Hi! I'm Gaurav Chachra. I worked for OLPC as a volunteer during the final year of my undergraduate chemical engineering course. Now I am working with Indian Oil Corporation. Being busy in my job, I'm no longer working for OLPC.

The First Step
As a first step to spread awareness about OLPC in India, I teamed up with two students of my class, Rahul Vats and Bhola Nath and prepared a presentation. We worked together and on February 5th, 2008 we delivered an awareness presentation on OLPC at a seminar in my University. Well... the response was as I expected. The audience showed a lot of interest in OLPC project and many came forward to join the mission.
Following are the main developments that have taken place:
- A Student Chapter of OLPC India was formed.
- We delivered presentations at Panjab University (5th Feb), Chandigarh Science Congress (14th March) & IIT Roorkee (28th March)
- We worked on content development projects for the XO according to the Indian needs.
