Won't be any better, I promise. Someone else will be busy for some other reason. Trust me, I have no free time either. When I come back to Mumbai, there's gonna be a truckload of work piled up on my table.

Exactly. If not the aspiring engineers, it could be the budding doctors or the prospective lawyers or future accountants.

Well said, Aditya. None of us will ever find 'free' time - you have to make time free. There will be a cost to it and obviously you need to decide whether you're willing to bear that cost.

I cant speak for others, but I am sure that every other member who is making the trip is setting aside time that would have been used for other purposes. Nobody has 'free' time, and every person's time is important to him.

I completely agree with steeroid on this one .. Almost each one of us are busy with something or the other .. From the guys that i have met and discussed about the meet here are a few examples ..

Nitin will be in delhi on the 26th and the 27th but yet he has promised to make it to goa directly from delhi ..
Psycho has truck loads of work pending owing to tuning cars for speedrun etc yet he is coming with his family ..
I have my 3rd internals during the proposed dates ..
Steeroid tops them all , he lives in a different country all together , yet is finding time from his busy schedule to make to the meet .. Sir , i bow to u ..

So , all i need to say is if we indeed want to make it its quite possible to find solutions to pending works , work a little OT before and after the meet etc etc .. Right now from where i see it its been all show no go from most of the members ..

PS : No offense to anyone ..

Oh come on, save me the rant guys! What I posted was just rabid rantings of somebody who really wanted to be at the meet but couldn't be for conditions he couldn't possibly work around anyway. I obviously know everybody has a lot to do. Sheesh you guys....

Friends, Goans and Countrymen

Can you please let me know where I need to get off the train? I'm arriving on the morning of the 27th by Netravathi Express from Cochin which is a convenient overnight journey - I just dont know which of the stations I need to get off at.

Please help me out, or I'll land up in Mumbai.

Essentially what you're alleging here is that Sam is an Escort...

PLUS, you're threatening me - what did I do????

Thank you, Rallystar. I havent noticed Thivim on my Netravathi trips, but I do remember Madgaon, Karmali and Sawantwadi Road. Which of the three alternatives are better in case the train doesnt stop at Thivim?
