    I have read your article on Thomson Reuters Mobile Info Service for Indian Farmers that has expanded its service for India’s agricultural. Is it the same system as TCS has produced as mKrishi?

    I am a PhD candidate in one of the leading universities in the USA. My research is on ICT for Poor Countries. I am also working on e-Governance in India.

    I am particularly interested in how mKrishi or other products are working on the field and understand its socio-economic impacts on Indian villages. I am coming to New Delhi in December, 2008 for my research data collection.

    Do you stay in Delhi? Is it possible to meet you and discuss with you some of the crucial issues and get your guidance for my research in India?

    Would wait for your response.

    Regards,

      Thanks Armine for your offer. However, I couldn’t know what you expect me to do. I am writing articles only on my own site and blogs. These are not being sent to others (Google News, CNN, MSNBC, etc.) that you have mentioned. Do you want me to write exclusive articles for your site?

    Hey, I really enjoy your blog. I have a blog too in a totally unrelated field (Online Stock Trading) but I like to check in here on a regular basis, just to see what’s going on and it’s always interesting to say the least. It’s always entertaining what people have to say.
