Hello Sharbendu, Pankaj, and other friends,
I am a volunteer with AID (Association for India's Development) at the  MIT chapter. As you might know, AID has already sent in $25,000 for immediate needs, and our Chennai chapter is deeply involved in relief work in the field. The volunteers in Chennai have also undertaken sending of materials like medicines to Sri Lanka. If you could identify people in A&N who can recieve materials and organize relief efforts, we can direct funds and supplies to the islands. > For people (especially from overseas) who wish to make donations, you could refer them to the website http://www.aidindia.org/CMS/ . I can  personally vouch for the AID volunteers in Chennai in that they are committed and sincere to making sure that the weakest people are the ones to benefit.> Please feel free to contact me if you need any information about AID in general, and our chapter. We are looking to support longer term projects on the islands working through grassroot organizations.
