Helloooo, all my 'occssionaly drinking' friends,
JNF 2007 is over.
This is the time we thank each other and brag about the achievments. Then we get back to our daily life and slowly for many of you, the mission of JNF 2007 goes to back burner.
To me this is not the end, this is the beginning. I hope to keep reminding you, sometimes annoy you so that you won't be single by the time JNF 2009, comes around.
I am not sure if JNF 2007 was a success or not. But I must admit I personally enjoyed meeting most of you.
Please feel free to share views, make comments or give costructive criticism so we can do a better job in the future.
Dipen has sent out a survey, please give him your feed back. I have a different approach to feed back. While I do pay attention to the number of people who liked or disliked activities, I am more interested in how to take this to the next level.
If you have any suggestions please share with everyone here. Don't say give us more time in speed dating (it was timed at 2' 15") but tell me you want three minutes. Are you saying cut down the number of people you meet or extend the time? At what point fatiugue sets in. At what point your brain is not processing the information efficiently. What is the best use of two minutes and fifteen seconds. What can be done to use the time more efficiently, etc.
Those of you who have a better concept as to how we should have divided group A and group B let us walk thru entire scenario. How would you suggest we do it?
I am not a planner but executor. To me in a committe majority of seven may be wrong and minority of two might be right. 'One Aye and Nine Neys .. ayes have it!'
My goal was not to make a match.But 1. To give you the tools that will equip you to find that special someone. 2. To inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and put the relationship on top of your agenda. 3. Start with finding new you from within and learn to look beyond the cover. 4. Motivate you to make the move once you sense a potential match, regardless of group A or group B.
Any suggestion you may have I would love to hear.
The biggest challenge of my generation was to overcome the sense of poverty and destitute. To prove to us and the rest of the world that we are next to none.
The challange of your generation is to make sure all this luxry does not come at the cost of Family. The success does not take away your drive and values. I feel your generation have a bigger challenge than mine.
It is seems like 'mission impossible,' but we(desi's) have proved over past 50 years that nothing is impossible for us and I have faith that you -the young adults - will rise to the occassion and make it a 'mission possible'.
