OK. lets keep 2PM. Unfortunately, due to the major exams of the
students, we may not be able to rope in many youngsters!

We do not have a CD-Burner there. I do have one on my personal machine
back home, but I may not have space for all the ISO's. Maybe somebody
around has the best setup - I can try a few CD's (TL6modified is on my
system of course). As far as I understand, these CDs can be freely
distributed (we could even setup a fund by selling them @50, if reqd.

 I may not have admin access to the comp, but pdf presentations and
win at TeX would work (though cumbersome).

TugIndiaDelhi is not a seperately registered body yet, though TUGIndia
is (under the state). have you read the minutes of the last meet (at
TUGIndia site).
