ICF Trip and Back to Kolkata (P-1).
Today is the DAY, Myself and WRIK from KOLKATA have come 1700 kms and have waited for 2 LONG months.what a coincidence that "NEELAM" also thought it can also be a part of our ICF trip and it started raining from the time we woke up at 6am.As we were busy with our ICF Trip and moving across the Units with knowledge gathering at every corner.
At around 3pm, when the Chart got prepared, it was to our utter DISMAY that WE were alloted at S13-60
and S3-62, the seperation of 10 compartments between us.Anyways the return journey was thought to be waived off the difference after such a great memorable trip at ICF.
In the meantime at around 6pm to 730pm, we had a MINI ADMIN's(Myself,Dr.Nazeer,WRIK,Tejas,Dipyaman Basu,Amjad Ali Khan,Suresh Sirvi and Sai Jinendraji) Get-Together at Chennai Central A/c Waiting Hall.We had some general topics,some IRI related, some IR related and some other subjects as well to discuss.After all these, we decided to have Dinner at a place and had asked Saiji to choose the place for us and City of chennai is like his own palm and who better than Saiji to advise us.As we came to a decision to proceed to DELHI HOTEL, Saiji took his HONDA ACTIVA to wards the hotel.
For Dinner, we had Chappati,Yellow Dal,Green Peas curry,Bhindi(Lady's Finger) Curry,Gobi Aloo Matar Curry,Mixed veg Curry and Salad.With all these happening on Dinner table,WRIK decided to by-pass the dinner because he wasn't feeling hungry after consuming lots of Snacks while returning from ICF visit.
After a Courteous and Sumptuous Dinner Party(Thanks to Sai Jinendraji) at a Sai Jinendraji's familiar "DELHI Hotel" Junction around the Waltax Road which is almost 1000mts across the P-1 exit gate.While Amjad Bhai had to leave around 815am to catch an EMU to TADA, Myself,WRIK,Dr.Nazeer,Dipyaman Basu,Tejas,Suresh Sirvi and Sai Jinendra had some beautiful time at the Hotel.Time ticking around 830pm, Nazeerji had to leave as he had ticket booked in Nilgiri Exp which was to depart at 915pm.It started to drizzle a bit at 840pm when we took an AUTO without bargaining on being Hefty Charged at Rs.100 instead of Rs.50-70 as advised by Jinendraji.As soon as we took to the streets, it started raining Heavily and i mean it Heavily with our Shoes getting wet from the wind gust even through the Side-covers of the AUTO.
However as we closed in on EGMORE station, the rain subsided.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
