Thanks for recommending my name Ramdas. But it is more than cash or
sponsorship for me since I involved in Python since 2003 - it has been
an a great ride. I am happy to say that almost everything that I did using
Python was a success and at least a couple of my efforts recognized
Next year I expect to be able to play a role in the PSF itself - things
will be more clear after PyCon US 2010.
I think that a VPs role is perhaps more suited to someone who has been
in the thick of things w.r.t Python in India recently and I have been
out of touch the last 1 year or so. My Python activities have been limited
to filing bugs in Python issue tracker and helping fix a few :)
I would suggest your own name for this role, considering how you
are involved with Python so much in your day-to-day activities and
w.r.t your business. Considering that you are well-known in the govt
and other circles using Django and other free software, I think you
could do a more effective job of this position.
I suggest Ramdas's name to this position. I will be happy to take
up any other role in the society once the details are finalized.

Actually, I suggest Srikanth's name itself to this position. Srikanth
has had a lot of experience managing the affairs of Mahiti for a long
time, and he is sure to do due diligence to the job of managing the
funds. Proposing Srikanth as the treasurer.
