Sorry for the late notice.
Atul Chitnis, Linux/FOSS evangelist, a founder of foss.in, (amongst
many other things) is in Pune this weekend. I believe he will have
some free time tomorrow afternoon (Sunday, 29th March, around 3pm). So
if there is enough interest in PLUG for a discussion and/or talk with
him can be arranged (it will be at the usual place for PLUG meetings -
7th Floor, SICSR). Let me know - I'll set up something if I get enough
He is also giving a "startup" oriented talk "The world is changing"
tomorrow at 11am, in case anybody is interested. Details at:
