Just to clarify that Maitreyi Deshpande is no longer the Hon. Secretary of BORI. She has been replaced a few months ago by Mr. Arun Barve. For the changes that have occurred, take a look at the following news report:
I was in Pune in June for three weeks and gave a talk at the BORI, but did not see Maitreyi Deshpande. I would suggest that you write to Mr. Arun Barve who is now the Hon. Secretary.
Dear Colleague,I discover your query only today. I have got a BORI's consent to get copies from the IGNCA, a few months ago. I know your concern is different, yet you may try to write also to Maitreyee Deshpande, Hon. Secretary, BORI, Pune: <email@example.com>, who has been quite helpful in my case.Best,Prof. Lyne Bansat-BoudonDirecteur d'EtudesEcole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, sciences religieuses,Sorbonne,45-47, rue des Ecoles,75005 Paris -- France.Le 24 juil. 12 à 13:11, Benjamin Fleming a écrit :Dear All,Thanks to those on and off list for the contact info for Shreenand. I now have three working emails through which I can contact him. Hopefully I will be able to rustle up the manuscript that I need in this way.Best,BF

> Hello Ben,
> The email address for BORI that you gave is the old/out-dated address. Their new address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I was in Pune most of June 2012 and been to BORI recently. I think you can use this email address and direct your message to Bapat.
