greenery and added oodles of aplomb to my persona as I got a perfect background to showcase my charm and perfect partners (Zica) to meet up my spark! 🙂
Available in two spectacular shades (the peppy tangerine [diesel] and subtle charcoal grey [petrol] ), we were super excited for our test drive in Zica. Having provided the itinerary, Rajiv drove us to a lane where we came across some breathtakingly beautiful landscapes. All the bloggers were given interesting challenges by fellow bloggers and influencers on Twitter where there were prizes for them if their assigned team. However, due to poor internet connectivity, despite having completed the challenges, we couldn’t tweet our entries in time and thus decided to drop the idea and rather enjoy the ride rather after those unsuccessful trials.
The feel good factor about Zica by Tata Motors!
We found the drive quality to be aptly stable despite the bumpy surface. Having a lot of insights gone into setting the interiors, some of the coolest features attributed to the Zica are, the gear shift indicator, music system, parking ticket holder, iPad/tab holder, chilled glove box, the driver seat-belt reminder, and the dual driving modes of the car. Tata Zica is extremely feature-laden one with its feel far better than its earlier brethren and would surely delight the younger audiences. Also acknowledged as the Zippy car, this model is deemed to turn into a compelling choice for buyers, provided that it is genuinely priced.
Right after the drive, we went back to the hotel, had our lunch and headed towards the airport.
One of the best parts of this trip was meeting some of those awesome bloggers who had been my best buddies virtually. Couldn’t get better than hanging out with those oldies as well as some new friends including Shilpa, Ragini, Divisha, Rajiv and many more. However, knowing Indi forum’s most noteworthy personality, Uttpal K, aka, UK baba was sheer elation. 🙂
We, at The Style Symphony extend our warmest regards to Team IB & Tata for giving us the golden opportunity to interact with fellow bloggers from various parts of the country joining hands together to have an experience that was par excellence. 🙂
