23 December 2003, Navi Mumbai, India
Visit to the Venue
The RSCD team on 19th December, 2003 had a brief visit to the venue of WSF
2004. The ground is being cleaned up and preparations are going on for
building stalls. Interestingly, the workers who were put at the task did
not know much about the WSF. When asked, they replied that all this work is
going on for a program, which will be attended by Nelson Mandela. This may
be considered as an example of how the common person in India views this
activity. It is habitual to identify towering personalities rather than the
Hotel Inter Continental (Near Mumbai Airport) is close to the venue. It
took us only 15 minutes to travel by a cab (known as ’Taxi’ here in
Mumbai). We spent only 60 Indian Rupees (little more than one US$).
RSCD, IRFT and VACHAN
RSCD teammates had a meeting with Arun RASTE (International resource for
Fair Trade) and Ashwini KULKARNI (Vachan) on 19th December. We have
discussed the logistics, events, and stalls. This meeting will be helpful
in attaining better coordination at the Mumbai level. The next meeting is
scheduled on 26th December. We have invited Siddhartha for that meeting.
WSF has agreed to allot three stalls to Alliance 21. By Tuesday evening,
RSCD will be completing the formalities of paying the fees by Demand draft.
Let’s now have a thought over how do we make the stall attractive and
interesting for WSF participants. We also need to think what materials
Allies will display. How this is to be presented and who will present it?
Suggestions in this regard are welcome!
WSF is going to send e-mails of confirmation to those who have registered
their Events. These confirmations are expected in this week itself.
