Common activities means better friends

If you want to make new friends, there is no use in just saying hi to people, something of value should be exchanged or there should be a common activity. That's when they become friends. Real friends.

I've added a page on my wiki to list the type of common activities possible in India right from cycling to movie appreciation. Let me know if I can add more variety to the given mix of activities. I'm interested in figuring out what activities do people take up.

Meeting very often & supporting each other

Sridhar says:

I love, which has groups for all the activities you mentioned above plus a lot more..
Apart from hiking meets, I meet a lot of really interesting people during photography meetups.. and sometime just 20/30s meetups where people are just out for a game of laser tag or paint ball.

how about gyming ?

Swaroop says:

@Girish That is how traditional friends are made, but I believe that a common activity will make that bond even more strong.

@Sridhar: Good tips!

@Animesh: Yes, that's a possibility, but it's difficult in that environment because of more focus on time spent and hence lesser interactions.

You forgot music. Like thinkers and enthusiasts generally meet in/after classes to discuss more and probably jam in !
