I hope that your proposal gets through. I can try to join you in Bangalore
for the same.

Though I have not had much deep insight into hacking into Sugar as other
aspects of OLPC takes most of time. But I will like to take this opportunity
to get started on it. So if I understand rightly the  first thing I need to
do is brush up my Python Programming skills.

Also how about having a workout session on story telling activity in sugar
or it can be part of Project Day itself.
