India's Silent Contribution To Linux Now Rapidly Getting Noticed

There are many Linux groups across various cities and states of India,

which can be found via www.yahoogroups.com. Of course, more active groups

like those in Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai and Kolkata have their own busy

mailing-lists which can be located by searching the Net.

This is only the beginning. As many more enter the field -- and get inspired

by the work of their classmates and colleagues -- more such initiatives

could burst forth on the scene. In time, this could become a self-fulfilling

prophecy, as India's contribution to GNU/Linux gets recognised worldwide.

Asian contribution to GNU/Linux.
