FELLOWSHIP IS…TRAVELLING TOGETHER!!

On the 31st December morning 5:30 am, Surat LC 72 and Surat RT 135,Tablers, Circlers and twinklers, along with past circlers and 41’ers gathered  at a common meeting point to board the bus for a surprise venue.

The fellowship started that very moment. We all enjoyed masala chai. Everyone was so enthusiastic. It was dark and the roads were silent, but our group was enthusiastic to witness never ending fun.

The bus started and everyone began chit chatting and sharing plethora  of dry snacks. From mysore pak to patra to thepla..the list is unending.

We stopped for breakfast and continued the journey after that. It was Antakshari time…Boys vs Girls and it was a beautiful musical journey where time just flew.

SURPRISE UNVEILED!!

We had finally arrived at NATVENTURE  camp site in d middle of a jungle kind of a place. As we arrived, the place had a very fresh and positive vibe. Greenery all around, and no mobile signals!!

We enjoyed simple yet super delicious and healthy lunch together. It was now time to head to the rooms.

BUNKER BEDS & COMMON ROOM

As we proceeded towards the rooms we found that all the girls had to stay in a common room together and all the guys had a similar arrangement.

The room was huge and we had numerous bunker beds.

Everyone immediately remembered their hostel life and school trips. Childhood visited everyone’s thoughts.

TIME FOR ACTIVITIES AND FUN

We all got fresh and there were various physical activities waiting for us. We were divided in teams and the activities included …crossing the Burma bridge and Flying Fox.

Each and every person participated very actively in all the activities with full team spirit. Then we did the hurdle crossing together and accomplished each task successfully.

It was evening and everyone refreshed themselves with tea, coffee and snacks.

PARTY TIME!!

It was the last evening of 2016. And everyone got ready to rock and roll.We enjoyed watching the THABA dance performed by the local people .

Then the DJ took over and we all danced around the bon fire till the clock struck 12. It was midnight and under a star studded sky we hugged each other and wished for the new year to bring along loads of love and happiness.

Everyone enjoyed dinner and it was time to bond and chit chat after the party was over.

MORNING !!! ….Another lovely day awaits you…

It was 7:30 am in the morning and everyone was spotted enjoying the morning tea in their pyjamas.

After we had breakfast we were again divided in teams and we did the treasure hunt challenge.

It was a fantastic game with people hunting for clues,running around in the entire area from left to right.

LEMME MAKE MY OWN SAIL!!

Another unforgettable activity was making a raft with bamboo sticks and tube tyres and and tying it all  together with jute ropes and carrying it all the way to the river , on shoulders and sailing it in the river.

The amount of fun we had while making the boat and then sailing it,cannot be measured. The children and adults,everyone had fun swimming in the river and sailing.

Now it was time for some amazing rain dance with the music playing loud.

After that we all had a bath and enjoyed super yummy lunch.

THE PARTY ISNT OVER YET!!

It was now time to pack up and gather for tea. Soon after the tea break,we sat in the bus to head back home.

The fun didn’t end here!!

We played housie and chit chatted all the way. The bus was full of noise and laughter. In spite of doing so many activities, nobody was tired.

We then stopped at the highway for dinner and headed home laughing, eating, singing and making merry…taking back loads of good moments and the memory of a new year,we will remember our entire life!!!

GARDEN SOCIAL

Tr Pulkit and Tr Animesh along with Cr Aditi and Cr Bhavna had planned a Garden Social with Live Music and Bon-fire on 11th December, 2016 at Goenka House. In the social the entire family of ART-40 and ALC-64 were invited

The host had personally called each and every Tabler, Circler and 41ners to attend the social. They had prepared a beautiful flyer which was promoted on our Tabling Groups. At the beginning of the party the host had served us with Hot Soup, Starters and Pani-Puris. The evening weather was cold enough to make all of us sit near the bon-fire and enjoy the hot delicacies with the tabling buddies.

Post the welcome was over the host had involved all the participants in Couple Games. In one of the games the couples were paired together and the guy was given a white plain paper to hold while the girl was given lipsticks. The girl had to use the lipstick and kiss the paper within one minute. The paper having maximum kisses was declared the winner. Post couple games, we had played Housie where all the members including twinklers were actively involved.

Once the games were over, the dinner was served to all the members present. The dinner menu consisted of Italian, Punjabi and Oriental Food which was relished by all of us. The fried ice-cream was the icing on the cake. Once the dinner was over we all did Couple Dance with the Live Music. The bollywood songs didn’t allow us to leave before 11:30 in the evening.

We really had a great time playing games, enjoying food and music and creating a bond among friends.

Thank you, Tr Animesh, Tr Pulkit, Cr Aditi, Cr Bhavna for giving us suchwonderful memories.

Fellowship: Movember fun @ Vizag RT 77

MOVEMBER (NO SHAVE NOVEMBER ) FELLOWSHIP

No shave November or Movember is a concept where in one doesn’t shave for the entire month of November and grows a long beard . So , to keep up with that spirit and challenge , some of the tablers maintained their beards for more than a month.

As  November is coming to an end , our “OUT OF THE BOX” fellowship convener, Tr . Naveen Perla decided to call for a fellowship at TEA TRAILS  café to showcase each other’s beards .

Some of us were able to maintain the beards well whereas others shaved it off. Nonetheless those you kept up to the challenged flaunted their beards with pride while others just joined in to watch the fun .

Tr . Naveen is well known for his whacky ideas. He carried shaving cream to the café and tried to shave everyone who had beards, thankfully it wasn’t shaving cream , it was just party snow  (haha)

This fellowship was very chilled out where we just sat in a tea café that specializes in serving different types of tea . We kept ordering food and as the food and teas arrived, we relished every bit of it . This reminded us of our college days where in we would  spend time sitting in the canteen ordering food till we would have to be forced to leave . It was a similar situation here, only we were not forced to leave .We had good participation from tablers, ladies and Sq.legs so as and when more people started coming in , we realized that we were going to be here for a while  and kept ordering more food .We just couldn’t stop eating . We kept the fellowship fun and entertaining by making the most noise at our table and pulling each other’s  legs . We made so much noise that the waiter was having a tough time keeping up with the orders.

All in all another awesome fellowship to remember for 77
