Hello Vinayak,

On Sunday, 15 October, we have organized a lecture by internet and telecom
pioneers, Carl Malamud and Sam Pitroda, in collaboration with NUMA.

Carl and Sam will talk about their efforts in India, US, and other
countries to help promote universal access to knowledge. They’ll discuss
the constitutional underpinnings of this right in India and some of the
information they’ve been making available, including 3 lakh books from the
Digital Library of India, 19,000 official standards from the Bureau of
Indian Standards, and a raft of other resources such as the entire
Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi.

*They will discuss how key laws such as the Right to Information make this
possible, but will focus more on how the world of open source and the
Internet can turn that promise into a reality.* Universal access to
knowledge is the great unmet promise of our times, and they will talk about
what we can do, collectively, to make this dream possible.

Please consider this email an invitation to attend the event. Your
participation and insights will add considerable value to the
conversations. *Do note that while the event is free, the venue has limited
seating.* You must RSVP to confirm attendance.
