FELLOWSHIPS @ AREA 2

October 2013

MKRT181 Prospect Manish's induction took place in style, in the sea, on a luxury yacht, by our AST, on Gandhi Jayanthi (Do not mistake it as Grandhi Jayanthi). Tablers of 181 on the dry day decided to stay on the waters in a luxury yacht at 4 PM and had 4 hours of a super ride in the sea which was an pout of the workd experience. Tr.Vinay Grandhi's residence was high on fellowship when 181'ers joined together for a game of cards. This game of cars went on for hours past midnight and a night well spent. One fine evening FC Tr.Kaval felt like playing cricket. One message in whats app and in no time a group of 181ers assembled at Netz Cricket, Citi Center and played. Cricket lasted for 2 hours, fun lasted longer and body ache lasted the longest. 181'ers were the first one to light the fe s t i ve m o o d a t Ko d a m b a k k a m . Tr.Lankesh induction party and 181's Diwali Night was hosted at Cine City. The twinklers were thrilled and the 10000 wala brought the busy roads of Kodambakkam to a still for a few minutes. After crackers it was crooning - a professional Karoke facility was available and all that Tablers, Circlers and Twinklers did was sing, sing, sing and then sing. Tr. Balaji invited all 181ers to join him in celeberating Kolu. It was nice to see the Kolu collection at his place. Sunday afternoon, 181ers met at Mainland China for the luch meet hosted by Tr. Rahul and Cr. Bhawana. [15]
