This is how the whole AID group came together for the first time, from different colleges and different fields to try something that'll turn out real well...

Something interesting happened. It started with a meeting somewhere in sp verma road called by Ashish ranjan sir. And a half a hour trip, 2 bottles of water and almost as much sweat later....i got to this corporation bank building hid away in a bylane in sp verma road. First i was skeptical about what it would be all about but was delighted to know that i was invited(though no invitations are required whatsoever) to be part of a social responsibility circle(or something similar). I was pretty impressed by the fact that the conference room was full of people. People i don know and a few of the seniors who were very welcoming. That meant that i could meet alot of other people who i didnt know before. Socialising opportunity 101.

Some of the people turned out to be from other nearby colleges like CNLU, arts and crafts college and a few media based colleges. This, i know because all the people who attended were asked to introduce themselves to the group. During all of what happened next, people were streaming in and the number of people had swelled such as to occupy all the seats in the conference room.

The meeting started with a brief introduction to AID and then people were asked to share their own experiences with social work. After a few presentations and a round of chai we discussed what we thought would help the community here.

The meeting can be attended by everyone and it is not restricted in any way. Anyone who has a wish to serve a helping hand and also leanr a few skills along the way like the website maintenance and video editing jobs, which in the long run will help alot. So all ya guys are invited if you are interested...every thing is non-formal and is not like a class-room environment but a open discussion. We decieded that we could have like a meeting every month on a sunday and most of the jobs are done online through emails.

So everyone will be more than glad to have you guys in it cos the whole group realises that every single person has a valuable talent.
