I do second Avinash's sentiments, sharing of knowledge and information is
always welcome on the AccessIndia list.
The list serves various segments of this specialised community.
It is only from genuine passion that folks post on unearthly hours as you
Would of course appreciate, if the posters were mindful not to post private
messages on the list.
This is within limits and we do strive to keep unnecessary traffic to the
In conclusion, please keep your posts going with a small caution to make
sure, if the post is doing some value addition.
