Hi Richmond,

Well I couldn’t agree more if that is the case, but that was 2 minutes of googling but the general suggestion of contacting “good” Sanskrit related organisations of watch you no doubt know a good few still has merit. And you never know who or what might turn up.

Anyway hope all goes well with the campaign
