Sometimes something really urgent comes up and schedules do change. I 
recollect, there was a guy from Chennai LUG who was to visit us at Five 
Gardens, Matunga for a LUG meet and we waited for him to turn up but he 
did not. ;) Luckily there was a lot of 'greenery' around so it wasn't 
very boring.

Anyway, I request the organizers to hold meets either from morning or 
early evening. 2 pm is lunch time on a Sunday and it is difficult to 
leave the house then.
