As an alternative to spending on a member from the Fedora Committee(s) 
or Boards, you could consider having a video conference. Paul did that 
for the NIT Calicut meet and by all reports it was a success.

Additionally, there are a significant number of developers and 
contributors to Fedora out of India who would be an excellent resource 
pool to talk, demonstrate and share insights into Fedora as a project 
and as a community.

Hop on to #fedora-india on any given Sunday at around 1830 hours India 
time for regular meetings and exchange of notes.
