Many of us have been less than successful in writing to India for
information. I've found that our chances are SLIGHTLY increased if we
include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Occasionally, a small cheque
is helpful (the average Indian earns only around 60 rupees a day - a
small sum in any Western currency).
I have a small number of Indian stamps for just this purpose
which I would be willing to trade with members of this mailing list, if
they needed them. It costs 11 rupees to send an airmail letter to
anywhere in the world from India.
I also have an Indian cheque account. If anyone needs it, I could
write small cheques to Indian authorities, churches, etc if it would
help. Let me know!
