    It was a very interesting meeting with a powerful theme’Sharpen your Saw’,Hats off to Praveen.
    TM George has improved a lot in his TM journey and it was clearly noticeable in his ‘Call to Order’.
    Excellent word ‘AMALGAM’,we will start including the word in our daily communications.
    New Toastmaster Bilal done a wonderful job by doing the Table Topic Session in a proper way.
    TM Loy’s Educational session was an informative one,I have a suggestion in such sessions, either the content can be reduced or duration can be increased then it will be useful to the members.
    Speeches,evaluations were added value to the meeting,members who couldn’t attend missed it.
    Joke Master TM Prabhakar’s session was the icing on the cake,keep it up.
    Excellent observation by dynamic TM Balakrishnan sir justified his role as Fine Timer.
    Sunita Nair’s point by point evaluation was very interesting as usual.
    All other Silent Role Players contributed significantly for the success of the meeting.
