Chennai Alumni Meet - a Report


Special thanks to PNS, Suresh Reddy, G Sreenivasan (GS), Sethu and MKR Karthik for helping with getting the whole evening off the ground. We had close to 50 people turning up, including the classes of 2008 & 2009.

No music, no speeches, just one distraction (more on that later), meant that folks had a lot of opportunity to catch up with each other - there were enough decibels for some folks in the next hall to walk in and 'request' us to pipe down; but on a Friday evening? Fat chance!

We'll do it again - maybe a few months later!!

The distraction? A quiz on Jampot & XL. Questions are given below.... answers later!
