@Kiran I agree. I think one of us (either hurricane or you -- preferably the person with a good understanding of Pune city) should represent the group and have a chat with Amogh about our plans. It would be necessary to know what the flag-off procedure and time is. I read in the early mails that Breakfast @ VITS was part of Fiat's hospitality. This would give us some indication about what Friday morning may feel like -- if we have to get on the road at 6 AM to reach VITS in time for breakfast and the flag-off, we'd better know it now. That might further constrain our choice of hotels and locations.
