  • Dear SPS,

    My hearty wishes for the great meet.

    I will try my level best to participate but chances are less as I have already planned the Coimbatore Trip directly from here. However I sincerely hope all our active members of PSVP at Chennai will participate and make it as huge sucess.

  • Dear Sri Dhivakar,

    We are trying to take advantage of many delegates reaching Chennai around that time prior to the Chemmozhi conference.

    For us in PS Group - we are familiar with several of them.

    But there are several others who could not interact likewise.

    The arrangement is to open that Window for them too.

    Will revert on Tuesday / wednesday.

    We will be missing you !!
