Nice to know there is overwhelming response to replies and good to have you here Nagendra. I will definitely get in touch with you and join the movement.
I guess that would be it, in that case we'll all meet in March wherever the organization holds meeting, say what uglyhunk!!!
Our next program is in Vengurla, Kudal on the 19th Dec. There will be a leadership development camp there from 19th to 22nd.
We have tried to develop groups in Mumbai but have not been very successful. There is the proposal for a training camp at Mahad some time in Jan.,2010 but nothing concrete so far. Please look up rationalist movement- the challenges ahead on nirmukta.com for a discussion on this issue.
Thanks a lot Narendra.
I thought about starting a CFI or Secular Students Alliance in my campus but nobody is interested except me. don't want to end up making an organization where I am the only member :)
We wanted to have a training program in Mumbai. The venue is always available with all facilities at M.N.Roy center. But, sadly there is none who can organise it there. Last time I was there for a program was when we had one at Wilson College, Chowpatty. Before that we had some in Somiaya College, Vidya Vihar.
What a tragedy that the commercial capital of India has no rationalist movement at all! Things are not very different at the political capital too. After many years we had a training program at Delhi last month. But, most of the participants were from outside Delhi. We had only a handful from Delhi. Since you have already gone through my writeup I dont have much to say. I will be in Mumbai(Thane) on the 30th Dec and will be coming back to Mangalore on the 31st.
A meeting to celebrate the solar eclipse is planned at the National College, Basavangudi ground on the 15th inst. there is also a challenge for asstrologer Bhaskar Shetty to be held at 11 am on the 14th inst at Ashok Shishu Vihara, Shankarapuram, Bangalore.
