Respected Sirs and dear friends

Just to inform you all that, with the blessings of all seniors and
friends, today I officially joined Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Gardens
at Hong Kong. It is supposed to be a permanent job (though nothing is
permanent in life) but first 6 months is probation period. I would be
surveying parts of Indo-China and Indo-Malaya Region for Orchids and
also for other plants.

I will also like to inform you that from now onwards, I may not be
able to devote a lot of time as the work is hectic but I will
certainly keep checking the posts and replying where ever needed and I
would also be checking the website for editing purpose.

Regards
Pankaj
