Recently I have written an application which can be used in the schools in
kerala as student admission register as per Kerala Educational Rules [KER].
This would make tasks such as T.C issuance, finding details about students
Platforms: GNU/Linux , M$ Windows
Comments please :)
Swaraj - "Swa" here is Microsoft and "raj" should be Government.
Even with all the pomp and gaiety that followed the new *radical* IT
Policy of the Government, the following were the papers forwarded to
the XIV Science Congress from IKM (Information Kerala Mission aliter
Information of Kerala for Microsoft).
The papers are
This shows the potency of Microsoft even as it reveals the impotency
and helplessness of the
IT Department in our State.

NEW DELHI: The government on Tuesday launched an integrated software
application for managing panchayati raj system in the country.
The application titled SWARAJ was launched by the Union Minister for
Panchayati Raj Mani Shankar Aiyar at the Microsoft - Government
Leadership Summit in the capital on Tuesday.
This application would help overcome the problems of multiple
applications and absence of proper Management Information Systems
(MIS), thus making the process of technological implementation in
rural area easier and more transparent.
What is meant by Swaraj?!!!!

Insh'allah some of the ideas that we come up with would be able to
influence the forthcoming policy in a positive direction. I have just
one request, which is to avoid jingoistic anti-MS statements that may
end up making the whole document unpalatable to policy makers (this is
specifically aimed at the Linux/FOSS community ;) Here the subtle

I'm just a noob/newbie in the world of fsf. While I have been
using ubuntu for last 4-5 yrs. in an individual capacity for desktop
use & part of the local LUG (Pune Linux Users Group - PLUG) as well. I
came to know about fsf-india couple of years back. then as time went
by & I saw FSF's work rising & doing good stuff in South my interest
was piqued. So on the auspicious eve of upcoming Diwali in a few days
I'll be traveling up north, Delhi, Jaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar meeting
friends as well as relatives for many years. If the same occasion
presents itself for meeting some fsf-friends it would be nice. I would
be travelling from 2nd Dec. to 24th Dec. I know its bad timing with
foss.in also happening during those days but that's the way the cookie
So if there are going to be any LUG meets or any way to meet up
with people please lemme know.
