Since people have been meeting, talking, planning, it should not be
difficult for them to go through the process, including discussing

Yes, except that IMHO the word "with" is exaggerated - i've been
playing a weak support role - see
for more info about the history of IMC India over the past 4 1/2 years.
Please correct any misleading/incorrect information there or add
