We plan to go to Salboni this year during 20-23 March, 2008, for
our annual tour. We shall put up in the Mint Guest House there and
visit the mint on 21 March (Fri) in addition to other sight-seeing.
Mr Swapan Naskar and Mrs Piya Naskar are arranging the details.
We plan to start on 20 March (Thu) by Purulia Exp leaving Howrah
at 16:45 reaching Salboni at around 20:00 (reservation available).
Other options, those who cannot take Purulia Exp, are to travel by
Siromoni Memo leaving Howrah at 17:45 (no reservation) or by Rupasi
Bangla next morning at 6:00 from Howrah (reservation available). As
we gather, there will be no disturbance due to Holi at salboni on
the 21st. We return by Purulia Exp on 23 March (Sun) leaving Salboni
at 8:30 AM to reach Howrah at around 11:30 AM. We expect the total cost
for a family of size 3 to be around Rs 1000/-.
Please join and make this annual tour a memorable experience for all
of us. Since we need to reserve the seats in train, book guest house
and enroll our names for the visit to mint well in advance, it is
important that you confirm your participation as soon as you can and
please pay some advance (Rs 500/-) to any EC member.
