      ***Please circulate to all interested parties***
      This is to announce the Cypherpunks-India mailing list. The list is
      for cypherpunks in India, and for those who want to track the
      convergence of cryptography, politics and society here.
      As you know, I volunteered to organise cypherpunks fleshmeets in
      Bangalore a few months ago. We had an initial meet with some hoopla,
      along with the Linux-India monthly meet in Bangalore. Public meetings,
      however, have not happened since then (as opposed to the private
      meetings and interactions - you know who you are.). It's been
      difficult co-ordinating with people, who are mostly madly busy and
      geographically distributed throughout India. This list, therefore, is
      a first step towards giving some structure to the various
      behind-the-scenes interactions we've been having, and to spread
      awareness of crypto and how it impacts commerce and politics today.
      The list is kindly hosted by Vipul Ved Prakash, who needs no
      introduction to crypto observers here. Vipul also hosts
      http://munitions.vipul.net - which is an archive of crypto software
      that is mirrored across multiple locations. Vipul also was one of the
      finalists in the 3rd Annual Obfuscated Perl Contest with his
      dimunitive implementation of the Russian GOST algorithm.
      To subscribe, use any ONE of the following URLs:
      <mailto:cpunks-india-request at lists dot vipul dot net?subject=subscribe>
      In the next few days, as things evolve, we will put up some more
      information at the URLs above.
      Thanks for all your support, and see you on the list!
