    Yes Sat, had to visit Vecto to fix the damn door issue which was over concerning me alot. Hence left with Krishna and Imran. However, this meet was a total failure for me as i could not join with all people and know more and have fun :(
    Waiting to meet you all real soon.

    Sat is missing - he was behind the lens :D

    Guys, we should do this more often. How about an out station trip next time - Say Pondicherry / Mahabalipuram? I know Goa sounds like a natural choice, but I am not a big fan of the rush in Goa's beaches. Alternately, we could also consider some beach on the west coast as well. Just a thought.

    @Rajan,

    Me and Arnab had inititally thought of next meet @ Goa in his Goa thread :p

    Looks like we should hit such places. Even keralas coastal places are also fine. What say guys. A 2 - 3 day outing meet would be great?

    I am game always. Preferably goa ;)

    Sorry Zen. I am not very keen on Goa. I would like to go to a place, where we can spend time together and get to know each other better, rather than go to a place where we spend two days and still not know each other properly. IMHO, bonding happens when we have to depend on each other or do things as a team, rather than go to a place with too many distractions.

    That is just my POV. I am an old man and live in a relatively small world. I neither have the inclination, nor the energy to live life in the fast lane any longer. If the majority wants to go to Goa, I will certainly tag along, but will probably spend most of the time in my room, reading a book and drinking beer :D

    Having said that, the answer to this question should help decide - "What is more important - the drive and the company, or is it the destination?"

    What an awesome meet it was with a turnout of so many FIATs.
    The enthu and spirits were very high and every one of us enjoyed to the most.

    I def agree with you sir. This meet i could not have fun nor was satisfactory to me. I could not enjoy with the team nor know the team properly. I feel very sad :(

    Always there for the beer :p

    Having said that, i am game for any location as long as its fun. The only reason i mentioned goa coz parallel discussion happened with Arnab in his thread as well as i never been there :D

    2nd set

    I stopped inbetween for a photoshoot and when i started again, i directly went to Barahchukki falls where as the rest of the team went to Gaganchukki falls. I came to know about this only after i when to the Barachukki falls to find out no one was there. I spoke to Rajan and was waiting for the rest of the team to come to Barachukki.

  9. I have updated above list, Pondicherry or Mahabalipuram or Netrani island or even Hampi is a choice.

    Rajan,

    I am with you on this, at least once a year i go off to places where it is peaceful and i can complete reading few books.I ussually do this during Diwali times as i don't like crackers.
    It started due to having pet, but no has become a routine.

    We can go to some place in western ghat for say minumum of three days at least and stay in some home stay, we can spend time in talking to each other.
    Go to places near by, may be slow trekking, walking though Coffey or tea plantations.

    Places of choice fro near to far off, Coorg-->Chickmagalur-->Kotagiri-->Waynad ... few more may be there which i can't recall now.

    Hampi sounds good. I think one cannot stay in Netrani Island, right? However, SCUBA diving does sound like fun. Why don't we start a new thread, with date and destination options? I feel a place in the East Coast would allow our friends from Chennai to join as well.
