Dear IL'ites, Wondering why this task force group particularly for North Indian members? You might be aware, we already have a few North Indian members in our community. As we grow, we are thinking of ways to get more North Indian members too to our community, that way there will be more discussions related to North Indians that will make them active and feel home. The exposures we got so far in the press, referrals of friends, discussions in our site, etc. attracted more South Indian members here relatively. This does not mean we care less for the majority, it is just extending extra care to the minority to make it "more the merrier!". In fact, we are looking at exposure of this community to N, E, W and S Indians, that way IndusLadies is really a "Global Indian Ladies Community". One of the ideas we have come up with is to form a group called North Indian task force group. Poonamjoshi9266 and Roopadadia are the lead persons of this group. They are going to focus on more North India based discussions in the different forums that will be interesting and useful not only for North Indian Ladies, but informative for all of us. The discussions will be about North Indian festivals, customs, rituals, weddings, cookery, about places of attractions in North India, etc. While they focus on taking lead in initiating such discussions, I request the other North Indian members (also South Indians) to come forward and share more information on that subject and provide your support to keep the discussions lively. Also, please feel free to share other information that will be interesting and useful to North members. Do not forget to wish each other for your special festivals, share what's the special food in your home for the festival, what you wear and what you do as part of the festival. Let's :welcome our lead persons and support them in this initiative. Looking forward to more North Indian friends joining and participating in our community.
