And Finally,

Kanchilug is having an idea to celebrate SFD in Kanchipuram before on 18 Sept or after one week.

We decided to celebrate SFD in Kanchipuram to give the awareness to public. We discussed what are all the possibilities to conduct the SFD. The only thing was cost resource. We estimated the total cost based on the expenses that would occur. and  The expenses would be approximately 7500 Rupees for SFD in Kanchipuram and KLUG have 1000 as an initial amount. If We have enough sponsors from someone who supports us for the SFD to be celebrated in Kanchipuram, it will be possible to conduct it this year. Possibly we expect that we will get sponsors.Otherwise, we  look forward to celebrate it in the next year at our own cost.

Guest all coming from ilugc, mit, avit, jaya engg for SFD.
