I enjoyed reading the attachment, unfortunately it contained only two pages.  It seemed that there were more.  Has there been a technology problem?  If there are more pages, I would very much appreciate being able to read the.

You may remember, we met in Vaishali a few years ago to exchange views about use of the roman script for Marathi.  I had intended to do something about that.  I have had health (eyesight) problems since that time, consequently reduced my serious activities somewhat.  In the meanwhile, devanagari keyboards have progressed.  Particularly on the iPad and iPhone, there is quite a good one.  There is still room for improvement.

Anyway..it was very good to see your text in pure Marathi, so clear and yet powerful.  I am not talking about use of devanagari, but the language.  It is particularly poignant, since so many people in Maharashtra are unable to , or do not care to write without interspersing many English words.  No doubt, this is a normal process of language change, but it is so rapid that one fears for the survival of the beautiful mother tongue.  I apologise for writing this in English.  I have lived in the UK for 52 years of my the 65 years of my life.  Writing in Marathi is now becoming a strain with memory/ vocabulary deteriorating. Wishing that were not so.

Please let know if further pages are available.  Thank you.  Best regards.
