True, but when your hand are full it is always useful to put your
ideas in front of people who may want to contribute in some way but
don't know how. In this case for example, I really do not have the
time/resources to approach an NGO and convince them to use a FOSS
solution. Someone like Dr. Nagarjun for example, has the necessary
credentials (and perhaps contacts as well) to be able to persuade
them. So all I am doing is putting forward an idea so that if
someone's interested and has the time and resources, he/she may do it.

Also, I wanted to know if someone's already had experience on these lines.

There should always be a 'think' before, during and after the 'Do' or
'Do not', it always helps get good results :)
