It is my pleasure to make available Marathi Primary School ebooks for the XO laptop for children in India,
I wrote to the Maharashtra State Govt Education Secretary informing him about this project - just to be clear about copyrights etc. I have not heard from anyone so I assume that there is no objection.
I would like to thank the following folks:
It would be great if few of you can test the books. After downloading on XO, open the Browser. On left navigation, under Other, you will see link to the ebooks.
After testing, it would be great to have volunteers help to pass these ebooks to the school in Khairat where real students can use them on their XO.

Tomorrow, May 4th is the International Day Against DRM.
Read the press release:
A product that has a DRM is a non-free product. Its intention is to
deny you atleast one of the 4 Freedoms. So I request you to goto
www.defectivebydesign.org, signup and participate in the protest
against DRM. Our goal is to make all manufacturers release the same
product without DRM in the future.
Please JOIN now. We need your help.
I request the support of media people (Newspaper, TV etc) in this
mailinglist to spread the importance of this campaign.
