    Hai team,

    Really I am so happy to be a part of our kanchilug team from the beginning…

    Myself started the kanchilug with 4 friends by the concept of ‘just do it and it leads us’….

    Yes, it leads us upto 100th week of the kanchilug meetup….

    Its great…

    Most importantly, the new kanchilug members have to lead the upcoming lug meetup, by exploring foss and conducting more workshops, LDD, seminars, and more….

    Why cant we set the next 100 weeks goals ?

    Set more goals and keep on walk towards it…

    all the members of the kanchilug, should be with you always to walk behind you (new members of kanchilug)…

    Keep love the foss and freedom…

    Hats off,
