Lets fix 29-30 and plan accordingly.

1. Anyone know of hotels to put up at, at Santiniketan. Will be taking the kid along so it's gotta be decent.

2. When should we start on Saturday ? Between 8-9pm and reach there by lunch ? Or have lunch at home and start at 2pm ?
Starting in the morn will give us some leisure time in the evening out there. If we start post lunch, we'll probably reach after sundown.

3. Those of you who would be going on Sunday 30th morning, please jaldi bolo. We'll need to plan for a rendezvous in and around S'tan.

Been there. Is kinda expensive for Santiniketan. Was 2.5K per night in 2001. Nowadays have seen adverts upto 3.75K per night. I believe it is off-season so there could be discounts - but how much ?

The place meets the requirements @Razor has listed.

Exclamation Here is the mail sent to all of you:

as of now the date has been fixed on 29th & 30th September. the meet/drive has been divided in two parts.

POA will be as follows:

Part 1:

Date: 29th Sept. - Saturday
Time: sometime in the afternoon (after 12pm post lunch) / or as shuvc suggests
Gather at: in front of IOC petrol pump - near AJC Bose Rd Flyover - beside Arsalan (see this to have an idea: ImageShack - Hosting :: dscn0011bw8.jpg )
Drive to: Shantiniketan - spend the night somewhere there - booz - lots of adda.
Why Part 1: because some of us are game for spending the night at shantiniketan + Lunch at Banalakshmi (14kms from Shantiniketan towards Kolkata)

Time: 7am / plan accordingly guys (PM me for mobile numbers of the members)
Gather at: in front of IOC petrol pump - near AJC Bose Rd Flyover - beside Arsalan (see this to have an idea: ImageShack - Hosting :: dscn0011bw8.jpg )
Drive to: Banalakshmi & gather with the rest of the gang from Part 1 at around 11-11.30am - lunch at Banalaksmi + Photoshoot + Adda -> Drive back to Kolkata by 7pm - therefore the ideal time to start off from Banalakshmi would be 4pm.

was pulling your leg. its good to have a person like you who will take care of all the details. As for me, I forgot to take even a single thing from that list during the Hyderabad trip. it was good luck that BlackPearl did not play any tricks during the trip
