Aah! What is this 'da' stuff? Zappo, Zap, deb anything is ok. Oi 'da' shombodhon taa shudhu rudra-da'r jonno, ok.

Hmmm... so Nov it is. Great. Lets see now... I hope I manage to make it (you know how chhuttis finally are in IT sec). This shantiniketan thing will be fun. And BP, bachche, you are also coming this time around. You have 2 months to sort out all your finances... so do that.

EDIT: ace959, welcome to the kolkata club of TBHP (its better than a club in many aspects). By the way, can you take that singature line of yours out of the 'Quote'. It is pretty confusing. Makes one think that you have replied to someone.

Haven't had a decent run for the last few days due to the blasted rains. Intend to utilize AJC flyover to its full potential tonight.

Halfway to the office got a call that something urgent had come up... had to rush!! Bas, uske baad to waat hi lag gayi... was crazy busy the entire day, couldn't take out even half'n'hr to go to Dewar's. Drove back at 9:30, cursing my boss the entire way.

Anyway, I was glad to see this morning that there was hardly any seepage in my car... the carpets were more or less dry, with a few damp spots in the rear. The car also drove smoothly, no hiccups or sluggishness. Guess I was pretty lucky to get away with minimal damage after the nightmare the other night (touch wood!!!).

Will still drop it at Dewar's tomorrow... have to get the scratches repainted anyway, so will get a check up done along with it.

there is slight problem with the date in November

i was planning to make it on 17th & 18th - but Jasabanti (camellia wali) checked that theyhave previous booking on 17th & 18th by some Insurance Company (training programme)

so i have selected 10th & 11th of November - sorry guys.

@ zappo - if you can make it to kolkata by 10th - then its well & good - if not then we will arrange for another meet on 17th / 18th.

i hope you guys remember - Rudra da will be here on 15th November (AFAIK)

Exclamation aah! not again

oh no! not again - i went there and have already changed the dates

9th is kalipuja! 11th bhaiphota just came to know about these. this is not good! again messed it up. i think the dates cannot be changed again.

but if we can start from there early - we can come back to kolkata by evening.
