11URGENT: Schedule first meeting with overseas members
- Oct 11, 2004Hey Guys,
Its high time we started moving... we are remaining in a long period
of lull ever since this group was started.... forgive me for saying
so, I am not sure what is going on in Chennai... if you guys are
doing something... I am sorry for saying that we are in a lull...
But at least, I have been in a lull as far as this group goes... I
havent done anything except for sending emails... we need to get
going guys.... Inertia is a very bad thing... especially for a young
organization like ours... a very good start is highly critical.. so,
lets all take some time off from our busy schedules and get something
I was talking to my friend Saravanan (Sarna), who is also a member of
Velicham and he was the one who chided me for this slow pace from our
(guys in the US) sides... both of us decided that the guys here
should start getting in touch with you guys more often and start
There is no point in just sending emails...
So, I propose we have a conference this weekend. Please confirm what
time would be okay for you guys. Minimally, I would like to talk to
Chakkravarthy, Sathish and Barani (assuming you three guys are the
most active volunteers), anyone else is welcome... just that in that
case, we will have to change the medium of the conference( at the
moment I am thinking of a teleconference, we could change it to
yahoo! conference, if there are a lot of guys who want to be a part
10:30 AM on Sunday Oct 16th IST
If that is not possible, please come up with a concrete time and
email the group...
Guys, please lets do this... there are so many ppl that Sarna and I
have spoken to here... lot of ppl are interested, but both of us are
at a loss to say what the group is doing, has done etc...
Minimally, we need to discuss the following:
1. Introductory Information about the group.
2. Key members in Chennai
3. What Chakkravarthi has been doing so far.
a) What is the profile of the activities
b) What are his resources?
c) What does he further need?
d) How can the members in the US help?
4. Status of bank account
5. Schedule regular meetings
This is just a rough agenda. Guys, please add on to this as you might
Please reply back with a convenient time soon.
Machaan, could we register velicham.net?
What is your take on this?
Can you be available for a conference call?
Anyone else I am missing, please feel free to mail in and
