Times of India article on Free Software Movement

One fine day, I received a call from the Times of India (one of India’s leading newspapers) correspondent Ketan Tanna who was interested to write an article on the Free Software Movement in India and the Linux Users Group in Mumbai. The article was to feature in a series called Tribal Instincts wherein they reflect upon the community based involvement. Since I am aware of such a group, and also closely involved, I thought of coordinating with the people who are actively involved in Mumbai and also whom I know closely. The venue chosen was HBCSE. The correspondent interviewed Vihan, Anurag, Bipin, Alpesh and myself. The article focussed primarily on creating an awareness of the Free Software Movement in the city. It was good to share our views on FSF and moreover it was real fun posing for the group photograph 🙂 which were taken by Abhijit Batlekar.

Here is the link for the article. For further information on the Linux Users Group in Mumbai one can visit: http://www.ilug-bom.org.in
