I am deeply indebted to all those who have come forward of their own initiatives to offer to host these events. Each event is being supported entirely by the local community. I did not engage any consultant in India to facilitate the events. These wonderful people have done this work out of support for my writings over the years. I thank each and every one of them.


Given this very hectic schedule, all other events that have been offered are being scheduled for my second India tour for this book, which will be from mid January to mid February, 2012. Already, events are being planned then in Pondicherry, Auroville, IIT Kharagpur and Banaras Hindu University. Those interested to organize an event are encouraged to contact me soon with concrete proposed details.
