Dear Naveen

Thank you for sending me this in time.  India, together with Brazil and
South Africa as a group of 3 nations called IBSA ( India, Brazil, South
Africa ) earlier proposed something similar. It attracted a lot of heat at
the Internet Governance discussion lists and at the IGF.  But it looked like
India was not the prime contributor to the negative ideas expressed, but we
were wrong in making this assumption.

I have posted this in the discussion lists and have shared this with the IGF
community. Will also forward this to the Chatper list for discussion.

Thank you

Sivasubramanian M
