I'm good with this idea, but I guess CP is just a more central location.

Everyone who is okay with Lodhi Road as the meeting point, say aye.

Thumbs up Re: Delhi Meet & Cause Initiative: Blanket and Clothes distribution Drive - 12th Jan

Guys,

All the best for this noble cause!

Just a suggestion: The BEST time to distribute blankets / sweaters to the 'real needy' people, is during late night hours (after 10 PM) or early morning hours (Before 5 AM).

This is the time when you will see the needy people sleeping on road sides. Just cover them (whoever needs it) with the blankets and proceed further. Such an act will give you a different kind of satisfaction.

Rest is your choice.

Cheers!

Ok with me.

BHPians from Noida/East Delhi, which is the shorter route to Lodhi road from Akshardham?

Via Purana Qila or via Barapullah?

You can use Barapullah Elevated Road to get right at the intersection, alternately you can also take DND -> Nizamuddin -> Lodhi Road route.
Mayankk can be helpful with the route as well.

Cheers,
Sam

Dear all, As per my talks with Utsav today morning regarding the meeting and distribution point it has been suggested from my end that all activities shall be done in C.P itself and the meeting point will also be C.P only as decided earlier by him.

thanks

I would like to understand where we will be going for the actual distribution, though. Please clarify.

EDIT:
Can we please have more members participating in this cause? Every extra member/non-member joining us would make a difference.

+1 to Samarth.

Utsav,

Let us all know the plan. We just have 1 day to go.

IMO, a place crowded with high-end restaurants and branded showrooms is not the ideal location for the cause.

Agreed Rishi; but Rajiv Chowk Station is one place where more than half of our collected clothes can be distributed. Also I am going to CP at 4 for some work. Will update the thread with spots for distribution there by today evening.

thanks

See, I am keeping all suggestions in my mind. But, CP is a central route for almost everybody. I think the best is to meet there, decide on the spot, drive along, and distribute wherever we see people!
Thats why I decided a little early morning because I see a lot of people sleeping around the roads.

I agree with Utsav. It is best we meet at CP, it's central and convenient for everyone and everyone can easily locate and reach the A block parking. Also I agree that we can meet and decide the route and figure out how to go about it there itself, it wouldn't take up much time. We can always meet in CP and if need be, drive together to lodhi road or wherever, together, as group, isn't that the whole point of a meet? to have a nice time bickering and driving together as a convoy!

Well, AD sir, like in the NFC meet, you seem to always recce and provide us with much needed and valuable information. I think we should stick to this route, if we don't find people/some blankets are left, we can try out other areas as suggested by Samarth Bhaiya.

We shall go together in a convoy.

Dear Utsav and Samar, What I did was just a small help for our community. I did not want anyone to have an issue regarding the meeting point and the distribution. This was the last thing needed to complete your hard-work and efforts.

thanks
