Yes indeed. Most of the organising team including me went on holidays
to annul the unforeseen strain cast upon us by the conference. It was
indeed extremely strenuous for all of us, but we are very happy that
the conference went on very well, meticulously planned and organized
to the happiness of all the participants. Most of them acknowledged
this in verbose.

By the way, I am collecting photographs from other participants who
took several photos on various occassions. Since some of the
participants have just reached their homeland after the tour, it might
take a while to get some more pictures.

The post conference report, links to the next one, a representative
selection of photographs will be made available before the end of next

Further more, we need to submit audited report of the accounts to
TUGIndia Board and government of Kerala as well (who have funded
liberally to subsidize the costs of Indian participants). So lots of
work remains to be done in this respect.

True. The government of Kerala have shown a lot of interest in the
promotion of TeX, we need to submit a proposal to them at the
earliest. Also there are many more requests coming from different
parts of India to conduct tutorials at various institutions. TUGIndia
have to work on a plan to organize tutorials. It might be very kind of
subscribers in this list from different parts of India if they offer
their time and efforts to act as resource persons or organizers of
tutorials. Please post comments on how to organize tutorials, because
the momentum generated by TUG 2002 shall not be left diltuted to the
dismay of those who have sought assistance by way of tutorials.
