As some of you know, I have been organising a regular monthly get-together of like-minded fellow citizens and concerned Indians in London since the Mumbai Remembrance event that we did in December.
The meetings have continued steadily since the first follow-up in January. The mailing list now includes around 40 people…and we always run short of time (though rarely on food!).
In between the discussions and shared pizzas, we have also managed to raise funds for Loksatta and ADR (Election Watch).
The next meeting is on Monday (27th April) and the agenda is “Jammu & Kashmir“. I will be sharing these slides to set the stage for a (hopefully) lively discussion on 27th eve. Do have a look – especially at the last slide titled, “Points for discussion…”. This is a very complex subject, almost impossible to be covered in the course of an evening but I would like everyone to think of ways in which a solution can be found/issue could be resolved.
By way of background reading, have a look at some of the posts under the “Jammu and Kashmir” category on this blog.
We will also be raising funds for “Empowering India” during the course of the evening. More on Empowering India can be found here.
Comments and thoughts welcome, as always.
