    Tom thought would have been great to go with them to Shiv mandir.

    The people of the XYZ society left their society with the procession that was being carried out on the ocacasion of Shivaratri. They were with Shivtandav band. One the members of the society named Tom had called this band because according to him it would have been great to with them to the nearest temple of lord Shiva (if we say because Tom thought it would be great to go with them that is why he had called them it would be correct. But would it be correct to say "Tom thought it would have been great to go with them?).

    One more question "if we say XYZ it would be correct" is this correct? Or do we need to say "if we say XYZ it wil be correct"?

    Please check and correct my sentences and please guied me.

    First, what do you mean by "The people of XYZ left their society ..."?

    Come on Tufguy. You know better than to make those mistakes in formulating a question by now.

    Is there an official society called the "People of the Galaxy Apartments Society"?

    It is correct to use "Tom thought it would be ...".

    Secondly "If we say XYZ would it be correct" is right and "will it be" is not.

    The organization would be The Galaxy Apartments Society, and the people the owners of the individual apartments. Housing Societies are what we would call Condominium Corporations in AmE. I don't know the BrE equivalent.

    Sorry for the mistake. No, it is not official it is just the name of a housing society where people live in their purchased appartments.

    Re: Tom thought would have been great to go with them to Shiv mandir.

    I'm going to step out of this thread because we don't have any sort of housing complex that has "society" in the official or unofficial title. Here, we would just say that the residents of the Galaxy Apartments left [the building] to join a procession.
