Dear Indologists,

The earlier messaged got garbled; apparently I had difficulty uploading my dos 
text. Here is a revised version. Sorry about the duplication.

Sushil Jain

Since some of you have shown interest and appreciation in my
earlier posting, and to those who have asked for further
information on the subject, I post herewith some more references,
not only about images in school textbooks but also in other print
media, that you may wish to consult for writing an article/paper
on 'Images of Stereotypes of India and Indians'. I may have
missed some publications due to my neglect of this subject for
the pastseveral years. If it is the case please do post your
findings to the list.
