The Way Forward:

Jam-e-Jamshed will carry an advertisement for the event on Sunday, 6th May 2012 to inform the community about the event. Press Releases and Media Houses need to be called and spoken to over the next week and we would request various reporters to cover the event. Flyers have been printed and will be distributed to various colonies and buildings. Invitations will be sent to numerous community members who have helped us in the past and sponsored our events. Volunteers will need to be called to help out over the 3 days. Massive messages and tags have to go up on facebook to make the youth aware of this initiative

There is an OC Meeting organised on Sunday 6th May 2012 at 12:00pm at Rustom Baug to confirm all the requirements of the venue and the event. This meeting will help all to understand the way forward.
