2nd December 2006 When we queued up at Mumbai National Airport the late morning of 3rd December on our way to Goa, we had mixed feelings. Continuously pampered by our hosts and friends during the last three weeks, we had to adjust. When we took farewell from Sudanshu Jain and his father, Mr. S. M.

30th November 2006 We started to feel a little hungry meanwhile, but forgot about with all the wonderful activities of this day.
