Subject: Some Membership Clarifications
Dated: Aug 25, 2000
Dear Member,

As we come closer to the first cultural concert of this financial
year, the Manna Dey Concert today (Aug 25) at 8:30pm at Chabot
College, Hayward, we take this opportunity to thank each one of
our old members who have taken the initiative to renew their
membership in time. We also welcome the new members who found value
in our package. We will do our best to meet up your expectations
during this year.

We still have to make a couple of clarifications regarding membership


It has come to the attention of the Prabasi Board that some members
have been misinformed about membership due amounts and have therefore
renewed memberships with wrong amounts.  Below are the guidelines for
membership dues.

Please ensure that you comply with these rules :

(a) Student dues are defined as subsidized rates for FULL TIME
    students only who have no other means of income.  Even those full
    time students who have a working spouse/parents do not qualify for
    the discounted rate for students. If you are going to avail a
    student discounted rate for couple, please make sure that BOTH
    couples are full-time students.

    Members who have renewed membership on this basis will not receive
    free tickets for the Manna Dey Concert unless they pay the full
    amount for single/couple membership.

(b) A dependent is considered as a family member who DOES NOT have a
    means of income. This includes children and parents. If your
    parent or child works for a living, you cannot include him/her
    as a dependent.

(c) Only children who are above the age of 5 years will be given a
    seat at the Manna Dey Concert. Only children under the age of 18
    qualify as dependents of parents.


Swagat Restaurant will be catering at Chabot College (Manna Dey
Concert site) from 7:30pm. This is specially for the convenience of
people returning late from office.

Once again if you want to get a FREE Manna Dey concert ticket and have
not yet renewewd your membership, you may do that till 12:00 noon
today. removed...

Directions to reach Chabot College may be obtained from

Sincerely Yours,

- Anupam Bagchi
