Thanks Prabha!

We are thankful to Smitha who choose a good icon for our Chennai group.

Makes sense to post photos right here than in the photograph. (We originally created that because new members kept uploading photography projects into the gallery.)

Comment by Muralidharan Alagar on March 12, 2013 at 10:13am

We were little hesitant to break the tradition of posting photos in Photograph. We shall use our group now on. Thanks for the clarification George!

On 14th April- Sunday- (Tamil New Year and Vishu).. if we can meet a bit later ..say around 9.30a.m. in some shady place, I think we can persuade Kalpana to do a session on shading, which she has finally offered(!) and she also has plans for some demo type excercises.So if its a comfortable place like Cholamandal- can we do this for 14th and try to fix another interesting public space for next Sunday? Kalpana please  come in to confirm if enough people agree? Thanks

Cholamandal may be the best place to sit and discuss. Lets meet at Cholamandal on 14th April 2013.

Hi all, Nithya has been after me to give her a session on shading :)

It will be nothing elaborate as I am no expert. After some steady pressure from her I had mentioned that I will do it some time. But I'm really not sure if I can make it to Cholamandal this sunday .... so I think it will be best for this session to happen when I am able to volunteer myself for sure.

 Hi all, the '' Theosophical Society '' manager in charge is not in town. So this Sunday 21st April, is out of question. 

Comment by Ganapathy Subramaniam (GS) on April 24, 2013 at 8:22pm

Since it seems a lot of fun, should we repeat Marina coming weekend? I am sure those of us who missed it will agree.. 

Comment by Nithya Balaji on May 8, 2013 at 7:30pm

Coming Sunday-

lets  find an air-conditioned lovely sketch in super comfort 

Agni Nakshatram is here and we deserve some treat.

How about Express mall courtyard.Then we can also find cool drinks and ice cream to fortify ourselves? we can alsosleep late and go in by 11 a.m. as they open only then?
