Dear All

As I had mentioned in a previous posting (and as was so touchingly welcomed by so many of of you), Shiju Alex is joining us to lead our Indic Languages initiatives.  In this mail (, I had indicated that he would join around September-October.  

I'm really pleased to inform you that he has now joined India Programs (on September 24th.)  

Indic Languages is an important priority for us - and Shiju intends to start work on this urgently.  He'll be in touch shortly on this matter.

Welcome aboard, Shiju!

Warmest Regards,
