I have uploaded some files which our team members have sent me as the part of their homework and research, which was required to be done before the Meeting on Sunday, 20th August: to decide the particulars of the Mumbai NGO(name, vision, mission, bylaws, governance, official structure, etc.)

Other files(Readings on formation of Mumbai, including the files mentioned above) are also accessible at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sif-mumbai/files
Check these files out and lets put your thoughts into discussion with an aim to Freeze matters quickly and comprehensively- we need not spend months in discussing matters which are already pondered upon by eminent predecessors ahead of Mumba-NGO(like Chirag etc. uploaded at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sif-mumbai/files - Chirag's By-laws and Charter of NGO "Chirag": Enabling a Generation, one child at a time ).
Guys do confirm that we can meet at 3 P.M, Galleria shopping mall, Hiranandhani Gradens, Powai on 20th, Sunday, August.
Jinesh, do forward this mail to anyone who has attended our meeting and had expressed willingness to contribute in the making and functioning of the mumbai based NGO(if their emails do not appear in the recepient list of this email)

Subject: Can you send the Bylaws, Articles&Memorandum of association of Asha-Kiran

Do send me these documents by email so that we can deal with these a bit more easier, we could even put a draft of these documents for discussion in the Sunday's(20th august) meeting, else we will have big long-drawn discussions on these matters, while we can just model them on Asha-kiran's well thought-out frameworks.
Why re-invent the wheel, when we can "Touch-down, UP and Running" in mumbai.
Do send the 3 documents(Bylaws, Articles&Memorandum of association of Asha-Kiran) asap.

Asha Kiran's bylaws etc can work for you. We have a chartered
accountant who knows all the procedures.
As more and more NGOs get created in India and Abroad, we can
fight against the unscrupulous women, their parents, pseudo-liberals
and anti-socials in a big way.
