  Dear Friend:

  The Goodling Amendment, an anti-India measure, was defeated 169 to 256
on
July 21 on the floor of the House of Representatives.  Rep. William F.
Goodling (R-PA) offered the amendment to the State Department
Authorization
bill because New Delhi voted with Washington less than 25% of the time
at
the United Nations. Rep. Gary L. Ackerman (D-NY), Co-Chair of the
Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans, led the effort to
defeat
the India-bashing amendment.
  For the full story and further action required of Indian-Americans,
please
visit the Lobby for India website
http://www.indiatogether.org/petitions/lobby.htm

  Also look at the new features, and major changes and information of
value
to Indian Americans profiled on the site just yesterday.

  Read all about the India Caucus. Is your House Representative a member
of
the India Caucus? If not, persuade him to join.

  Would you like to write a letter to the editor of your local
newspaper?
Things are made easy for you.

  Do you like to keep up-to-date on news about India-America relations,
visit the site regularly.

  If you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

  A request: Would it be possible to relay this message to your
friends/relations/associates in the U S?

  Thanks and best wishes,
