However last monday an hour before Statistical Thermodynamics quiz , i happened to check my mail , and ROOM NO 368 got this .

"Acceptance letter Tuesday, October 15, 2008

Dear Applicant,

Congratulations on being selected for the Tata Jagriti Yatra 2008! There were several excellent candidates that applied and you should be justifiably proud of your achievement.

Our Yatra will begin on 24th Dec. 2008 in Mumbai and end on 11th Jan 2009 also in Mumbai. The countdown has already begun!"

So its official out that I have been selected for Jagriti Yatra.
For those who are not really sure about what they are reading --

Tata Jagriti Yatra '08 (December 24th 2008 - January 11th, 2009) is an annual train journey that will take 350 of India's highly motivated youth (with some participation of international students) between the ages of 18-25 on a eighteen day national odyssey, introducing them to unsung heroes of India. The aim is to awaken the spirit of entrepreneurship - both social and economic - within India's youth by exposing them to individuals and institutions that are developing unique solutions to India's challenges. Through this national event we will inspire them to lead and develop institutions nationally and within their communities.

Looking forward to meet 400 intellectually mature people

Looking forward to a adventure with a group of like minded individuals
