I will miss bonobashi. Is there absolutely no way for you sir to make it? Regarding food - I am all for keeping it simple, like just mangsho bhaat (something alternate to mangsho for the veggies like baby corn etc - I have no clue) and "bring your own breakfast and booze". This keeps things simple. Kebab stall and all will require a full time caterer.

I think its high time to decide on the budget and start collecting the money.
Daktar Babu, can you please let us know what's the per head contribution amount.

It'll be better if you can also mention an account number and the IFSC code attached to the branch so that we can transfer the money there.

If anyones bringing in friends, please make sure that their contribution is covered.

The collection should end strictly by the 15th of November.

That way it is easier for UC to get a headcount and arrange for the caterer or cook, whichever way it goes.

And FYI please, if there are any last minute cancellations, the contribution will not be refunded, , we will consider the amount to be convenience charge and forfeit it.

Guys lets buckle up and finish the initial formalities. We'll definitely have a great meet.

toiingg ji, Planet has mentioned 250 to 300 per head roughly,whereas you are suggesting that 'price per head goes up by 200 - 300'!! Think it over boss,as I told before,everything and anything is possible,but at a price.
Delhi guys had a kebab stall no doubt,but at that meet, head count was 68,we haven't yet reached half that figure!
But don't loose hope,am in constant touch with caterer guys!

Fridge won't be an issue,except bloody power-cuts which are common there.There is a diesel generator,but its used for people,won't be probably for the fridge.If the previous night rendezvous is on (shuvd,please confirm !),then the 'beer, soft drinks n fruit juice (and soda)' like you said can be stored beforehand.

We all will miss bonobashi.We will be glad if he can make it for 1-2 hours even.
Regarding food,in all probabilities it will be a simple affair just like any picnic.Exotic menu can be ordered,but by 12th that has to be final.

Full time caterer its going to be in any case.The cook can at best handle 10-15 heads,more than that,he won't be able to handle.Plus there is ease of service including serving drinks and refreshments (read fish finger/fish orly/chicken kebabs/chips and chanachur/fried baby corn)

Why do I get this sudden, hair-raising premonition that you guys not only want a kebab stall, but also an Aunt Sally stall?


FWIW, and don't start retracting/denying your expressions of regret, my father suddenly caught fright at being faced with a sea of adoring relatives all wishing him many happy returns, cancelled the party, and is looking and feeling much better!

So I am available on the 23rd after all.

Did I ever mention that Coleridge is one of my favourite poets?

<thinks grimly: now let's see them set yet another date - they aren't going to shake me off so easily>

That's great news. Looking forward to meeting you again!

I'm still not sure of my Raipur trip dates, but as of now it looks like I might make it to the Daktar's Baganbari. Status (as usual) - 50:50.

How about a game of cricket at the meet? It's been ages since I last had the opportunity of indulging in one...

4. shuvd + daru
5. vro(7)m
6. 1100D + 1.5

Wow! I am sure this is one of the most well-planned and deliberated meets ever! 23rd seems too far away now! BYOBB (Booze + Breakfast) sounds good to me. And a kebab stall is too attractive to ignore. I am ok with the extra costs involved. The others can let in their opinions!

Hadn's noticed earlier that BB is confirmed now. That will be great. And I shall be much obliged to offer you a lift sir, if your regular "liftman" wimwian is absent on that day.
