A different job fair. For those differently abled

Live-Connections is conducting a special job fair this weekend for the differently enabled. Called LivEnable ’08, it will feature companies in the IT, ITES and Banking sectors. Personally, I think it is a good idea.

In the words of Muralikrishna, who’s behind LiveConnections,

LivEnable ’08, a non-profit initiative that focuses on identifying resources among the Differently Enabled & Physically Challenged. They are conducting a job fair this weekend for the differently. It not only provides an opportunity to recruit candidates of employer’s interest, but also highlights the eminence of the company that provides equal opportunities.

The fair is on the 2nd February, 2008 at the MCC School grounds, in Chetpet. If you are interested in taking part in the fair, call 044 4391 1622 or check out LiveEnable ’08.

P.S. I know I have to respond to two questions on Madras Trivia I asked earlier. Will do so soon, with photographic evidence.

Well, you’ll all be pleased to note that I found my waffles after a friend (tried of my endless wheedling, no doubt) took me to the Park Sheraton breakfast buffet.

Chennai Ultimate Frisbee Tournament

Sometime back I had written about this small Chennai Ultimate Frisbee (CUF) club and how a bunch of us love playing this basket-ball cross of rugby game. Since then CUF has grown big time and what more? The CUF tournament is on the cards.

The tournament will be held this weekend and the finals will take place next weekend. There are four teams taking part in this event and with 4 games scheduled each day, this tournament promises to deliver some high speed action (not to mention the test of stamina). The matches are scheduled at 6:00 am to 8:00 am this Saturday at Bessie beach, near the Memorial.

Be there to cheer us, to click some beautiful snaps or just plainly boo away the opposite teams (Look, without Vatsan in my team I am plainly counting on your support).

Disco Diwali

The day before diwali happened to be my birthday and i was seeing a couple of friends at mocha. I knew these folks had a disco setup there during festival days!
