Yet Another Success (30-01-11)


We have hosted yet another get together this time onboard a house boat at Kumarakom, Alleppey, Kerala; near to Kochi (our mother base). Though it was actually intended to be held on 31st January, as it is a Monday we have decided it to move it behind by one day to 30 Jan 2011, which is a Sunday. The preparation went in full swing by the Organizing Committee and the members were as follows:





APS Anand

Event Director

PA Biju

Program Manager

D Saravana Kumar

Finance Controller

Baiju Puthussery

Program Coodinator

Hamsa PP






Contribution per head was ` 2,500.00, which covered the Tea during the meeting, Buffet Lunch, Hard Drinks / Soft Drinks, Buffet Dinner and accommodation on 30 Jan 2011 night. Accommodation for all participants were arranged on 3 house boats. Out of the 31 participants 19 stayed overnight. Accommodation / other expenses out of this dates like 29 Jan 2011 / before and 31 Jan 2011 / later was provided by the organisers at their own expense at Kochi. Special thanks to P Baiju for this. A transit room was provided free of cost on 30 Jan 2011 for those who reached early so that they can refresh and change near Ernakulam Railway Station.


An A/C Bus left at 1000 hours on 30 Jan 2011 from Ernakulam South Railway station and we reached back Ernakulam Railway station by the same bus from Kumarakom on 31st Jan 2011 at 1000 hours as planned.

The heading of the event was "Indian Navy Retired Sailors’ Second Re-union, 30 Jan 2011, Kochi" and the phrase was "Old Friends… Sharing New and Old Experiences...". 

Photo and video coverage was done by the participants to save the additional expenditures. The same was uploaded at an internet file sharing site so that all can download. Anyone who is not comfortable can request any of us so that a CD / DVD can be despatched for them by bearing the cost as applicable. Program agenda for 30 Jan 2011 was as follows:

Thank you all for those who have participated and helped the organizers during the financial crisis, which was unexpected due to the poor response and lesser participation. Hope all of us will ensure that maximum participation is ensured from one and all going forward. Also this will be a lesson learned for the organisers so that we can conclude the final participant list a month or 2 before the actual date.

Creation of an association was considered by the participants. This will be taken forward after consulting advocates for legal clarifications. Requesting the cooperation of one and all again.

3 places were considered for the next meeting. Following are the details as per the priority:

> Chennai
> Yercad, Salem
> Goa.

Details will be finalised according to the availability of the people / organisers and all will be updated accordingly. Same information will be published on this site as well.
