Caught up with a bunch of interesting women at Sumitra Senapathy’s WOW get together on Saturday evening in town. I got there late after battling heavy Bangalore traffic (okay, the usual!) but there was still quite a bit of wine left 🙂
I’ve written about WOW before so I won’t go into details again.
But if you’re interested, her travel schedule in 2008 looks like this:
April: NEW ZEALAND & TURKEY
If you want more information on WOW, you can call Sumitra on 09891655054.
I met a lady called Poorvi who came up to me and said she had first come across WOW on my blog and that’s how she landed up going on a trip with them. Also caught up with Anuradha, who’s quit work and looking rather happy right now! And a very spunky Radio City producer called Pooja (who said she’s read my blog once 🙂 who regaled us about her Sri Lanka trip in great detail and had us in splits!
The theme of the evening was pink and it was interesting to see almost everyone in some shade of pink or the other. Some came fully embellished with accessories in pink too looking really pretty! Unfortunately, I’m not a pink person and possess all of one apparel in pink. So I managed a white kurta with some very “blink and you miss it” pink flowers! The best part was this photographer who landed up at around 930 when everyone was getting ready to disperse. Pg 3 he declared and was surprised that this party was getting over so early 🙂
All in all, a great fun evening and I wish I’d gotten a little earlier. But next time!

WOW groups are a fun loving combo of young, not-so-young and young at heart!!

I am from Mumbai,
I am interested in joining the group. Please let me know your forth coming india & overseas tour,
I have been enviously reading about WOW for some time now. Boo hoo – you guys don’t operate in Delhi and its environs. Met Shobha Mohan a few days back and both of us wowed about you!
Are you planning anything at all – this side of the Yamuna. I am a part time Tour Manager for Inbound tours. Would love an opportunity to work with you – start a WOW franchise here in North India. Or have you done that already.
I have been reading about WOW and Sumitra on the web with fascination. I am one of those ‘urban, well-off, single’ women and am keen to join the gang of girls at WOW. I have only just moved to Mumbai and am looking for things to do on my weekends. Is there something happening in and around Mumbai? I’d love to be a part of it.
May WOW bloom and grow forever
HI WOW ians
Nice to know that there are many sharing with me the same passion to travel.Just let me know if something is happeneing in Coimbatore. A get-to-gether may be. I would also like to join on tours in future.
i heard about wow on in 2008. I guess read about it.
I have some queries.
i have a person and a friend in australia who manages my travels abroad.
ususally its with my husband.
but i read the blog and the pics and this surely seems to be a great option. to travel with women. I would love a change.
i have some queries:
Would you be kind enough to answer them for my satisfaction?
1. do you have a place in Ahmedabad and in kolkata where i can meet up with friends? I am married in kolkata and need some good lady friends.
2. i understand that we are all included in an all women group. so is it so that we always have to stick to the group. is every thing a group activity? Or can we take out a short time off for a single activity, like shop, adventure or meet up with a friend and return to the safety of the group?
3. do we know before hand who our group members are going to be?
4. Can i also deviate sometimes from the itinenary miss?
looking forward to answers
