Talking Kolkata - "Baganbari Meet" - November '08 EDIT: Report and pics from pg. 19

if you think you guys had fun (Kolkata Meet - October '08) and again want to "Jhund Banao" - please feel free to suggest:

1. The venue.
2. Adda-type / Drive
3. Dates
4. POA.

Long drives a fun - we have options like Motel Midway, Kolaghat Dhaba, Reliance A1 Plaza - nh6.

if you think that we need to book table for all at a particular venue then it has to be within city limits. OR - we can go as per suggestions.

Am in. Sher-e Punjab Kolaghat would be my pick.
Any weekend in Nov would work.
@Planet: Let's plan the Dec baganbari meet simultaneously since UC needs to make reservations asap. Am in for that as well

Am in too
SEP,Kolaghat would be my pick as well as we can get a chance to have some 'drive'. I suggest 23rd November,a Sunday.Others please pour in.

Dec baganbari meet can be planned simultaneously as I would be happy if we can do it on a grand scale.

Members please suggest.

Good am in too.... but a small suggestion SEP is a good venue but the kolaghat bridge is big dampner I mean if u get stuck u r gone for 45 minutes or more, recent visits to Haldia has proven this point. How bout going to Shaktigarh on Durgapur expressway. Road is way better and no hastles, and yep other than lengchas we do have couple of decent dhabas out there. Just give a thought

Do those 'decent dhabas' serve daaru? Meat without daaru would be a big no-no.Otherwise me_sid is right in pointing out the horrible Kolaghat bridge.I hate those fly-filled,stinking lengcha soup which is served in Saktigarh though.

@Toiingg: Please don't make funny face yaar,we will surely do the baganbari meet.

I never fancied Lyangcha.

However we need to plan for the baganbari meet, as that will need arrangements (like catering etc) to be made.

I would most probably be in Raipur on 23rd, preparing for the drive to Kolkata. A week earlier would suit me better.

If you guys really want to go for a long drive then you can go to Maithon. It will hardly take 2 and half hours to reach there and the place as many of know is really nice. Boat ride on the dam in winter is very pleasant. And on the top of it the road is perfect.

Maithon would be a better choice given the road conditions and the distance. It would be better if you can book a couple of rooms at DVC-Majumdar Niwas, specially if you are planning to take your family.

Maithon is a nice idea,and the drive would be great too.Thanks Sumitro for the suggestion,but I guess lot of members would back out because of the distance and night stay.

@Wim: 16th might be possible for me if I don't go to Puri. If I do,then thats the date we are coming back to Calcutta.

Maithon can be easily done in a day. Night stay is not necessary. The Majumder Niwas option was to help in unwinding.

absolutely true.. I have never stayed overnight in Maithon and have gone there innumerable times . The short drive from the NH to the dam is also beautiful after one crosses the Mandir (dont remeber the name, sorry for my ignorance) on the left. Messanjore is also a very nice place but will be a little far off..
