Roopak at NY: Agencies are f##ked!

So yesterday, I left you at the part where I was ambushed by menacing jetlag (with a baseball bat) as I entered my hotel room.  So here’s what happened after that…My eyes open.  It’s 3 am.  Dammit!  One of the primary reasons I’m here is to network and I’ve just slept through a major party.   But before I have time to ponder too much, Shivani, one of the Producers at Bang Bang wants to know if I can jump on a call with Ogilvy.  Sure, I say.

It’s Monday, October 26, bright and sunny but cold.  I arrived in New York last Thursday but between conference calls and mails, I haven’t been able to get any sleep.  Jetlag is slowly gnawing at my brain plus I’m nursing a terrible cold I caught on the way to a shoot in Delhi on Tuesday morning.  Faint paranoia has me wondering if I’ll become a swine flu suspect at a US airport.
