Grant, thanks so much for bringing this to the fore. I am really so
very sorry that I will not be at the next Saturday's November meeting
(because of a conflict with a Central Asia Institute meeting which I
called and therefore cannot skip.) But I will catch up with you-all
afterward on this subject which, as you may recall, is dear to my heart
(I have pics of kids at a Hole in the Wall computer in Kalkaji, New
Deli, which I took in 2009).
