Dear Friends,

It is quite painful to note these developments.  In my case too, since
I have resumed today after a long leave, it is impossible for me to
leave at such a short notice.  I am quite shocked that organizations
working in the field are just bowing down to government's whims and
fancies.  Could we not have waited a fortnight or so and then started
the consuntation process once the draft was mulled over and sunkk in?
The process appears to me to be a sham.  We will all be studying the
draft along with all the other activities that we undertake.

We must really think prior to agreeing to be part of such events where
we are merely expected to put a stamp of approval or add to number for
the sake of convenience to the government and Committee.

Best

Ketan
