That is due to the highly unreliable power situation here, even UPS
gets drained.

OK. I will talk to Rajkumar <raj@linuxense.com> whether he can host
this list in their US server. But he too is preoccupied with TUG2002
at the moment.

TUGIndia have 253 members, but all are widely spread all over the
country. The sad aspect is that we don't have more than five or six
active members from Trivandrum who are all very much preoccupied with
the conference. It is improper to expect people from Bangalore or
Chennai to assist during pre-conference days when we have tremendous
quantum of work. I know they will help us when they come for the
conference since several of them have already offered various kind of
help during TUG2002.
