Just a short note to say the July issue of Linux For You is scheduled to
carry a story on FSFIndia. Some of the inputs for the piece were
collated by me, though I don't know what play the editorial will give
this story. Anyway, do lookout for it. The issue is just out from the
press, I'm told ... haven't seen it myself. FN

I think we missed out completely on the age of Sharat. A similar episode once had surfaced on a mailing list on php-db where another 'child prodigy' (one Tonu) was advising programmers at NASA a few years back. When Tonu was bombarded with advises, he had to cry out that it was time for him to have an ice-cream with his friends, which prompted 'the list' to check out his age.
I think we need to have a diplomacy while dealing with newbies and 'child prodigies'.
Cheers Sarath. Go ahead and do things. If someone tells you that something had been a mistake, correct it and proceed. We desperately need people like you.
