About the Workshop:
It was a very interactive session with such a nice audience . I started the session by introducing myself and then the 3 Indian Google Student Ambassadors(GSA) whom i invited to workshop.Then Manoj Bingi(GSA-IIT Delhi) started the session with  Google Docs and then ended with a Hand-on Session (Demonstration) .
The Hand-On session was the best part as all  people practiced what they have been presented before on their PCs.They were excited,very excited.We were moving around their desks to provide any assistance they need.

A brief presentation about Google Drive was the 2nd session and was done by Pranshoo Srivastava (GSA-IEC College of Engineering and Technology) which was accompanied by an awesome and interactive hands-on session.

At the End of session when we asked “What is Google? Is it only a search Engine?” then we got such nice answers: “Google is everything”, “1..2…3…Google” , “Google is Everywhere” 
As we moved more closer to our last part of Google Hangout which were handled by Pranshoo Srivastava and Jas Singh Bhasin(GSA-Amity University) ,we've noticed that the audience were more interested on demo session of Hangout when at the same time all 4 of us done a Hangout in class with some Audience by inviting them also to have Experience the Hangout.
Many questions were asked by the audience and we also tried to give them best answers we had. It was a very healthy session with such a nice audience from different parts of the world.I learned alot  from this international community and also from newly met friends whom we made a great team with a such a short time,i am talking about these 3 Indian GSAs.
