The dates now proposed by the Institute of Tropical Meteorology in Pune are
Dates of SSC Meeting: February 2-3, 1999 (Wed, Thu).
Dates of 'PAGES Workshop on South Asian
Palaeoenvironments' (PW-SAP): February 4-5, 1999 (Fri, Sat).
Dr Rupa Kumar Kolli, who is organising the visit poses the following question:
"Regarding the excursion, do you think the SSC members will be able to
days for an overnight trip to the Ajanta and Ellora caves ? This trip costs
around US $100 per head inclusive of transport, refreshments and a night's stay
in 5-star hotel (provided a minimum participation of about 12 persons is
assured). If a majority of the members are unable to find time, we will
other interesting places closer to Pune. In any case, we would prefer to have
the excursion immediately before the SSC meeting."
This may indeed be an exciting experience (how many of you saw "Passage to
India"?) and it would be very helpful to have some idea of how keen you
would be to spend two days on this excursion, bearing in mind that it
would, I think, be appropriate for us to make some personal financial
contribution (as well as for PAGES to offer modest subsidy).
Please let me know your response to the above as soon as possible.
With best wishes,
