I believe that Ranga is incorrect in thinking that her plan for future
research and writings will not be of interest to listmembers, and
since she gives me the option (see below), I have decided to 
forward her message. Perhaps others could offer some reading
suggestions on Russia and China?/In solidarity, Jerry

Dear Jerry,

Thank you for the prompt clarification.

But we have not found the titles of all chapters except the last unnumbered chapter THE BLUNT WEAPON OF UNTOUCHABILITY. in the OPEL digest 161. Hence we wrote about it. 

Regarding the proposed work to be taken up:

I have brought out the English version of my book on 'Caste' question a month ago and since then I have been reading some books. My intention is to introduce all the major works or give summary of all works of Marx and Engels in Telugu. Later I would like to read various books in English, know  and write an introduction to what had happened in Russia and China since the founding of the communist parties and how they ruled. I have many queiries about what had happened in those countries with reference to many issues like how they dealt with 'interest, price, profit, bonds' and what changes occurred in the sphere of family, school, media and so on.  No single book gave me satisfactory information so far. I would like to first read and know and then write an introduction to Telugu readers among whom there are genuine people who would like to know such things in the interest of the revolution in India.

I don't thing this plan of mine interests any person who follows OPEL digest. So you need not put this in the digest, though I do not have any objection or problem.
