I read minutes of  a IlugDelhi meeting held at IIT  Delhi a few months
back and noticed that gathering  was not impressive. The venue has the
advantage of  having thousands of  students and my impression  is that
none of them attended that meeting. IMO, a sad thing :-(

Of course  any activity  need money,  but promotional  talks/ lectures
need to be free.

May be thing  of commercial vendor supporting such  events or TugIndia
having  a  commerical wing,  who  generate  money  from TeX  work  and
development work and a  part of thet may be used  for promotion of TeX
and friends.


It usually  takes more than  three weeks  to prepare a  good impromptu
speech.                                                  --- Mark Twain
