Greetings all,

I'm  G.T.RAO traveling across India to promote free software. We need
to build a grass roots campaign to take Free Software to the masses
and I need support from all of you to make it successful. And looking
for organizational partners to take it forward. Let me know if your
organization can help the campaign in any way. It could be as simple
as hosting a fossyatra meetup in your School/college/university/office
Limit is only your imagination.Let us know if you can help  in any
way.Please host a meetup near you, wherever you are, and share it in
your network.


The fundamental difference between the movements is in their values, their
ways of looking at the world, for the open source movement , the issue of
whether software should open source is a practical question, not an ethical
one. As one person put it “ open source is a development methodology, free
software is social movement “ for the open source movement, non-free
software is a sub optimal solution. For the free software movement,
non-free software is social problem and free software is the solution.Today
the young generation is facing challenging times, While many new
opportunities are opening for employment, they also need new skills and
Knowledge. The traditional course at higher education level are the engines
of knowledge advancement but it is job oriented course related to new area
of knowledge and employment which are the most use full ensuring a bright
future for the most deserving young generation. In this direction,  Foss
technologies are very efficient, free of cost ( Licence) and are suitable
to even large network systems. Further there is no need to paid ( Licence )
fee for the these technologies, once the IT user/students are conversant
with these technologies, they can easily take on software projects of their
own to earn a handsome amount and an independent entrepreneur or
consultant. They will have no need to depend upon others for employment.

This unique program is a one of it's kind initiative of the " foss"
awareness campaign in INDIA which will develop new skills in the IT
user/students within a short of span of months to enhance their
employability and earning power a million times.

We believe that encouragement of FOSS will result in:
* Development of the domestic IT industry
* Creation of jobs
* Encouragement of skills development and up gradation
* Enable localization of software to Indian languages
* Reduction of India's dependence on monopolistic proprietary software  vendors
* Encourage the usage of open standards
* Bridging the digital divide
* Rapid modernization and computerization of India's education system
* Technology up gradation of India's Small and Medium Enterprises
* Efficient usage of budget outlays for e-government
* Faster technology development through Collaborative Innovation.

• Open for all
• Willingness to learn

Any suggestions/volunteers welcome.
