"THE COMFORTABLE CHAIR - SITTING IN IT OR GETTING OUT OF IT TO TAKE THE PLUNGE"

The Comfortable Chair, refers to the security of a guaranteed income and peace of mind that comes with holding on to one's job and not going into the wildly unpredictable realm of Entrepreneurship.

    The venue and the order of min Rs100/- remains the same.

So, dears members, requesting you to please do try and come over to the meet without fail. Thank you.

    Core Committee meets to plan the event for one last time before it happens and celebrate one of the Core Committee Member, Niladri's birthday today at The Only Place...
