Net, Michelle Caswell: <mlc23 at colombia.edu>
Accordiong to her presentation she is doing a senior thesis on the ways the
diasporic commuinity uses the web to rethink identities. Case studies.

www.hindunet.org (very useful - LARGE collection of resources)


www.hinduismToday.kauai.hi.us (excellent. Very helpful staff)

Hardly any webmasters or other contact perosns listed on web sites bother
