Though most of the tourists do not visit Kolkata,still some of you make a short trip.So, we can have a travellers meet in Kolkata. this can help to make our city attravctive with your valuable suggestions and proposals. on the other hand you can know kolkata in a better way.
I had dinner at Fairlawn about 15 years ago; it was rather stiff, what with liveried servants and all. I was looking for the pipers (remember Heat & Dust?). Food was Western, bland, not unpleasant. I went with folks from Modern Lodge, and they were fun. I may go there again on this trip and see how it holds up to the memories.
It's nice to find reply from all of You.I think we may arrange a meeting in mid of November . Wonderwomanusa and Kipling will be there at that time. 6th or 7th of Oct we may arrange one . It's our custom to meet all our friends after DURGA PUJA thats known as VIJAYA DASAMI and it's continue upto DEWALI . We may celebrate VIJAYA DASAMI with indiamike's memebers Millreef can we arrange it in your 1st visit (21st oct)?
Well, Indiaguide, it is a simple point, although I suspect I will regret raising it.
On the one hand you have a meeting of members of this board arranged by members who are unconnected with the travel industry and who want nothing more out of such a meeting than to meet other travellers and share experiences, have a beer, crack a joke, etc. On the other hand you have a meeting convened by a member who is "working as Govt.of India approved tourist guide" I'm not suggesting there is anything wrong with what you are trying to arrange. Good luck to you. I just think there is a difference.
