Hi Beta(Since you sign your email that way)

This, I feel, is a very clean way of structuring this talk. I am 
definitely interested to attend all the three parts. Keep all of us 
posted on when this is going to happen.  Since I am relatively new to 
Pune and dont know many people yet , I am unable to pitch in with 
helping you find a suitable venue,etc... I hope someone will volunteer 
for this and this talk will materialize.
