Zoho CRM: Schedule a Meeting using Deluge

Following on my article of creating a task using Zoho Deluge and scheduling a call using Zoho Deluge, here's an article on creating a Meeting or an Event using Zoho Deluge.

Because at time of print, I couldn't find that much information on how to build up a JSON request to create a meeting (previously known as Event) in Zoho CRM. Here's a quick snippet of code to remind me.

Similar to how to create a call or task, but with some variation:
// initialize
m_ScheduleMeeting = Map();
// specify parent module
// all day meeting
// meeting owner/host ID (can see any record related to this meeting)
// related to what (in this example, a lead record but can be almost any kind of record)
// the subject
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Event_Title","TEST Consultation: Call with TEST LEAD");
// the description
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Description","More info / agenda");
// the type
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Type","Prospective Meeting");
// the meeting location
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Venue","Online Meeting");
// the start time
// the end time
// recurring pattern (this one sets to everyday from today)
m_Pattern = Map();
// send invitations to participants?
// set participants (contact, email, user, or lead)
m_Participant = Map();
m_Participant.put("type", "lead");
m_Participant.put("participant", 98765432109876543);
l_Participants = List();
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Participants", l_Participants);
// with a reminder 5 minutes before (eg. "10 mins", "1 hrs")
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Remind_At","5 Mins");
// the meeting status
m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Status","Not Started");
// send request and create record
r_CreateMeeting = zoho.crm.createRecord("Events",m_ScheduleMeeting);
// output response (for debugging purposes)
info r_CreateMeeting;
  1.  // 
  2.  // initialize 
  3.  m_ScheduleMeeting = Map()
  4.  // 
  5.  // specify parent module 
  6.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("$se_module","Leads")
  7.  // 
  8.  // all day meeting 
  9.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("All_day",false)
  10.  // 
  11.  // meeting owner/host ID (can see any record related to this meeting) 
  12.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Owner",123456789012345678)
  13.  // 
  14.  // related to what (in this example, a lead record but can be almost any kind of record) 
  15.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("What_Id",98765432109876543)
  16.  // 
  17.  // the subject 
  18.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Event_Title","TEST Consultation: Call with TEST LEAD")

  26.  // the meeting location 
  27.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Venue","Online Meeting")
  28.  // 
  29.  // the start time 
  30.  m_ScheduleMeeting.put("Start_DateTime",zoho.currenttime.addBusinessDay(1).toString("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss","America/New_York"))
  31.  // 
  32.  // the end time

  44.  m_Participant = Map()
