Congrats buddy!!! Hope you get your passport issues sorted. As some of them have suggested the Tatkal option is a good way out.

I am more than confident that you will make it. I have noticed that "passion" overcomes all problems and hindrances in everything in life and you obviously have a lot of that. If this was Calcutta I would have promised you the PP in two days regardless of where your file is. In Delhi I don't know but proof of travel requirement does speed up things in the PP office. Do carry all the documents that show you require the passport very urgently.

ok here is the update.. ( much to the disappointment of delhi bhaiyyas who were ready with THEIR passports )

i went to the passport office today..met the P.R.O

after facing 3 near "reject" situations, the P.R.O finally gave in and comitted to have the passport delivered on Monday evening 5 pm

i hope there are no more surprises and i get the passport on Monday !!

but thanks to Suman's call yesterday - otherwise i was almost convinced that its not going to work out..

more updates on Monday and the next week when i hope to get the detailed iterinery

Please park yourself in the office from around 1 pm onwards on Monday. Don't take these commitments at their face value.
