Hey guess what I also wrote letters and not just to DHS but to lot many. So should I claim credit for visa bulletin too?
Just because a lawyer said something doesn't make all our efforts vanish! Besides, even if a lawyer claims that he/she is the one to make this a success; does it really matter? As long as we achieve our aims... does it matter who "claims" credit for it?

Everyone likes to believe that they made a difference. However small their contribution may be, it is still a contribution! Who knows, it might be that small contribution that makes the difference!

Try to look at the big picture: If we can get them to help our cause that is at least another person on our side.

Think about it... the flower campaign started from a few individuals and was not endorsed by IV until the story was published on the Times of India. By then a lot of people had already mailed their flowers. My point is... It does not matter who started or contributed more in the effort. What matters is the final outcome - whether it was successful or not. The fact is that the flower campaign would not have been the success it was without the support of IV and that is all that matters! So if getting help from those lawyers helps our cause.. go ahead and do it!

Keep your eye on your goals and not whether you get the glory.

Default Charter Buses for Rent (for the proposed Dandi March!)

If we can get groups of people in major metro areas together then renting a bus is probably an option. Check this website: http://www.busrates.com. it may be possible to get bulk discounts.

I am sure we can similarly make arrangements for lodging at discounted rates in D.C. and nearby areas.

Eternal Hope good idea about bus rentals.

As far as "Dandi" march, my personal opinion is not to give this rally a Gandian or Indian association. Dandi march and all my get the American media romantic about Gandhi but may hurt our cause by restricting it to India. Chinese, Mexican, Phillipino and other nationalities may not be able to associate well with such an idea.

Lets nip this idea in the bud and try to project IV as a broad based organization.

Totally agree with you.

If the recently concluded successful campaign is any indication, the rally needs to be more than just a rally for the media to catch major attention. If we can somehow relate the message and the purpose of this rally in some creative (and meaningful) way that would be great. I seriously feel the pre-rally preparation and the associated PR is extremely critical to make the actual rally successful. Hopefully over the next few weeks we IV members will be able to come up with an innovative theme/battle-cry for the rally.

Not confirmed but its unlikely to begin before 9:00. If you can reach there by 9:00 you should be fine. We will confirm the route and timing in 2 days.

Thumbs up Tshirt with company names

I really like the idea of wearing tshirts with company or university names...It will showcase our skilled or education background.
