I am a student of the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER)- mohali. Presently I am in first year. I have been doing some work in the field of education for past 3 years but I was really active only in the past year. I would like to help you in chalking out a syllabus suitable for many state boards and the central boards. This attempt might work very well in english itself though publication in hindi would not be a bad idea either. However I doubt if some agency would be supporting this initiative. I can try to talk to some officials nearby but the problem is that I do not have proper credentials to represent any body. However, I will try to do whatever I can. Let me know, if I can be of some use. > > --- On Wed, 31/8/11, Martin A. Walker <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > From: Martin A.
