Would you please contact the candidates who are interested and
request them to join this group. Also, express their plan
responding to the poll.
Regarding the people who are interested from other parts of India, I
would like to know about their needs. I am not able to promise
anything right now, but we can make an attempt to organize help
there, depending on their interest. We would like to see this group
truly as an India group rather than just Bangalore.
