This was the first time that Mulkh Singh took this initiative to share information about an event with everyone in a detailed manner. Charan Gill added his comments during the discussion. It was decided at the end of the meeting that there should be offline meetup very soon with all precautions from COVID-19. It will be helpful as volunteers are being inactive so meetup is necessary to boost them up.
