Dear all,

Greetings from Control Arms Foundation of India,

We have got a positive response from the educational institutions across the
country, along with the request to extend the entries closing date because
of examination period

We also felt that many interested students may not participate as it
coincides with the examination. Keeping all these things in mind, we have
postponed the last day of entries.

The revised date for receiving Essay and Painting entries from the schools
and college students is 30 April 2008.

By reviewing this, we look for greater participation from the student's
community and hope you shall encourage more students of your institution to
participate in the contest.

The Control Arms Foundation of India (CAFI) is pleased to announce an essay
and painting contest on the topic *"What armed gun violence has done to my
country?"* The painting contest is open to School students only. Students
