This year’s Gondwana Club elections have thrown up surprise. Outgoing President Balaji Buty got 441 votes lost the post. 2 of his panel members too lost.

Nagpur Today learnt that the new body has promised better and tighter finance control and management. They also aim to build Badminton courts and improve sports facilities at the club.

With a Parsee at the helm of affairs we also hope that we will get more delectable cuisine at the restaurant and in fact there will be a choice of restaurants available.

Members also wish for a better equipped library and more affiliations.
