  4. Srividya,

    Thanks for your comment.

    You are right in mentioning that we began this blog with information about major cul-fests across the country.

    However, we are certainly open to information about opportunities at all universities.

    If you know of any such opportunities do let us know using Suggest an Opportunity.
