Sorry, I missed your mail. This Saturday afternoon we are doing a
workshop on Ruby on Rails as a continuation of our earlier meetups. We
hope to get more contributors to diapsora from Pune. If you are okay
may be you can take 15-20 minutes to talk about your experience. It
would set the tone for the workshop too.

Interested folks can sign up at

You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
