we at FSUG-Chennai, (from the demo@schools program) are planning to do
the same. Already a few other FSUG members have join us in this effort
and  we  have  just  started  chalking out  various  books  and  their
contents.  The writing will  start at  full swing,  we just  need more
volunteers and a bit of planning. do join us.

I wrote some instructions that  could serve as some sort of guidelines
to you:


| Speak true to your conscience, deliberate                        |
| falsehood scorches your senses                                   |
