Default Kolkata Meet - June 2008. Now updated with meet Pics.

Guys, please plan for a meet / drive / adda (lots of it) - i am sure the weather will be pleasant as well.

how about a drive to Falta / Gadiara - we can plan for an overnite stay and get tallu - oye Shuvc - chaal daaru la

Guys, please do this before one of the bongs and one of the Non-Bongs break my head.

Ps: Shuvc - just joking bro.

June should be fine. Though with hiring again on in the org - weekends are unpredictable.

Would prefer to go to Falta / Ibiza and hangout.

Falta is around 50 kms from kolkata (off Diamond Harbour) IIRC.

Congrats on the new Ride - hope to see her soon - get rid of the 13 inchers and the OE tyres (GPS 2??) and put some nice alloys and better tyres.

OT: where do you stay? how come i dont have your number - please pm me your number.

what about the other lazy/senti members? no one is interested for the meet kya?

hey guys!

A drive sounds like music to me! But I am out of station for the whole of next week. Will be back on the 9th, so anything after that suits me just fine!

Why dont we plan something like a monsoon drive as others are having, and what better place than Purulia for experiencing monsoon, places like Murguma, Khairabera, Jhalda, Duarsini, Kuilapal, Doladanga - the list is endless and the scenic beauty fantastic during monsoons. Purulia truly is an undiscovered place and that too right here near Kolkata. Believe me, it will be worth it but an overnight stay is required. In fact, I am sure to go to Purulia this monsoon definitely and most probably I will otherwise stay for 2-3 days, covering the whole circuit.

If not an overnight journey, Gadiara would be better than Falta as this is more also of a driving experience. The Diamond Harbour Road is mostly crowded, though not congested, and the feeling of a drive wont be that much, plus around 15 km of Behala roads would be tiresome.

Gadiara without overnight stay is the perfect place, the WBTDC is just situated where the 2 rivers meet. Plus first driving along the four laned NH6 and then through the Gadiara road via Shyampur, would not stress us much.

The idea of drive is great. I would go with ADC, Falta is pathetic, I mean its better to drive in Dalhousie at 11:30 rather than driving to Falta, roads are bad ( yeah monsoon time) traffic horrible, Gadiara seems to be a good proposition though, nice place particularly in the evening and that too if it rains. Drive also is very good. And as for a sunday evening hangout thats not a problem I guess. Oh.... did sumbody mention daru ???? Hic..where is he????

cheers:

we need to plan a lot if we are planning to go to Gadiara - FYI most of the Kolkata BHPians are lazy (including me).

well we can go to the Dhaba off NH6 (near Dhulagarh Truck Terminal) and hang out - provided the weather is good. how about this Sunday, 15th June 2008? the roads are pretty OK - but there is a little bit of trafiic - dont worry! you will be able to ... well keep the min speed above 100.

True !! I had to experience this syndrome during my last kolkata visit when no one turned up for a meet which was discussed more than a month back.
