    Thank you guys for organizing this trip. It was a wonderful morning well spent in company of nature and very good people. Dhaba food was amazing. Thanks to Suneels people skills we could get tea, some of us had it twice and the extra packaged chutney that I forgot in Hemant's car. Hope he enjoys it!!! Cheers! Suneel found chandi on the trail!

      got not press the enter button! Krips restaurant has a ground floor and a floor above that- during lunch mostly food is delivered to offices and the floor above the ground floor has 18 seating- so I just asked him if this Writer's circle from this Happy Group could meet there- I think it is this coming Sunday 10AM - 2PM- he will discuss this tonight [hopefully]- now the floor above is Kkrishna's beauty saloon/parlor- then above that is the roof top I was talking about for people who would like to booze- it is across from Turquoise cottage - and one can see it from the roof top- which has a newer bathroom- but otherwise just a roof - and there will be some old restaurant table and chairs- but at no cover charges and bring your booze with a waiter in attendance- could be a party place any time- of course Dalip has to be there- his parents usually take turns running the place otherwise...

      August 26, 2013

    • Suneel

      Now...to continue...Dalip's only interest would be food sales- being a restaurant- so whether it be a booze party in the evening- or Happy people writing subgroup's meet up- if there are enough ordering - every thing should be joyful- In the States and on return to India in 2010 I was as American expression goes 'on the wagon' for 17 years- total abstinence- [save for some pot once/few times in years]...then few month's after Ma's passing, early 2012 - I started again- definitely the mind is crisper and very efficient when one abstains. But, imbibing is a joyful pleasure also- it the liver I get worried about- many a times...Cheers!!

    ...wonder why we get an average on star rating- when actually I hit all the five stars - and it was showing great...

    1 · August 24, 2013

    • Suneel

      Thanks Dinesh for liking the comment- but on thinking, have figured out that that everyone has hit on all the five stars- So- it is an Average of Five Stars from all who commented...

    Great walk, friendly people and amazing food - good start to the season! Thanks Joe and Hemant.

  • Suneel

    Thank You Hemant and Joe - it was a Joy to be with all of you today. Onwards: we all have to co-ordinate with Air Vice Marshal Vinod Rawat VSM- for planting of Neem Trees -I will be very motivated and contact Air Marshal, if someone else of 3061 Happy People posts here [we can take a call on this thread...]- we can get started right away- for just after the rains is the best time to plant Neem Trees.

    2. As discussed among 17 of us today - we will next meet at 6.30 AM Saturday at Vasant Vihar side of Bio Diversity Park. There is an old temple and mineral quarries built by the Scindias.

    The simple directions are to enter Vasant Vihar [going left on] Poorvi Marg- the first Marg coming from IIT/Munirka [going towards NH 8] on outer ring road. Keep going straight and it dead ends at Bio Diversity Park. There are Free Street parking on both sides of the road. On return we can have Kulcha choley[muttar] ...or go to Sect. 8 RK Puram for mind blowing Kachori n aloo subji.

    Cheers,

    Suneel
