Delhi Caferati Anniversary Meet

Date/Time: Sun Oct 23, 2005 3:00 pm
Defence Colony
New Delhi, Delhi, India

RSVP: 9810276077

We can't do it next week or the week after that or the week after that and then we're almost in December. And we can't let the real anniversary of the Delhi Read-Meets go un-toasted. So, come and read and listen. Something special perhaps? And do confirm aye or nay. Any of you from out of town in Delhi over this weekend, you know you're welcome.

PLEASE try and let me know in advance if you are reading.

For first - timers : we share our original writing in English with the group. You could read fiction, poetry, essays, scripts, screen scenarios - anything that can be read / sung / perfomed aloud!

The usual time slot is ten minutes per person, to allow as many people as possible to read. This is broken up into eight minutes for your reading, and two minutes for questions and critiquing by other members.


(If you haven't done so already, please join Caferati's Delhi googlegroup at to keep track of this and future events.)

Cheers - Anita
