Thanks Arun for signing our petition. It is undoubtedly work of all of 
us here. Needless to say that the credit goes to uncountable number of 
FOSS activists from India and around the world. Of course we all will 
help boost this activity in all possible ways so as to reach our goal.
Thank you all once again.
