  • Dear friends,

    First wishing you all a very happy new year and our best wishes. In the last year we have had some good activities and we feel we are capable of much more even at the luxury of our own pace and convenience. Hence in spite of the very innovative activities undertaken,there is something that is always wanting and neccessary

    There is very less internal activity from FROST in the last few months, possibly because of the pandemic. Even the monthly meetings have taken a back seat.
    So we bring forth a few proposals that will enhance our visibility and activity, and they are listed here :: Click for Notice -Jan-2021
