Hi,

I have been using Ruby for quite some time now -- I use it for most of
my internal work-related stuff (where I don't have to use _a_
particular language). In the past I have used Python. I used to
evangelize about Python in the past, but no longer (my reasons, if you
care: http://www.livejournal.com/users/premshree/50417.html).

So I have been speaking on Ruby whenever I get the opportunity. I'll
be speaking on another upcoming event in India (at Pune, to be
specific; details at http://gnunify.sicsr.ac.in/shedule.shtml). The
thing is, I have not been able to find many Ruby programmers who talk
about Ruby and stuff -- or if they do exist, they're not interested in
spreading Ruby.

Through this forum I'd like to specifically address Ruby users from
India. I have been doing my best to evangelize about Ruby through
various confs. But, this is not an easy task -- it requires a lot more
evangelists. Ruby, at the moment, is in a position where it _requires_
evangelism first, then education (a fine line here, but I hope you get
the idea).

I'd really like it if I could hear from Ruby users in India -- so
that, if possible, we could form some kind of a user group, and help
in promoting Ruby.

*hopeful*
