Mumbai - Annual Meet of SHSI

So, boys and girls, I present to you the location of our very first annual meet - MUMBAI!! Aamchi Mumbai, Maximum City - call it what you will.

Mumbai (or Bombay, as we sometimes end up saying), here we come!

Dates - if you have not noted it down so far: 24 August 2013 - 25 August 2013.

The poll results - well, Mumbai won by a landslide, really - both on this blog and on Facebook - here, take a look:

So, Sherlockians, Holmesians - pack your bags and get ready for the meet!

We need to set up an Organisation Committee - members will get a certificate and a gift. Volunteers, please write to us at shsieditors@yahoo.in or shsieditors@gmail.com. Mumbaikars...speak up!! At least half the Committee needs to be based in Mumbai...

Speakers/presenters - please let us know at shsieditors@yahoo.in or shsieditors@gmail.com. Yes, we shall have certificates and gifts for the speakers/presenters as well.

Costs/fees - TBD - will depend on the Organisation Committee. Goes without saying, it will be kept as low as possible. (Anyone know any rich people willing to sponsor? Please drop us a line!)

    1. Hi, Farhan - book something near the airport - I'd suggest Bandra/Santa Cruz/Andheri - we have not finalised the venue yet, but it will be in that area. If you would like to go sightseeing, though, you may want to book something in South Mumbai. Mobility will not be an issue in Mumbai.
