Dear All

We are sad to inform you that NBHM (GoI) has declined to fund our workshop due to financial crisis from their side. In this regard we are facing issues and in fact we thought of cancelling the workshop, however there are a few members who expressed their support towards organizing this event. So we are planning to run this workshop with support from many people believing the Archimedian property.

A little financial background(for participants): when it comes to organizing a workshop for about 40 students for 13 days: food, accommodation and travel for the resource persons are the critical dimensions which consumes a huge amount. It cost about 4 lacs for the same. In other-words, on an average we (with government support) used to spend around Rs. 10,000\= for every participants. This is how we had organized in the past. FYI please.

We always serve vegetarian food in our workshops. Even if we arrange a healthy and basic veg food for all of us this time, it cost Rs. 245 per day per head. (Rs 60 for breakfast, Rs. 70 for Lunch and Rs. 65 for Dinner, tea and snacks - twice a day - Rs. 50). In this regard for every one of us we need to spend about Rs. 3000 for the whole of thirteen days (13 days x Rs. 245 = Rs. 3185) for food alone.

Though we had announced Rs. 200 as registration fee, we still keep the same amount as registration fee. In otherwords we dont want to demand more from you. We believe that there may be people who will not be able to afford but very interested in learning Mathematics. However we suggest you to discuss with your parents and see whether you can contribute as much as you can. in other-words you may contribute between 200 and 3000. You are also welcome to contribute more if you can. Please visit the Sponsors tab for further information.

We will take care of the rest of the expenditure. We will be creating a bank account with SBI in this regard and you will have to transfer your contributions into the account. We will also list the contributors in the website ensuring transparency.

Thanks & Regards
