RTI… on Newsrack.in


During the Pune meet, I had mentioned the site where you can keep track of RTI news emerging in the media. Check:

Thanks to Dr Subramaniam Sastry (of Bangalore), who has studied in the US, and devoted part of his energies to find solutions for the civil society in India. Newsrack.in is a great (and free) tool to keep e-track of documentation on any issue you wish. You can search for other keywords you want too… for further help contact the very-help Subramanya Sastry <sastry at cs.wisc.edu>.

PS: Some other groups I mentioned, which you can share your regional campaigns with:

biharchintan : Bihar Chintan
biharchintan: Bihar Chintan. … Subscribe:, biharchintan-subscribe@yahoogroups.co.in. Unsubscribe:, biharchintan-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.co.in …
http://in.dir.groups.yahoo.com/group/biharchintan/

Network for the new Indian state of Chhattisgarh. Mainly meant to promote discussion on the region, specially related to its development and people. This list has been launched by freelance journalist Shubhranshu Choudhary (formerly with the BBC)…

Kerala Thoughts a forum for discussion on Kerala development.

There are other regional lists related to many states, such as Goanet [http://lists.goanet.org/listinfo.cgi/goanet-goanet.org] If you need help to set up one, feel free to get in touch with me. The real challenge is to set up (and succesfully run) Indian-language mailing lists. Take a look at Kamal More’s http://groups.google.com/group/Marathi-Maayboli-Sanwad-Maanch?hl=ab and Googlegroups [http://groups.google.com] seems to be the best place to set this up.See if you can read this on your comp (just a specimen, extract from a poem): बोलकी फुले बोलकी फुले कधी कधी बागेत चालत असता अनेक सुगंध दरवळती अनेक रंग उधळती जणू ती फुल काहीतरी सांगत असावी चालत असतो मी त्या फुलांना पाहत
