what you mean to say is that it will be better to POSTPONE the drive / meet?

anyways - it is always better safe than sorry.

Yes it has to be postponed. We will not enjoy the drive under such circumstances.

May 25th or the first sunday of June this drive can take place.

planet_rocker says,

the meet/drive is postponed. you guys can make alternate plans for this weekend.

by the way, how about a mini meet on Monday after work - lets say somewhere in SaltLake/Park Street (time: around 8-8.30pm)?

Hi guys!
I am coming to Kolkata on Monday for a month or two on a project. I would love to meet up with the TBhp junta in Cal and a drive just makes the whole idea more lucrative. I will most probably be putting up in Saltlake.
Have met razor at the Speedrun and at work too. (Coincidentally, we work at the same firm).

Looking forward to catch up with you all!

"Massive presence of security forces with searching of cars as well as unexpected political violence can happen".

Though sceptical about it first, I thought to share as any untoward incident, like security forces searching any of our car/cars and making a scene and/or getting caught up during polls would leave a bad feeling.

But rural polls definitely is a different scenario, if by chance any problem happens definitely it is more violent. It is better to be safe and err on the side of caution.
I was planning to drive to Puri on 15 night. What say? Is it safe? I would be going via Kharagpur? What say?

Highways no problem, enjoy the ride in the night - before Kharaghpur is the fantastic NH60. Don't mix up the turning to Balasore NH60. The flyover goes to Kharaghpur, curved road is the NH60 one.
