I believe that the day, 1st July is of significance. A 20th anniversary bash shouldn't be held on any other day except the 1st of July. Checked the calendar, its a saturday.

While jingos keen about Aero India can always visit there, hosting a 20th Anniversary bash/meet on any day except the 1st of July isnt doing justice to the significance of the occasion !

imho onlee.

Edit : SwamyG ji has made an excellent suggestion.
I tried looking for contact information for Sh. Ajit Doval ji, and i landed upon this.
http://www.pmindia.gov.in/en/list-officer-pmo/

Once we finalize the modalities of the anniversary celebrations, I really wish that we write to Sh. Doval extending an invite.

Far fetched, maybe. There is no harm in trying though !

Reaching him is easy, getting him more difficult given his extensive travels with the PM and otherwise !! Chanakya is a very hardworking and busy man !

Please aim for the sky, try to get Ajit Doval as a speaker :-) Maybe we will end up with his son (no disrespect to Shaurya Doval). I know he is the NSA and does not have the time, but I see him still on speaking assignments.


Perhaps BRF can officially connect with Vivekanand Foundation to get Doval ji as speaker.

Although my preference will be Major General Bakshi, as he will bring extra josh and loads of "thermobarics", plus even if you get Doval ji yes to attend the event, any emergency or unforeseen may force him to cancel.

Though I know that very few (if at all anyone) would prefer it, but still I'll give my hopeless shot at this :(( .

If we host the event in Ahmedabad, I'm ready to take all the responsibility of logistics. I can get a retired Army Colonel who is well known + knowledgeable (who has stories to tell from his cash-mere posting) and someone from RSS as the guests.

BTW, Would an event at Pipavav Shipyard interest anyone? The place is bit remote though.

PS: why the banguluru-ites should have all the fun all the time? I'm feeling jealous :oops: .

I think seeing the lack of participation for a mega meet, it is better each metropolis hold their individual meets.That I assume would be a better idea.

X-Post
Make some rules for future.
- if you want to retain title "OLDIE" you have to attain at least one jirga/ year
-Moderator initiates at least one jirga/ year
Brite are all over the world. there has to be local serious jirgas (+ gupshup jirga ending with whiskey jirga;

Ready for European Jirge (centrally located in Brusselabed) Any taker? End of June '17 is perfect. BTW how many of us are here?

Actually I am realising that I can make it quite interesting. Visit to Ypres (Monument Indian solders who fought in WWI) and visit to the Bastogne war Museum (Battle of Bulge). Day (days) spiced with Belgian Beer degustation........can be fun. Transport all over Europe is cheap . Ryanair jindabad (specially for kanjoos England wallah) or just drive.

Rsingh ji,
Can do Brussels next year. Advanced notice needed as I still hold Indian passport and need to apply for a visa to visit continental Europe.

Unfortunate that we cannot have one big event. However, to reconcile, may be we should have a 20th anniversary booth in AI 2017. Would be happy to contribute what I can for this even if I cannot attend in person.

Talking about fake indian desh, how about NJ?

Added later: We should host this in a native american reservation and use the opportunity to highlight the human rights violations meted out to "Not so" Indian people.

I am all in for the meet.Would ideally prefer it to be in BLR for obvious reasons. I second the suggestion that the date is a crucial thing so having it on 1st July is the best thing to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our founding. I am based out of BLR and can connect with hoteliers if the mods want to get an idea on the pricing for the event.

Looking forward for the mega meet..

Cheers!!

you mean Long Island? JC would be good for people as most bharatnivasis stay there only, places like exchange place or newport would be good options. Has anyone here attended any BRF meet before?

Congrats BR on your anniversary. I remember the dial up days, the old portal - and the corporate id only rule. Hence I could only join when I got my first job. Nevertheless - for the last 10 years I have had coffee and BR every morning. Jai Ho BR!!!

If we have someone at Seattle - then I will be happy to meet.

Happy Birthday. I believe I have been part of the sideline viewer community for most of the 20 year. Not a day go by when I check few times a day.

Also attended two meets and remember meeting Anurag, Rahul and N Rao I think.

To all the Admins and Mods, Thanks for helping this child grow to an adulthood.
