What's Jagriti about?

An interesting site Jagriti which describes itself thus: " Jagriti is a platform for application of Information Technology for the masses, with special focus on the needs of rural areas.It aims at deployment of IT Enabled Services for education, agricultural information, health, e-governance and other location-specific needs. Jagriti e-Sewa conducts studies in rural and semi urban areas about the services/product needs of these areas. These studies are conducted by Jagriti on its own or are sponsored through Academic/Research Institutes. If the studies indicate a positive contribution to the lifestyles and economy of these areas, the identified services/products are included in the Jagriti e-Sewa model." Looks neat from a distance! Also runs on GNU/Linux and Free Software.
