Meeting Notes!  Thanks for the great yeoman service.
This team of members have done a wonderful job in reviving Mumbai ILUG.

Wonderful.  Encourage them to bring their friends next time and who in
turn will spread the word around and so on.
Are you also announcing the meetings on MeetUp, FB, Twitter etc.

This is kind of open ended.

Others have commented very well on Tally and it's alternatives.  On
.NET, I am not a developer but what I have heard from others, it is
possible to do .NET development on Linux.  I guess this is a good
starting point <https://goo.gl/9x6zux>.  This might all be CLI;  for
the CLI impaired it might still be an issue.

Sigh.  I believe it's the same at the Univ. level save and except one
semester course on basic CLI on Redhat 9 (the last I heard a couple of
years back).
