   I have the pleasure of telling you that on this 23rd the first
   book wholly written in LaTeX in devangari font ( and prob. the
   first such book in an Indian language (pl. correct me on this))
   was launched. This book is titled 'chhand chhand pe kumkum',
   written by Dr. Wagish Shukla of IIT Delhi, is a criticism
   of a famous poem 'Ram ki shakti Puja' by Nirala and is around
   330 pages thick - everything except the cover is in LaTeX and
   free SW i.e. debian Linux.

Deleciously wonderful.

   This book has been published jointly by Mahatma Gandhi
   Antarrashtriya Hindi Vishwavidyalaya and Prabhat prakashan.

Do we have a chance to see a chapter of the book or a few specimen
pages in any online format in your website?
