Re: chirag

[Topics under debate]: GOOD GOVERNANCE

Dr.(?) Sabhlok,

Thanks for the compliments.

I would love the challenge, if it has everybody's consent. One thing,
though: I will have to research the topic. That will take some time.

I have a suggestion: How about making the process of preparing the flyer
also a part of the debate? One guy (me, or anyone else who volunteers)
could coordinate the whole thing. I could initiate most of the the
discussions based on evidence or ideas I may have come across, but
anybody can suggest areas that should be looked into in the preparation
of the flyer. This would be a conscious effort on everybody's part. This
would decentralise the process itself.

BTW, I have been a little sceptical about the power of flyers in
convincing people. What has the experience been?
