I wonder why no replies to a Meet.

Nikhil considering the swine flu, how about the venue be Mumbai (as it also helps that I am in Mumbai onliee :mrgreen: )

it should be in mumbai bcoz...

-Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment centre of India, generating 5% of India's GDP,[6] and accounting for 25% of industrial output, 40% of maritime trade, and 70% of capital transactions to India's economy

-Mumbai is home to important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations.

-The city also houses India's Hindi film and television industry, known as Bollywood.

-Mumbai's business opportunities, as well as its potential to offer a higher standard of living, attract migrants from all over India and, in turn, make the city a potpourri of many communities and cultures.

Awww....crap, i want it to be in mumbai coz i stay there!!! :D :twisted:

Pune also has Paki flu :twisted: . Though your barbecque offer is tempting.

Mumb(h)ais, what are you doing ? Pune Ghats people (dare not call them ghattis) are outnumbering and outmanouevering us. Rise and shine and chip in.

Hey just an observation - what does the garu log not replying for a meet? I am sure some of the 'oldies' must be around too here.

BR meet at my door steps... thats a nice idea...
guys i will love to be part of it.

Beside...abt the confusion b/w mum and pune.. i have few suggestions:

1) i will really appreciate it as an official BR meet in pune. Hence it can be made a regular annual or bi-annual meet.
2)Pune is also youth capitol of india...so looking in to BR future..it is strategically imp.
3)being selfish... i am in pune at present!

Advice to non-puneites about swine flu...it is indeed serious, but with proper precautions(masks) and selecting a non-crowded venue , we can still make it a success. May i suggest some park, or restro in areas like PCMC which is less affected and is well connected.

there's a b'ful park in nigadi (in PCMC)..and as i live here.. i can say this area has almost none actual swine flu cases...

looking forward for responses...

Actually I was planning on a place where we could have a large place for BBQ and fun etc...One option is Sigree in DP road, large table with coal BBq's in the table...approx 450 per head and we could get group discounts...
Or...
Some place where we meet and travel to a place like wadeshwar or something and set upa BBQ camp...

Guys, if it HAS to be in Pune, please see to it that the venue is convenient enough for Mumbaikars too. If don't happen to have any exams on that day, i'll definitely make it a point to come down.

And would a BBQ mean overnight stay?

Nikhil: I have dropped you a mail some days back with my phone number - if we decide on Lonavala, we can also have some of our BR Mumbai folks (Austin/Kapil/Aditya M et al) join us .....!

Paging Kapil/Austin and other Mumbai members......- how about a mega* Mumbai/Pune meet?

cheers,

Saumitra
* In these days of swine flu, mega could mean 4-5 people onlee... :)

If there are quite a few of Mumbaikars for the meet, we can also go together specially if the venue is Lonavala which would require a vehicle for returning at night.

I have a car which could accomodate 4 (other than me) from Pune...i think a Mega meet will be a GREAT idea.

Lonavala sounds good.....the drive would be worthwhile and so would be meeting the BRFITE's!!

Bhat has happened to all the josh ??

Nikhil - take the lead dude. You are no longer a 'trainee' also !!! :D so you got to show more josh. You have most of our email IDs/phone number. Just call everyone up once to have live chit chat.

As for the meet - please go ahead and fix a date. Some will come and some will miss. We will NEVER get a 100% attendance.

Btw, I think you got the trainee tag removed after you started this thread. So this might be your reward by moderator-ullahs. Dont let them down lest you invite their wrath and get reduced to old trainee status again :P

Oct 2 is being suggested and there is a venue that is identified with drinks :shock: :shock: BRFites should not drink on Oct2 at least no? :lol:

Guys you better learn how to get a meeting done from the dull and boring us chennai jingoes. In no time we had a meeting. Makes me proud of Chennai jingoes onlee.

I keep travelling to Mumbai very often, if your meeting and my trip coincides, would love to meet with some gentle readers of BR.

But first get going people! All the best!!

p.s. Dont give too much importance to the gentle leg pulling indulged above. The more BR meetings the better I feel.

Looks like Mumbai folks are planning a meet of their own. We should have a combined meet sometime, but travelling to Lonavala takes a little doing. Could have a low-key meet in Pune any time, even if number of attendees is in single digits.
