नमस्ते Partha and welcome to Tripatini! Great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Travel Marketers/Publicists, India, Seychelles, Hotels/Motels, Resorts Corner, Eating/Drinking the World, Music & Travel, our French language/culture club, and plenty of others covering many topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, and your work (please feel free to name your companies and clients; that will help both you and our other members, particularly media).
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and clients. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!).
Thanks much for joining us, Partha; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
