Completing 2 years on YS of MI

Completing 2 years on YS of MI 
My first poem on YS of MI was published on Teachers’ Day 5th Sept 2008.It was titled “Limericks on Delhi”.Next posting on 6th Sept 2008 was also on limericks,titled “Computimericks”. (limericks on computers).It has been an enjoyable journey of self-quest,self expression,self discovery,making friends,exchanging ideas,winning love affection and appreciation and above all-making a place in the hearts of many members of Muse India family.YS and MI have become a daily habit now.And,to some extent,I have been able to spread cheers and smiles… A BIG THANK YOU to you all at MUSE India.
A Suggestion : 
I have a humble suggestion to make. I observe that quite a significant number of members of MI (around 13 on the first count..may be some are left out) are from New Delhi and nearby areas like Noida,Gurgaon etc.Why not  make an attempt to gather once in a while at some convenient place or at each others place turn by turn to discuss poetry,recite poetry,celebrate some occasions etc over a cup of tea or a lunch or a dinner etc.Frequency,modalities,etc can be mutually discussed and decided.We can call it “MUSE INDIA NEW DELHI NCR CHAPTER” say.Once the matter receives in principle clearance from Dr Mallick ji and GSP Rao ji,we can think of planning and moving ahead in this direction.

    Dear Broca, Congratulations on completing 2 year probation on the site… Now you are the official humourist of YS!! The one person who has diligently stuck to wisecracks or old filmsongs in all postings and responses is you. Thanks for the cheer and light-heartedness you have brought to this forum. May you continue to regale us, Muse-icians, the term you coined!

    Yes, it will certainly be a good idea for the Delhi members to meet occasionally over a chai (or ‘chaat’) somewhere. For that I think you have the requisite quorum. I can pass on the details of other Delhi based members of MI who may not be so active on YS. You could invite them as well. ‘Muse India New Delhi Chapter’ sounds appropriate. What does NCR stand for in your suggestion? For quite sometime I have been toying with the idea of such chapters in those cities where there are sufficient number of members. May be members of other major cities could also look into such a possibility. Warm wishes,

    Dear Rao ji,
    Thanks for your response to my suggestion about thinking of starting a MI chapter here in Delhi.NCR means National Capital Region which includes Delhi,Gurgaon,Noida and Faridabad-
    which are all adjacent to Delhi. I have started compiling a list of members-active
    inactive, or dormant-of MI and will start collecting other info like contact details,their family details,etc and then forward it to you.You can also forward data you have with you so that
    all info can be consolidated.I humbly suggest you post a suitable message to this effect
    on YS calling for details like full postal address,e-mail id,mobile and land line numbers,details of family membersetc.Intrested persons can be asked to give some more suggestions too with a view to make the suggested platform a really meningful and worthwhile effort.
    Thanks for your best wishes.
