Ahhh.... no problem, I think Me & Steer will come & try to convince your Dad to let you go!

And I was gonna visit your stall anyway to have a look at the equipment & pick up some gyaan from your father!

How about 9th night Zak?? The place is now also open on Wednesdays!

Zak, PM me your Mobile number if you get in by the 5th - we can meet for a drink that Saturday, depending on where you are staying (I'm on the other end of the NCR in Gurgaon)
Yup, 11th is the date & that can't be changed. And Suman he's going to be in Nizamuddin, better you meet him after office.

I'm a bit poor in understanding Delhi's Geography. The worst is to go round and round and merry go round in CP!
Ok. I know where CP, Janpath, Indiagate, Nizamuddin, Saket, Redfort etc... are! But more than that, I'll need a GPS or Ishan.

9th evening at ELEVATE? I'm game. Yes, full game!

Btw guys!
Don't confuse the 9th with 11th. Friday is the real MEAT! Am I right?

Dont depend on that chap - the only answer you will get is "I'm working on it".

I'll have my GPS with me - have never tested the delhi maps.

Don't worry about driving to Pragati maidan. Come to CP, park at NDMC, take the metro to the expo. Taking your car there during auto expo is a nightmare, with horrendous parking arrangements and strong risk of equipment theft.

5 star deluxe - Shangrila, Imperial, Hyatt - 17000- 22000 a night (single standard)

5 Star regular - The park etc - 13000 a night

3 and 4 star (Like Hans at CP etc) - 9000 single standard

2 star and fancy guesthouses (Hotel Rani Palace at GK1 etc) will cost 5000 a night.

Horrible hotels at about 2000 a night. And you'll be lucky to get a room.

Even i want to visit. but no place to stay. my flat at Sarvapriya is closed for 6 months now, so to send someone to clean up and make ready for my 2 day visit doesnt make sense. Wish I could get a room at a well located 5* for upto 12000.
Why is there no "Pritam" there?
