Dear Shivaji Pawar and Unmesh Bagwe,
I am a British citizen and a doctoral candidate, in moral, social, and political philosophy, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I am working under the supervision of Prof. Elizabeth Anderson, whose The imperative of integration was recently published by Princeton University Press. My doctoral dissertation is entitled The duty to miscegenate: From sexual racism to cross-racial companionship. I write to you having found greatly inspirational your website, here:
I am currently writing an application for funding to join you in India in October, November, and December 2012. I am applying for a Junior Fellowship, from the American Institute of Indian Studies: In my research, I aim to answer three questions:
  1. What policies of the Indian government express esteem for or incentivise marriage between Dalits and Caste Hindus?
  2. How successful have these policies of the Indian government been in destigmatising marriage between Dalits and Caste Hindus?
  3. Could and should the US government adopt some similar policy that expresses esteem for or incentivises marriage between blacks and whites?

I know that some of India's policies include rewarding newlywed intercaste spouses with a cash prize of up to R50000, with an interest-free loan to set up a business, and even with a medal.

Furthermore, I'm aware of Delhi's policy of giving preference, when allocating school places, to the children of intercaste couples. Where can I find a comprehensive list of all policies of this sort? Where can I find a systematic analysis of the success or failure of these policies?

I greatly look forward to your reply.

Dear Mr Pawar and Mr Bagwe,
I am a PhD student of sociology at the University of Maryland College Park. I specialize in the study of interaction on the internet and have been analyzing caste based matrimonial websites. As part of my research, I came across your website pratibimb mishra vivah. Since it was different from the other matrimonial websites, it captured my interest.
Your website provides a lot of details about the inspiration behind the pratibimb mishra vivah, and what is expected of users in this website. Would it be possible for me to talk to some of the users (either past or current) of the website and discuss their motivations for using this website, and why they chose to use the internet as a medium?   
I am currently in India to visit my family - till August 2nd, and after that I have to go back for my classes to the US. If some of your users agree to talk to me, I can converse with them either through the phone, or using skype etc.

Dear Shivaji,

I want out group to be much more vibrant. Though I am still going through this phase and looking for help, but would also like to help any and every person looking for such sort of help. I am still not sure how do I get added to the group so that I can receive all mail exchanges. So that I can forward and share views of mine and others.

Please guide how to be active member. Also wanted to update blog daily and make it a very vibrant blog/ site / group. Also wanted to know if you know some one who would have experience in mediating in such situations and could help. Also if you know any JAT.

But, yes please let me know how to be active member of this group.

Kind Regards,

Vivek Mahajan9930976567
